Beneath the Renew Spa's logo, three words stand side-by-side: Art. Science. Aesthetics. Each has its place in the spa's palette of facials, laser treatments, cosmetic injections, and massages. With an artful eye, the all-female staff adorns and protects faces with mineral makeup from Jane Iredale. During facial peels, aestheticians employ the science of acidity to renew skin cells and refresh memories of chemistry class fieldtrips to the spa. Renew Spa is also home to a versatile fleet of lasers that technicians use to slow hair growth, tighten the skin, and shrink down fat cells.

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." These words, said by Thomas Edison in 1902, serve as the mission statement for the holistic health-care providers at Edison Health & Wellness. Because health is multifaceted, their treatments are as well, combining acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and nutritional changes to treat issues such as back pain, an addiction to cigarettes, or headaches caused by unsolvable math problems. The practice's doctor can also administer acupressure, delivering the benefits of acupuncture without the use of needles.

After a motorcycle accident left his 16-year-old body injured and in pain, Douglas Schwan faced a choice that would end up defining his future. Rather than having steel rods surgically implanted in his back, he paid his first visit to a chiropractor, whose integrated, noninvasive methods left an impression on his career path as well as his body.
Fast-forward to the present day: after three decades as a chiropractor, Dr. Schwan continues to distinguish himself through publications and his daily work at Schwan Chiropractic & Acupuncture. He approaches each patient’s condition with a philosophy of integrated wellness, drawing on acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine as well as chiropractic adjustments. He often blends these techniques to ease complaints such as chronic pain and stress from working long hours in the office or as a human bridge.
In line with his holistic philosophy, Dr. Schwan sometimes employs acupuncture to help patients to lose weight, quit smoking, and fight fine lines and wrinkles with both needle and needle-free acupuncture. Face-lift acupuncture treatments stimulate acupuncture points with rubber electrodes, smoothing out complexions without the risk of surgery or the embarrassingly high-pitched voice associated with helium injections. Dr. Schwan’s embrace of modern technology extends to computerized acupuncture, which digitally charts meridians to determine the exact locations of physical ailments.
