Dr. Allison Yee—an Indiana University health physician—and Melinda Johnson dislike medications and surgery as a rule of big toe. They instead opt to treat toenail fungus—which can spread quickly, cause discoloration, and incite impolite glances at sandal expos—with a noninvasive, handheld laser system. During quick sessions, they bombard affected nail plates and surrounding tissue with the heated energy from the intense light to eventually banish fungi and promote new, clear nails without painful side effects.
The six pulses of your wrist, the quality of your tongue—Lei Shaw scrutinizes such aspects of the body to pinpoint signs of imbalance. One way of rectifying those imbalances is through acupuncture, a technique the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist honed while serving as resident doctor at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in China. She performs sessions by inserting thin needles at specific points of the body to help restore the flow of energy and increase empathy toward pincushions. To alleviate muscle tightness and sprains, Lei turns to cupping, in which heated glass cups placed on patients’ skin create a vacuum that boosts circulation. She further stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with personalized Chinese herbal formulas administered through pills or capsules.
If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, Europeans probably don’t understand the math; but the practitioners at Dimick Family Chiropractic are based in the metric-system-declining U.S., so they get it. With that knowledge, they use spinal adjustments and massage therapy to prevent as well as to treat ailments of the body. Under the direction of Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey M. Dimick, practitioners seek out the root cause of maladies and address them through holistic means. In addition to adjustments and massage, they use kinesio taping and spinal decompression to put the body back into balance, unlike a child’s checkbook.
ProWellness's certified massage therapists have many years of experience between them, having untied more flesh-knots and restraightened more teettering Jenga-block spines than the 1965 Olympic championship Ukranian Rubbing Team. While they specialize in penetrating techniques such as deep tissue, myofacial release, and trigger point, you can opt for softer techniques like the flowy Swedish, the pre-natal, and hot stone. Their modern office facility features enough open space and gleaming surfaces to calm the mind of any jittery docoto-phobe, and even houses a children's play area to help make the waiting and treatment process stressless.
