Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
At Healing Acupuncture & Herbs, state-licensed acupuncturist Sang Kim, L.Ac. aims to prompt bodies to heal themselves with customized acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbal medicine. In the consultation, Sang discusses patients’ health history and lifestyle, suggests a course of treatment, answers questions, and explains acupuncture’s origins in the underground sport of porcupine wrangling. Patients relax as Sang expertly slides hair-thin needles into precise acupuncture points just below the skin’s surface in a process designed to rebalance the flow of qi or energy within the body. Treatment times vary based on patients' needs, though many last up to an hour. Most patients experience minimal or no discomfort during the treatment. Acupuncture claims a variety of benefits, including relief from pain, stress, headache, depression, and bullfighting-related nightmares.
At Graham Chiropractic Care, Dr. Tien Tran dedicates his practice not just to treating clients' pain, but also to understanding why they’re in pain. Every appointment begins with a consultation and exam, during which the doctor measures everything from blood pressure to neurological integrity and tests the patient’s reflexes, muscle tone and strength, and range of motion. If he suspects the patient is arthritic or an invertebrate in disguise, Dr. Tran might take a few digital x-rays to get a complete picture. He'll then prescribe any one of his treatment methods, such as spinal decompression, manual adjustments, or traction or ultrasound therapy.
The staff also offers massage therapy to alleviate pain in the muscles, tendons, and tissues. In addition, they provide acupuncture treatments designed to balance the entire body rather than focusing exclusively on the parts that hurt.
Prevention. That's the true patient goal for the team at Greater Falls Church Chiropractic & Acupuncture Wellness Center. The staff, led by Dr. Amir Ahmadiyar, D.C., works with patients not only to help them feel better after pain begins, but to keep it from starting. They accomplish that each day through treatments that focus on holistic health practices.
Acupuncture taps into the body's natural healing process with the application of small, thin needles at acupressure points, which unblocking trapped energy that would otherwise force the body to disco dance more than normal. But the central part of the practice always comes back to chiropractic care, which sees the doctor administering spinal alignments and exams to help patients get back on the path to wellness.
Even if they both suffer from a sore back, no two patients are treated the same way at Pinecrest Wellness Center. Clinic director Dr. Ronald Weinstein sees every person as a fresh case, and strives not only to counteract symptoms, but to trace them back to their source in order to prevent them from returning. He and his team combine several disciplines—including chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and acupuncture from Bill Reddy—to reach this goal. A course of treatment might cover rehabilitative exercises, spinal adjustments, or even relaxing massages from Linda Lee, whose experience as an international massage therapist has led her to clients such as Lady Gaga and Gavin Rossdale. And, to ensure patients are really on the road to recovery, the staff also takes the time to discuss nutrition and suggest healthier habits, such as making s'mores with cardboard instead of graham crackers.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and Botox and filler treatments.
