While she was paying the bills by writing, producing, and casting Hollywood projects, Roxy Han, L.Ac., harbored a secret fascination with health. In her spare time, Han would research health-related topics, and when anyone on set had a headache, a cough, or a sniffling pet rock, she would draw from a well of wellness wisdom to dole out advice. Eventually this earned her a reputation as the unofficial doctor wherever she was, but she didn't switch careers just yet.

Then, at a jujitsu convention, Han reached forward to perform an advanced-level throw on a black-belt fighter. In one painful pop, her shoulder was out of commission. Fortunately, Han's sensei was an acupuncturist, and the skills he demonstrated throughout the following week lessened her injury?s impact. Galvanized by this personal experience, Han trained with master acupuncturists, graduated from her program with honors, and became a professional needle master. Now, with the help of Doctors of Chiropractic Mary Ensign and Rick Fox, skilled acupuncturist Sandy Lee ? a former classmate of Han's who specializes in pain relief and psycho-emotional issues ? and a team of licensed massage therapists, she holistically treats a range of bodily symptoms.

Every time David Kuo got hurt playing sports as a child, his mother did what most mothers would do?she gave him tender affection and a couple of painkillers. And most of the time, he'd accept the love but toss out the pills. Growing up, David always felt there had to be another way of bolstering health and recovering from injuries aside from conventional medicine. Inspired by this notion, he went on to attain a BS in sports medicine from Pepperdine University before earning a doctorate of chiropractic from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1994.

Since then, Dr. Kuo?the owner of HealthSource of Pasadena?has helped patients to feel and stay healthy with treatments he says are focused on "supporting the body's own innate intelligence to heal itself." Blending his experiences as an exercise physiologist and sports-medicine specialist with his chiropractic training, he's treated an array of conditions ranging from lingering backaches to chronic bed-wetting to vision-impairing astigmatisms. Dr. Kuo often says to people, "I've gotten three women pregnant," jokingly referring to the female patients who've come to him for treatment because of difficulties conceiving or an immobilizing fear of storks.

Opened in 2007, HealthSource of Pasadena's 1,300-square-foot facility houses three treatment rooms, one massage room, and one rehabilitation area. Dr. Kuo emphasizes patient education by decorating the office with information-laden items, including anatomical posters that the licensed massage therapists use to show patients how the hipbone's connected to the knee bone.

Licensed acupuncturist and herbologist Gina Haber treats hormonal imbalances, depression, pregnancy pains, allergies, and other bodily woes with traditional Chinese techniques and healing practices. During a thorough consultation, the needle-wielding practitioner completes a comprehensive medical-history evaluation and a traditional pulse diagnosis of the body's 12 energy channels before determining a diagnosis and potential treatment plan. Next, tension, pains, and hors d'oeuvres are gently skewered and whisked away by individually packaged and sterilized needles during the 30-minute acupuncture session. Finally, nimble digits explore and deconstruct knots and tension like a Boy Scout literature professor.
