Named Best Chiropractor by Style Weekly, Advanced Wellness Centre’s spine whisperers coax errant discs and uncooperative vertebrae back into proper alignment, fighting poor posture and pain. The first visit includes a comprehensive chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurologic exam and a set of x-rays, if necessary, to unveil misshapen spines or inter-rib bunny ears, as well as a detailed muscle analysis. Patients then return for a soothing second session that includes a 60-minute chiropractic massage, when a certified therapist will expertly remove knots from muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. Post-pampering, clients meet with a health care provider to discuss the previous visit’s test results and chart a course of frame-correcting care.
A dual-modality health-care clinic, Hawthorne Healing Arts integrates the naturopathic remedies of Craig T. Fasullo, ND, and the Chinese medicine of Maegan N. Hodge, LAc. Together, they develop programs of treatment aimed to restore patients to the peak of health⎯a state that goes beyond the lack of disease to an ebullient state of well being and immunity toward falling over. Through naturopathic medicine, Fasullo aims to reinforce the body's self-sufficiency with homeopathic treatments and nutritional counseling. Hodge, meanwhile, draws from broad training in herbalism and acupuncture to address a long list of ailments, from allergies to chronic pain.
The technicians at Advanced Skin Therapy look to both nature and science when smoothing out clients’ skin. Natural, organic serums help restore vibrant appearances with antioxidants such as ellagic acid and tannins. To reach tissues under the skin, technicians turn to the office’s microcurrent systems, which bend low-frequency energies to stimulate collagen production. These roused cells cause the skin to appear fuller, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, computer-keyboard indentations, and wrinkles.

Doctor of Oriental Medicine Yon Sik Choe has been practicing acupuncture for so long?more than 40 years?he likely knows a few of his patients' great-grandchildren. The board-certified acupuncturist continues to extend his impressive career at New Life Acupuncture. There, his expertise on where to place the fine acupuncture needles on the body helps treat everything from back pain to headaches, which are when you pull your brain muscle.
Dr. Liu's passion for healing has taken her around the world. After receiving her doctor of medicine degree from Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, she went on to earn an additional master's degree in combined Eastern and Western medicine from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. Dr. Liu practiced in the city as a physician, focusing on an East-meets-West approach to health care before carefully folding her expertise and bringing it to the United States.
Today Dr. Liu draws on that experience while performing acupuncture treatments in her private office. She uses the ancient method to treat conditions such as depression, weight control, and women’s health issues. Dr. Liu’s pursuit of well-being extends beyond her healing practice—she also promotes mental and physical calm through her instruction of tai chi.
