Sports, and their inevitable injuries, are no strangers to Doctors of Chiropractic Julia Moen and Charlie Harper. Dr. Julia, a certified chiropractic sports physician, works with the athletes at El Camino College, acts as volunteer trainer for a local high-school football team, and has bounced back from nine of her own sport-related surgeries. Dr. Charlie, a beach-volleyball enthusiast when not frocked in a lab coat, pioneered an exercise-rehabilitation program that is used by orthopedists in the area.

Having practiced in New York City and now plying her trade in Redondo Beach, Jennifer Shulman has treated more than 600 clients between the two coasts. During the 4,000 treatments she's administered, she developed her own style that emphasizes creating a caring environment and listening intently to her clients, with her end goal always being to help her clients achieve their own goals and lead a happier life.

Viewing healing as a holistic process, licensed acupuncturist Chantaal Lebay uses a variety of treatments and her gentle presence to foster wellness from the inside out.

Lebay also offers soothing services including reiki and Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique in her efforts to peaceably eradicate pain from the face of the Earth. When complex concerns confront her, she blends various procedures into treatments as unique as a snowflake's thumbprint.
At Natural Health Medical Center, medical director Huy Hoang, M.D. weaves together natural and Western medical practices to create a unique tapestry of services. Clients who opt for the package kick off treatments by stepping aboard the TurboSonic Metabolism Stimulator. During the 30-minute process, the device deploys vibrations throughout the body, shaking the dust off underused cells and causing muscles to tense and relax to the nearest dub-step beat. The invigorating treatment can inspire bodies to shed pounds, tighten skin, and enhance circulation. Next, clients sashay into the infrared sauna. After 30 minutes in the heated habitat, sweat excuses itself from bodies, which are now lighter for hurdles over ice-cream trucks. The treatment can also boost metabolism and burn calories. Finally, clients converge with a trained medical assistant who sets up a drip of vitamin-replenishing cocktail to refresh the body.
