At Adjustments & Acupuncture, Doctor of Chiropractic Deb Hirabai uses more than 14 years of acupuncture experience to guide her patients toward active lifestyles. A recipient of such treatments herself, Dr. Hirabai zeroes in on everyday disorders while drawing on methods such as spinal corrections, applied kinesiology, and traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal formulas. Most treatments begin with a comprehensive exam, which allows her to map out a personalized solution for each patient rather than relying on a cloth map of Middle Earth.

She also helps skin look younger and smoother with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
