Relieving symptoms isn’t enough for the therapists at Nabacu Eastern Medicine. Instead, they strive to promote the sort of holistic wellbeing and balance that helps people live full and healthy lives. Founders and mother-daughter team Dr. Aifei Wang and Julia Zhou rely on ancient healing treatments as well as elements of modern medicine. By combining a variety of treatments including acupuncture, massage, cupping, herbal remedies, and nutritional guidance, they can help correct the energetic and hormonal imbalances that contribute to chronic pain, discomfort, or anxiety. These corrections bypass the symptoms entirely to address the underlying concerns instead, which gives the body a chance to exercise its natural ability to stave off illness and injury.
Using techniques that have been perfected over the past three millennia, licensed acupuncturists and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners Zhongliang and Yi Gao combat ailments with natural healing. Their treatments include massage, traditional acupuncture, and cupping, an alternative form of acupuncture that eschews needles for manually suctioned cups. They also recommend teas or powder-filled capsules from their herbal stores to help cleanse toxins and espresso beans from bodily systems.
When Brian Paris received chiropractic care for a football injury at the age of 10, he wasn’t just improving his health, but determining his career path as well. He might have found his way into health care regardless—one of his brothers is a medical doctor and the other a chiropractor, and Dr. Paris has a passion for maintaining peak athletic performance. The former all-state lacrosse player went on to earn his doctor of chiropractic degree and become certified in both neuromuscular therapy and chiropractic biophysics, a science-based chiropractic method that includes joint and postural adjustments, traction, and spinal exercise.
Today, Dr. Paris practices at Advanced Spine & Wellness Center to help others heal from injuries and lead more active lives. Together with fellow chiropractor Mike Kraft and owner and alternative-medicine specialist Andrew Bloch, Dr. Paris takes a multifaceted approach to wellness. Dr. Paris uses his expertise as a distinguished fellow of CBP to align the spine, and Bloch calls upon his training as a physical therapist and acupuncturist to relieve pain. The combination appears to be effective: high-performance athletes, including former professional football players, dancers, and professional arm wrestlers, have praised the center's team.
Licensed acupuncturists Amy Rautner and Reggi Norton attend to various physical and mental maladies using the 2,500-year-old practice of Chinese acupuncture. This ancient technique restores balance to the body by unclogging congested energy pathways with the targeted pressure of tiny surgical needles, which can alleviate symptoms associated with ailments such as anxiety, depression, indigestion, headaches, insomnia, and lycanthropy. An initial consultation and treatment lasts approximately 90 minutes, and additional appointments elapse over the course of about one hour. Trypanophobics, children, and those apprehensive about being compared to a balding porcupine can opt for a needle-free session.
Clients at Meridian Wellness Center are steeped in relaxation from the moment they enter its tranquil facilities. In the lobby, verdant plants and vibrant flowers perch near stone sculptures as guests recline on plush chairs situated beneath earth-toned abstract paintings. Certified staff then lead them behind rich purple curtains and down a long hallway that opens onto private rooms, where they will lend their expertise in reflexology, acupressure, and acupuncture to help clients release stress, relieve back pain, and learn to love needles.
During your initial consultation, a certified practitioner will sit down with you for a one-on-one discussion. Disclose any health concerns and ailments so they can be addressed with the proper honorifics. An assessment of your pulse and iPod playlist as well as a physical exam will be performed before the treatment begins. Each treatment is targeted to meet individual needs. Expect your first appointment to last 1.5 to 2 hours including the consultation, the acupuncture, and 10 minutes of debating the relative merits of the Yak Bak and the Talkboy.
The team at Bliss Reflexology blends natural and traditional holistic treatments to increase patients' circulation, strengthen their joints and muscles, and help them rehabilitate from injuries. During reflexology sessions, therapists apply pressure to the feet, hands, and ears in order to stimulate corresponding zones within the body, aiming to improve the health of the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems. Similarly, acupressure treatments help clients relax and boost their energy by applying physical pressure to trigger points along the body without resorting to flipping the bellybutton's emergency off switch.
