Company Teams with Dr. Gary Norwood to Provide Chinese Medicine Alternatives
PLANTATION, FL (April 17, 2007) – Body Well Inc., a provider of managed massage and wellness services, announced today that it will now offer acupuncture in addition to massage therapy. The new service is made possible by a partnership with Dr. Gary Norwood, a licensed Acupuncturist, Massage Therapist, and Chinese Medical Doctor who has practiced the healing arts for over 25 years.
Acupuncture has been used successfully for more than 5000 years to treat a variety of specific medical conditions including musculoskeletal injuries, sciatica, arthritis, migraine headaches, digestive disorders, acid reflux disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and more. To become certified, one must complete several years of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine at an accredited school or university, in addition to passing state licensing examinations.
“We are extremely pleased to announce this partnership, which will allow us to provide a greater variety of holistic health care services to our clients,” said Dan Melmed, President of Body Well. “Dr. Norwood is highly experienced and a master in his field. I have personally benefited greatly from his treatments, so I can enthusiastically endorse him to work with our valued clients.”
Dr. Norwood was born and raised in Australia, where he started his career in physical training instruction and massage therapy. He then went on to study acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He has worked in Europe and throughout the United States, specifically in Florida since 2001.
“Acupuncture has cured more people in the history of the world than any other modality, so it’s got a good track record,” remarked Dr. Norwood. “I’ve found that combining acupuncture and massage therapy into one treatment provides a great ‘one-two punch’ in dealing with a variety of common health problems, so partnering with Body Well is a great fit all around.”
Body Well is offering a one hour treatment combining acupuncture and massage therapy for $110. The service can be delivered either in-home or in-office and is currently available throughout central Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
Body Well, operating in the South Florida Tri-County area, offers a wide range of professional massage therapy and wellness services including home visits, event/chair massage, therapist staffing of physician’s offices and other massage facilities, in-room hotel services and more.
