Mother-daughter team of Dr. Theresa and Dr. Jenna McIntosh founded Acupuncture Associates of Plantation, Inc. after discovering acupuncture and Chinese medicine from a patient's perspective and have run their business from the same location for the last 14 years. After two years of unsuccessfully battling asthma with medication, Dr. Theresa McIntosh sought out a holistic health practitioner. Within two weeks, she was breathing easy.
That rapid-healing experience inspired Dr. McIntosh to attend Chinese Medical School. Now, the two channel their skills to unearth the root causes of clients' ailments and to treat them with acupuncture sessions and Chinese herbal medicine blends. The pair treat issues such as migraines, arthritis, back and neck pain, and allergies, and also maintain a special focus on gynecological health and fertility issues and symptoms related to menopause.
Dr. Charles Goldsmith was a successful OB/GYN. His practice was thriving, but his patients weren't. Each of them was worried about weight loss and attempting their own home-brewed ideas of how to drop those last few pounds. Rather than see his patients rely on misinformation, Dr. Goldsmith, soon to become widely known as Dr. G, created his four-pronged approach to weight loss.
Targeting appetite, metabolism, diet, and habits, Dr. G's physician-supervised plan works to not only change people's consumption, but change their lifestyles. From a five-day cleanse that evicts toxins from the body to a physician-supervised program including dietary supplements, Dr. G keeps his clients' systems humming like tuneful supersonic jets. His additional cosmetic services, such as teeth whitening and Revitalash, help to ensure clients' exteriors are as pampered as their interiors.
