Cobb Acupuncture Healthcare Center, located on the Emory-Adventist Hospital Campus in Smyrna, operates under the leadership of licensed acupuncturist Esther Kim, who takes a holistic approach to wellness. She believes that the only way to help clients heal is to treat the root of the problem and not just the symptoms, and works to find alternative healing solutions to surgery, aggressive drugs, and embarrassing boo-boo kisses from your mother. Esther specializes in chronic pain, neuropathy, and infertility issues, and recommends Chinese herbal medicines and specific acupuncture treatments during individual consultations with patients. Clients' journey toward wellness might also include cupping or moxibustion treatments, which can help alleviate anything from mirgraines to the effects from chemo-radiation.
Whether patients have been in a car accident or have slipped on a banana peel again, they can turn to Peachtree Rehab for myriad pain-management services. The center's chiropractors and massage therapists treat lower-back pain and tense muscles with spinal adjustments and bodywork sessions and have a robust arsenal of other treatments handy for most kinds of physical pain. For anyone with more serious injuries, physical-therapy sessions are also available to help them regain mobility. And, because the staff at Peachtree wants patients to eventually regain fighting shape, they offer various physiotherapeutic modalities, including cryotherapy, electric muscle stimulation, and ultrasound technology.
As is the case with many great advancements, sheer luck led to the discovery of salt caves? therapeutic effects. In 1843, a Polish doctor realized that salt miners worked day in and day out without contracting the lung diseases so common to other types of miners and fire breathers. But his findings didn?t make much of an impact until the 1980s, when an early version of the artificial salt cave emerged specifically to treat maladies.
Today, at Salt Therapy of Georgia, visitors experience the effects of salt-cave therapy, also known as halotherapy, in rooms saturated with Dead Sea and Himalayan salt. The trick is teensy salt ions scattered in the air, which can seep into even the narrowest of airways. When they do, they fight inflammation, potentially easing respiratory ailments such as asthma, congestion, and even a common sore throat. And when salt hits skin, it starts alleviating acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other complexion-oriented problems.
So they can fully enjoy the holistic, drug-free method of relaxation, guests at Salt Therapy of Georgia are divided into two rooms, one for adults and one for kids and their adult guardian. The adult room sports loungers, soft lighting, and soothing music, and the kids? room keeps youngsters busy with quiet activities.

Of course, the stylists also perform cut and color, as well as relaxers and protein-based reconstructive treatments.
