The certified acupuncturists at Leamington TCM Center aim to cultivate healthier bodies and more youthful appearances through traditional Chinese techniques and herbs augmented by Western technology. With a complementary combination of technology and tradition, an AcuGraph evaluates energy channels before an acupuncturist guides painless needles in accordance with the results, helping to address a range of ailments, from headaches to digestive difficulties. The skilled staff also performs cosmetic acupuncture, which stimulates collagen in the dermal layer, helping skin get reacquainted with its youthful appearance without the need for harsh chemicals or pacifiers.
Devoted to spreading the word of Chinese traditional medicine and techniques, the Center’s helpful website hosts an herb index, which allows visitors to track down herbs that may be helpful for specific conditions, from Alzheimer’s to cold and flu.
With a bucket of pins and a master’s in acupuncture, Laura Parks revives health while instilling qi with maximal dexterousness. Sufferers of a broad array of conditions, from chronic fatigue to anxiety, may enjoy the needle's relieving effects, which aim to not just blot out symptoms, but to bring the entire body back to holistic wellness. The tiny pins are a small fraction of the size of typical hypodermic needles, so a slight pinch is typically the most that is felt during the one-hour sessions.

After a motorcycle accident left his 16-year-old body injured and in pain, Douglas Schwan faced a choice that would end up defining his future. Rather than having steel rods surgically implanted in his back, he paid his first visit to a chiropractor, whose integrated, noninvasive methods left an impression on his career path as well as his body.
Fast-forward to the present day: after three decades as a chiropractor, Dr. Schwan continues to distinguish himself through publications and his daily work at Schwan Chiropractic & Acupuncture. He approaches each patient’s condition with a philosophy of integrated wellness, drawing on acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine as well as chiropractic adjustments. He often blends these techniques to ease complaints such as chronic pain and stress from working long hours in the office or as a human bridge.
In line with his holistic philosophy, Dr. Schwan sometimes employs acupuncture to help patients to lose weight, quit smoking, and fight fine lines and wrinkles with both needle and needle-free acupuncture. Face-lift acupuncture treatments stimulate acupuncture points with rubber electrodes, smoothing out complexions without the risk of surgery or the embarrassingly high-pitched voice associated with helium injections. Dr. Schwan’s embrace of modern technology extends to computerized acupuncture, which digitally charts meridians to determine the exact locations of physical ailments.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Dumas has been keeping his patients' spines in tiptop shape for more than 25 years. Tapping into his board certifications in acupuncture, sacral-occipital technique, and cranial procedures, he calls on multiple disciplines to delve into the root causes of pain and illness. During initial appointments, he conducts any necessary x-rays, MRIs, and laboratory analyses to examine your posture, palpation, and muscles. With test results and a patient history in hand, Dr. Dumas eases misalignments through chiropractic treatments ranging from spinal and organ manipulation to orthotics, therapeutic exercise, and laser therapy. He also prescribes acupuncture treatments to correct flow in the body's 12 energy pathways, or meridians, as well as the unlucky 13th meridian that only runs under ladders.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." These words, said by Thomas Edison in 1902, serve as the mission statement for the holistic health-care providers at Edison Health & Wellness. Because health is multifaceted, their treatments are as well, combining acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and nutritional changes to treat issues such as back pain, an addiction to cigarettes, or headaches caused by unsolvable math problems. The practice's doctor can also administer acupressure, delivering the benefits of acupuncture without the use of needles.
People from 40 states and 12 countries have come to Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center for treatment. Though the holistic facility offers a range of traditional and alternative medical services, more than 8,000 patients from across the globe have arrived at its door with the specific goal of experiencing the Tenpenny Sensitivity Reduction Technique—T-SRT—an anti-allergy methodology developed by founder Sherri Tenpenny, DO, in 1997. The technique combines three complementary practices—kinesiology, homeopathy, and acupressure—to evaluate and redirect bodily energy. The treatment requires patients to be in contact with the allergen while the practitioner activates a series of acupressure points on the spine, arms, and legs, and it can provide relief from common irritants such as ragweed, food allergens, and infomercials.
The caring, multidisciplinary staff also provides nonpharmaceutical solutions to family health issues. Pediatrician and homeopathic physician Janet Levatin, MD, keeps kids healthy, and Doctor of Chiropractic Matt Grant helps patients manage their chronic pain. Licensed acupuncturist Linda Corlett treats issues from insomnia to weight gain with traditional and needle-free treatments, and holistic gynecologist Dr. Cindy Fraed keeps women healthy with infusions of bio-identical hormones. The center also features breast thermography, a radiation-free detection system that can identify areas of concern up seven years before the abnormality could be detected by traditional mammography.
