Alternative Medicine That Works

If you’ve been a reader for a while you know the drill, but for those that are new or need a little refresher, here’s the deal: Each week I highlight an amazing local business that I think you should know about. I have some strict criteria that I stick to so that you can be assured that these businesses are legit. Every business I highlight has to show year-over-year growth, and they have to be doing things the right way-nothing shady here. They also need to have excellent reviews on Yelp as customer service is key. I only let my readers know about the absolute best businesses that this great county has to offer.

This week I want to highlight a place that excels in helping you to be as healthy as possible.

Gone are the days of only having one option for healthcare. The traditional doctor’s office, where you schedule an appointment, go and sit in the waiting room for an hour and then are finally seen by the doctor’s assistant, and prescribed a general drug to try and make you feel better. I’m ready for a new experience, and I think you are too.

I want to introduce you to SOHMA Integrative Health Center. They provide holistic health care that is focused on the patient, combining Western and Eastern medical care while avoiding surgery and drugs. Often times a healthier diet, therapeutic massage, and non-invasive therapies like chiropractic care and Tai Chi can cure the aches and pains you are having.

I came across SOHMA because I was having some back issues and was looking for a chiropractor in Long Beach. You know you’re getting older when your back tightens up as you are getting out of bed in the morning! I went on Yelp and came across these guys. They have fantastic reviews!

I decided that I would give them a try and I was not disappointed. I showed up and was greeted by a friendly staff. They were ready right away for me. I didn’t even get a chance to sit down in the waiting room before they called me back. Daniel did fantastic work on my back; the next morning I woke up and felt like a new man. He also educated me on the different services SOHMA offers and mentioned that I might want to look into acupuncture.

Now, I’m typically not into Eastern medicine, but when I got home I decided I might give it a try. My back hadn’t felt so good in a long time, I thought I would at least try was Daniel suggested. I pulled out my computer and searched for acupuncture in Long Beach. Well, low and behold guess what came up. It was SOHMA’s Yelp page again. I gave Daniel a call back and told him I’d like to give acupuncture a shot. I scheduled another appointment and had a second wonderful experience. I was greeted again by the same friendly staff, they even remembered my name! I had another short wait time and I was pleasantly surprised by the acupuncture treatment. Truthfully I was a little nervous going into it, but the staff explained everything so clearly that I felt comfortable trying something so different for me.

Well, it’s safe to say that I give SOHMA Integrative Health Center a glowing review. They had amazing service and are one of my new favorite growing businesses in Orange County.
