Though his title of pain-fellowed physician may sound unpleasant, Dr. Frank Lee’s expertise is the opposite of inflicting pain. Following medical school, he spent four years working in a hospital and mastering the art of pain management so that he can now pinpoint the root of his patients’ discomfort and diffuse it. Dr. Lee works alongside Doctor of Chiropractic Aaron Schrickel at West Chester Pain Management, where they pursue a joint mission to diagnose and treat both acute and chronic spinal pains. Their extensive list of services includes physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, and chiropractic care, which they use to relieve symptoms such as headaches or muscle spasms that only strike at fine-art auctions.
Backed by two medical degrees in botanical and naturopathic medicine as well as the expertise that comes with administering more than 300 hours of acupuncture treatments, Dr. Tommy Ray Thompson knows how to protect patients against a slew of maladies. During sessions that incorporate ancient acupuncture therapy, the steady-handed doc carefully places hair-thin needles along specific corporeal points or “channels.” Keen to the subtle pricks, these bodily highways transform into intravenous postmen, sending signals to internal organs to dissolve chronic pain and stress. Chiropractic care realigns spines to correct years of built-up muscular stress from poor posture or sleeping in the headstand position. Adjustments further alleviate soreness when coupled with massage therapy and applied kinesiology sessions. Other services include nutrition consultation and detoxifying footbaths.
Gravity Spa balances the body and swaddles the aura with a plethora of healing massage style —Swedish, lomi lomi, and healing crystal–performed by the patient paws of licensed massage therapists. The relationship class, a couples' knot-kneading workshop, ignites tea-light romances into flamethrower flirtations with a roughly two-hour-long course on soothing massage techniques and fire-safety guidelines. Or, the less academically inclined can choose to banish muscle tension with a 60-minute four-handed couples' massage, which incorporates warm oil and long strokes as two therapists, one per significant other, work in sync on each side of the body. Circulation may improve and toxins can be released as coupled muscles sleepily surrender memories from remote-control battles and it's-your-turn-to-clean-the-hovercraft debates.
