Gig Harbor Chiropractic & Massage is helmed by husband-and-wife doctor duo Greg and Keri Messer, two graduates of Western States Chiropractic College who set out together to annihilate pain one spine at a time. One of the doctors or their skilled staff members will begin your exam with a conversation about your back bothers and health habits. Next, you'll receive a complete chiropractic examination that tests your reflexes, flexibility, posture, and more, followed by a computerized spinal assessment to discover if any disks are bulging, shoulders are slumping, or vertebrae have forgotten the state capitals. If a bit of extra dorsal detective work is required, you'll receive up to two x-rays before the doctor reports his or her findings and recommendations for any necessary treatment.
With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company’s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as Peach Perfection and Strawberry Whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including Peanut Butter Moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate. The lunch hour presents toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320–420 calories each.
In addition to providing healthy eats to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative fights childhood obesity while encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active—which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
Moctezuma’s first came to life in 1978, when Arturo Garcia decided to share his culture, love of cooking, and knowledge of the correct spelling of “Montezuma” with Northwest diners. To this day, diners can expect excellent service and a tasty menu of authentic, home-style Mexican cuisine prepared from the finest ingredients. Focus the palate with some fiesta queso dip ($5.99) or some chorizo bean dip ($5.99), then use your mouth mowers to shred a carne-asada salad ($11.99) with homemade chipotle-ranch dressing. Discriminating diners can find out what it takes to win Weekly Volcano's brutal, no-holds-barred Tournament of Tacos by trying a serving of Mexico City tacos ($12.99) stuffed with carne asada, marinated chicken, or pork carnitas. Final Fantasy fans, meanwhile, will get a kick out of watching the waiter cast Firaga on a plate of steak, chicken, or shrimp fajitas ($16.49) using a little gold tequila and a flamethrower. And if a cheddar-, guacamole-, and sour-cream-topped chimichanga ($11.99) doesn't make one sufficiently nostalgic for one's former life as a mermaid, enjoy a plate of camarones a la diabla ($14.99) with rice and sautéed vegetables, or happily consume a Cabo shrimp cocktail ($12.99) and then wash away the evidence with a refreshing Jalapeño Margarita, with house-made jalapeño-infused tequila, triple sec and fresh-squeezed citrus juices, hand-shaken and served in a 20 oz. shaker ($7.95).
