With chiropractic doctorates that crown undergraduate educations in human biology, Doctors of Chiropractic Jarrod Lippy and Joshua Levin bring wisdom and experience to their practice and to their philosophy, which integrates the health of both mind and body and centers around preventative care. The duo perform their back-mending services with the latest in high-tech equipment, including computerized spinal analyses, electrical muscle stimulation, and hydromassage, during which patients lie fully clothed inside a water-massage bed or beneath white-water rapids as pressurized jets assuage tension. The doctors focus on each patient individually, employing their extensive experience in personal and work injuries, lower-back pain, and arthritis to properly diagnose maladies, perform adjustments, and refer patients to additional specialists if necessary.
At the helm of Baltimore Cakery—a certified-green bakery—skilled chef and co-owner Jill uses all-natural European butter and organic ingredients to create a menu of decadent and beautifully adorned cakes tailored to client’s preferences and dietary restrictions. Rich dark-chocolate ganache and absinthe infuse two layers of velvety chocolate cake in the 9-inch Raven ($18), named in honor of the Baltimore Ravens, Edgar Allan Poe, and the boozy tendencies of birds. Iced buttercream and wasabi croquants crown four 9-inch layers of peach and ginger-hinted cake in the Peaches B. Demented ($30), and a quarter sheet of Little Italy ($35) attacks taste buds with cinnamon-dusted cannoli cream and cream-cheese icing. The sweetsmiths also churn out flaky crust creations, including the Pleasant Living pie ($16)—spiced sweet potatoes and cream cheese atop a graham-cracker crust—and concoct cupcakes by the dozen ($24) to share with 11 friends or pelt at 11 hungry zombies. Customers with dietary restrictions may request gluten-free and vegan options.
Experienced, board-certified physician Dr. Terrance L. Baker called upon his 25 years of medical experience to develop noninvasive, FDA-approved Sollay therapy as a means of treating chronic aches and troublesome fat. During each treatment, the low-level beam of the laser apparatus floods skin in therapeutic, single-wavelength light. These beams raise the temperature of the injured tissue, which increases blood flow and boosts lymphatic drainage to oust pain, fat, and swallowed chewing gum. Additionally, the laser helps deliver electrons to damaged cells, equipping them with a boost of energy that helps them recover naturally. Sollay treatments can tackle corporeal discomfort embedded within such body areas as the neck, back, knees, feet, and dorsal fin.

Just as the body is one big system comprised of many individual elements, Fidel Chiropractic Center's health-bolstering organization aids its patients through the work of a team. Founded in 1987 by chiropractors Adam and Ilene Fidel, the team consists of an acupuncturist, several massage therapists and chiropractic assistants, a personal trainer and fitness instructor, and three chiropractors—the Fidels and Cheryl Kalb, who joined the founders more than a decade ago.
