In his more than 30 years as a chiropractor, Dr. Jeffrey Gamble has learned that the more time he spends with a patient, the easier it is to personalize their treatment plan. That’s why he carves out extra time for first-time patients who visit Knight Gamble Chiropractic, giving him ample time to learn about their health history, perform an examination, and grade them on how well they remembered their own health history on the exam. He specializes in treating patients who suffer from headaches, nerve pain, whiplash injuries, sports-related injuries, and TMJ.
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for back pain, because each person's unique body structure and lifestyle create different aches and areas of tension. That's why Laura Mae Meure, the licensed massage therapist behind Laura's Therapeutic Massage, tailors her treatments to each individual. She blends Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage techniques as needed, loosening tissues and relieving pain. In addition to these physical benefits, her treatments can help relieve issues such as anxiety and depression.
At Mirela’s Spa du Jour, aestheticians begin each deluxe facial treatment by engaging clients in a consultation to determine which version of the service will best shush their pore protests. Nimble hands then whip up one of six specially designed concoctions: an extreme-hydration treatment bans dryness, a vitamin C treatment brightens complexions, and a caviar treatment spares clients from dunking their faces in the wrong hors d’oeuvres at parties. An optional microdermabrasion mechanically exfoliates the skin, gently abrading mugs with a handheld mechanism that loosens weathered cells before drawing them from the surface with soft suction. Afterward, clients may notice a reduction in such signs of age as sun spots, fine lines, and birthday-candle burns.
Pink Tanning & Body Spa’s sole aesthetician, Danielle Pinkerton, has been featured in ieStyle Magazine for her results-driven, personalized facials that leave human frontispieces glowing with the help of organic and vegan Osea products. When applied by such a professional, Osea's skin-nourishing salves seep into pores to deliver vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids derived from the earth, sea, and cereal-box prize pouches. The seasoned aesthetician's repertoire of epidermal services also includes organic body scrubs that render skin silky smooth and merciful waxing treatments that oust unwanted hair with fragrant Escential wax. Her steady hand can also augment skin color during custom spray-tanning sessions held in her salon or in the comfort of the client's home through her mobile service.
