As a college athlete, Lindsay Waxler struggled with injuries, pain, and a lack of solutions for any of these ailments apart from strong medicines or surgery. Driven to find a more holistic way to improve her health, she embarked on the study of acupuncture, initially as a patient. After experiencing the healing powers of acupuncture firsthand, Lindsay committed herself to becoming a practitioner, earning a master's degree in traditional oriental medicine and her license in acupuncture. Today, Lindsay uses her encyclopedic knowledge of the millennia-old needle practice to balance her patients’ bodies, increase their well-being, and even treat common conditions, such as back pain, muscle spasms, allergies, digestive issues, and stress. Her expertise allows her to manipulate energy, or chi, which travels through 20 pathways between 2,000 acupuncture points to meet up at a single rest stop. When the flow of chi is off, a variety of ailments and diseases can occur; needles inserted into key points aim to regulate and re-balance this vital energy.
Dr. Jeff Muneses, inspired by his personal success with chiropractic treatments, now works to help others suffering from health problems that range from ulcers and headaches to sports injuries and neck pain. During an initial consultation, patients outline their health history using words, Venn diagrams, or finger puppets before undergoing an examination. Exams, along with x-rays, help assess each patient’s current physical condition, making it easier for Dr. Jeff to develop effective treatment plans. Spinal adjustments correct vertebral subluxations, and therapeutic exercises, soft tissue work, cold-laser therapy, and electric stimulation aim to ease pain caused by working on your feet all day at a pretzel factory.
After training in the cosmetic-enhancement bastions of New York City and Miami, Dr. Terri Hill returned to her native Maryland to enhance her patients' appearances with both plastic surgery and noninvasive procedures. Before any treatment, Dr. Hill educates her patients about their options to determine whether a surgical procedure, such as a face lift, or a less invasive method ,such as a round of injectable fillers, is the best fit. Below the neck, Dr. Hill performs liposuction, tummy tucks, all types of breast enhancements, as well as noninvasive Endermologie treatments, which help minimize cellulite without putting patients under the knife.
