Degrees in chemistry, holistic spirituality, and theology decorate massage therapist Jonathan Nidock?s walls, complementing his 20 years of experience while alluding to his dual commitment to therapeutic bodywork and spiritual nurturing.
Jonathan pairs this commitment with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology to administer relaxing massages that call upon modalities such as myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. Though each maintains a specific focus, Jonathan?s massages all work to stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation, dissipate tension, and curb chronic aches caused by wearing Kick Me signs made of concrete. Ideal for addressing uncertainties in the organs and nervous system, Jonathan?s holistic foot-reflexology treatments promote well-being through the application of thumb pressure to specific points on the feet, which are thought to correspond to various organs in the body.
After experiencing the effectiveness of acupuncture firsthand as patients, the clinic’s three practitioners, Erin, Jennifer, and Dennis, avidly sought master’s degrees at New York City's Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. During their studies, they found one another and bonded over their healing experiences with acupuncture. After school, they started up their own clinic as a place herbal treatments could complement acupuncture and regular infusions of light jazz as a complete wellness regimen. By inserting thin, sterilized, disposable needles, the doctors begin the healing process by targeting specific points in the body's energy channels. Acupuncture relieves a variety of physiological and mental symptoms, as does the herbal medicine it complements at the clinic. Treatments are preceded with an in-depth consultation addressing physical and emotional needs.
Holding multiple diplomas in acupuncture and Chinese herbology, Six Fishes Healing Arts founder and head practitioner Cara Frank draws upon three decades of experience to heal patients with Eastern and holistic modalities. Frank and her colleagues Tansy Briggs and Jennifer Harrison specialize in internal medicine, addressing a variety of ailments within an office boasting exposed-brick walls, wisdom-crammed bookshelves, and huge windows swathed with bright red curtains. The trio uses acupuncture, massage, herbs, and nutrition counseling to holistically treat chronic symptoms by aligning the mind, body, and spirit.
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.
In a partnership with the Physicians Weight Loss Center Northeast Philadelphia, Donna Skin Care?s staff attempts to restore natural beauty to weathered visages. Microdermabrasions and custom facials with ingredients including raspberry and peach or coconut papaya enzymes aim to exfoliate pores while sloughing away dead skin cells. This results in glowing skin with a minimized appearance of acne scarring, sun spots, and visible signs of aging such as fine lines or bifocals.
Therapists tailor each stroke to individual preferences to create massages that cater to long-term health goals or simply focus on the particular stresses of the day. In addition to quelling immediate aches, they aim to prevent future pain by locating and treating problems at their source, and also tout massage as a great way to boost energy and enhance mobility, helping clients run faster, jump higher, and break dance with greater spontaneity.
