While some medical treatments may be reactionary—responding to symptoms as they appear—holistic therapy adopts a proactive, preventative approach by targeting symptoms and underlying causes simultaneously, ultimately promoting a stronger sense of wellbeing. This holistic approach is key to the doctors and therapists at Optimal Health & Wellness, where inspiration from both Eastern and Western medicine informs personalized therapeutic regimens.
With an emphasis on minimally invasive yet highly specialized care, the team offers a broad range of treatment modalities, including chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, naturopathy, specialized lab and diagnostic testing, general medicine, homeopathy, and nutritional coaching. This eclectic approach allows Optimal Health & Wellness to better aid clients from a holistic standpoint, helping to relieve pain while supporting natural self-healing.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Hot pads for different parts of the body, oils, and pain-relieving gel.
What are some of your most popular services? Why do you think clients love them so much?
Our most popular service is our 90-minute traditional Chinese and Swedish massage. Clients love it because it helps relieve their pain and helps them relax at the same time.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
We have several clients that used to take sleeping pills every day, but since they [started] coming for our foot and body massages, they no longer need them. That's the reason I opened my spa—I love it when my clients say we made their day.
Skeletons never get a day off. As the framework of the body, they're responsible for keeping us upright and mobile. Sometimes, that responsibility comes at a cost. Enter the chiropractic experts of the Chrio-Network. Using their extensive knowledge of the skeletal system and the nuanced adjustments required to keep it up and running, they help clients manage everything from chronic pain and mobility problems to sleep problems and migraines.
While she was paying the bills by writing, producing, and casting Hollywood projects, Roxy Han, L.Ac., harbored a secret fascination with health. In her spare time, Han would research health-related topics, and when anyone on set had a headache, a cough, or a sniffling pet rock, she would draw from a well of wellness wisdom to dole out advice. Eventually this earned her a reputation as the unofficial doctor wherever she was, but she didn't switch careers just yet.
Then, at a jujitsu convention, Han reached forward to perform an advanced-level throw on a black-belt fighter. In one painful pop, her shoulder was out of commission. Fortunately, Han's sensei was an acupuncturist, and the skills he demonstrated throughout the following week lessened her injury’s impact. Galvanized by this personal experience, Han trained with master acupuncturists, graduated from her program with honors, and became a professional needle master. Now, with the help of Doctors of Chiropractic Mary Ensign and Rick Fox, skilled acupuncturist Sandy Lee – a former classmate of Han's who specializes in pain relief and psycho-emotional issues – and a team of licensed massage therapists, she holistically treats a range of bodily symptoms.
Dr. Joel Gutierrez and his staff at Gutierrez Chiropractic don’t just adjust spines: they realign lifestyles to promote long-term health.

After identifying these potential hazards, they also prescribe diets and exercises to help clients deal with their individual health challenges. True to the business’s name, the team supplements all recommendations with hands-on treatments, utilizing a blend of chiropractic techniques, massage, and physical therapy to keep bodies both healthy and hearty.
Licensed acupuncturist and herbologist Gina Haber treats hormonal imbalances, depression, pregnancy pains, allergies, and other bodily woes with traditional Chinese techniques and healing practices. During a thorough consultation, the needle-wielding practitioner completes a comprehensive medical-history evaluation and a traditional pulse diagnosis of the body's 12 energy channels before determining a diagnosis and potential treatment plan. Next, tension, pains, and hors d'oeuvres are gently skewered and whisked away by individually packaged and sterilized needles during the 30-minute acupuncture session. Finally, nimble digits explore and deconstruct knots and tension like a Boy Scout literature professor.
