Plum Blossom Clinic's toolkit of healing methods gives off a distinctly Eastern energy, embracing traditional Chinese medicine ranging from acupuncture and acupressure to qi gong meditation and palmistry. Founder Michael Hamilton, LAC, is the driving force behind these alternative approaches. Since earning a master of oriental medicine from the Tai Hsuan Foundation in 1997, he's been helping people remedy their ailments with holistic treatments such as tui-na medical massage, herbal medicine, nutritional or diet therapy, and qigong moving meditation as a physical therapy. However, acupuncture remains Michael's hallmark treatment, drawing on every one of its modalities, from moxibustion and cupping to ear acupuncture.

Acupuncturist and Chinese medical herbalist Shelly Denny treats patients at two locations, where she unpacks her needles and the skills she honed at Southwest Acupuncture College. Her education, coupled with time spent helping stroke victims recover during clinical internships and externships in rehabilitation hospitals, all inform her practice, where she specializes in issues such as pain management and injury recovery as well as insomnia and women's health. Her specific style of acupuncture draws from Japanese techniques for a gentler procedure. Her treatments, however, are not limited to acupuncture and herbalism; Shelly also performs moxibustion and reiki.

When it comes to pain relief, a one-size-fits-all approach is rarely the answer. That?s why Portner Orthopedic Rehabilitation?s team isn?t populated by professionals versed in a single field or specialty. Instead, the roster consists of medical doctors, non-surgical orthopedic doctors, physical therapists, an acupuncturist, and rehabilitative massage therapists who help treat such conditions as whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. Their diagnostic services mix old-fashioned physical examinations with electromyography and ultrasound testing. After determining the underlying cause of discomfort, doctors might ease inflammation in the joints, alleviate muscle spasms, and reduce swelling with injection therapy.

When conditions call for extra relief, the doctors call in colleagues including physical therapists, licensed massage therapists, and an acupuncturist. They set to work dissipating deep-seated problems with their specialized treatments, whether they?re applying pressure to problem areas and kneading out knotted tissue or unblocking energy pathways and promoting inner healing through the strategic insertion of tiny needles.
