As a doctor of oriental medicine and board-certified acupuncture physician, Shawn Gelestor uses all-natural medical solutions to steer her patients toward good health. Tucked inside the Yoga4All wellness center, Shawn's office plays host to a variety of different therapeutic modalities. Her bread and butter is acupuncture, an ancient Chinese technique that re-balances bodies while banishing common ailments such as acid reflux, migraines, and boredom. When she's not overseeing acupuncture sessions, Shawn performs services that include Chinese herbology, homeopathy, and cupping, which creates a vacuum on targeted body parts to stimulate blood flow.
Armed with a wealth of past experience that includes a stint as a U.S. Army, former ER nurse, Addie Schaffer, RN now helps patients with their health issues without the use of drugs or surgery. Addie’s practice revolves around nutrition response testing. With the help of precise sensors, she assesses each patient’s wellness through careful scrutiny of the body’s involuntary movements, such as hormone regulation during a staring contest and blinking during a hormone regulation contest. From this information, Addie is able to identify the root causes of a person’s medical conditions, which often originate from one or a combination of five common stressors: scars, food sensitivities, immune challenges, chemical challenges, and metal challenges. She then concocts custom treatment plans using whole food supplements or herbal remedies to combat these underlying causes, mitigating ailments such as fatigue, chronic pain, and osteoporosis along the way.
An active healer since 1994, Doctor of Chiropractic Scott A. Rubin hasn’t slowed down since the day he graduated cum laude from Life Chiropractic College. He then went on to complete post-grad studies in kinesiology and acupuncture, earn certifications as a power-Pilates instructor and yoga instructor, and achieve a black belt in wado kai karate. All of these endeavors have added to Dr. Rubin’s holistic understanding of the human body and its wellness—an expansive knowledge that he brings to his practice at Rubin Health Center. There, he teams up with a nutritionist and licensed massage therapists to help clients reach their full wellness potential, rather than continue to live in the pain they’ve suffered since attempting to pogo stick down their staircase.
The experts personalize these plans by starting with a head-to-toe structural assessment for each patient. Depending on a client’s needs, habits, and complaints, the professionals then recommend treatments and therapies that range from chiropractic adjustments to active isolated stretching therapy. The center also focuses on time-tested healing techniques such as massages to ease stress and chronic pain, and acupuncture sessions to allay arthritis and anxiety. Yet the health gurus understand that prevention is key, and to that end augment their personal treatments with the yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and nutrition classes that take place in the center’s second-floor studio.

Acupuncture draws on the concept of qi, or the life force that flows through the body. It works by applying small, practically painless, single-use sterile filiform needles to specific acupuncture points on the meridians, which stimulate the qi flow to balance energy and overall wellness. Before your inner-body cleansing can be accomplished, a patient consultation is completed to determine individual ailments and create a comprehensive strategy for treatment. After your body’s yin and yang reunite, Eran Pupkin, AP, or Chris Flanagan, AP, will give one final assessment to determine whether any supplementary therapies are necessary, such as Chinese herbs, tui na (massage), cupping, moxibustion, or diet therapy.
