Adam Roberts first delved into traditional Chinese medicine as a means of helping his wife cope with the symptoms of an idiopathic blood disorder. He discovered a true passion for helping people and, as he puts it, “a better way to get better.” Today, he employs those techniques in relaxation and aromatherapy treatments at Herbal Health & Wellness. Seeking out clusters of nerves and energy in the body, he works to remove tension using pleasant-smelling essential oils and strategically applied pressure.

The needling sessions at Affinity Acupuncture take place in both private and group “community” settings, each with their own healing benefits. Behind the doors of private treatment rooms, soothing one-on-one sessions offer a greater range of points for treatment. Communal sessions, on the other hand, draw upon the healing energy of the room, as many clients relax in comfortable chairs together, admiring each other’s chi. The practitioners here also offer massages, cupping, and herbal remedies.
Lilac Healing Center is staffed by a diverse group of trained therapists who improve their clients’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Founded by licensed massage therapist Kathryn McDaniel, Lilac Healing Center slowly grew out of a series of other businesses—what began simply in 2002 as a place where people went to get a massage became a destination for all kinds of healing services. Today, the staffers not only perform bodywork and therapeutic yodeling, but they also provide acupuncture, energy work, and custom vitamin programs. In addition, the center hosts a multitude of both private and group yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes.
