When Jessica's brother developed Ogilvie syndrome, a severe intestinal disorder, doctors could do little to help. Jessica and her family found that only colon hydrotherapy?a session that flushes the large intestine with warm, filtered water?helped to manage her sibling's symptoms. Remembering their struggle to find a provider in the Tulsa area, Jessica jumped at the chance to become the founding manager of operations at the Colon Care Center of Oklahoma, a hydrotherapy facility that flung open its doors in early 2012. Today, its staff of colon hydrotherapists?all certified by the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy and some possessing more than 30 years of experience?work to soothe symptoms such as bloating, constipation, and compaction in clients with difficulties similar to Jessica's brother's. The therapists take continuing-education classes to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date. They pass along this knowledge to their patients, and encourage those with questions to contact the center for more information or to check out the FAQ.
During sessions, therapists may assist by monitoring pressure and temperature or leave the room to let the patient manipulate a gravity-fed open system as fans draw away odor. Colon Care Center of Oklahoma recommends hydrotherapy to patients interested in undergoing preventative colon care or reducing bodily toxins. The session may also help those about to undergo a colonoscopy who don't respond well to traditional medical cleansing methods such as eating hamburgers stuffed with pipe cleaners.
No one knows the pain of never enjoying a panoramic view like someone with a spinal misalignment. The doctors at Brooks Spinal Care save clients from immobility and pain with adjustments and massages that allow them to enjoy the office's panoramic view of Tulsa from 34 stories up. Dr. Robert Brooks and Dr. Scott Hanson work in tandem to provide new clients with complimentary consultations and a full spinal x-ray to help identify misalignments and why clients can't sleep comfortably in their refrigerators. Their reception staff adds luxury to appointments by refreshing waiting clients with all-natural juices and teas.
A staff of male and female massage therapists, headed by Alicia Fleming, distinguishes between spinal problems and areas of tension to eradicate muscle pain with heated stones and traditional touch. The massage room could be more aptly called a suite; Fleming says it's the size of a master bedroom with windows overlooking the city, ambient lighting, and soft music.
Licensed and certified acupuncturist Chris M. Ohman combines his specialty with a range of complementary procedures that together coax discomfort out of his patients’ bodies. During consultations, he pores over medical histories, chats with patients, and answers any questions about acupuncture and whether or not he considers his current lab coat his lucky one. Through the careful placement of very fine needles at key points on the body’s energy pathways, the practitioner works to address such maladies as insomnia, allergies, pain, and stress. Should he deem it necessary, he couples the acupuncture service with the complementary services of far-infrared heat and moxibustion, a treatment based on the belief that mugwort has soothing powers.
At BodyBalance Techniques, the staffers view themselves as mechanics who jump-start the body's self-healing mechanisms. Instead of using jumper cables hooked up to a magical Ford Mustang, though, they rely on acupuncture treatments, nutrition therapy, and homeopathic remedies. For arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and chronic aches and pains, BodyBalance's team may recommend deep-tissue muscle-balancing sessions.
Doctor of Chiropractic Doug Pray believes in healing the whole person?rather than one aspect of pain?to better his patients? lives. He combines hands-on chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, and natural vitamins and mineral supplements to combat chronic pain and aid recovery from injuries. In addition to facilitating in-person wellness, Dr. Pray is also an accomplished author of two weight-loss books.
