Licensed chiropractor Dr. Nathan Stewart, of the eponymous Stewart Family Chiropractic, realigns corpuses and alleviates ailments including back pain, sleep trouble, and headaches. A 60-minute therapeutic massage kneads rigid muscles into lithe, limber appendage movers as stress beats a hasty retreat and tense tissues relax. During a chiropractic exam, the friendly physician runs a slew of tests to get a feel for which kinds of spine-refurbishing techniques would best get bodies into straighter shape or would help to relieve migraines, sciatica, or sleeping problems. If necessary, x-rays get a sneak peak into the spine's inner workings and assess skeletons for future careers as dancing skeletons.
Inside Relax Ave Day Spa, eight massage tables and 10 foot-massage chairs welcome guests to put their feet up and relax as licensed massage therapists knead away uncomfortable knots and tension.

Warmed stones and essential oils can be added to help melt stress or moisturize the skin, and side-by-side tables are available to accommodate friends, couples, or belay climbers.
