Within its environmentally sustainable facility, the staff at Ageless Mi MedSpa combines traditional and naturopathic spa treatments with clinical services often found at doctors’ offices. Plush furniture, plants, and terracotta-tiled floors surrounded by warm, red walls foster a soothing environment for clients, who oust stress via acupuncture, exfoliate skin with microdermabrasions, or plan to shed pounds on the clinic’s weight-loss program.
Millennia-old treatment modalities and modern technological advancements each have their place at Great Wall Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Drs. Qingsong Xiao and Vance Inouye?who hold a PhD in traditional Chinese medicine and a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, respectively?promote patients' well-being with holistic treatments that alleviate painful symptoms while supporting the human body's ability to heal itself naturally over time. To find the root causes of these symptoms, the practitioners employ a variety of noninvasive diagnostic techniques. Approaches include applying gentle pressure to key trigger points to locate sources of withheld tension and analyzing the pulse's strength, pattern, and ability to communicate in Morse code.
From there, it's up to the staff to recommend a treatment regimen specially tailored to address each client's needs. These regimens can incorporate traditional methods, such as acupuncture, tui na bodywork's combination of gentle massage and acupressure, and mixtures of Chinese herbs intended to restore a sense of balance throughout the body's systems. Additionally, technologies such as low-level-laser energy and infrared-light therapy can help alleviate chronic pain, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation throughout the treated area.

Above & Beyond Acupuncture's practitioners find the root cause of health problems, alleviate pain, and improve overall wellness with five holistic health modalities. Acupuncture sessions rely on hair-thin needles to ease not only physical pain, but also emotional pain, such as depression and anxiety. Cupping therapy, which is used both alone and in conjunction with treatments such as acupuncture, also assuages pain, as well as helps detoxify the body. Herbal remedies often supplement acupuncture and cupping sessions in order to further help the body heal .
Once pain is alleviated, Above & Beyond's practitioners rely on nutritional guidance and lifestyle coaching to enhance total wellness. During these sessions, the holistic health experts may instruct clients to avoid dairy, to write down life goals, and to keep a food diary about which root vegetables are the cutest.
Licensed acupuncturist Mukhtar Ramsey has explored the breadth and depth of traditional Chinese medicine, earning a Masters in Science of Oriental Medicine and certification in Chinese herbalism along the way. He studied this specialty after enduring his own battle with severe allergies and chronic pain and believes the only thing that helped him heal from a life of pain was acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
With this knowledge under his belt, Ramsey works to help others overcome their pain through his clinic, Zen Medicinals. As part of this practice, he runs acupuncture sessions, herbal and nutritional consultations, and Asyra pro therapy. During acupuncture sessions, thin stainless-steel needles reach deep-seated energy points in the body to clear a pathway for Qi to flow and establish lasting health. Additionally, Ramsey's herbal consultations help people determine which nutrients they need to keep their body strong.
