Inaccessible to the hands, back musculature often falls prey to freeloading "kick me" signs and hitchhiking parrots. Liberate a beleaguered back with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-hour Swedish massage at Integrative Hospital Associates in Davie (a $90 value).
Scott Denny and his certified associates promote wellness with a worldly program that integrates eastern and western medical philosophies into an array of holistic treatments. Emphasizing relationship-centered care, the uniquely integrative approach adopts Swedish massage's long and flowing strokes but swaps its fierce neutrality temperament for the soothing tranquility of ancient Asian techniques. This potent chiropractic concoction penetrates beyond the surface of malignant muscle groups to release the body’s natural endorphins and increase joint flexibility. Along with its well-documented tendency to promote low blood pressure and a peculiar appetite for lingonberry preserves, Swedish massage therapy can also stimulate the lymphatic system and help reduce painful post-surgical adhesions.
Integrative Hospital Associates
When interviewed by Holistic Health magazine in 2006, Dr. Scott Denny proclaimed, “There is a great synergy when conventional medicine and oriental medicine are applied together.” This holistic harmony is readily apparent at Integrative Hospital Associates, where Dr. Denny has devoted his life to treating acute and chronic health issues with an approach that integrates the healing philosophies of both Eastern and Western medicine. Together with his personable team of chiropractic physicians, nutrition experts, and massage therapists, Dr. Denny works tirelessly to enhance clients' well-being through acupuncture and an array of other therapies designed to help combat addiction, disease, and habitual sleepsurfing. Oriental-medicine techniques, such as herbal medicine and the Gua Sha healing process, work alongside services based in conventional science, such as cold-laser therapy and MLS robotic laser therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Among other accolades, Dr. Denny is the 11-time recipient of the Continuing Education Excellence Award in Pain Management and has served as the President of the American Academy of Pain Management and the head of acupuncture services at Holy Cross Hospital Feldman Center for Optimal Health. The compassionate doctor has been featured in local news media for his “multifaceted approach” to treating chronic pain and is also the inventor of Dodai Fusion Therapy, a combination of ancient Japanese manual therapy and meridian-based acupuncture techniques. Dr. Denny is the first pain practice in South Florida to use the MLS laser therapy for over 7 years and has provided nearly 13,000 treatments.
