The experts at Advanced Spine & Wellness center believe that a large number of physical problems can be traced back to issues with the spine. Poor posture, back and neck pain, and headaches may all be signs of a weakened or damaged spinal column. By treating these problems at their source, the center may be able to not only resolve existing symptoms, but improve the function and performance of patients' bodies for the long term. Of course, every person is different, which is why the doctors perform one-on-one consultations with patients before crafting a personalized treatment plan. Thanks to a diverse and experienced staff, these plans may include not only chiropractic care, but physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and medical pain management, ensuring that issues will be tackled from every angle for the best possible outcome. This approach appears to be effective: high-performance athletes, including former professional football players, dancers, and professional arm wrestlers, have praised the center's team.
Patients' mental well-being is paramount to Dr. Irene Feldman and Dr. Helena Stefan, which explains the center's emphasis on confidence-boosting cosmetic procedures and holistically targeted alternative therapies. After more than 25 years of experience working as an endocrinologist and internist, Dr. Feldman redirected her focus to cosmetic medicine and currently oversees noninvasive treatments with laser systems by such manufacturers as Candela, Sciton, and the Knights Templar. Dr. Stefan learned her holistic craft during a seven-year apprenticeship under Chinese physicians, who taught her the arts of acupuncture and natural medicine, and she continues to further her education in nutrition, herbology, and homeopathy.
Using techniques that have been perfected over the past three millennia, licensed acupuncturists and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners Zhongliang and Yi Gao combat ailments with natural healing. Their treatments include massage, traditional acupuncture, and cupping, an alternative form of acupuncture that eschews needles for manually suctioned cups. They also recommend teas or powder-filled capsules from their herbal stores to help cleanse toxins and espresso beans from bodily systems.
During your initial consultation, a certified practitioner will sit down with you for a one-on-one discussion. Disclose any health concerns and ailments so they can be addressed with the proper honorifics. An assessment of your pulse and iPod playlist as well as a physical exam will be performed before the treatment begins. Each treatment is targeted to meet individual needs. Expect your first appointment to last 1.5 to 2 hours including the consultation, the acupuncture, and 10 minutes of debating the relative merits of the Yak Bak and the Talkboy.
Since becoming a certified acupuncturist in 2001, Dr. Ying Li has helped clients suffering from carpel tunnel, migraines, frozen shoulders, and back pain. Though her approach to each of these ailments is tailored to the client in need, her philosophy remains the same for everyone: address painful symptoms and pursue a healthier, more balanced body. At her clinic, she combines acupuncture treatments with other types of Eastern and Western medicine, including acupressure massage and nutrition programs. These services strive to help clients with both chronic and acute conditions, as well as those on-again, off-again conditions that just won't move on with their lives. Visitors can also benefit from reflexology sessions, during which different areas of the feet are massaged to affect corresponding body parts.
Dr. Shirin Aghahosseini began her career studying radiology in Germany, where she found herself working with cancer patients for almost a decade. Fueled by a desire to help prevent illness rather than just treat it, she decide to change direction. After studying acupuncture in China, she eventually opened Holistic Life Center. Today, she's able to focus on a preventive approach to medicine using tools such as acupuncture, herbology, and wrapping patients in many, many layers of bubble wrap. She uses these techniques to treat a wide spectrum of medical conditions, ranging from asthma to carpal tunnel syndrome to knee pain. Her reach, however, extends beyond physical maladies. Using acupuncture, for example, she attempts to redirect and unblock energy to help heal those suffering from problems such as anxiety, depression, and headaches.
