Just as peanut butter teams up with jelly, traditional Western medicines team up with alternative approaches at iMedCenter, in the pursuit of overall wellness.

The staff strengthens its program of personalized health plans with an abundant use of technology, which iMedCenter’s website claims garnered them a Healthcare Heroes Award for Innovation in 2011 from the Governor.
For more than 25 years, chiropractor Phil Dolcimascolo has eschewed the use of surgery or drugs to rehabilitate his clients. Instead, he focuses on gentle, noninvasive chiropractic services and smart, preventative care to keep his patients healthy and pain-free. Each visitor first undergoes a thorough consultation, telling the practitioner about any past or current health issues, how long aches have been persisting, and how they may be interfering with daily life. From there, treatments might include gentle adjustments, different forms of massage, or other individualized treatments to help ease physical tension and stress.
Dr. Mark Joachim's psychology, chiropractic, and immunology background qualifies him to operate the integrative BioSet system, which blends techniques of Eastern and Western medicine. At Allergy Elimination Norwalk, the BioSet-certified practitioner and his staff blend electromagnetic testing with chiropractic, acupuncture, and nutrition theories and techniques to diagnose and treat the body's sensitivities. A significant element of treatment, digestive enzymes aid stomachs struggling to digest certain foods or poststructuralist theories.
Healthy Massage’s crew of experienced massage therapists helps customers recharge with a relentlessly relaxing lineup of nine massage modalities. They usher guests into robin-egg-blue rooms before inducing relaxation with a Swedish massage, reducing stress with a hot-stone massage, or targeting areas of pain and strained muscles with deep-tissue or sport massage. The staff also performs facials, waxing services, and reflexology massages that feel better than slipping on rain boots filled with warm olive oil.
The specialists at Advanced Health Professionals address their clients' ailments with an approach they've dubbed "dynamic rehabilitation." This method marries techniques from both physical therapy and chiropractic care with the hope of delivering speedier recoveries and more balanced bodies. Custom exercises, stretches, and extra algebra homework are often prescribed to help clients continue their healing between appointments.
Doctor of Chiropractic and certified acupuncturist Patrick J. Guerin helms Westport Chiropractic, where he and his staff perform nonsurgical treatments for neck, back, and spine issues. They offer spinal decompression, adjustments, and acupuncture to help assuage leg, shoulder, hand, and foot pain, along with other maladies such as herniated discs and headaches.
To help clients combat weight problems, Westport Chiropractic offers noninvasive Lipo Light body-contouring treatments. These use light and heat energy to shrink fat cells and boost collagen and elastin production, which results in lost inches and smoother, tighter skin. Dr. Guerin also uses ear acupuncture to decrease a client's desire for food.
