Gary Mock alleviates pain with massages and rolfing. He offers deep-tissue massages as well as the Unwinder, a massage designed for those that spend a lot of time at their computers. Alternatively, rolfing is a holistic approach to treating pain that takes the body’s relationship to gravity into account when manipulating its soft tissue. Gary uses rolfing to ease clients' chronic pain, increase their ranges of motion, and help their bodies gain resilience.
Some people know at an early age what they want to be when they grow up, but it took falling 40 feet out of the sky for a full-grown Clayton Woolley to realize he wanted to be an acupuncturist. Acupuncture restored the ankle he broke while paragliding, and his acupuncturist foretold he would make a career of the practice that had healed him.
At Carlsbad Acupuncture, Clayton Woolley recalibrates energy levels and restores balance to the body's qi using ultrafine acupuncture needles inserted into the skin. This, in turn, helps ease physical ailments such as arthritis, allergies, and ice-cream headache, along with mental maladies including depression, anxiety, and ADHD.
Certified hypnotherapist Lauren Grote draws on a background in psychology to help patients set and achieve goals. She consults with clients at the start of appointments, defining target issues such as anxiety, unwanted pounds, or an addiction to cigarettes. After coaxing them into a deeply relaxed state, she makes suggestions of empowerment and encouragement to be taken in by the subconscious mind. Patients can take home audio recordings of sessions to ponder over later or to play at a dance party.
If Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Cipolone’s more than 20 years of chiropractic experience have taught him one thing, it’s that people hate living with pain.

Founded by Dr. Bill Davis, Breath of Life strives to naturally restore patients' health with a gentle method that focuses on the upper cervical spine (neck) area. Practiced by about 200 doctors worldwide, the technique was developed by NUCCA and eschews traditional popping, cracking, or break-dancing maneuvers in favor of mild pressure that aims to maintain long-term spinal balance. Currently helmed by NUCCA specialist Dr. Joohye Nam, the friendly staff greets patients by name as they arrive to be treated for ailments such as migraines, chronic back pain, and fibromyalgia. In keeping with Breath of Life's community-minded philosophy, the office's caring crew occasionally collects donations for local food banks.
The certified massage therapists at Healing Touch Reflexology draw from Eastern and Western modalities to ease muscle tension and detoxify bodies. To target specific concerns, therapists tailor treatments by consulting with clients before each massage. Reflexology, their signature service, stimulates energy meridians on the feet to mimic acupuncture's healing effect on organ function, preventing the liver from accidentally producing saltwater taffy. Massages take place in candlelit treatment rooms that soothe with water fountains, soft music, and aromatherapy.
