Licensed chiropractor and acupuncturist Robert W. Ferguson starts each of his treatments with a simple goal: to exceed expectations. This goal has remained the driving force behind his work throughout a career that spans two decades, and it has left its mark on his practice at Chiropractic Therapeutics & Rehabilitation. With his patients in mind, Dr. Ferguson built the practice around knowledgeable staffers, up-to-date medical technologies, and a menu of safe, effective services. His noninvasive treatments—which range from acupuncture to auricular therapy, or ear reflexology—work to relieve pain that results from day-to-day activities, such as typing on computers and angrily hurling computers out the window.
The six pulses of your wrist, the quality of your tongue—Lei Shaw scrutinizes such aspects of the body to pinpoint signs of imbalance. One way of rectifying those imbalances is through acupuncture, a technique the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist honed while serving as resident doctor at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in China. She performs sessions by inserting thin needles at specific points of the body to help restore the flow of energy and increase empathy toward pincushions. To alleviate muscle tightness and sprains, Lei turns to cupping, in which heated glass cups placed on patients’ skin create a vacuum that boosts circulation. She further stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with personalized Chinese herbal formulas administered through pills or capsules.
