Licensed acupuncturist Billy "Shonez" Singh is passionate about sharing the healing benefits of traditional Chinese medicine with his patients.

Ultimate Gym's trainers first kicked open its doors in 1986, and their no-nonsense attitude toward hard work and smart training have endured since then. Trainers challenge students through cardio and muscle-toning drills in boot camps, yoga, and Zumba sessions, and a staff, led by coach Billy Reuter, uploads self-defense maneuvers into feet and fists in their Ultimate Fighting Solutions classes for kids and adults. Layered on a foundation of Krav Maga, which was developed and battlefield tested by the Israeli Defense Forces, the system blends moves from across the martial-arts spectrum to train people to defend against real-world scenarios. After churning out new muscles, guests can visit the onsite chiropractor to manage pain, recover from an injury, and turn their heads back toward the front after a boxing match.
In the past decade, Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Locke has treated nearly 4,000 patients for ailments including headaches, neck pain, back pain, wrist and hand pain, and hip and leg pain. Dr. Locke relies on a non-needle surface EMG scan to detect hidden problems in the muscles and joints of spines, then uses Active Release and Graston techniques to release knots in muscles and joints. He aims to loosen joints and relieve clients of pain quickly, safely, and comfortably.
In The Zone Personal Fitness’s owner and fitness director, Dr. Marisa R. Silver, approaches fitness from a medical perspective. She calls upon her training as a licensed chiropractor and nutritionist—along with certifications in personal training, Zumba, and spinning, just to name a few—to customize strength-training, weight-loss, and fitness programs for each client. Together with her staff of fellow personal trainers and acupuncturists, she aims to boost her clients’ health from all angles.
The healers at Total Health Acupuncture & Massage each hold certifications in their respective fields, but that's not why clients keep coming back. It's the relief they provide that appeals to those in pain. Acupuncturists ease pain by inserting thin needles into the body, which rebalance inner energy not only to fight conditions such as headaches and insomnia, but also to help clients kick addictions to food or cigarettes. Massage therapists complement acupuncture with deep, flowing massage strokes that work out knots in the back that, if left untreated, can develop into really tricky sailor's knots.
East Hills Chiropractic's Dr. Jason S. Brattner believes that it's his responsibility to diagnose and treat chronic pain. It was this philosophy that led him to voluntarily provide chiropractic care to first responders after 9/11, and that still leads him to attend to the root cause of his patients' aches, whether it be a sprain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, or stress, with natural and holistic chiropractic methods. The Graston Technique, an athlete-developed soft-tissue mobilization, uses steel instruments to detect and break down scar tissue, treating fibrosis and chronic inflammation. His gentler techniques, such as soft-tissue massages and chanting of ancient lullabies, work to assuage tension throughout the body. Before patients leave his office, Dr. Brattner teaches them ergonomic back exercises that they can perform at home.
