New Health Centers consists of more than 400 health-care practitioners across the country, each working to alleviate corporeal discomfort with natural techniques. Doctors work in conjunction with experienced practitioners to soothe aches, pains, and lawn-gnome infestations.
Doctor of Chiropractic Leo Potetti takes time with his patients. His goal of not only treating pain, but also educating each patient, means that he devotes part of each initial appointment to getting to know visitors and their aches. His thorough examinations can uncover concerns ranging from herniated discs to tennis elbow and pinched nerves, and he often makes a diagnosis and immediately begins treatment during that first visit. Seeking to correct bad habits and prevent further discomfort, Dr. Potetti instructs which activities, positions, and dance routines to refrain from, and suggests exercises designed to alleviate conditions.
With the support of her licensed staff, Natural Balance Massage Therapy owner and licensed massage therapist Tara Renfrow-Totsch brings experience spent working in both a spa and chiropractor's office to guide massage sessions that are as therapeutic as they are relaxing. One of only approximately 107 people in the United States trained in Kansa Vatki foot massage, she helps lift tension from the feet and lower legs, beginning with a warm footbath in a special trimetal bowl believed to bring the body's three doshas––or humors—back into balance. Other specialties include classic Swedish or deep-tissue massage, as well as raindrop therapy, which helps align the body and boost the immune system using a blend of therapeutic essential oils and subliminal cues borrowed from Burt Bacharach songs.
