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.
The body is a beautiful structure, and as a licensed massage therapist, Ronald Bruinius views himself as a humble tool to keep it running smoothly. In the comfort of a private room, Ronnie can coax away aches with flowing Swedish strokes or call on firm deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer muscles, or "fascia." Clients can also induce relaxation with prenatal bodywork, trigger-point therapy, or the foam-finger kneading of a sports massage.
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.
