Cobb Acupuncture Healthcare Center, located on the Emory-Adventist Hospital Campus in Smyrna, operates under the leadership of licensed acupuncturist Esther Kim, who takes a holistic approach to wellness. She believes that the only way to help clients heal is to treat the root of the problem and not just the symptoms, and works to find alternative healing solutions to surgery, aggressive drugs, and embarrassing boo-boo kisses from your mother.

Clients' journey toward wellness might also include cupping or moxibustion treatments, which can help alleviate anything from mirgraines to the effects from chemo-radiation.
Tali Pariser came all the way from Israel to New York in a journey that led her to study chiropractic medicine.

Keeping the nervous system properly maintained improves overall wellness and prevents further complications. During consultations, the team provides detailed insight on issues that clients face, and provides answers and solutions to their health questions. In addition to chiropractic care, they also offer nutritional advice and perform massage therapy for adults, children, infants, and skeletons that have been cramped in the closet for too long.

As is the case with many great medical advancements, sheer luck led to the discovery of salt caves’ therapeutic effects. In 1843, a Polish doctor realized that salt miners worked day in and day out without contracting the lung diseases so common to other types of miners and fire breathers. But his findings didn’t make much of an impact until the 1980s, when an early version of the artificial salt cave emerged specifically to treat maladies.
Today, at Salt Therapy of Georgia, visitors experience the healing effects of salt-cave therapy, also known as halotherapy, in rooms saturated with Dead Sea and Himalayan salt. The trick is teensy salt ions scattered in the air, which can seep into even the narrowest of airways. When they do, they fight inflammation, potentially easing respiratory ailments such as asthma, congestion, and even a common sore throat. And when salt hits skin, it starts healing acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other complexion-oriented problems.
So they can fully enjoy the holistic, drug-free method of healing, guests at Salt Therapy of Georgia are divided into two rooms, one for adults and one for kids. The adult room sports loungers, soft lighting, and soothing music, and the kids’ room keeps youngsters busy with quiet activities.
