In a spacious facility, Back4more’s staff helps clients ease back pain with its four-step program. BackFlex traction tables heat backs via far infrared rays while massaging acupressure points to relieve tightness in the lower back and shoulders, and doses of alkaline water help to balance pH levels. Clients not only receive treatment at Back4more but can also get physical in preventative back-care yoga classes. In a studio with natural-light illuminated hardwood floors, instructors guide students through Pa Kua yoga classes, which can boost energy, harmonize body and mind, and relieve stress. Before leaving the all-inclusive facility, clients can order from an array of home comfort products, including Inada chairs and mattresses. In addition to English, the bilingual staff also speaks Spanish.
More than a thousand years have passed since healers learned that illnesses could be cured through stimulation of certain body parts. A wide array of frameworks developed for how best that healing should be brought about. Licensed acupuncturist Winston Wang has taken components of these frameworks to craft his own: understand the patient's condition, set up a treatment plan, and test it. At Orange Acupuncture, clients can seek Winston's techniques to treat maladies ranging from depression and insomnia to seasonal allergies.
