Josh Chen of Vantis Therapeutic Massage began his career as an acupuncturist, regularly incorporating massage into treatments when humming whale songs didn't work. When Chen studied acupressure under a Taiwanese master, something clicked. Combining the techniques he learned in acupuncture and acupressure, as well as methods from tai chi, Chen was able to create his own massage style.
In the Chinese tradition, Chen performs each massage over clothing and without oils. He blends Western modalities such as deep tissue with Eastern tui na and acupressure to fit the client's needs. His relaxing studio is decorated with live plants, minimalist furniture, and earth tones.

Citizen of the world Pieter Elsen was born and raised in The Netherlands, but his thirst for spiritual knowledge eventually took him to India, where he lived for more than a decade as a Vedic monk.

The doctors at La Paz Spine and Rehab believe the best way to treat pain and illness is to prevent it in the first place. To do that, they customize programs for each patient and implement the least invasive treatments to address maladies such as back pain, pinched nerves, and even allergies. If pain relief is necessary before beginning the wellness program, they perform adjustments that correct slight dislocations or misalignments in the spine. Treatments also include everything from physical and massage therapy to laser therapy.
Dr. Marjan Khorrami believes her patients' treatment shouldn't end as soon as they walk out of Khorrami Chiropractic Wellness Center. That's why she takes time to discuss ways they can improve their health aside from her direct treatment, perhaps by giving nutrition advice or advising them on an exercise routine. That's true whether they are there for an elaborate treatment such as hormonal balancing or merely a simple therapeutic massage.
