Gailes Chiropractic treats a mélange of musculoskeletal maladies in patients of all ages. Doctors Jared and Diana Gailes begin each introductory session with a comprehensive consultation and exam to help pinpoint the cause of spinal stress. The expert aligners then perform two adjustments to straighten stubborn subluxations and manipulate veering vertebrae back into place. Hydromassage offers a more aquatically inclined therapy without the need for nose plugs or floral-print swimsuits. During the 30-minute session fully clothed patients lie down on a waterbed-like table while waves of heated water lap against back beaches to produce a relaxing tidal treatment with adjustable intensity.

At New Hope Family Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Rodger B. Lincoln relies on the Gonstead technique to correct misaligned spines. Adhering to the technique’s philosophy of pre-adjustment research and analysis, Dr. Lincoln first gathers as much info about his patients’ body structures as possible. He conducts consultations, chiropractic exams, and, at his Riverside location, takes x-rays. Once he is properly informed, he pinpoints the troubled area and delivers a gentle but precise adjustment to misaligned vertebrae.
For many people, the phrase "pins and needles" does not provoke relaxing thoughts. Acupuncture and Hypnosis's diplomate of acupuncture Steven Boyd strives to subvert that instinct with his community-style acupuncture sessions. In a group space, clients rest fully clothed atop comfortable recliners while Boyd inserts hair-thin needles at meridian points all over the body. These needles are intended to strengthen the body's flow of energy at crucial junctures. This redirected energy, or qi, can affect overall health by reducing pain and stress, enhancing energy and digestion.
Through the art of Reiki, Vedic Bee Healing owner Kim Symock helps people to relax, reduce pain, and even improve their self-esteem. Reiki is a stress-reducing spiritual technique with roots in Japanese alternative medicine—but the practice can be used in conjunction with any traditional treatments. During a Reiki session, a person will lay down while a practitioner uses light touching or hand-hovering, unleashing energy and encouraging self-healing. Afterwards, you might find yourself sleeping better, enjoying sharper intuition, and feeling happier. If you're interesting in learning how to perform Reiki for yourself, Kim teaches students the basics of the practice during classes.
