Dr. Matt R Wurst had never tried chiropractic care before the car accident. He was an active 16-year-old with a passion for sports and outdoor adventures—so, given his robust health, it was strange that the whiplash wouldn't go away. After exhausting traditional medical options, he turned to chiropractic. It cured his whiplash and changed his life. Now, Dr. Wurst has a degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic and a practice that he says has "been able to help many who had lost all hope."
He starts with a complimentary consultation, but from there, the treatment depends on the patient's needs and preferences. For some, corrective exercises and lifestyle advice may help ease chronic aches, while for others, 60-minute massages help loosen stiff muscles and relieve neck and back pain.

Trained as a nurse before becoming a nationally certified acupuncturist and herbalist, Robert Stanford uses ancient Chinese techniques to help bring bodies into functional harmony. During the acupuncture session, tiny needles are strategically placed in precise locations on the body to stimulate internal healing. An initial consultation and exam provide an opportunity to question a knowledgeable professional and a sounding board to try out a new batch of doctor jokes on. Taking into account variables such as lifestyle and diet, Coastal Acupuncture can address health conditions including anxiety, allergies, and pain. Like a cactus gearing up for swimsuit season, patients will be de-spined and ready to go in 60–90 minutes.
Mount Pleasant Acupuncture?s owner Pamela Rhoades found her calling after a journey that took her out of the corporate world and into the healing arts. After 14 years immersed in the stress of a desk job, she left to work for a decade as a massage therapist while simultaneously caring for her ill mother. As she took her mother to the doctors, she noticed how little time Western medical professionals spent with their patients?they just prescribed medication and moved on. Eventually, she underwent her own acupuncture sessions, found a connection in the attentiveness of the process, and earned her license.
Though people generally come to her seeking relief for chronic pain?often after trying Western medicine and wizard spells?Pamela points to myriad other disorders acupuncture can ameliorate: IBS, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, and recurring health issues such as sinus infections and UTIs. She performs longer, more intensive sessions in a private room, laying patients on a massage table so that she can access both the front and back of their bodies at the same time. To supplement her acupuncture treatments, Pamela can advise clients on herbs and supplements, including 3,000-year-old Chinese formulas, more contemporary blends, and modern glucosamine, fish oil, and Flintstones vitamins.
