Chiropractor Dr. Jenny (Dr. Jennifer Schrage) sought out her professional license after experiencing personal issues with pain that, while resistant to other treatment, resolved themselves handily when the doc tried chiropractic adjustment. To share that relief with others, Dr. Jenny helms a dedicated team at Schrage Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Massage as they help keep patients of any age healthy and happy with a suite of holistic healing services. Dr. Jenny creates a customized treatment plan for each patient to tackle chronic pains and aches by eliminating the symptoms and treating the underlying ailments. Inside the center’s private treatment rooms, including a cheetah-print kids' room, massage therapists practice their healing art in increments of 30, 60, and 90 minutes. The doc performs acupuncture treatments to release blocked chi by sticking fine needles along the body. During chiropractic services, Dr. Jenny's team wield an activator or impulse-adjusting device, both designed to deliver a set force of thrust that pops pockets of air stuck between the vertebrae or balloons floating around the rib cage.
Dr. Nick Crom's interest in chiropractic medicine began in college, when a quick series of visits to a chiropractor relieved him of chronic nausea that had eluded the testing and prescription drugs of his doctors. Now, motivated by the effects the gentle spinal adjustments had on his own health, Dr. Crom helps alleviate patients' ailments with holistic approaches.
Rather than prescribing drugs to mask a disease's symptoms, Dr. Crom adjusts the spine in a way intended to stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities. Acupuncture, massage therapy, and detox treatments, meanwhile, help to further unlock internal recuperative powers, which can be encumbered by the toxins that accumulate during daily life or attempts to eat top-secret Etch-a-Sketch drawings. His clinic also helps clients shed excess pounds via Lipo-Light treatments, which unleash toxins lodged deep into bodies without needles, pain, or down time.
Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
