Saltana Cave hearkens back to an ancient tradition of spending time in salt caves and mines to treat respiratory ailments. Benefits of breathing in negatively charged ionized salt and other trace minerals may include improving the symptoms of asthma, allergies, acne, and eczema as well as decreasing the side effects of smoking. What’s more, Saltana Cave looks otherworldly—its literal tons of Himalayan salt rock create a relaxing environment with their pink glow. Soothing background music and zero-gravity lounge chairs help you get zen in this accessible retreat.
Comprehensive Acupuncture's experienced healer, Irina M. Magdul, uses more than 20 years of pain-prodding experience to relieve stress through precise needle placement and assorted therapeutic remedies. Acupuncture gently inserts needles into ailing areas to alleviate chronic pain, relieve muscle tension, and locate hard-to-find human reset buttons. Electrical acupuncture stimulation adds an electric jolt to needles to stimulate muscle groups with continuous pulses, and auriculotherapy prods the ear's outer lobe to relieve a gambit of ailments throughout the entire body. For puncture-free remedies, cupping places cups onto specific acupuncture points and then uses suction to therapeutically pull tissue upward, helping tendons to abdicate pain and conquer their fear of vacuums.

Boris Shapiro grew up in the Soviet Union with a fascination with martial arts and Eastern medical practices instilled in him at an early age. He initially pursued Western medicine as a career, and in an attempt to broaden his abilities, he began incorporating Eastern practices into his work. However, after earning his medical doctorate, he decided to abandon his traditional Western practice, and headed to the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York to earn a degree in acupuncture. He has since studied under countless acupuncture experts, and applies his knowledge one needle at a time, working to help his patients maintain overall wellness. Among many other ailments, his treatments are designed to address back pain, stress, fatigue, and depression.
In place of aromatherapy oils, prescription medications, and invasive surgeries, the team of licensed chiropractors and massage therapists at USA Massage & Chiropractic rely on holistic treatment modalities that target the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The therapists begin by identifying each client's particular needs, pinpointing the locations of everything from knotted muscles to misaligned discs. From there, they recommend a personalized treatment regimen that can incorporate spinal-decompression therapy, chiropractor-directed massages, or any number of pain-alleviating procedures. Regardless of the specific modality, every treatment has the same goal—to help clients return to an unencumbered, pain-free lifestyle.
Elizabeth Wang uses Eastern medicine to manage her patients's ailments. The primary treatment she employs is acupuncture, whose hair-thin needles can be used to relieve medical issues, reduce signs of aging, or sew jackets for her finger puppets. During traditional acupuncture treatments, Wang inserts the needles into specific parts of the body to alleviate chronic pain, symptoms of asthma, and digestive troubles, among other issues. When inserted into the face, the needles increase circulation and moisture levels in the skin to smooth fine lines and reduce puffiness around the eyes. Wang often couples acupuncture with Chinese herbs, cupping treatments, and tui na massages.
