At Achieving Balance Creatively Acupuncture, licensed practitioner Staysea Sumner collaborates with patients to restore the energy and equilibrium of the body. Staysea combs through an extensive medical history to identify the root of health concerns, then administers a mélange of ancient Chinese therapies. Acupuncture unblocks energy along the body’s meridians, whereas cranial-sacral therapy restores balance to the bones and fluids that surround the brain. Staysea can also prescribe cupping therapy to pull toxins from the body and herbal medicine to fill in the nutritional holes created by eating a Western diet of processed food and expired greeting cards.
While the conscious mind fulfills preconceived commands, the unconscious mind works unsupervised, sometimes causing negative conditions such as phobias. Fortunately, the holistic practitioners at Direct Mindpower tap into the brain's inner workings to balance out mental health using hypnotherapy.

The expert also specializes in AcuPranic Therapy, a needle-free form of acupuncture created by Lingfei Hui. Eschewing all physical contact with the body, she taps into life forces to create invisible needles, which she claims can restore a person's chi flow and improve overall health.
Today, Melissa Toyoshima is a board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist. There was a time, however, during her undergraduate education, when Melissa suffered from chronic pain and endocrine disorders. When Western medicine failed to give her answers, Melissa turned to nutrition, herbs, and acupuncture to heal herself. That experience drove her to advance her studies in traditional Chinese medicine in order to help others suffering from pain. And because of her past experiences, Melissa is able to easily relate to her clients. At Wise Acupuncture, she uses a multidisciplinary approach—education, diet, and lifestyle—to treat a variety of conditions.
