At Pittsburgh Alternative Health, friendly staffers join Doctor of Naturopathy Darrell Misak and needle-free acupressure specialist, Dr. Wan Huang to restore and maximize bodily health and mental well-being with holistic treatments. Toxins are expelled during sauna sessions, where infrared light saps contaminants from muscles, and relaxing ionic footbaths, which kiss the feet with gentle electrical charges. Relaxed patrons can glide into a private mental-rest room, where a programmed audio-visual show lures minds into a state of alert relaxation with music, lights, and footage of baby pandas learning to cartwheel. The health center can also aid patients on the road to health with analytic testing. During an EAV test, technicians use a fusion of mechanical methods and ancient acupuncture pressure points to study the body’s energy. The results can pinpoint sensitivities to foods, chemicals, or existentialist poems that may be decreasing energy or causing other health problems.

Licensed Acupuncturists Sydnie Bryant, Jessica Fritz, and Daniel Johnson, who hold masters degrees from the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine, balance the bodies and minds of their clients with deft acupuncture expertise. Invoking the ameliorative properties of the 5,000-year-old treatment, a knowledgeable needler will assess clients’ health by feeling nine pulsations at each wrist and observing the color and form of the face, the tongue, and the body before beginning the pin-cushioning process. During the one-hour session, guests are invited to relax as each gentle needle insertion spearheads stress and deflates tension, inducing a mellow mood that can help to alleviate ailments, improve immunity, increase fertility, and bend spoons.

With a commitment to cleanliness, Wholistic Acupuncture uses only sterilized, stainless-steel needles during the treatment, which are promptly donated to prematurely shedding hedgehogs after a single use.
