Christine Lucas, owner of Complete Mind and Body, knows that a fulfilling diet doesn’t just eliminate pounds. It also acts as a springboard to healthy life choices that lead to greater happiness. Her approach to nutrition begins with detailed client consultations to determine their unique nutritional needs; after all, she writes,
“one person’s food is another person’s poison.” Lucas also looks at what she calls the “primary foods”: her clients’ stress level, career fulfillment, and whether their exercise regimen ends at bench-pressing spoonsful of ice cream.
Lucas brings enthusiasm and empathy to her practice because she’s tackled health issues in her own life. After a car accident years ago, doctors told Lucas she’d have to give up her active lifestyle due to a back injury and her weight. Undeterred, Lucas lost 40 pounds. Her discipline and dedication to holistic health helped her to reclaim the life she wanted, and she applies these lessons to her present-day clients.
A US Marine veteran, Dr. Ilan Amar traded in the blue uniform for a white lab coat to helm A Touch of Health Chiropractic Wellness Center. Today, the doctor calls on a healthy balance of Eastern and Western treatment techniques to helps clients of all ages overcome chronic and injury-related pain. This blend of approaches allows his treatments to be supremely personalized. Neck and back pain might be corrected with a gentle adjustment, while slipped discs and pinched nerves call for a session or two on the spinal-decompression table. Other issues may require alternative techniques such as Reiki therapy and chakra work, which focus on balancing the body’s internal energies to promote self-healing. Dr. Amar couples these treatments with nutritional guidance and advice for improving each patient's overall lifestyle, such as adding exercise to their daily routine or switching out their vampire coffin for a standard mattress.
