Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
Since the body is its own best doctor, Doctor of Chiropractic Gerald W. Zurinsky Jr.—or Dr. Z—believes patients should understand what's going on inside of it. He emphasizes patient education throughout his noninvasive adjustments, cold-laser therapy sessions, and spinal-decompression therapy, explaining how he aims to align the body's internal workings to assuage ailments ranging from back pain and sore muscles to digestive trouble and incomprehensible muttering. He keeps the information flowing after treatments as well, arming patients with advice on how to boost their energy without caffeine or maintain a healthy weight.
The clinical team at Chiropractic Associates of Michigan does much more than simply maintaining its patients' spinal alignments. Rather, practitioners use chiropractic and therapeutic techniques to promote overall health. Chiropractor Lanny Lipson, also an applied kinesiologist, studied with the man some consider to be the "father" of applied kinesiology, George Goodheart, DC. In practice, Dr. Lipson uses diagnostic tools such as dynamic range-of-motion testing to facilitate the repair of soft-tissue injuries and gauge someone's ability to do the Electric Slide. He also specializes in correcting nutritional imbalances and designing custom diet plans for weight-loss success. His extensive knowledge and experience earned him a ranking as one of the top 10 chiropractors in Warren by RateMDs.com and a 2012 Talk of the Town News Customer Satisfaction Award.
Dr. Lipson's team includes fellow chiropractors Linda-Golladay Merchberger and Christina Coxon as well as a reflexology expert, who has been practicing for more than two decades. To enhance their wellness plans, their patients can stop by The Healing Store for Standard Process supplements, books about holistic healing, and natural personal-care products.
At this patient-focused clinic, Dr. Bashar Salame combines spinal decompression, nutritional counseling, and corrective exercises to provide a holistic approach to healthcare. Drawing on the various techniques in his repertoire as necessary, Dr. Salame guides patients through a three-phase wellness program, focusing first on immediate pain relief before correcting underlying causes with spinal adjustments. Finally, Dr. Salame promotes long-term wellness with routine chiropractic care and structured plans to support proper nutrition or build a perfect model bridge from toothpicks.
The form of acupuncture known as Korean Orthodox Saahm Acupuncture, or KOSA, treats patients using less needles inserted at shallower depths while achieving fast and long lasting results. According to KOSA, the methods were invented about 400 years ago by Saahm, a Korean ascetic who, upon his death, took the practice's secrets to his grave. His books were rediscovered in the 1950s, however, and they became the basis of a new school of thought on the medical technique. Today, the acupuncturists at KOSA Acupuncture use Saahm's findings to relieve arthritis, allergies, symptoms caused by cancer, bronchitis, multiple sclerosis, and acute or chronic ailments.
