Feel Better, Totally

Nothing quite compares to that experience: You’re sitting in the doctor’s office, awkward paper apron askew, shivering, only to be treated like a car at a mechanic’s. “Replace this, tweak that, and you’ve got a leak in your stomach’s flux capacitor,” she says, before scribbling on a pad and scampering away. Simply popping a pill might fix the acute pain, but what then? What about the rest of your fabulous self? East West Physicians have a few ideas about that. By blending traditional pharmaceuticals with massage, acupuncture, and whole-body exercise plans, the doctors at EWP want to take things farther than simply healing your ailment: They want to keep you healthy.

Today, sample what this facility has to offer, and get cool wellness-related freebies, like blood pressure testing, mini-massages, and tongue and pulse analysis. While you’re getting rubbed down and worked over, enjoy a complimentary lunch, sample herbal teas, and be serenaded by saxophone player Michael Kennedy. Oh yeah, and some lucky ducky in attendance is going to win an iPod Touch. Free lunch, massage, and music? You’re feeling better already. The Open House Health Fest goes on from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at East West Physicians (4651 N. State Rd. 7, #9, Coconut Creek). Call 954-255-9355, or visit eastwestphysicians.com.
