Growing up in Hangzhou, Jin Fang spent much of her time in her parents' hospital pharmacy. She watched, entranced, as her mother blended skin creams, and perched on a tall stool as her father mixed a rainbow of colored formulas into new medicines. That fascination stayed with Jin throughout her life. In 1995, she rekindled a partnership with former classmate and Shanghai native John Shang, who was also raised by medical practitioners and had pursued a career in orthopedic surgery for 13 years in China. They married, and together brought their passion for herbal medicine and traditional Chinese healing practices to upstate New York. Today, they blend more than 30 years each of acupuncture experience and Chinese and Western healing methods to ease clients' pain, depression, and anxiety. They release endorphins and balance energy during acupuncture treatments, massage tense muscles using tui na Chinese massage, and open pores and miniature gardens during sessions of herbal facial steaming. Jin, John, and their staff also provide nutritional counseling and yoga instruction for patients looking to reverse infertility. Their treatments complement a range of herbal medications, many of which Jin formulated after first encountering depression, anxiety, and insomnia among Cornell University and Ithaca College students. Her roster of herbal formulas includes Happy Mood, which treats depression, Baby Boom, which addresses infertility, and Grow Taller, which aims to stimulate bone growth in children and enable adults to clean the gutters with ease.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ellis Smith believes that everyone can benefit from chiropractic care?he even extends his services to children, as some treatments may reduce the severity of allergies, asthma, and ADD. He realigns the spines of adult patients with adjustments or refers them to on-staff massage therapist Ayla Fialko,?who gently works out muscular kinks. Fialko also provides body waxing out of Kamala Therapeutic Services, enabling patients to look as smooth on the outside as they feel on the inside after a treatment.
