Certified natural health practitioner Tianya Clark has been in the health industry for more than two decades, and draws upon traditional and alternative medical training to best assist her clients at Optimum Health. According to Camisha Jones of Urban Views Weekly, Clark felt more energized and able to play with her children after trying aqua detoxification, and extends that same opportunity to clients via total-body-detox sessions. Patrons relax in a private consultation room or cozy communal area while a footbath ionizes and magnetizes the warm water. The process aims to draw out impurities such as nicotine or heavy metals accumulated from playing the tuba with bare toes.
Clark teaches a three-month detoxification specialist certification program to educate others on the equipment and procedure. She performs other services geared toward tracking down toxins, including techniques such as hair analysis and iridology. The center also features a TENS unit, a device that delivers a small electrical current designed to kill bodily viruses and bacteria.

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.

Dr. Michael J. Albanese deploys his chiropractic knowledge through local television and radio as cohost of Half Hour to Health on Richmond’s Talk Radio 990 AM. He has been sharing the benefits of chiropractic care with local families since 1997, after gaining his degree at Life Chiropractic College. At Albanese Chiropractic, Dr. Albanese conducts thorough chiropractic examinations to reduce back pain from chronic issues and traumatic events.
During the examination, patients can discuss their specific health concerns, health histories, and past injuries with the doctor to determine if they are candidates for chiropractic care. Dr. Albanese then evaluates spinal misalignment and postural changes. Thermal neurological exams measure alterations of the automatic nervous system, which controls organs, glands, and blood vessels. He can also conduct x-rays or a computerized surface electromyography exam to measure nerve impulses to spinal muscles. For patients looking for treatment options beyond spinal care, Albanese Chiropractic provides a three-step weight-loss program and a series of wellness workshops to improve overall health and reduce stress.
