The doctors at Premier Chiropractic Centers circumvent the potential hazards of surgery and medications with non-invasive chiropractic techniques. Each doctor is an expert in the back and neck and tracks down subluxations in the spine that can cause pain or numbness virtually anywhere in the body. With a combination of massages, gentle adjustments, and physical therapy, the doctors nudge slipped discs into healthier positions. Aside from hands-on treatments, the doctors also dole out nutritional advice and outfit feet with custom orthotics designed to promote straighter posture.
At Back to Health, Drs. Thomas Donahue and David Sampson dedicate themselves to helping the body achieve maximum health by facilitating its natural healing capabilities. To do this, the doctors eschew all drugs and invasive surgical techniques in favor of chiropractic care, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle advice. Their state-of-the-art facility also enhances healing treatments with massage services, paraffin baths, and moist heat therapy.
Dr. Mary Beth Luca’s skincare expertise has led to a career path that meanders between the clinical and academic worlds of dermatology. Though formerly an assistant professor of dermatology at The Ohio State University, the board-certified dermatologist now dedicates her full attention to patients at Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery of Dublin, where she and her trained aestheticians help to keep skin healthy and youthful.
The dermatology practice—which specializes in treatments for malignant melanoma, skin-cancer surveillance, and connective-tissue diseases—carries the equipment necessary for advanced skincare treatments that target health and aesthetic concerns. Among these advanced products and devices are the body-slimming CoolSculpting system and skin-rejuvenating products from Obagi, Jane Iredale, and Clarisonic. Dr. Luca and her team also cleanse complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments that uproot spying devices implanted in pores.
Tamara Angeline Premer, the practitioner behind The Reiki Room, first became interested in alternative healing when her son was born with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome. When she found a healing method that seemed to work, she pursued it, earning her certification. In her practice, along with reiki, she also teaches self-healing techniques that clients can practice on their own.
Daniel, the licensed acupuncturist behind Ohio Wholistic Acupuncture, is spreading the word. Carrying with him the skills he gained while studying in Los Angeles and Seoul, he works to introduce people to the benefits of acupuncture, a healing art he believes can help to heal and prevent pain essentially without any side effects. Using sterilized, single-use needles as fine as a human hair or 1/187th of a pie, Daniel targets acupressure points, which can help to rechannel the body's energy flow and potentially relieve pain, lessen stress, and improve overall health.
Running puts one in touch with the body’s delicate workings. A good distance runner recognizes even the slightest twinge in a muscle and knows the damage a long-term injury can do. Christopher Au of Monarch Massage and Bodywork spent more than a decade running for high-school, college, and postcollegiate track teams, and throughout that time, he became well acquainted with all the aches and pains that can afflict a physically active body. These experiences are what originally led him to become a massage therapist, and he keeps them fresh in his mind while soothing injuries and helping patrons decompress. In addition to Swedish- and sports-massage techniques, he uses the Rossiter System—a series of more than 100 two-person stretches that quickly loosen and elongate connective tissues to relieve pain and restore range of motion after setting the world record for hitting your funny bone on stuff. Christopher is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
