"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.
