Relaxation and education are the pillars of Prime Meridian, where licensed acupuncturists bestow clients with the tools and knowledge to take charge of their own health. Amid soft lighting and soothing music, the acupuncturists align hair-thin needles across the body’s energy channels to relieve stress or quell musculoskeletal, digestive, and emotional ailments with Tui Na therapeutic massage. Chinese herbal medicines come tailored to individual needs and call upon foods such as cinnamon, licorice, and Nutella to guide bodies to optimal health. The experts also administer nutritional and lifestyle advice and outfit patients with mediation exercises they can easily practice at home.
The Dental Emergency Room's team of doctors and dental assistants foster a gentle, stress-free environment in their state-of-the-art office. While always happy to help with emergency care, the team advocates regular exams to catch dental problems while they remain small and treatable. When aesthetic reconstruction is in order, they bolster smiles with services such as dental crowns, bridges, and implants. The staff further spoils their patients with seven-day-a-week appointment times and extended evening hours Monday–Thursday, ideal for busy professionals and vampires with toothaches.
Dr. Steven R. Hagerman wants patients to know they have options. On his website, he says that many people aren't aware of advances in modern dentistry that can "quickly, painlessly improve the health and appearance of someone's smile." Over the course of his three decades of dental experience, he has worked continually to keep up with these advances, outfitting his office with dentistry’s constantly evolving technology. Waterlase diode lasers replace harsh, noisy drills for minor tooth problems. The Wand computerized anesthesia-delivery system injects anesthetic at the same rate that tissue absorbs it, reducing the inaccuracy of shots given by human hands. And a DiagnoDent laser cavity-detection system locates tooth decay more accurately than older methods, such as visual exams or tossing darts at the client's dental records.
As a part of the national HealthSource family, Doctor of Chiropractic Josh Stephens administers time-tested treatments to heal various chiropractic ailments. In private rooms outfitted with advanced technology, he and his staff work to alleviate neck stiffness, arthritis, and injuries from bending over backward for one’s boss. The center supplements its chiropractic work with massage treatments, progressive sports rehab, and nutritional consultations.
Since art appreciation often requires people to crane their necks to view paintings from a different angle, trips to a gallery don’t usually benefit the spine. But clients don’t come to Ambiente Gallerie just to explore art and its unique design. They come to improve their wellness and enjoy chiropractic care from Doctor of Chiropractic Kari Boudreau. She draws from 14 years of experience to help her clients find relief from nagging health conditions in a modern space designed to engage the mind.
Inside a 100-year-old warehouse space, Dr. Boudreau worked with accomplished architect Ali Heshmati to design a stimulating environment that serves as both an escape and gathering space. Walls of stretched fabric form private treatment areas and can be raised to reveal room to mingle for gallery shows or a new car for studio audiences. Curved boomerang doors bar the way to permanent massage rooms with a clouded material that adds to the practice's intriguing aesthetic.
Dr. Jill Hermen has a natural understanding of human strength and fitness from her background in martial arts and aerobics. With a long list of affiliations, she also carries with her a second-degree black belt and tae kwon do medals. With these in tow, she turns her attention to the spinal system and alignment, performing adjustments to render sports injuries inert or help with maladies such as asthma, allergies, or unexplained gummy-bear phobias. Through holistic care, she and her practice emphasize compassion and understanding to make new and returning patients feel that they are being heard and treatment individually.
