After feeling the pain-relieving effects of acupuncture firsthand, Mehrafrouz “Ladan” R. Foradi resolved to study nutrition, acupuncture, and Oriental medicine, eventually putting her skills to work at her own acupuncture practice. Foradi consults with clients next to the earth-toned walls of her treatment rooms, explaining how acupuncture works to treat issues such as neck and pack pain, inflammation, arthritis, and needle deficiency. Soft classical music puts patients at ease before Foradi carefully inserts individually wrapped, disposable needles into acupuncture points. Foradi also offers other treatments to complement the effects of acupuncture, such as cupping, Tuina, and homeopathic injections.
Holistic wellbeing requires a balanced approach to healthcare that addresses physical as well as mental maladies. A Holistic Health Practitioner, Licensed Massage Therapist and Certified Personal Trainer, Phyleischa Owen takes this sort of approach with her clients. Doing so, she attempts to treat not just their symptoms but the underlying causes behind peoples’ problems. Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages help by relieving muscular strain, and Phyleischa’s needleless acupuncture sessions target the energetic imbalances that can contribute to anxiety, chronic pain, and depression. She also gives clients the education they need to live healthier lifestyles outside the studio, offering nutrition and fitness consultations.
HBL Centers cultivates a network of chiropractic professionals, boasting over 200 participating locations nationwide.

They may call on supplemental treatments, including rehabilitation exercises, electrical stimulation, and heat and ice administered by out-of-work shoulder angels and devils.
