At Balance Health Center, balance is the central philosophy and comes into play through many of the center's services. During both private and group yoga classes, instructors teach students to hold asanas to strengthen their core muscles and tone their bodies. The ancient practice is also renown for helping harmonize the mind, body, and spirit through physical exercise and meditation, which helps practitioners with stress relief and balancing both physical and spiritual needs.
But the health center doesn't offers more than yoga to meet those goals. The team here takes a holistic approach in all their practices, whether they are offering workshops on Feng Shui or acupuncturists are administering their procedures to tackle issues such as insomnia or a crippling fear of acupuncture needles.
Dr. Jeremy Tremblay first discovered the powers of chiropractic in his 20s, when a several-month bout of excruciating back pain disappeared in only three visits to his local specialist. Ever since, Dr. Tremblay has devoted himself to chiropractic study, garnering a bevy of degrees that have culminated in his current tenure at Quest Chiropractic. An advocate of natural healthcare, the doctor bolsters his chiropractic exams and spine-straightening adjustments with a complete holistic regimen that includes nutritional counseling, massage therapy, corrective exercises, and role-playing games with the office's skeleton model.
An Advanced Proficiency Rated Activator doctor who specializes in natural pain management, Dr. Jeffrey Shusman has been de-kinkifying the backs of Philadelphians for nearly 25 years. Your session begins with a consultation to determine the nature and source of your body's bugaboos, after which Dr. Shusman will administer an Impulse iQ adjustment. During this adjustment, the Impulse iQ—a hand-held, computerized device 100 times faster than traditional chiropractic methods—lightly taps your back and feeds the data of each tap back into the device's microcomputer, which uses it to set the frequency of subsequent taps. Once the spine is in alignment, the Impulse iQ stops automatically. Relaxed muscles, soothed nerves, and internal organs spontaneously breaking out into song are common results of this gentle procedure.
Acupuncture is a gentle application of specifically placed thin needles that promote healing and decrease pain. This ancient modality dates back to 5000 BC and is currently world renowned for its affects on the reduction of pain.
Dr. Lenny Roberts is a champion of perseverance. After making it to the 1993 NCAA Division III National Football Championship, he underwent his sixth knee surgery and was forced to call it quits. But "quit" isn't exactly in Dr. Roberts's vocabulary. He forged ahead to pursue a career in amateur boxing and won a silver medal in the 1999 Georgia Games before conquering the San Diego marathon in 2006 and the Philadelphia Triathlon in 2008. After earning his chiropractic doctorate from Life University, Dr. Roberts fused sports with medicine in what some might consider a dream job: chiropractic consultant for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Today, Dr. Roberts treats patients with the same care that he would afford an NBA player or a baby who has been drafted into the NBA. His chiropractic services help to improve spinal biomechanics, implementing techniques ranging from spinal decompression to extremity adjustments for joints such as shoulders, ankles, and wrists. He also works closely with his staff to help relieve pains, induce relaxation, and rejuvenate the skin with massage therapy and beauty treatments.
When he isn't mastering endurance sports, healing NBA players, or diffusing suspicions that he is Batman, Dr. Roberts volunteers his time for Habitat for Humanity and Little League baseball.
Dr. Faustino certainly has his chiropractic specialties—which range from subluxation correction to sports injury rehab—but he also takes a holistic approach to wellness. That means he treats the entire person and offers preventive treatments rather than focusing on symptoms only when they arise. For the past 25 years, he's relied on this foundation while adjusting spines. He and his trained staff at Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center tend to patients at all stages of life, from infancy to those already in their second robot bodies.
