Dr. Deb Genrick believes the body has extraordinary abilities to heal itself, and that doctors and wellness physicians should strive to assist in that process.

Informed by traditional Chinese medical practices, Chinese Acupuncture & Herb Center’s skilled acupuncturist bridges broken synapses between the mind and body with holistic treatments that prove a valuable counterpoint to Western medicine. Each treatment begins with an assessment that takes into account prior health conditions before embarking on a healing journey designed to improve the body's holistic well-being. Along the way, sterile single-use acupuncture needles help to boost the immune system and free up inner energy; cupping stimulates blood flow by creating a warming, vacuum-like sensation across the skin. To further encourage holistic healing, many of the center’s treatments incorporate natural herbs and remedies, such as herbal massage oils which help deepen the effects of a relaxing massage.

Captained by licensed chiropractor Dr. Larry Estebo, Premier Health Chiropractic's team of spine adjusters has been scrutinizing and soothing pained backs since 1983. After discussing patient health issues and treatment options during a brief consultation, doctors perform a chiropractic examination, testing bodily flexibility, posture, and how quickly knees can answer riddles. If necessary, doctors x-ray patients to more closely inspect them for signs of spinal misalignment or degeneration. Following the initial 20- to 30-minute diagnosis, doctors magically transform their digits into masseuse fingers, digging and rubbing into the deepest, tensest contours of client spines during a 30-minute session that unburdens backs of persistent stress knots and lower-back tattoos.
Metro Vein Clinic's Dr. Kamran Afzal makes unsightly veins vanish from the surfaces of legs during minimally invasive sclerotherapy sessions, enlisting injections rather than surgery. During an initial evaluation, Dr. Afzal briefly reviews the client's medical history before performing a physical and ultrasound to detect veins that have been stopped up by age, overexertion, or a wrinkle in the time-space continuum. A board-certified physician then employs a thin needle to infuse each defunct vein with a solution of chemicals that irritate the vein's lining and cause it to collapse. Eventually, the body reabsorbs the sunken squiggles so that they are no longer visible.
