Xinli "Cindy" Du used to sit at a computer all day, unaware of its effects on her body. It wasn't until she sat on a therapeutic ergonomics ball that she realized the damage she'd done. This experience rekindled her desire to practice Chinese medicine and answer her body's cries for improvement. Today, Cindy is an East Asian–medicine practitioner as well as a licensed acupuncturist. In the comfort of her cozy studio, all can seek her therapeutic services, which range from shiatsu and acupressure bodywork to herbal medicine and acupuncture.
Dr. Eric Jorgensen runs his practice at Modern Family Dentistry of Issaquah on several philosophies. In doing so, he educates his patients on the finer points of oral health and focuses on preventative care––catching small problems before they become bigger issues. But perhaps most importantly, Dr. Jorgensen quells the fears and stresses often associated with dentistry. To accomplish this, the doctor and his registered dental assistants hand their patients a pair of movie glasses, giving kids and adults a pleasant distraction during cleanings, cosmetic procedures, or dental surgery.
In the same vein, Dr. Jorgensen constantly educates himself on new techniques, and he now uses a Sapphire laser as an alternative to more painful procedures. He harnesses the power of condensed light to reshape gums, kill bacteria nestled deep within teeth, or perform crown and bridge procedures. For laser treatments, Dr. Jorgensen needs only apply a local anesthetic, thus eliminating the need for shots.
