To Doctors of Chiropractic Dyhr and Ellis at Lenoir City Chiropractic, the spine is more than just a curvy queue of vertebrae. Take the second cervical vertebrae, for example: if off-kilter, it can have effects on the brain, eyes, and sinuses. Drs. Dyhr and Ellis use any combination of eight techniques to realign spines at Lenoir City Chiropractic. They may devise a personalized workout regimen for clients with misaligned muscles and connective tissues or stifle neck pain or deflate disk bulges by positioning patients on the decompression-therapy bed. They also rely on spinal adjustments, nutritional counseling, simple lifestyle advice, and massage therapy from on-staff licensed massage therapist Melissa Deering to mute chronic pain.
Licensed aesthetician Gaye Lay regales faces with a procession of three facial treatments in her signature package designed to improve blood circulation, diminish stress, and destroy toxins. The 75-minute visage coddling begins with a one-hour european facial, which uses pharmaceutical-grade products and aromatherapy oils for a skin-soothing, sweet-smelling experience unlike counting sardines in a horse stable. A skilled aesthetician then smoothes out faces through microdermabrasion—which sprays aluminum-oxide crystals on the face to banish dead skin cells—or a purity peel, whose ingredients wash away dead skin cells and improve moisture retention. Afterwards, the Ultrasonic Skin Rejuvenation procedure can hydrate skin and reduce wrinkles with ultrasonic wavelengths, or the LED-light therapy transmits diode wavelengths that can enhance the skin's radiance and firmness. An eyebrow wax using the Nufree Nudesse antibacterial hair-removal system shapes eyebrows before they morph into eye beards.

The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.
At Pinnacle Physical Medicine and Rehab, Doctor of Chiropractic Ted Showalter has seen several sides of the health industry. Before becoming a chiropractor, he spent eight years as an emergency-room nurse, observing the regular use of conventional medical techniques, such as drugs and surgery. With those observations in mind, he began chiropractic school and began to view the body not as a sum of parts, but as a whole, a self-contained system designed to keep itself healthy.
A chiropractor since 1999, Dr. Showalter has gathered an arsenal of noninvasive procedures designed to rid bodies of pain and keep them functioning at their peaks. Apart from spinal adjustments and massages, he checks the body for toxins and helps curb smoking and other addictions with auriculotherapy.
