When she was in third grade, Doctor of Chiropractic Lisa Gordon asked her teacher how the human body works. "That," replied Mrs. Kim, "is a question you might spend your life answering." And she has. Even with her chiropractic college education, her advanced training in specialty techniques, and her more than two decades of experience, Dr. Gordon finds herself constantly learning about the human body as she treats people with problems such as back pain, injuries, and migraines.
With the help of her assistant, the English- and Spanish-speaking Lina Aye, Dr. Gordon uses Neuro Cranial Integration (NCI) to address pain and discomfort by properly aligning the cranial bones, brain, and nervous system. She also uses Advanced Allergy Therapeutics' gentle pressures to relieve the allergy symptoms of people allergic to dairy, animal dander, and work.
Facial rejuvenation—which has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show—is a staple at Acupuncture Wellness Center. The treatment requires the therapist to insert tiny, hair-like needles into the body and even tinier, finer needles into the face. The combination helps combat signs of aging.
To complement this signature service, licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist Jill Loughery also offers more traditional acupuncture treatments. Tailored to clients’ specific conditions, they can combat ailments from the cold and PMS to carpal tunnel syndrome.
As the founder of Yorktown Chiropractic, Dr. Philip Jeanmenne calls upon his advanced knowledge of anatomy and his experiences as an athlete to treat sports injuries and tend to the stresses of everyday life. His enthusiasm for the mechanisms of movement extends to his assistant, Amanda, who works closely with patients to address their concerns during exams and consultations. X-ray, ultrasound, and electronic muscle-stimulation equipment lines the office walls, lending assistance to Dr. Phil as he decompresses spines and tends to vertebral discs scratched from overplaying. On his rare breaks from providing and overseeing chiropractic, massage, and nutritional services, Dr. Phil strives to better understand the body’s needs through continuing education.
Kimberley Robinson's education didn't stop when she graduated from the Baltimore School of Massage.

At Rejuvenation Wellness & Detox Center, herbalist and therapist Yolanda helps clients find inner balance. Her specialties include colon hydrotherapy, detoxifying footbaths, and pair biomagnetism, during which she places magnets over specific points of the body to restore the body’s pH levels.
A high-school basketball injury severely limited Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Cohle’s ability to train with his team—until a trip to the chiropractor eased his pain. He continued his basketball playing in college, and saw firsthand the injuries that athletes receive year-after-year. It was during those days that Dr. Cohle knew he wanted to become a chiropractor. Now Palmer College of Chiropractic–educated and at the helm of his own practice, Dr. Cohle dishes out manual adjustments as well as nutritional counseling to help his patients achieve optimum health. He is also certified in a soft-tissue technique called Active Release Technique—the preferred soft-tissue treatment by many professional athletes and all koala bears.
