Dr. O'Mead Rahmanian, author of The Chiropractic Way To Health, transplanted his practice from San Diego, where he won the 2010 Talk of the Town Award for his work, to Anchorage after he and his family fell in love with the area. With his recently opened practice, and new Lipo-Light machine, Dr. O'Mead works to treat and prevent pain with a variety of techniques, including nonsurgical spinal decompression, cold-laser therapy, and therapeutic massage. He treats many conditions, including chronic headaches and migraines, sports injuries, and whiplash, which is when you punish the hair above your eyes for falling out. Dr. O'Mead also supplements massages with electrical stimulation to calm muscle spasms, and his open massage tables enhance spinal motion.
Licensed massage therapists at Luminary help relieve and soothe inflamed muscles with deep-tissue massage therapy. During the one-hour treatment, massage mavens' expert hands soothe superficial muscles in order to reach underlying layers of flesh, where their deftly applied pressure can reduce inflammation-related soreness, injury-related discomfort, and clown-related emotional distress. Trained to comfortably untangle muscle knots, massage mavens adjust their pressure to each patient's preference to avoid causing unnecessary discomfort. As massages calm muscles, the walls of treatment rooms calm the eyes with earthy brown and green tones, soft lighting, and framed portraits of famous pillows.
With 15 locations statewide, Arctic Chiropractic serves most regions of Alaska, including its flagship location in Anchorage, located at 36th and Denali (formerly Kremer Chiropractic).

All treatments are overseen by an on-staff physician, who can help with general healthcare goals and especially tricky sudoku puzzles.
Dr. Allison Hill believes that treating each patient from the inside out is the only path to holistic health. This is why her Motive 8 Health Studio hosts regularly scheduled Pilates and tai chi classes alongside chiropractic and massage services that facilitate a well-rounded approach to total-body wellness, giving clients the ability to finally climb a ladder with no hands.:
Doctor of chiropractic Tory Freeman molds each treatment to the patient's body, instead of molding each patient's body to the same die-cast of Hulk Hogan. He won't take full-back x-rays to address a complaint of neck pain. His appointments vary in length to fit the case; for an adjustment, he might have the patient in and out the door in minutes. For a more serious malady, he takes the time to examine x-rays or lead rehabilitation exercises the patient can continue at home.
Back in Motion's licensed massage therapists focus their collective vertebral ability into an array of styles to help dissolve chronic soreness and debilitating stiffness. During each one-hour therapeutic session, muscle menders customize a holistic healing treatment, directing intense pressure and friction to tension with deep-tissue techniques, or vaporizing obdurate strain and clearing minds of Golden Girls quotes with the Trager method. The lymphatic drainage and myofascial release work to reduce overall corporal discomfort, the former through soothing strokes that improve lymph flow and the latter by exploiting the interconnections of the body's fascia. Groupon customers wishing to upgrade massages with hot rocks, additional time, or a relaxing pyrotechnics display can take 55% off the added cost.
