Doctor of Chiropractic Scott Solomon's passion for his chiropractic practice is rooted in personal experience. When he was young, he grappled with severe migraines. After undergoing chiropractic care and noticing a great improvement, Dr. Solomon went into the field himself, graduating from Life University and earning licenses from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and the Pennsylvania Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
Eventually, Dr. Solomon took up his craft at The Wellness Studio & Chiropractic, where he and his staff combine chiropractic care with massage therapy to alleviate ailments such as back pain, migraines, or fibromyalgia. Their chiropractic adjustments straighten crooked spines and improve flexibility specifically so patients can moonlight as contortionists. Massage therapists incorporate hot stones and aromatherapy into their sessions, whereas an acupuncture treatment can further relieve sore bodies.
At Ridgegate Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturist and physical therapist Richard Firnhaber puts his therapeutic knowledge to use in pain-alleviating acupuncture sessions. Using thin, sterile needles, Richard helps his patients overcome headaches, fatigue, and stress throughout regimens comprising 45- to 60-minute treatments.
Nestled amid the rolling hills of Bucks County, Pennridge Wellness Center's historical, 2,000-square-foot building lends a quaint façade to Doctor of Chiropractic J. Leah Garlan's cutting-edge facility. Dr. Garlan is a veteran of many disciplines—chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, yoga, and Erchonia cold-laser treatments—and even holds a certification from the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association. During her career, she's performed a variety of duties, from helping paralyzed dogs regain mobility to helping humans regain the ability to bend over and pet their dogs after comprehensive chiropractic treatment.
After studying psychology at Kean College, licensed acupuncturist Mary Ellen M. DeVito decided to try something new. She pursued a Masters in Acupuncture from Won Institute of Graduate studies, became AMTA certified, and completed a two-year intensive program under the tutelage of renowned herbalist David Winston.
Once she had the training, DeVito put it to use by launching Trinity Acupuncture of Doylestown, a holistic wellness clinic that offers services including acupuncture, herbal medicine, moxibustion, and extra-therapeutic high-fives. When a new client arrives to the center, DeVito begins with a consultation before prescribing a plan of action that can pull from any of the center’s treatment repertoire to most quickly treat conditions ranging from chronic pain to asthma.
A licensed acupuncturist with the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine, Jason Rinker is qualified to design treatment plans based on holistic assessments of his patients. Patients step into Mr. Rinker's office to discuss their goals for the visit, which can include relief from stress, pain, or inflammation caused by injury or unmediated pride. Treatment plans may cobble together an array of techniques that include acupuncture, cupping, and moxibustion, an herbally based practice.
Lauren Cunha turned to acupuncture to treat digestive troubles in her early 20s. The success she experienced with the effective, low-cost health-care method guided Lauren to attend acupuncture school and, later, offer her services on a sliding scale to broaden the community's access to the treatment. Now a licensed acupuncturist, she helps patients suffering from digestive issues, migraines, insomnia, fatigue, and TMJ. She offers treatments in a group setting, where comfortable recliners are situated near one another so friends or family can receive acupuncture at the same appointment and be close enough to pass the time with a thumb-war tournament.
