When interviewed by Holistic Health magazine in 2006, Dr. Scott Denny proclaimed, “There is a great synergy when conventional medicine and oriental medicine are applied together.” This holistic harmony is readily apparent at Integrative Hospital Associates and MultiCare Clinic, where Dr. Denny has devoted his life to treating acute and chronic health issues with an approach that integrates the healing philosophies of both Eastern and Western medicine. Together with his personable team of chiropractic physicians, nutrition experts, and massage therapists, Dr. Denny works tirelessly to enhance clients' well-being through acupuncture and an array of other therapies designed to help combat addiction, disease, and habitual sleepsurfing. Oriental-medicine techniques, such as herbal medicine and the Gua Sha healing process, work alongside services based in conventional science, such as cold-laser therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Among other accolades, Dr. Denny is the 11-time recipient of the Continuing Education Excellence Award in Pain Management and has served as the President of the American Academy of Pain Management and the head of acupuncture services at Holy Cross Hospital Feldman Center for Optimal Health. The compassionate doctor has been featured in local news media for his “multifaceted approach” to treating chronic pain and is also the inventor of Dodai Fusion Therapy, a combination of ancient Japanese manual therapy and meridian-based acupuncture techniques.
With the belief that many of the body’s maladies and chronic pain stem from spinal misalignment, Dr. Michael Cohen and his staff dedicate themselves to helping patients achieve overall wellness through drug-free, holistic treatments. Specializing in auto-accident injuries, neck and back pain, and chronic headaches, Dr. Cohen employs such healing arts as K laser therapy and spinal decompression. Both techniques utilize advanced technology designed to reduce pain. The staff also tends to achy muscles during massage sessions with a combination of precise pressures and long, soothing strokes.
At Wellness and Acupuncture, doctors Howard and Adam Moskow take a natural approach to healing. A father-son team with more than 40 years of combined experience, the Moskows mend clients suffering from such common conditions as arthritis, back pain, anxiety, and more. To do so, they rely on acupuncture especially, but also integrate other holistic methods into their repertoire, including herbal medicines and mud therapy, a treatment that utilizes natural earth clays for therapeutic purposes.
The Zerona advanced laser treatments may help melt away inches and shape the body's often-unpredictable topography. Using the Erchonia laser scanner, this non-invasive therapy is designed to target fat cells beneath skin without the painful incisions, lengthy recovery periods, and anesthesia-induced confessions of tax evasion common in traditional liposuction. During the approximately one-hour sessions, clients rest as a trained technician guides the laser over a chosen treatment area such as the waist, hips, thighs, or arms. The liquefied fatty deposits should seep from their homes on love handles and underarm wings and may be tossed from the body's VIP room by natural detoxification bouncers.
The licensed massage and cranial-sacral therapists of Healing Hands Medical Massage administer specialized manual therapies in order to ease physical pain and promote healthy minds. Through gentle manipulations of the neck and skull, the therapists correct restrictions and imbalances in the cranial-sacral system, striving to relieve chronic aches—such as those associated with migraines or fibromyalgia—and emotional stress. During reflexology treatments, they stimulate specific pressure points located on the feet, each area tied to a larger bodily system. The sessions promote increased relaxation and are ideal for clients who never want to take off their Hulk costumes. Those willing to expose their real back muscles can enjoy Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, or hot-stone massages. Healing Hands Medical Massage also provides corporate services such as onsite chair massages and acupuncture.
At Points 2 Wellness, acupuncturist Dr. Carly Rachman brings more than 4,000 clinical hours of experience to her family business as she and her team work to relieve clients' chronic pains, stress, and disorders in a warm family atmosphere. Dr. Rachman and her staff personalize their treatments to each client's individual needs, and on addition to standard acupuncture, they can administer cupping treatments to increase blood flow, gentle gua sha scraping, moxibustion, and other techniques.
