A combination of chiropractic adjustments, massages, and physical therapy helps patients find relief from both chronic and new pain. The staff also works preventatively, offering lifestyle counseling and nutritional advice that introduces more healthful foods to your diet.
At Acupuncture & Holistic Medicine Inc, acupuncturist Evelyn Lopez takes a whole-person approach to wellness. When she assesses patients, she factors in sleep patterns, diet, and emotional health, for example, and that attention to detail shines through in her acupuncture too. As she distributes hairlike, stainless steel single-use sterile needles along meridian points, she uses techniques that are geared towards balancing the body. This applies equally to sessions for physical ailments, such as back pain and PMS, and more psychological maladies, like anxiety. However, Evelyn isn't restricted to acupuncture treatments alone—when appropriate, she can also prescribe Chinese herbal medicine, or tend to energy fields with touch-free reiki work.
Point Pleasant Wellness Spa's highly trained staff, including two practitioners knighted as certified master pedicurists by the International Pedicure Association, performs medical-level treatments to cleanse and care for human hooves. Powered by thousands of atom-size socks and carpets, an electromagnetic device imbues the saline water of the aqua detox footbath with positive and negative charges. The treatment runs anywhere from 25–50 minutes, affording ample time for the body to oust toxins through the pores and into the surrounding H2O.
When interviewed by Holistic Health magazine in 2006, Dr. Scott Denny proclaimed, “There is a great synergy when conventional medicine and oriental medicine are applied together.” This holistic harmony is readily apparent at Integrative Hospital Associates and MultiCare Clinic, where Dr. Denny has devoted his life to treating acute and chronic health issues with an approach that integrates the healing philosophies of both Eastern and Western medicine. Together with his personable team of chiropractic physicians, nutrition experts, and massage therapists, Dr. Denny works tirelessly to enhance clients' well-being through acupuncture and an array of other therapies designed to help combat addiction, disease, and habitual sleepsurfing. Oriental-medicine techniques, such as herbal medicine and the Gua Sha healing process, work alongside services based in conventional science, such as cold-laser therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Among other accolades, Dr. Denny is the 11-time recipient of the Continuing Education Excellence Award in Pain Management and has served as the President of the American Academy of Pain Management and the head of acupuncture services at Holy Cross Hospital Feldman Center for Optimal Health. The compassionate doctor has been featured in local news media for his “multifaceted approach” to treating chronic pain and is also the inventor of Dodai Fusion Therapy, a combination of ancient Japanese manual therapy and meridian-based acupuncture techniques.
With the belief that many of the body’s maladies and chronic pain stem from spinal misalignment, Dr. Michael Cohen and his staff dedicate themselves to helping patients achieve overall wellness through drug-free, holistic treatments. Specializing in auto-accident injuries, neck and back pain, and chronic headaches, Dr. Cohen employs such healing arts as K laser therapy and spinal decompression. Both techniques utilize advanced technology designed to reduce pain. The staff also tends to achy muscles during massage sessions with a combination of precise pressures and long, soothing strokes.
