Shiatsu Renu's marquee treatment dates back to 1000 AD. But in the 1940s, shiatsu was combined with knowledge of Western anatomy. Today, the treatment—a therapeutic marriage of Eastern and Western techniques—is a popular way to boost energy and promote balance and wellness. Shiatus Renu's massage therapists are well versed in the Japanese treatment, as well as Swedish and deep-tissue massages, which each relax the mind and remove tension and pain from the body. The staff members also offer heated Thai herbal massages. These are administered with the help of steamed bundles of herbs, which open up pores, infuse bodies with medicinal oils, and help relax muscles tense from flexing for traffic-camera photos.

Dr. Payne’s chiropractic skills have successfully treated headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and double-knotted spines. His clinic also offers massage-therapy sessions to combat chronic pain, and medically supervised weight-loss programs that uses the hormone HCG to drop up to 1 pound a day.
Doctor of Chiropractic Tyce Hergert begins your visit with an exam and consultation ($120) to figure out the what and where (double-parked semi, caution tape) of what's blocking your path to total wellness. With diagnosis in hand, the doc will perform your choice of a traditional needled treatment or a needle-free microcurrent procedure ($75). Both treatments tap into the network of channels through which your body's energy flows to unstick blocked passages—either with the insertion of a super-fine needle or the delivery of an uber-small electrical pulse that's designed to resonate with the body's natural electrical activity. If necessary, you will also receive up to two x-rays (up to a $75 value). In addition to relieving chronic pain and milkshake brain freeze, acupuncture has also been known to aid in weight loss and fighting nicotine cravings.
