It begins with a thorough consultation. Each visitor to Amity Green Room first sits with one of the massage therapists, discussing any aches, pains, injuries, or persistent ailments. Based on findings, the therapist then selects from six modalities to address issues such as stress and sports-related injuries. The office also offers scrubs of the back or feet, as well as aromatherapy.

When Michelle Paris moved from Ohio to San Francisco, it was like entering a new world. A student of both opera and business, she saw the move as a chance to break out of her comfort zone. There, according to her website, she "hugged a tree and bought granola . . . and went to visit a chiropractor." Four visits later, her chronic migraines were gone. When it dawned on her that it had been months since she'd taken the pain-relief pills she was so accustomed to swallowing, she decided to go to medical school.
While volunteering at a hospital, Michelle noticed that prescription drugs were thrown at nearly every ailment, but she didn't want to foist drugs on people if there was another, more natural solution. So she enrolled at Life Chiropractic College West, where she graduated at the top of her class. Since then, this doctor of chiropractic has not only helped more than 3,500 patients back to healthy lifestyles, she's also stayed abreast of the latest healing techniques. For instance, she's become certified in the Graston technique?a method of rehabilitation that helps soft tissue heal after injuries caused by traumatic accidents or time spent operating a rickshaw for sumo wrestlers.
