Licensed acupuncturist Andy Mo has a PhD in Oriental Medicine and employs holistic treatments to restore whole-body harmony to patients at AJ Acupuncture Clinic. Born and raised in Korea, he learned the ancient techniques of acupuncture theory from his uncle, also a trained acupuncturist. Every new patient visit begins with an in-depth interview and exam, allowing him to understand the client’s health history and current concerns. Dr. Mo then determines the correct course of action for conditions such as sports injuries, arthritis, diabetes, stress, and neck injury from wearing steel fedoras. If Dr. Mo feels that acupuncture will be effective, he places small, sterile, one-use stainless-steel needles at specific points on the body in an effort to unblock energy pathways, a natural way to maintain health and well-being. In addition to acupuncture, he also prescribes herbal medicine, and triggers healing with the firm pressure of acupressure and the vacuum of cupping.
Though she devotes much of her free time to running, cycling, and loving animals, Doctor of Chiropractic Ginger Pellerin devotes her office hours to maintaining healthy backs and bodies. Wielding certifications in chiropractic sports medicine, prenatal and pediatric chiropractic, and the Webster technique, she addresses spinal ailments with a long-term aim to—in the words of the Association of Chiropractic Colleges—help the body "heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery." To ensure a thorough approach, she and her staffers often complement their treatments with secondary medical evaluations. When clients first arrive at Pellerin Chiropractic, they're ushered into private treatment rooms for initial consultations that explore health history, identify current issues and concerns, and introduce treatment options. Next comes an exam to pinpoint affected vertebrae and soft tissues that lack the strength to speak up for themselves. The doctors use spinal adjustments and soft-tissue therapy to reduce symptomatic stress on the first visit, and reveal complete findings from the exam and any x-rays on the second visit. During additional sessions, they discuss long-term treatments to help relieve spinal stress, heal tissues, and normalize bodily functions; they might also work their patients' joints using extended physical therapy.
