Rizzo-Ovia, a national board-certified acupuncturist, employs her know-how in traditional Chinese medicine and nutritional counseling to mend patients' minds, bodies, and spirits. She greets new clients with an initial acupuncture consultation, which determines proper treatment based on symptoms, diet, lifestyle, skin condition, and exoskeleton thickness. In sessions ranging between 15 and 45 minutes, Rizzo-Ovia gently peppers her patients with hair-thin needles inserted at selected points along the body's meridians. Like miniature football linebackers, the sterile, disposable needles open the body's blocked energy pathways to facilitate the flow of Qi, blood, and other vital substances.

Q&A with Dr. Hanoch Talmor, Director

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?

Our business environment is electromagnetic- and radio-frequency/microwave-safe. The atmosphere is very peaceful and relaxing thanks to our Biosyntonie protection and harmonization devices. This creates the resonance of natural frequencies that you will experience in nature on the beach, forest, mountains, etc.

What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?

We treat our patients as we would like to be treated, and we are very flexible. All our patients become our good friends. Our staff treats our patient and clients with utmost respect and patience. One of the main mottos is: We never judge anybody.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Our goal is to educate people and help them achieve healing, better health, well-being, and longevity. They learn to activate the built-in perfection of the body, which has the potential to heal any health problem. We have many healing and self-help modalities that allow clients to pick and choose what is most appropriate for them.

Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?

One of the favorites is Biosyntonie. This technology uses natural resonance, which energizes the body and enhances well-being. It also provides devices that protect people from electromagnetic and radio-frequency devices, such as WiFi, cell phones, etc. In today's environment with all the WiFi [people] use, it is essential to protect people's well-being.

The signs of weight gain, aging, and heart disease tend to develop gradually, but board-certified internist Dr. James DeStephens and his staff stop them with quickness. Among their many services, they offer VelaShape cellulite-reduction treatments, Juvederm fillers, and a weight-loss program that gets the most out of workouts with a steady dose of vitamin B12 shots and nutritional counseling. They even offer enhanced external-counterpulsation therapy, a technique designed to help boost the flow of blood and stave off cardiovascular maladies without surgery. The therapy works by strapping inflatable cuffs around the patient’s legs and then inflating and deflating the cuffs to increase the flow of blood to the heart more effectively than a visit from three ghosts on Christmas Eve.
