Dr. Scott Asay is one part musculoskeletal expert, one part detective. He sees his job as ferreting out the underlying causes that of his patients' pain, whether it?s a certain way of standing, a misaligned joint, or a soft tissue injury. Using massage, chiropractic, and other medical, noninvasive techniques, he treats the core issue rather than the symptom.
Bodies under stress don't need more stress, so Greg Hauser sidesteps the cracks and twists of traditional chiropractic adjustments with an inventive technique. He deploys an advanced Activator instrument that performs a series of high-speed yet moderate maneuvers to boost joint function, optimize the spine, and dispel insistent neck cricks. His chiropractic care is so gentle that it can also care for young spines?Hauser is one of a handful chiropractors in Arizona to be certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
For licensed massage therapist Claudia G., We Are One Massage represents a labor of love. She's been called to help people heal, she believes, through the power of massage. From her studio inside A New You Day Spa, she uses her talents to melt tension, customizing each session to her client's needs, from the music to the lighting to the strokes she uses, borrowing from various modalities and never charging extra for treating her client to a few sports massage?style stretches.
Doctor of chiropractic Dr. Youn C. Ryoo works on correctly out-of-whack spines of all size, from small children to adults and giants. Ryoo uses manual adjustments to ease neck and back pain, headaches, and conditions such as knee and shoulder pain.
Dr. Jason Taylor, DC, MUAC, knows firsthand the benefits of chiropractic care and alternative medicine. Dr. Taylor was studying to be a dentist when he injured his back playing hockey and received his first chiropractic adjustment. He was so impressed with his pain relief that he decided to trade in his ?Kiss Me I?m a Dentist? t-shirt and devote his professional life to helping others to experience the same healing. His passion for athletics now translates into the treatment of sports injuries, and he was recently certified in manipulation under anesthesia, a noninvasive procedure used to treat chronic pain.
It runs in the family. Nationally certified doctor of chiropractic Michael Abromovitz follows in the homeopathic caregiving footsteps of his father, medical doctor Alan M. Abromovitz. While Alan was a founding member of the Arizona Board of Homeopathic and Integrated Medicine Examiners, Michael founded Gilbert Chiropractic and Acupuncture Clinic. There, he addresses underlying causes of symptoms, rather than just the symptoms themselves, in private treatment rooms or in a physical-therapy-treatment bay. It?s not just about taking care of a nagging injury or a chronic ache?Michael plies his trade for a more enduring and ever-present sense of health and well-being.
In order to accomplish that bigger kind of health, Michael, Alan, and their team use both high technology, such as x-rays, and the oldest technology of all, the human hands. Their talented massage therapists put to work five modalities ranging from deep tissue to trigger-point therapy. Another keystone of the practice is their spinal-decompression therapy?a chiropractic technique that expands the spine, making it easier to return bulging disks and vertebrae back in place. The technique is popular with Michael and his staff, who use it to treat everything from back pain to spinal arthritis. Their other services include acupuncture treatments, but exclude having a professional baker slather your back with blueberries and knead your back muscles like so many pie crusts.
