Certified holistic-health coach Elizabeth Rocchino has been trained in more than 100 dietary theories. For her, that's still small beans—she believes that nutrition plans should be customized for individuals, with less rigid rules and more flexibility as to what they can eat. Her approach isn't limited to food, either. On her integrative-nutrition plate, factors such as relationships, career, and exercise border balanced portions of fruits, veggies, and proteins. She examines all of these facets when guiding clients toward weight loss and wellness goals. In addition to personal coaching, she also leads corporate programs, cooking demos, and onsite kitchen makeovers, which leave pantries both organized and wholesome.
Acupuncture served as the main healthcare treatment for thousands of years, and it is still the go-to therapy for millions of people worldwide. Acupuncture physician Richard Browne is at the forefront of this field as both a practitioner and an educator.
Browne is the cofounder and president of Acupuncture and Massage College, which has been a community staple for more than 30 years. When not teaching budding acupuncturists how to strategically place needles or deflate sinister-looking balloon animals, he can be found at Affordable Acupuncture Clinic, practicing acupuncture himself or overseeing his interns while they practice it.
Browne and his staff also offer services ranging from cupping therapy to shiatsu massage to Reiki. They work to relieve such ailments as back pain, headaches, and insomnia.
Led by a chiropractor with more than a decade of experience, Bailey Chiropractic?s staff of technicians and massage therapists helps patients maintain a healthy body free from chronic pain. Along with spinal adjustments?designed to correct subluxations, or nerve-blocking misalignments of the vertebrae?patients come in for spinal decompression, a surgery-free back therapy that can treat issues ranging from herniated discs to osteoarthritis. Chiropractic services focus on the spine, and therapeutic massages and specialized exercises seek to counteract muscular imbalances that can cause tension and lower a person?s maximum high-five elevation. To help clients in their quests for a pain-free existence, Bailey Chiropractic?s facility features a slew of state-of-the-art equipment, including a digital x-ray machine, electrical-stimulation devices, and Triton DTS decompression tables.
Inspired by her own physical rehabilitation due to chiropractic care, board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Kimberly Joseph-Alvarez of Complete Chiropractic Health Center strives to better her patients’ well-being with personalized plans that treat bodily imbalances. In tandem with x-rays that reveal disorganized vertebrae, a chiropractic exam spells out potential causes of painful symptoms and viable noninvasive methods to repair bodies without voiding their warranty. Careful adjustments target asymmetrical sections of the anatomy with controlled pressure that returns the spine to a normal, harmonious position. Using soft-tissue manipulation, the one-hour massage targets muscles, tendons, and ligaments to shoo away loitering stress from the doorstep of relaxation.
Inspired by the many forms of Eastern spirituality, Uma Sarasvati strives to create an oasis of calm in her clients' otherwise busy lives. During private sessions, corporate workshops, and drop-in classes, she weaves together three disciplines—reiki, yoga, and mediation—to help promote healing and rejuvenation. By helping to quiet and focus the mind, meditation sessions can help boost creativity and lower stress levels. Yoga—which Uma has taught professionally since 2008—helps restore balance, increase flexibility, and promote longevity. And reiki treatments aim to rebalance life force in the body through energy transfer and a laying-on of hands. All of Uma's services are intended to foster a deep sense of health and well-being that her clients can carry back with them to everyday life.
Stretch Zone mixes up humdrum fitness regimes with a new type of workout, one that can enhance physical performance, muscle symmetry, and flexibility. It consists of table stretching—but not the kind that you're probably familiar with. By working with the autonomic nervous system, Stretch Zone practitioners take muscle extension to a whole new level. Atop their specially designed tables, comfortable straps systematically position, stabilize, and isolate the parts of the body that are not being stretched. This allows the stretched muscle—and the person on the table—to completely relax, extending further than the central nervous system would normally permit. Besides helping rejuvenate and invigorate the whole body, the sessions can also alleviate rheumatic pain for everyone from seniors to adults.
