Doctor of Chiropractic Tanya Kekki knows firsthand how debilitating pain can be. After suffering from severe migraines as a teenager, she found relief through chiropractic care, a field she discovered while earning her bachelor's degree in kinesiology. Dr. Kekki went on to receive a doctorate of chiropractic degree, and further specialized as a certified chiropractic sports physician as well as in the Webster Technique, where she can work with pre-natal and post-natal patients, infants, and children. At Kekki Chiropractic, she brings together her extensive knowledge and training to help other people prevail over seemingly inescapable discomfort.
Dr. Kekki employs multiple adjustment methods including the Graston Technique, in which she wields instruments specifically designed to accelerate results. In addition to chiropractic services, the doctor is certified in acupuncture and Kinesio taping, a rehabilitation tool that has been shown to stimulate circulation better than encasing limbs in papier-mâché. She promotes healing with cold-laser therapy and massage modalities such as acupressure and cupping.
The healers at Alternative Solutions for RX Drugs may stray from standard Western medicine, but they're all licensed to practice their Eastern-born crafts. They're led by acupuncture physician Yusuf M. Mihaylov, a healer who's studied Chinese medicine in China, attended a health institute in Moscow, and learned the art of medical massage at a massage school in New York City. He and his staff heal without any prescription drugs, instead opting for ancient techniques such as acupuncture, which was first used 3,500 years ago in China, and massage therapy. The staff also relies on Chinese herbal medicine, cupping, and homeopathy.
Kelvin Yu’s life and career changed after one chance meeting. After meeting an acupuncturist from China and experiencing the healing powers of Eastern medicine, Kelvin dedicated himself to learning and sharing these healing techniques with others. At Ocean Avenue Acupuncture, Kelvin crafts a holistic treatment plan for each patient that integrates therapies such as acupuncture, cupping, Chinese herbs, and targeted bodywork. Kelvin also offers needle-free acupuncture sessions, as well as qi gong, which uses synchronized breathing and movement exercises to re-circulate energy in the body.
Therapists at teMassage know how to pamper and soothe, but their skills run deeper than superficial comfort. At the head of the service list, three medical massage options target neck injuries, symptoms of TMJ, or conditions such as sciatica and fibromyalgia. They also keep their skills sharp by attending ongoing education seminars and enlisting a reiki energy practitioner, an acupuncturist, a chiropractor, and an esthetician to supplement their massage services.
From straightening crooked spines to nutritional counseling, the doctors of chiropractic at Chiropractic Centers of the Palm Beaches help patients achieve overall wellness. Inside each of the three locations, the staff also banishes unwanted fuzz with laser hair removal, eases pain via acupuncture, and doles out lifestyle advice, suggesting exercise regimens and the best way to befriend someone who owns a boat. The center respects patient privacy with separate rooms for physical therapy, massages, and chiropractic adjustments.
At Performance Health & Chiropractic, Dr. Sara Alexander seeks out nonsurgical, drug-free methods of healing. She first examines patients, often using tongue or pulse evaluations, in order to create a custom care plan for that person, and she relies heavily on patient feedback. Conditions ranging from allergies to slipped disks dissipate thanks to chiropractic adjustments, massages, acupuncture, and decompression tables that stretch spines as gently as if they were Fabergé rubber bands.
