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.

Licensed massage therapist Angel Seals understands that relaxation isn?t one size fits all. To help clients achieve the physical and emotional benefits of massage, she customizes head-to-toe treatments for each individual who reclines on her table. Angel listens carefully to their issues while fine-tuning sessions, addressing concerns such as muscle and joint pain, stress, or headaches. Then she devotes the full amount of time to the massage itself, never starting the clock before clients have removed their ceremonial sashes, undressed to their comfort level, and settled onto the padded massage table. Guests stay draped and cozy in the heated room while muscles are soothed with kneads and ears are treated to soft music.
