Licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a Georgia native, Isa Holloway, who accrued expertise under the tutelage of Southwest Acupuncture College's Doctors of Oriental Medicine, facilitates full-body holistic healing with the strategic application of tiny needles during acupuncture treatments. Sessions aim to alleviate health woes—including allergies and sleep dysfunctions caused by recurring nightmares of cookie monsters under the bed—and additional pampering, such as topical herbs, hot tea, foot acupressure, and guided meditation, further encourage overall wellbeing. Alternatively, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, and patients have the option to pair sessions with microcurrent or light energies to further vivify faces.
With more than 20 years of chiropractic experience between them, Doctors Kevin and Gina Brown promote wellness and cultivate corporeal fortitude through a range of natural backbone-balancing treatments. During AquaMed dry hydrotherapy, clients remain fully clothed and control the massage, which deploys jets of water to soothe coarse dorsals without the awkwardness of donning inflatable water wings. First-time adjustees begin with a comprehensive examination of spinal and neurological health, as well as x-rays, to pinpoint potential trouble spots. After a consultation, trained spine sculptors then identify the appropriate adjustment technique to re-align wandering vertebrae, extinguish inflamed nerves, and straighten out burgeoning stegosaur plates.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
I relocated to Savannah last week from Gainesville, Florida.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I like for my clients to communicate any concerns or questions. I make them feel comfortable by playing relaxing music while they are resting on the massage table. I have a gentle touch, and a friendly personality. I understand their anxiety about needles because I used to feel the same way. I always ask whether they're ready for the first needle insertion, and to relax and take a deep breath.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Don't worry about not shaving your legs. Women are self-conscious about this, not a problem. I'm glad you're here. Don't worry about your legs.

Bauer Coslick, a licensed and board-certified acupuncturist and herbalist, has some rumors to dispel. He doesn’t wear flowing robes, and his office isn’t located on the top of a remote mountain under a Bodhi tree. He’s just a native Savannahian who discovered acupuncture when it helped him recover from a skiing accident, and his clinic is similar to a relaxed and comfortable doctor’s office, with soothing music and ambient lighting to promote tranquility. There, Coslick offers holistic health services and, if possible, reduces the number of supplements his patients takes by identifying unnecessary overlaps, negative side effects, and pill-reminder boxes filled with Smarties.
Coslick’s services have proved to be effective for several patients, including a woman diagnosed with fibromyalgia and thyroid disease. After unsuccessful results from traditional medicine, the woman came to Coslick. He designed a regimen of “acupuncture, some herbal remedies, and [nutrition plans],” Coslick remembers. “Now, she’s lost more weight than any of her coworkers that are doing Weight Watchers, and she’s got more energy. She doesn’t have any body pain anymore. It’s really pretty amazing.”
