La Belle Laser & Plastic Surgery Center has been keeping up with the latest cosmetic-laser equipment since 1996. Today, the center is led by board-certified physician Tin L. Yung, MD, and board-certified plastic surgeon Eric Hu, MD, and has expanded its menu of services to include breast augmentations, plastic surgery, and beauty injections alongside its wide array of laser treatments for unwanted tattoos, scars, wrinkles, Kool-Aid stains, and body hair.
Licensed and board-certified oriental-medicine practitioner Shadye Peyvan considered the entire history of health care to select her profession and inform her practice at Green Wellness Acupuncture. She noticed that continuous study helped Western medicine become safe and effective, and that non-Western, holistic techniques had been similarly honed over several millennia, but had been overshadowed by modern technology's neon billboards. To revive them, she enrolled in South Baylo University, where she graduated with honors in oriental medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
The tranquil office balances intuitive health care with the scientific aspects of acupuncture, which the World Health Organization reports is a clinically proven therapy for more than two dozen ailments, including rheumatoid arthritis and hay fever. Preliminary consultations empower patients to help guide their care while developing trust, a necessity given that Peyvan specializes in reproductive, emotional, and neurological disorders. Tea service uses an age-old ritual to erase anxiety of visiting the doctor or encountering the Mad Hatter.
A certified clinical hypnotherapist, Diane Gordon treats a wide variety of symptoms and ailments during her powerful hypnotherapy treatments. Diane sees herself more as a guide than a therapist, working with her patients to discover the inner strength that lies within them.
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.
A passion and appreciation for wellness is the foundation of AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa. The staff seeks to nurture, restore, and beautify their clients through acupuncture, massage therapy, and spa treatments. During acupuncture, they insert fine needles into the body to restore balance and help the recipients heal from such ailments as depression, hypertension, allergies, and migraines. Along with acupuncture, the state-licensed practitioners use an array of Chinese medical treatments including acussage: a combination of acupuncture and massage. They also preform a cosmetic Chinese facial to promote circulation and reduce puffiness, fine lines, and the likelihood of sour-beer face.
At Dao Wellness Center, two bilingual licensed acupuncturists have devoted their lives to Chinese medicine—in one case, because Chinese medicine saved his life. Kenneth Hu's childhood was punctuated by frequent trips to the hospital for asthma attacks so severe that, according to his bio, doctors declared him "dangerously close to death" four times. Hu's parents eventually brought him to a Taiwanese herbalist and Chinese-medicine expert, who performed a combination of herbal medicine, acupuncture, and traditional therapies that eventually cured young Kenneth of his asthma. Spellbound by traditional Chinese medicine's healing power, Hu began to study it under the expert's seasoned tutelage and soon relocated to the United States to share his new gifts with others.
Today, Hu and Jason Geng offer everything from skin remedies to whole-body detoxification through their medical acupuncture treatments. To complement the treatments or heal on its own, the ancient tui na modality combines acupressure with medical strokes to clear energy blockages and boost holistic health. Clients can also take home herbal remedies formulated to bump up energy, flush away toxins, or season bland soups.
