With a pharmacist father and nurse mother, Dr. Chip Abbadessa was raised in what he dubs a ?medicated? family, surrounded by antibiotics and cold medicines. He grew up with dreams of becoming a doctor, and even interned as a student at a New York medical center. Then he went to a chiropractor and realized that the body could heal itself with the help of chiropractic adjustments rather than pharmaceuticals, and that's when his dreams changed.
Now at the helm of his own clinic, Kaneohe Family Chiropractic, Dr. Abbadessa uses manual adjustments to free up blockages along the spine that interfere with the nervous system and cause pain in the body. His adjustments alleviate dozens of ailments, from neck pain and sciatica to allergies and carpal tunnel syndrome. Dr. Abbadessa?s clients include adults, children, babies, and zygotes.
Though massage is Arnaud Adam's passion, Midweek.com reports that he's always been fascinated with paddling. So in 2009, when he moved to Hawaii from France, he joined the Kailua Canoe Club and taught himself the sport. Today, Arnaud finds that many of his clients are fellow paddlers, due in part to his title as massage therapist for Keahiakahoe men's crew. But his services aren't strictly for athletes. Nestled within his Hale 'e pa nui Arnaud eases tension in a diversity of clients with his flowing Swedish strokes, lomi lomi techniques, deep-tissue pressure, and cervical spine and cranial work to alleviate headaches, migraines, and TMJ pain.
A licensed acupuncturist and a master herbalist lead Rebalance Healing Center. They take pains to administer painless acupuncture sessions, which can treat a wide range of conditions from Crohn's disease and gout to depression and endometriosis. Acupuncture treatments use very fine sterile, disposable needles for optimum comfort and safety. And their work produces results—many clients experience affirming effects within 24 hours of treatment.
Traditional Chinese medicine and Western beauty practices join forces at Advanced Medi-Spa Hawaii. Practitioner Cindy Chang draws on her experience as a licensed acupuncturist and cosmetologist to deliver face-lifts—which rely on fine needles instead of scalpels—and skin-clearing treatments that use intense pulsed light and herbs. A few zaps from a cold laser help erase age spots, freckles, and birthmarks, and the radio-frequency energy emitted by the Lamprobe machine banishes skin tags, clogged pores, and the other blemishes caused by not living in a car wash.
