Licensed and certified acupuncturist Chris M. Ohman combines his specialty with a range of complementary procedures that together coax discomfort out of his patients’ bodies. During consultations, he pores over medical histories, chats with patients, and answers any questions about acupuncture and whether or not he considers his current lab coat his lucky one. Through the careful placement of very fine needles at key points on the body’s energy pathways, the practitioner works to address such maladies as insomnia, allergies, pain, and stress. Should he deem it necessary, he couples the acupuncture service with the complementary services of far-infrared heat and moxibustion, a treatment based on the belief that mugwort has soothing powers.
Despite his homonymic surname, Doctor of Chiropractic Robert Peace takes the whole patient into consideration when diagnosing an ailment. In his holistic line of work, he knows that a surprising slew of health complaints can often be traced back to something as simple as spinal misalignments. By addressing underlying imbalances, rather than smothering the symptoms in prescription drugs and Hello Kitty band-aids, Dr. Peace can provide all-encompassing treatments. He is joined by a team of massage therapists and personal trainers who complement his work with services, such as the 8 Weeks to Wellness program, that leave bodies de-stressed and in finer fettle.
Chiropractic is in Dr. Gallagher's bones: his father, Dr. William Briggs, is a chiropractor whose clinic has been in operation since 1958. "With my father being one of the pioneers of chiropractic," Dr. Gallagher says, "I was taught that the body is an amazing self-healing and self-regulating organism." Though a few of his techniques use newer forms of technology, Dr. Gallagher's philosophy is based on the same principles he grew up with: prevention is key, fancy new drugs are not usually necessary, and health is more than just the absence of disease.
Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Holman made a discovery while studying as a premed student: the United States consumes over half of the world’s prescriptive medication but ranks 29th in overall health. Armed with this insight, he shifted his focus to a drug-free approach to wellness through chiropractic care. At Adjust Chiropractic, Dr. Holman and his staff target pain throughout the body with comprehensive wellness plans and gentle spinal adjustments.
At BodyBalance Techniques, the staffers view themselves as mechanics who jump-start the body's self-healing mechanisms. Instead of using jumper cables hooked up to a magical Ford Mustang, though, they rely on acupuncture treatments, nutrition therapy, and homeopathic remedies. For arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and chronic aches and pains, BodyBalance's team may recommend deep-tissue muscle-balancing sessions.
