At Apple Valley Wellness Center, doctor of chiropractic Aaron D. Williams and his staff treat pain caused by sports injuries, automobile accidents, and conditions such as arthritis. They help clients escape achiness with traditional methods such as adjustments, massage therapy, and corrective exercises, as well as more technologically advanced approaches such as hydrotherapy, cold laser therapy, and boo-boo kisses from a motherly robot. To assess which method is best, Dr. Williams consults with each patient prior to treatment.
Licensed massage therapist Natalie Schuler worked the salon circuit until opening Gentle Health Alternatives in 2011. Since then, she’s been practicing her trade in the welcoming studio, inviting clients to relinquish the stress of the outside world and indulge in Swedish, deep-tissue, or pre-natal massages. To further pamper her guests, she doles out salt glow scrubs, hot and cold stone massages, and detoxifying foot soaks.
Licensed massage therapist ToniRose understands that each client is different and not everyone needs the same massage. She can customize services with modalities ranging from prenatal to deep tissue in order to treat a wide range of symptoms, such as the overworked muscles of a construction worker or the special needs of an expectant construction worker. Along with her standard massage services, she also offers chair massages to simply relax after a long day.
• For $149, you get four laser hair-removal sessions for one of the following smaller areas: bikini, cheeks, chin, feet and toes, lip, neckline, or underarms (a $596 value). • For $199, you get four laser hair-removal sessions for the lower leg (a $956 value). Clinical Skin Therapeutics' laser technicians halt the advance of men's and women's marauding bristle with a clean and professional approach. During a hair-removal session, the clinic's beauty mages train a Sciton laser on the melanin embedded within each hair follicle. Energy created by the laser's heated pulses lightens pigment, withers the hair, and instills future fuzz with the fear of seeing its own shadow. The gentle treatment renders limbs and features dolphin-smooth and fit to flaunt for the rest of the warm season. Sessions treating any of the seven smaller areas generally last 30 minutes each, and all sessions occur four to eight weeks apart to catch follicles in the act of sprouting hands to steal cookies.
At Premier Life Massage, the team members are not interested in temporary fixes when it comes to their patients’ health. Through their treatments, they strive to relieve pain with long-term holistic solutions, whether they are realigning the spine with chiropractic adjustments, kneading muscles with various massage styles, or facilitating systemic well-being with nutrition programs. Massages can be tailored based on an initial 10-minute, one-on-one consultation with a doctor. Patients can also work with Dr. Lance Stromberg, D.C., who may recommend x-rays and a posture assessment to improve on their next massage–techniques much less insulting than asking the patient if he or she has ever starred in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Blissful Massage Therapy's Erin Langer caters to owners of noncompliant muscles with four styles of massage, each served in 90-minute doses and customized to meet defined demands. Soothing music invites relaxation to the bodywork table as clients present goals and problem spots to Langer's experienced mitts. General massages spin steel-wooly fibers into flowing silken tissues, warding off sleeplessness and high blood pressure caused by visits from a Grimm villain. For those looking to drive out discomfort associated with carrying a watermelon while whittling a teddy bear out of soap, the prenatal massage gently wiggles away said pregnancy woes and more. During Swedish and relaxation massages, palms gradually compress muscles to eliminate toxins, mash hidden potatoes, and boost circulation.
At Natural Health Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Brandon Mannie and his team perform holistic treatments that either help heal or prevent pain or improve overall wellness. Chiropractic services such as x-rays and vertebral adjustments ensure bodies get back to optimal health. A functional-medicine approach uses tools such as physical exams and medical-history questionnaires to find out what is causing a patient pain. Nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice help patients figure out what foods or activities to avoid in order to maintain good health.
Dr. Mannie also helps improve appearances with body wraps that reduce cellulite and lipolasers, which noninvasively shrink fat cells. Whole-body vibration plates further tone muscles with vigorous shaking.
