Dr. Luis Del Rio and the crew at Infinite Health & Spine Center not only relieve structural and muscular issues with traditional chiropractic adjustments, but also attempt to stop pain before it starts. The clinic's own weight-loss program can alleviate some of the pressure placed on spines and muscles, sparing clients future back problems. When pain is already present, licensed massage therapists knead bodies with five different types of massage. The entire staff is bilingual, so they can consult with patients in either Spanish or English, though a single syllable of Italian makes them cry in confusion.
A devotee of meditation for many years, Heidi Chinlund found that hypnosis and self-hypnosis transported her to deep mental states more quickly than meditation ever had. Since becoming a Certified Clinical Hypnotist in 2010, Heidi has harnessed her hypnotic voice to help patients decrease their anxiety, gain confidence, and relieve pain from chronic ailments. She has also designed hypnosis sessions to access memories from past lives, as well as sessions to quit smoking by changing behaviors on the subconscious level.
Monica Leibacher's therapeutic bodywork sessions blend components of Swedish massage, craniosacral therapy, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial release to yield optimal results for her clients.

She also uses Young Living Essential Oils for boosts of aromatherapy or organic unscented massage cream during treatments. Other holistic wellness services include ear candling, kinesiotaping, and ionic detox footbaths. Rosewood Holistic Health offers both adult and pediatric treatments.
Regardless of whether she's conducting a massage or reiki, Adriana Florez always strives toward the same goal: restoring the body's balance. A licensed massage therapist since 2007, she draws upon eight modalities that range from gentle Swedish strokes and soothing hot stones to more intensive neuromuscular therapy techniques. Her reiki sessions, meanwhile, keep each client's chakras in their proper place, while body wraps detoxify skin and facials clear up epidermal dryness, acne, or the emergence of unsightly devil horns. To make appointments all the more relaxing, Adriana happily includes add-ons such as aromatherapy and meditation music.
