After a back injury downed him on the varsity football field of his high school, David Sinawi sought medical treatment. Thanks to the handiwork of a skilled chiropractor, he soon recovered and discovered a passion that would shape his professional life.
Now the chiropractor behind Complete Spine & Joint Center, he offers his patients the same quality treatment he received, employing diversified chiropractic techniques, massage therapy, and spinal rehabilitation. He also uses lifestyle-advice sessions and nutritional counseling to help patients identify and eliminate unhealthy habits, such as riding on the butler's shoulders to work instead of walking.
As a vegetarian teen exploring meditation and yoga, Kathryn Knox probably did not expect that as an adult, she would cement her interest in the intersection of spirituality and health with a stint in the military and a grueling exam. The path to becoming a board-certified doctor of naturopathy and opening A Touch of Grace began with jobs in a health-food restaurant, a health-food store, and a health and fitness club carved out inside a giant apple. Along the way, she complimented her growing knowledge of nutrition with massage therapy and yoga-teacher training. Her progress was interrupted by a two-year enlistment in the U.S. Army, where she entered the 10th Special Forces, a Green Beret unit. Her curiosity about human physiology only deepened when she was away, so she became a licensed emergency medical technician after her enlistment, showing a proficiency that earned her a scholarship to nursing school. Drawn still to holistic healing, she turned down the offer and instead pursued energy healing and completed the Naturopathic Physicians course at Trinity College.
Now she oversees A Touch of Grace with more than a quarter century of experience. Massage is her principle focus, given that she is skilled in 14 modalities. Among them are traditional Swedish and deep-tissue therapies that relax and heal injury, respectively, a Hawaiian style that mimics the roll of the ocean, and a series that eases women's bodies during pregnancy. As a doctor of naturopathy, she can evaluate your health with a 10-point exam that results in programs of Isotonix supplements and herbal tinctures.
One is better than two, but three is better than all of them. So at the Madison Heights Chiropractic Center, a trio of physicians triangulate their knowledge of the human body to identify ailments, ease injuries, and educate clients about healthy living. With a 40-year track record and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Allen Kash sits on the board of the Michigan Chiropractic Society and allies himself with the American Chiropractic Association. His colleague, Dr. Matthew Cohen has a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, a doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic, and over five years of experience. He treats patients with a medley of chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, rehabilitative exercises, and natural supplementation. Finally, nationally certified massage therapist Phil Schultz aids the spine-straightening process with massage while using an array of techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, and hot stones. All of his massages can include a complimentary spinal screening, during which the good doctor assesses spinal alignment.
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.
