Cardinale Acupuncture is owned and operated by Chet Cardinale, a licensed acupuncturist with extensive training beneath his homeopathic belt. Sidle up to his perforation palace, prepared to explain your particular maladies and allow the treatment to be tailored to your individual needs. Acupuncture technique draws on the ancient concept of qi, the life force that flows through the body, and remains a vital part of health care in Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, and other countries. It works by applying small, virtually painless needles to areas of the body where qi likes to hang out, stimulating proper energy flow and relieving impediments to good health. In 2003, the World Health Organization issued a review of clinical trials that suggested acupuncture may be an effective treatment for a range of conditions including headaches, nausea, sprains, and allergies.
Though Dr. Robert Grobelny holds advanced degrees in acupuncture and chiropractic medicine, his pursuit of knowledge is not limited to the classroom. In 2007, he traveled to Hang Zhou, China, where he assisted in rounds at a teaching hospital. Back home, Dr. Grobelny is one of only three Erie County doctors licensed to practice in both acupuncture and chiropractic medicine. Invoking the nearly 5,000-year-old holistic remedy of acupuncture, Dr. Grobelny treats ailments ranging from arthritis to addiction using tiny, minimally invasive needles. He also diagnoses and treats musculoskeletal-system distress with a discerning chiropractic eye and the deft touch of a neurosurgeon concert pianist.
The trained stylists at Sass Hair Salon access a cache of lock-vivifying services to create custom looks. Those oppressed by unruly curly hair can subvert tress tyranny with a keratin straightening treatment. A coiffure captain will tackle frizzyness to the floor and smooth the hair into a less spring-like texture, allowing previously torque-addled strands of hair to release their tension. After the formaldehyde-free treatment, clients get complimentary shampoo and conditioner to take home and use to grease slip 'n' slides.
