He can’t say that he invented the laser light, but Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Carella does take credit for the development of laser spine care. During each laser-therapy treatment, he stimulates acupuncture points across the body with a laser light and manipulates the spinal nerve root with an LED light. The therapeutic glow from these devices helps soothe chronic pains, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, nerve-root irritation, backaches, neck aches, and post-handshake shudders. Though not all of Dr. Carella’s treatment techniques—which include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and hypnosis—are his own inventions, he performs each with the same level of care that has earned him the nickname “The Gentle Chiropractor.”

Dr. Carella has mastered his technique throughout more than 40 years in business, a lengthy and accomplished career that even Dr. Carella himself didn't predict. He was diagnosed with a structural lumbar dysfunction, which led him to research its treatment methods. That's when he discovered the field of chiropractic care. He wrote a textbook on hypnosis in 1975 and contributed to a book that offered treatment methods for those suffering from back pain. He also belongs to several medically based associations and academies, and his skills have brought him such high-profile clients as football Hall of Famer Bobby Bell, Grammy Award–winner Roberta Flack, and professional wrestler Harley Race.

In her quest to relieve clients' chronic pain, Dr. Shawnda Gross of Natural Body Works LLC embraces the intersection of Western chiropractic care and Eastern medical philosophy. A board-certified chiropractor and chiropractic acupuncturist, Dr. Gross believes in the importance of using minimally invasive procedures to address pain while also targeting underlying structural and energetic imbalances. With the help of manual and instrument-based chiropractic techniques, she bolsters neurological function by restoring alignment along the spinal column. Her acupuncture treatments, meanwhile, jump-start the body's natural healing processes with thin needles or laser heat trained on key energy meridians, easing the pain caused by anything from sciatica to constrictive bubble-wrap clothing. Similarly, the center's massage therapists help ease skeletal, muscular, and neurological aches with specialized modalities that locate and treat trouble spots.

While getting her Master's Degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Donna Tatum developed her own attitude and approach to skincare, herbal medicine, and essential oils.

As a result, she uses a holistic approach when administering her treatments. In addition to traditional and cosmetic acupuncture, she also provides all-natural facials that use local and organic ingredients in addition to antioxidant herbs. During the course of every visit, she also dispenses advice to her clients about natural ways in which they can eat better, care for their bodies, and promote self-healing in their to day-to-day lives.
