Acupuncture served as the main healthcare treatment for thousands of years, and it is still the go-to therapy for millions of people worldwide. Acupuncture physician Richard Browne is at the forefront of this field as both a practitioner and an educator.
Browne is the cofounder and president of Acupuncture and Massage College, which has been a community staple for more than 30 years. When not teaching budding acupuncturists how to strategically place needles or deflate sinister-looking balloon animals, he can be found at Affordable Acupuncture Clinic, practicing acupuncture himself or overseeing his interns while they practice it.
Browne and his staff also offer services ranging from cupping therapy to shiatsu massage to Reiki. They work to relieve such ailments as back pain, headaches, and insomnia.
Physical therapist Cathy Parbst-Accurso knows full well the importance of a working, wellness-filled body. A former duathlon national champion, Cathy sprinted and cycled her way into the history books as the highest-placing American in the world championship. Now, she and her team at In Balance Physical Therapy help clients recover from injuries or retain current fitness levels with personalized treatment regimens. Depending on the goals and diagnoses, clients might test out custom foot orthotics, undergo running analysis, or sit for one of the wellness clinics taught by office staff.
