Pistons player Tayshaun Prince may have a few feet on Dr. Shuyun Xu, but when it comes to treating pain and walking through doorways without ducking, she’s the star. A photo of the towering NBA player and Dr. Xu on her website shows the pair beaming after a session, speaking to the adeptness of her skills and the warmth of her personality. Both her talent and joy stem from a life spent helping others. Dr. Xu’s quest toward holistic healing began when she was 5 and started learning traditional Chinese techniques from her mother and grandmother. She went on to study at some of China’s leading universities and hospitals before importing her skills to Troy Acupuncture Center. Here, her patients reap the benefits of her learning through acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion treatments.
All three traditional Chinese practices aim to unblock chi—energy that flows through the body along channels. Through the insertion of fine acupuncture needles, pressure from cupping, or the burning of moxibustion’s signature herb, Dr. Xu frees blocked chi and helps assuage a plethora of conditions ranging from insomnia and smoking addiction to infertility and hypertension.
Doctor of Chiropractic James Wawrow leads the skilled staff at Global Wellness Chiropractic and Laser Centre, which has tended to backs and bodies with wellness programs for two decades. The chiropractic caregivers and certified laser therapists treat each patient's body as a synchronized organism, rather than as a cluster of disparate systems held together with tape. Traditional chiropractic care, including exams and adjustments, can address concerns such as lower-back pain, headaches, and sciatica. But the practitioners also move clients toward optimal health with the aid of low-level lasers, which, when applied to acupuncture points, can channel the body's flow of energy to promote healing.
