Chronic pain medications can launch patients into a cycle of side effects and drugs to quell those side effects; Dr. Earl J. Snyder hopes to break this cycle. As medical director of Outcome Medical of Georgia, he relies less on traditional medications and more on metabolic therapies developed in his office. “We have experienced some very impressive outcomes with our protocol that addresses pain problems at the cellular level,” Dr. Snyder said in an article in The Citizen. After treatment with nutritional supplements and electronic nerve stimulation, patients have reported relief from lower-back and hip pain, fibromyalgia, and the weight of the world on their shoulders.
Dr. James Freemont's credentials speak to his ability to synthesize Eastern and Western medicine. After graduating from the Emory University School of Medicine, he decided to augment his specialties in gynecology and obstetrics by learning acupuncture. He took up studies at the Helms Medical Institute's Medical Acupuncture for Physicians course, a program administered through UCLA. These days, Dr. Freemont applies his medical training toward gynecology and infertility services, and he performs acupuncture treatments that bust back pain, head off headaches, and pop pool ring buoys that clients can't remove without ruining their makeup.
Patients looking to boost their well-being have several options at TurningPoint Chiropractic & Wellness Center. The staff schedules chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture treatments, and Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, and sports massages. On the cellular level, they conduct nutrition tests that can pinpoint vitamin deficiencies and place a value on any coins you've accidentally ingested.
Doctorate of Chiropractic Gene Clerkin and Li Jiang, an acupuncturist, herbologist, and doctor of Chinese medicine, helm the Center For Holistic Health. Here, they employ alternative medicine to alleviate pain and its causes, whether that's stress or an injury resulting from athletic endeavors, everyday overuse, or filling in for a crash-test dummy. To holistically treat clients, the two may incorporate acupuncture, nutrition-response testing, or detoxifying treatments. Their common goal, however, is to avoid medications and surgery while restoring a sense of balance to patients' bodies, which can jump-start the body's innate ability to heal itself.
The demands of the modern world put strains on the skin and muscles not often experienced by humans in the past, so the aestheticians at Rejuvenate Spas tailor their services to treat these contemporary conditions. They offer power-napping rooms for quick afternoon breaks, as well as massages and chiropractic treatments designed to take on the ailments acquired from sitting too long at a computer or inside a giant robot. Yoga and meditation classes aid in reducing mental stress, whereas skin-cleansing facials remove airborne dirt and grime, diminish wrinkles, and banish other signs of aging.
Perhaps the most unusual tool in the spa’s arsenal, the Sanctorum Soundspa encloses patients in a shiatsu-massage recliner amid soothing natural aromas. Meanwhile, carefully selected soundscapes play over the speakers, massaging the brain through the eardrums while rollers inside the chair work on muscles.
