Helmed by Dr. Jonathan Dehors, a graduate of the New York Chiropractic College and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Upper Hand Chiropractic targets chronic pain with research-based spine-adjustment methods and soft-tissue manipulation techniques. Instead of resetting bones with a bowling-pin machine, Dr. Dehors applies a gentle force to a specific joint or vertebra, which can relieve pressure on the surrounding nerves and increase the area’s range of motion. Massage therapy incorporates deep-tissue strokes and myofascial-release techniques, which ease inflammation even as they boost circulation. To melt muscle knots and snowmen hitching piggyback rides, Dr. Dehors may employ soothing hot and cold packs or Soft Tissue Tech, a special instrument he invented to treat soft tissue dysfunction.
Galina Shapiro of Body Tuning Massage Studio lets her hands do the healing with multiple massage modalities performed in private treatment rooms. Galina begins with a consultation to tailor care to the client's specific aches, problem areas, and number of vestigial wings. After finalizing a plan for peace, she goes to work, utilizing techniques ranging from lighter Swedish strokes to the holistic healing of traditional lomi lomi massage. Galina is also well versed in Russian medical massage, an integrative approach that blends relaxing strokes with deep-tissue kneads to make muscles soften like a rock monster who just had his first kiss.
Treating tense muscles is like bargain hunting—it can conserve a lot of money in the long run but shouldn’t be done with the aid of a shady character in a dark alley. Amid soothing décor featuring earthy tones and violet hues, clients of Massage Envy begin their session with an initial consultation that determines which customized massage will provide the best results. For example, a sports massage provides treatment specific to the athlete’s sport, reflexology targets points on the extremities to balance the nervous system, and deep-tissue massage unties knots while relieving chronic muscle tension. Trigger-point therapy alleviates tight areas within muscle tissue through cycles of isolated pressure and release, while a Swedish massage relaxes the whole body with long, gliding strokes. The professional massage therapists at Massage Envy will apply the necessary muscle treatment with pinpoint precision and buttery smoothness during convenient hours, including evenings and weekends.

The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering.
