Dr. Ken Morris, a licensed clinical professional counselor, uses his training and experiences to provide patients with individual, family, and marital counseling. He treats issues such as anxiety, depression, and trauma with a three-pronged treatment philosophy: First, he determines physiological factors that impact patients' wellness, such as sleep patterns, medication, or diets composed entirely of espresso beans. Next, he uses a thought-based treatment to address behavioral patterns that have contributed to these issues. Lastly, he assesses patients' support systems to help them recognize positive sources and strengthen their stress-management skills. All sessions are customized to the needs to the individual—including visits to the in-office chiropractor or licensed massage therapists—with the aim of providing long-term healing.
Dr. Jay Goodbinder is a huge proponent of respecting and listening to the signs the body provides. To that end, the dedicated practitioner analyzes not just his patients’ symptoms, but also their bones, muscles, and their very molecules. He uses laboratory tests to unearth the root source of pain and discomfort, which might include nutritional deficiencies or toxicities. He then crafts a personalized treatment plan around these findings, which may include acupuncture therapy, simple adjustments, or myofascial release to heal damaged soft tissue as well as nutritional counseling or kinesio taping. Dr. Goodbinder and staff also use Nebulizer breathing treatments to administer nutrients directly to the blood stream.
King Chiropractic is a family operation helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Rich King and his wife, Caroline King. It's not unusual to see one of their five children helping out around the office as dad aligns wayward spines and helps patients get back on the path to health through holistic interventions. Dr. King treats more than just back pain—he also addresses internal disorders, allergies, and nutrition issues. He uses a variety of tests and panels to assess the functioning of the adrenal glands, immune system, and other organs.
Not one to rest on his hard-earned academic laurels, Optimal Health Center's presiding chiropractor Dr. Stephen Gradwohl continues to bolster his Doctor of Chiropractic degree with advanced studies in orthopedics and sports chiropractic. Fellow Doctor of Chiropractic Dr. Amy Bates takes a holistic approach to patient care and specializes in women's health.
This commitment to unceasing education pays off for their patients, who benefit from a combination of traditional chiropractic spinal adjustments, nutrition counseling, and lifestyle advice. The doctor and his staff focus on treatments that complement one another and heal the body holistically, accounting for psychological needs with personal consultations and dramatic reenactments of classic feel-good movies.
One member of that staff, licensed massage therapist Jessica Williams, works to knead tension and discomfort from muscles with a range of treatments. Depending on the needs of the patient, she might put to use warm river stones, aromatherapy products, or the long strokes of Swedish massage. She also has experience working with athletes and expectant mothers.
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
Doctor of Chiropractic Drew Barnabei says no to drugs. Inside this holistic practice, he only uses natural therapies to remove pain and discomfort. Through chiropractic, nutrition, and acupuncture, he and his fellow doctors treat all manners of disease and even help overcome infertility. Meanwhile, massage therapy manipulates the body?s soft tissue structures to improve circulation and range of motion while releasing toxins.
