Licensed acupuncturist Sylvia Rosario, a doctor of oriental medicine from Florida College of Integrative Medicine, uses acupuncture and its many variations as a healing power at Acupuncture Integrative Wellness Center. Depending on her patients' needs, which can range from needing pain relief to a newly knit sweater, Dr. Rosario can schedule traditional acupuncture, acupoint injection therapy, laser acupuncture therapy, cupping therapy, needle-less acupuncture, or a combination of therapies. Dr. Rosario also offers alternative treatments such as reiki, homeopathy, tai chi, and herbal medicine to foster overall wellness.
Dr. Luis Del Rio and the crew at Infinite Health & Spine Center not only relieve structural and muscular issues with traditional chiropractic adjustments, but also attempt to stop pain before it starts. The clinic's own weight-loss program can alleviate some of the pressure placed on spines and muscles, sparing clients future back problems. When pain is already present, licensed massage therapists knead bodies with five different types of massage. The entire staff is bilingual, so they can consult with patients in either Spanish or English, though a single syllable of Italian makes them cry in confusion.
Led by Dr. Eudene Harry, the staff at Oasis for Wellness and Rejuvenation Center crafts comprehensive, customized weight loss plans that look into underlying physical, emotional, and mental stress related to diet. Wellness journeys begin at the center, where a one-hour consultation includes a body-composition analysis, which calculates body mass, registers deficiencies that may be contributing to weight gain, and takes note of excellent screenplay ideas floating one's psyche. With results from the body screening in hand, a doctor leads a conversation with each patient to design an original diet and exercise plan that incorporates imbalance-correcting foods and nutrients. Plans build in weekly counseling sessions to monitor client progress, discuss book recommendations, and lend a professional ear to the patient’s questions or concerns.
A devotee of meditation for many years, Heidi Chinlund found that hypnosis and self-hypnosis transported her to deep mental states more quickly than meditation ever had. Since becoming a Certified Clinical Hypnotist in 2010, Heidi has harnessed her hypnotic voice to help patients decrease their anxiety, gain confidence, and relieve pain from chronic ailments. She has also designed hypnosis sessions to access memories from past lives, as well as sessions to quit smoking by changing behaviors on the subconscious level.
Voted 2011's #1 Fitness Center by Suburban Focus, Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center’s 90,000-square-foot workout compound facilitates user-friendly body sculpting through its vast array of fitness and recreation equipment. Calibrated to absorb the pressure from running, walking, and galloping astride stick horses, the cushioned indoor track supports moving feet with a stress-free surface. Demonstrate a synchronized-swimming act in one of three pools, or take on a revivifying blast of vaporized water in the sauna and steam room. Patrons can build biceps and tone tensors with machine-bound and free weights or stack barbells until the pile resembles their favorite president. Flanked by a squadron of rowing machines and stationary bikes, a floor stocked with ellipticals, stair steppers, and treadmills keeps heart rates pumped.
Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Farmer needed a chiropractor before he became one. Suffering from scoliosis as a child, he went to his family chiropractor, whose hands-on techniques kept him out of the operatory and in sports. Wanting to take costly, risky surgery out of the equation for others, Dr. Farmer attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, the world's oldest chiropractic school, where he eventually became a teacher.
Now ensconced at Orlando Chiropractic and Physical Rehab, LLC, Dr. Farmer treats his patients with spinal rehabilitation therapy (SRT). This therapy seeks to reverse the five components of spinal injury, such as pain and loss of motion, with a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments, massage, and physical rehab. He and the team demonstrate their devotion to patients by taking time to get to know them during consultations and listening to questions and concerns while helping devise a treatment plan. If, through careful examination, Dr. Farmer believes he can't help a patient, he and the staff work to locate someone who can, either through extensive research or by making smoke signals in doctor script.
