One of Dr. Len Siskin’s first experiences in medicine was as a social worker in a hospital, where he was struck by how patients were forced to fight their way through a labyrinth of hospital administrators, attorneys, and pharmaceutical companies instead of just being able to focus on getting well. This experience—coupled with his desire to treat and prevent disease with minimal medication—led him to attend Life University Chiropractic School. Today, Dr. Siskin helps pained patients to resume the activities they enjoy through an array of adjusting techniques, such as the Thompson technique, which employs a terminal-point table to adjust the entire spine.
Additionally, Dr. Siskin helps spines to assume more competent relationships with gravity through the clinical biomechanics of good posture and sleeping on piles of physics homework.
As founder and clinical director of Acupuncture Health Associates, Dr. Andy Rosenfarb leads a licensed, pain-punishing team of acupuncturists that helps patients overcome an array of troubling conditions. Fifteen years of acupuncture experience guide the doctor's sure hands as he inserts thin needles at key points on the body's energy meridians, dislodging blockages that disrupt the flow of qi, or energy, to vital organs. When energy flows freely, the body maintains a balanced state of wellness and allows the individual to lead an active lifestyle, with less time spent hobbled by health concerns and more time spent winning freestyle rap battles. Acupuncture has been shown to treat a wide range of conditions—Dr. Rosenfarb specializes in care for degenerative eye conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma, and coworker and licensed acupuncturist Vanessa M. Guinet specializes in women's health and reproductive issues.
Dr. Eric Waldorf and his team at Waldorf Chiropractic Center take a “whole-person” approach to wellness, performing a variety of chiropractic and complementary treatments while offering lifestyle advice to guide clients toward good health. As a police surgeon for Amtrak, a licensed chiropractor, and a certified chiropractic sports physician, Dr. Waldorf brings a wealth of knowledge to bear on chiropractic visits, which seek out the root causes of chronic pain. He also remedies ailments with spinal adjustments, physical therapy, or massage. Therapist Shara Smith blends Swedish, shiatsu, and neuromuscular massage techniques during kneading sessions tailored to each client’s condition.
Drs. John Marullo and Ryan Varga work to eliminate pain and the need for surgery with their holistic healing services. They treat myriad aches and chronic pain with manual chiropractic adjustments, physical-therapy exercises, and counseling for weight and stress issues. The clinic also treats clients to acupuncture sessions and outfits them with orthotics.
Peony Wellness and Healing Center combines the best of Eastern and Western medical treatments to promote wellbeing. Each practitioner calls on at least three years of experience when restoring the body’s flow of energy, be it through precisely placed acupuncture needles or tuina—a form of massage therapy that helps improve circulation and eliminate toxins. In addition to these Eastern-influenced treatments, therapists call on classic deep-tissue or Swedish massages to abolish stress.
Dr. Joe Mazzeo knows that many clients come to the chiropractor when they are in pain—neck aches, back pain, or headaches, typically—but it can also be a preventative measure to stave off future discomfort. At Active Care Wellness Center, he prescribes treatments including corrective exercises to strengthen connective tissue and nutritional counseling to convince patients that swallowing bricks won’t fortify the backbone.
