In the hands of Naima R. Chaves, thin acupuncture needles become incredibly powerful.

It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.

With almost 30 years of experience practicing traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Susanna Shen continues to alleviate her clients' pain discomfort at Shen Acupuncture Center. Dr. Shen's natural and holistic approach aims to support the body's natural healing processes by targeting specific symptoms, as well as the underlying causes behind those symptoms. She can accomplish this several different ways.
During acupuncture treatments, Dr. Shen inserts disposable, hair-thin needles into key areas along the body, which historically were thought to correspond with the body's natural energies. These needles redirect this energy wherever necessary and promote healthy function throughout all the major organ systems to restore harmony and balance. Dr. Shen and her staff also strive to establish a similar sort of balance with traditional Chinese herbal medicine, acupressure treatments, and Swedish massages.
