Carol S. Hickman started practicing massage therapy in 1993, but it wasn’t until 1995 that she really saw the full effect her skills could have on others. After the Oklahoma City bombing, she used her knack for healing to bring the victims physical and mental peace. The satisfaction of helping others—and to see their faces fade from tortured to pain-free—is what has kept Hickman in this career path for nearly 20 years.
Her treatment repertoire includes hot-stone and therapeutic massages meant to soothe muscles and stiff necks, and zen body therapy, which uses high-intensity energy treatments similar to rolfing to straighten the spine, similar to those used to roll out an old, dry piece of play-doh. Hickman also extends her services to animals with arthritis and to infants, focusing on instilling good posture when children’s bones are the most pliable.
Doctor of Chiropractic Marcus Favorite adheres to the traditional chiropractic philosophy: to help the body heal itself. At Favorite Chiropractic, he aims to accomplish this goal by freeing the brain-body communication that can become disrupted by out-of-position vertebrae or really tight shirt collars. Disks can occasionally slip, limiting the spinal cord’s ability to transmit signals to the muscles and organs and causing illness. During adjustments, the doctor applies careful pressure to strategically shift these disks back into place, thereby triggering the body’s natural healing processes. Dr. Favorite’s sure hands and gentle disposition can help alleviate a range of ailments for patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
