Voted Best Chiropractor by Delray Forum readers in 2010, Dr. Melissa Maher leads a team of expert therapists who specialize in cosmetic and therapeutic nonsurgical acupuncture treatments. During acupuncture treatments, patrons sip on a detoxifying tea of their choice, as needle wielders conduct a thorough consultation that includes an analysis of individual physical conditions and the contents of dream journals. Acupuncturists then cloak corporeal pressure points in strategically placed delicate, disposable needles that can help to repel maladies, including migraines, fatigue, and stress. Follow-up treatments reinforce previous healthful strides forward and enable continued healing.
Treatment add-ons bolster relaxation, with options such as a hot-stone foot massage that uses heated basalt stones to stimulate circulation, nurture damaged muscles, and defrost TV dinners. An infrared detox treatment employs waves of visible-spectrum-evading light to evict pernicious agents such as mercury, nicotine, and alcohol from their cellular burrows via a reduction of ionic bonds. Patrons emerge from their treatments feeling as animated and refreshed as a cartoon awakening from a catnap. In addition to acupuncture, Maher and her team perform additional services, including massages, myofascial-release treatments, physical therapy, and health workshops.
