As a doctor of oriental medicine and board-certified acupuncture physician, Shawn Gelestor uses all-natural medical solutions to steer her patients toward good health. Tucked inside the Yoga4All wellness center, Shawn's office plays host to a variety of different therapeutic modalities. Her bread and butter is acupuncture, an ancient Chinese technique that re-balances bodies while banishing common ailments such as acid reflux, migraines, and boredom. When she's not overseeing acupuncture sessions, Shawn performs services that include Chinese herbology, homeopathy, and cupping, which creates a vacuum on targeted body parts to stimulate blood flow.
Licensed massage therapist Carl Ocken heals people with his hands. He uses his knowledge of muscles and tendons to target his kneads, soothing strokes, and pressure to help alleviate pain and stress in his clients. Though Ocken specializes in deep-tissue massage, during which he uses firm pressure to unwind knots that can cause chronic pain, he is well versed in a number of modalities that include neck and shoulder massage. Regardless of the massage they receive, clients can kick back and relax in Ocken's professional massage chair. Aside from working out of a doctor's office, the therapist also packs up his practice to help reduce tension in clients' homes, offices, or submarines.
