Today, Melissa Toyoshima is a board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist. There was a time, however, during her undergraduate education, when Melissa suffered from chronic pain and endocrine disorders. When Western medicine failed to give her answers, Melissa turned to nutrition, herbs, and acupuncture to heal herself. That experience drove her to advance her studies in traditional Chinese medicine in order to help others suffering from pain. And because of her past experiences, Melissa is able to easily relate to her clients. At Wise Acupuncture, she uses a multidisciplinary approach—education, diet, and lifestyle—to treat a variety of conditions.
Licensed acupuncturist Julia Wu follows the ancient healing methods of Chinese medicine at Simple Health Acupuncture, seeking out the roots of the medical issue at hand and addressing it with natural means. She tailors her treatments to fit the needs of each patient, concocting a restorative recipe from services such as acupuncture, acupressure, and tui-na massage. Her treatments work to not only relieve pain and heal physical ailments, but also to promote improvements in energy and productivity. For example, her work may help a writer overcome a cramp in both his hand and his writing process as he works to complete the biography of his cat.
At Cheta Chiropractic & Day Spa, staffers with at least 10 years of experience each pair holistic pampering with the benefits of chiropractic treatment. Their menu tackles beauty standbys such as nail, facial, massage, and waxing services, but veers into territory often untapped by spas with treatments inspired by ancient healing techniques. Therapists ensnare tranquility better than an aromatherapy oil miner with cupping, a Chinese method wherein jars of bamboo or glass safely suction to backs via the heat of ignited contents. Meanwhile, patrons tip in teeters during inversion therapy, a technique that harnesses gravity to realign spines and ease muscles and nerve pressure.
Serenity pours from every corner of the space, which flaunts a scarlet waiting area with cushioned wicker chairs and bright lighting. As a tribute to the mythical Emery Board Forest, the silhouette of a barren tree backs the pedicure room's plush black chairs, and an ornate chandelier sheds light on nearby doting.
From professional athletes to months-old babies, the chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists at All Pro Health Center use their expertise to maximize wellness and body function. The center is the official sports-medicine and health-care center for both the California Quake women's tackle-football team and the Pacific Warriors women's professional football organization, and resident Doctor of Chiropractic Charles Feng has an extensive background in sports medicine. After training at UCLA as a member of the Bruins' sports-medicine program, Dr. Feng served on the medical teams of both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Kansas City Chiefs. His voice may sound familiar from the local radio shows in which he discusses developments in the field of sports medicine, such as solar-powered athletic benches that warm themselves.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and needle-free acupuncture, Dr. Feng and his colleagues treat sports injuries or everyday ailments with a range of manual and high-tech therapies. A certified practitioner performs active-release techniques, a patented soft tissue-based massage system that alleviates pain emanating from overused muscles. The crew also offers relief via physical therapy, kinesiotaping, and cold-laser therapy.
