While she was paying the bills by writing, producing, and casting Hollywood projects, Roxy Han, L.Ac., harbored a secret fascination with health. In her spare time, Han would research health-related topics, and when anyone on set had a headache, a cough, or a sniffling pet rock, she would draw from a well of wellness wisdom to dole out advice. Eventually this earned her a reputation as the unofficial doctor wherever she was, but she didn't switch careers just yet.
Then, at a jujitsu convention, Han reached forward to perform an advanced-level throw on a black-belt fighter. In one painful pop, her shoulder was out of commission. Fortunately, Han's sensei was an acupuncturist, and the skills he demonstrated throughout the following week lessened her injury’s impact. Galvanized by this personal experience, Han trained with master acupuncturists, graduated from her program with honors, and became a professional needle master. Now, with the help of Doctors of Chiropractic Mary Ensign and Rick Fox, skilled acupuncturist Sandy Lee – a former classmate of Han's who specializes in pain relief and psycho-emotional issues – and a team of licensed massage therapists, she holistically treats a range of bodily symptoms.
Licensed acupuncturist and herbologist Gina Haber treats hormonal imbalances, depression, pregnancy pains, allergies, and other bodily woes with traditional Chinese techniques and healing practices. During a thorough consultation, the needle-wielding practitioner completes a comprehensive medical-history evaluation and a traditional pulse diagnosis of the body's 12 energy channels before determining a diagnosis and potential treatment plan. Next, tension, pains, and hors d'oeuvres are gently skewered and whisked away by individually packaged and sterilized needles during the 30-minute acupuncture session. Finally, nimble digits explore and deconstruct knots and tension like a Boy Scout literature professor.
