Accented by warm lights and soothing music, Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC relaxes minds and muscles with three types of massage and therapeutic foot-reflexology sessions. Each client partners with a licensed massage therapist to customize the session, choosing Swedish, deep-tissue, or neuromuscular techniques to unwind knots and alarm clocks lodged between the shoulder blades. Tension and pain are relieved during reflexology and neuromuscular treatments, in which the therapist applies pressure to specific areas to produce sensations in other parts of the body. Deep-tissue sessions release tension, and the long, flowing strokes and focused kneading of the Swedish modality inspire envy in Olympic swimmers and bakers easily distracted by shiny cake pans.

An NCCAOM-certified practitioner of acupuncture, Henry Park brings almost 20 years of holistic experience to his practice's two offices. With a master's degree in Oriental medicine, Park employs herbal therapy, nutritional therapy, and acupuncture treatments to address a sprawling array of symptoms. He specializes in using acupuncture as a facial-rejuvenation technique, turning back the cosmetic clock by inserting tiny needles into visages to promote circulation and help clients blend in with the kids at heavy-metal concerts. Each treatment he performs, be it for medical or cosmetic purposes, is tailored to the patient's needs.
Doctorate of Chiropractic Gene Clerkin and Li Jiang, an acupuncturist, herbologist, and doctor of Chinese medicine, helm the Center For Holistic Health. Here, they employ alternative medicine to alleviate pain and its causes, whether that's stress or an injury resulting from athletic endeavors, everyday overuse, or filling in for a crash-test dummy. To holistically treat clients, the two may incorporate acupuncture, nutrition-response testing, or detoxifying treatments. Their common goal, however, is to avoid medications and surgery while restoring a sense of balance to patients' bodies, which can jump-start the body's innate ability to heal itself.
Growing up in Kenya, Akinyi Osano experienced a variety of healing techniques. Her mother used traditional medicine to cure basic ailments, and her father shepherded the family to a western-trained doctor whenever sickness hit. Years later, she learned that the traditional medicine of her people in West Kenya was very similar to traditional Chinese medicine. She was intrigued, and began to educate herself more on alternative healing techniques that bypassed the need for drugs or invasive procedures.
Today, Akinyi is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and licensed acupuncturist with certifications in Chinese nutrition, homeopathy, and a number of other modalities. At Acupuncture Herbs Clinic, she gently treats patients' fertility issues and chronic pain using hair-thin acupuncture needles. To help patients combat pain even further, Akinyi may also integrate cupping treatments, herbal medicine, or body suits constructed out of bubble wrap into treatment plans.
