Holistic-health practitioners Lea Decoteau, Karen Moore, and Rosemary Woitowicz firmly believe in the healing power of energy medicine. They select musical pieces for each client and incorporate these into their therapies, all of which are forms of energy medicine. Their techniques are designed to enhance the body's own healing abilities by directing the natural flow of energy. The practitioners may use their own hands or crystals to perform Reiki, integrated energy therapy, shamballa multidimensional healing therapy, and full-spectrum energy medicine. They may also perform manual physical therapy and therapeutic exercise to help clients soothe muscle aches and work out injuries.
Mitchell Wachtel, a doctor of podiatric medicine, has devoted his practice to treating medical and cosmetic imperfections of the foot. Dr. Wachtel's areas of expertise include diabetic and pediatric care, addressing foot issues that arise from poor circulation or improper biomechanics with custom orthotics that prevent long-term damage. Heel pain, whether it arises from plantar fasciitis, arthritis, or stress fractures, is another of Dr. Wachtel's specialties, and he relieves pain by prescribing specialized shoes, performing laser therapy, or imbuing patients with the power of flight. He also uses advanced lasers to treat heel pain and pain caused by Achilles tendonitis.
The licensed massage therapists at Life Healing Spa send stress the way of the corded phone. As far as other things susceptible to knots, staff members take the kinks out of muscles by rendering six Westernized treatments, such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage.

During gua sha, a therapist pressures the skin in strokes with a round-edged instrument to decrease the visibility of small red petechiae, called sha, in two to three days.

Additionally, Kelley performs relaxing Swedish strokes; applies smooth, heated stones during hot-stone massages; and soothes the inner ear of pain and itching with warm wax during ear-coning sessions.
