Gold Member Profile: Thomas Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a science of healing, regeneration, and adaptation.  Physical therapists spend many years in training and education for their mode of work, and those that receive the calling are strong individuals with a desire to improve the lives of others.  Thomas Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy, a Gold Member of Alternative Health Florida, brings many years of experience and specialization to their clients.

Physical therapy is not just for recovery from injury or surgery - visiting a physical therapist can provide much needed relief for minor problems.  The staff of Thomas Physical Therapy emphasize the importance of good sitting and standing posture in their work.  The practice also hosts frequent educational seminars to cover a broad range of topics including problem areas of the body.

Thomas Physical Therapy has an easy to find office at the International Speedway East exit from Interstate-95 in Daytona Beach, Florida.  They bill directly to Medicare, Workers Compensation Insurance, and Automobile Accident Insurance.  For private insurance they advise you to check with your company first to find out what you are covered for so that you may be reimbursed.

Alternative Health Florida is proud to feature Thomas Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy as a Gold Member of its network of health providers.    

Gold Member Profile: Living Waters Health

Living Waters Health Foods on West Granada Blvd. (Rte. 40) in Ormond Beach, Florida sets itself apart in many other ways besides being one of the first Gold Members of Alternative Health Florida.

From the moment you walk into this independent and woman-owned shop, you have a sense of calm.  Living Waters has everything you need in a clean, bright environment staffed by kind, helpful people.  Sarah Weiner, proprietor of Living Waters Health for nearly 15 years, has made it a priority to provide help to those who seek it.

Living Waters has their own alkaline water filtration system and they invite customers to bring their own bottles and fill them with this fabulous water for free.  Can you name any other business that provides such a service at no charge?

Sarah is particularly proud to be the only distributor in the area of the fantastic Dr. Hauschka skin care line.  Dr. Hauschka is a brand of homeopathic cosmetics that is created using biodynamically grown organic ingredients and sold only by stores that meet very high requirements.  Living Waters Health stands behind the integrity and effectiveness of the Dr. Hauschka company products.

Please see Living Waters Health on Alternative Health Florida and make a point to stop in when you are in the neighborhood - it is worth the stop and you may just find yourself returning so much that you need to sign up for one of their nifty rewards cards!

Gold Member Profile: Wayne's Solar

There was a time when just a few visionaries were considering solar power to be a viable alternative to typical energy sources. Wayne Phillips of Wayne's Solar decided that using technology and the natural light of the sun were the perfect ways to harness clean energy for swimming pool heating. This was over 25 years ago and Wayne's Solar has been ahead of the times ever since.

Headquartered in Ormond Beach, Florida and covering a wide area in surrounding central and northeastern Florida, Wayne's Solar provides complete solar solutions that save money and the environment. Whether it is a solar attic fan to cut down on air conditioner overuse or a solar pool heating system to give you several more months of recreation with your family, Wayne installs only the best products for solar.

Wayne's Solar also provides skylight sun tunnels, photovoltaics for the whole home, service and repair of solar panels, and the appliance everyone can't get enough of: solar powered hot water heaters! Please consider Wayne's Solar, Gold Member of Alternative Health Florida, for your alternative energy needs.

A great beginning at Alternative Health Florida

Our site has its official launch in just two days (April 7th, 2010!) and the excitement is building for those of us who have worked hard to put it all together.  We are pleased to announce our very first Gold Featured Member, Logical Therapy Wellness Center, who next up will receive the individualized blog post accorded to all Gold Members.

Our Twitter feed already has a handful of followers and we thank them for showing interest and support for Alternative Health Florida before it even gets off the ground.  We are lucky and blessed to know so many great natural healthcare and lifestyle providers in Florida and hope some (if not all!) of them will join our network.
