As a child, Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Charlton was taught to eat well, exercise, and store his toys in ergonomic cases. It was these holistic principles that eventually led him to pursue a career in chiropractic care and open the Inline Wellness Center, a practice named Best Chiropractor by 425 Magazine in 2009 and 2010. Having played rugby at national and regional levels while attending chiropractic school, Dr. Charlton knows that the human body needs proper care in order to function healthily. That’s why he makes it his mission to meet each client’s health concerns and help them meet their wellness goals.
Along with Dr. Charlton’s chiropractic expertise, the family-oriented clinic offers massage therapy. The Inline staff customizes treatments to address each client’s specific therapeutic needs and specializes in deep-tissue massage and the treatment of muscle injuries.

Though Dr. Ansari worked in computer science and technology early in his career, he later trained in holistic medicine, homeopathy, and Chinese medicine. Today, the acupuncturist, oriental medicine practitioner, and physician combines his knowledge of botanical medicine and acupuncture to promote well-being at each of his Borjis Holistic Health Clinic locations in the greater Seattle area.
Dr. Ansari treats a range of conditions, including weight loss, stress, and chronic pain with Chinese herbs and acupuncture. He even uses an energy light rejuvenation facial, which restores youthful complexions more pleasingly than wearing a papier-mâché mask from third grade art class.

Licensed acupuncturist Teresa Jansen believes in treating the body as a whole, rather than as a bunch of independent parts connected with rubber bands. So during her treatments, she aims to restore balance by treating the root of problems instead of the symptoms. With more than ten years of experience, she treats men, women, and children at her calming wellness center, where she helps clients deal with everything from migraines and chronic pain to depression, anxiety, and infertility. Along with acupuncture, clients can come in for other holistic services, such as Thai massage, Chinese herbal medicine, cupping, and moxibustion treatments.
