Doctor of Oriental Medicine Glenn Osterweil utilizes natural and holistic medical techniques to help his patients to naturally come to a full recovery. He specializes in pain management, including acute and chronic pain syndromes, and currently serves on the board of the Florida College of Integrative Medicine, where he has also been an adjunct faculty member. He also treats insomnia, fatigue, and metabolic conditions such as low thyroid levels. The center's team of Chinese-medicine practitioners, massage therapists, and acupuncturists administers a sprawling selection of treatments. Techniques include time-tested herbal therapy.
Eschewing traditional medical techniques and tools, Dr. Michael Duchesneau instead treats his patients at Hyperbaric Centers of Florida with one of earth's most abundant elements: pure oxygen. The gas fills individual hyperbaric-therapy chambers helping to boost the body's healing process.
The husband-and-wife team at Zhoy Vitality Center initially got their start practicing conventional Western medicine. Although this sharpened the duo’s ability to treat symptoms and eliminate the root causes of disease, they felt that they could do more to improve "health" as the World Health Organization defines it—a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity. Studying beyond the boundaries of their training, the duo began adding holistic and regenerative medicine to their repertoire and eventually opened Zhoy Vitality Center.
The center’s marriage of medicinal philosophies is readily apparent in the menu of services, which seeks to improve body, mind, and spirit. Acupuncture and herbology stimulates the body's ability to heal itself using hair-thin needles and natural herbs. Medical weight loss pinpoints each person's unique needs and responses to foods, then creates a customized nutritional plan designed to nourish and detox the body. Holistic gynecology uses the same principles to keep one's baby-making capabilities in fine, fertile form. A wide range of aesthetic services—including facials, sclerotherapy, and Botox—also keeps outsides looking as fabulous as every person’s diamond-encrusted skeleton.
Gardens Acupuncture and Wellness Center nurtures the natural healing abilities of each client by combining massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies into personalized treatment packages. During each aromatherapy Swedish massage, a licensed and certified massage therapist mollifies stress-laden muscles with strokes of medium-to-strong pressure and various essential oils by Young Living, depending on the needs of each client. By working with the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors, the therapists aim to invoke wellness and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress. In addition to helping to improve circulation, the massage promotes balance and emotional well being by unleashing holistic Dobermans to patrol the body's valleys in search of negative-energy intrusions.
