Western medicine may stem from centuries of technological and scientific advancements, but Chinese medicine relies on millennia-old practices that take a broader view of health care and well-being. These practices inspire the staff members at Point Flow Acupuncture, who aim to treat their clients with personalized therapies—such as restoring balance with acupuncture, herbal formulas, or massage—and encourage the body's natural healing processes. In addition to addressing the symptoms, holistic therapies aim to improve health across the entire body by treating the underlying causes.
Point Flow Acupuncture's founder, Joyce, began her health-care career more than 30 years ago as a radiologic technologist. In addition to working closely with ob-gyn physicians and reproductive endocrinologists, she also suffered from the physical and mental trauma of polycystic ovarian syndrome. These professional and personal experiences inspired Joyce to create a studio dedicated to addressing infertility and women's health concerns. However, she chose to leave behind the medical practices from her first profession and fully commit to the natural, holistic treatment methods that first granted her relief from her own pains.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, injuries from auto accidents, and stress are no match for the staff at Advanced Physical Medicine. The professionals, led by Dr. David Williamson, treat a wide range of issues with a bushel of services. Tense muscles and back pain politely take their leave thanks to chiropractic therapy and massage. The ancient treatment of acupuncture connects with the body's energy to help slay headaches and anxiety. In addition, a guided weight loss program arms clients with a diet and exercise plan that not only helps them lose weight but also improves their mood and changes their blood sugar to blood Splenda.
Dr. Pat Calcagno and his team of physicians, therapists, and trainers at Olympia Chiropractic marshal clients toward good health at four Chicago-area locations. Through chiropractic services, athletic training, and physical and massage therapy, they treat conditions extending from lower back pain and headaches to stress and injuries related to sports. They also employ some of the industry's latest technologies, including the Alter-G antigravity treadmill and the Pro-Adjuster, a computerized instrument that scans the spine for problem spots.
Doctor of Chiropractic Sheryar Masud puts his chiropractic skills to use combating scoliosis and other spinal conditions. He also alleviates everyday aches and pains through manual adjustments and acupuncture treatments. To help prevent further health complications in his patients, Dr. Masud dispenses lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling, such as how much protein is really needed in a diet and which color Starburst has the fewest calories.
As a chiropractic patient herself, Dr. Stephanie Beelendof works to alleviate the impinged spinal nerves, or subluxations, in patients of all ages and conditions. She uses six different types of chiropractic techniques, relying mainly on the “specific prone” method, which gently nudges discs into healthier positions where they no longer pinch delicate nerve tissue.
