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.
Licensed acupuncturists, a chiropractor, an energy and nutrition specialist, and a cosmetologist make up the team at Origin Natural Care. Together, this holistic crew helps patients find relief from acute and chronic ailments with therapies that restore balance to the body and drive away toxins. To do this they rely not only on acupuncture needles and traditional spinal adjustments, but also on biothermal stones and gadgets that test the wellness and tire pressure of the meridians.
The licensed acupuncturists of Balance and Harmony Acupuncture blend experience with Eastern and Western medicine as they help their patients toward healthy lives. They strive to return internal energies within the body to proper balance, using services such as acupuncture, moxibustion, and herbal medicine. They use their assortment of alternative medicines in the treatment of maladies such as allergies, addictions, or arthritis.
Licensed and board-certified oriental-medicine practitioner Shadye Peyvan considered the entire history of health care to select her profession and inform her practice at Green Wellness Acupuncture. She noticed that continuous study helped Western medicine become safe and effective, and that non-Western, holistic techniques had been similarly honed over several millennia, but had been overshadowed by modern technology's neon billboards. To revive them, she enrolled in South Baylo University, where she graduated with honors in oriental medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
The tranquil office balances intuitive health care with the scientific aspects of acupuncture, which the World Health Organization reports is a clinically proven therapy for more than two dozen ailments, including rheumatoid arthritis and hay fever. Preliminary consultations empower patients to help guide their care while developing trust, a necessity given that Peyvan specializes in reproductive, emotional, and neurological disorders. Tea service uses an age-old ritual to erase anxiety of visiting the doctor or encountering the Mad Hatter.
A passion and appreciation for wellness is the foundation of AcuSpa Wellness Center & Spa. The staff seeks to nurture, restore, and beautify their clients through acupuncture, massage therapy, and spa treatments. During acupuncture, they insert fine needles into the body to restore balance and help the recipients heal from such ailments as depression, hypertension, allergies, and migraines. Along with acupuncture, the state-licensed practitioners use an array of Chinese medical treatments including acussage: a combination of acupuncture and massage. They also preform a cosmetic Chinese facial to promote circulation and reduce puffiness, fine lines, and the likelihood of sour-beer face.
