The massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage balance yin and yang with traditional Chinese massage methods, including the diverse tactics of Tui-Na. During an hour of Tui-Na, practitioners knead away rigidity using a choice of light or heavy pressure and organic, hypoallergenic lotion mixed from jojoba, shea butter, cloud down, and sesame oil. Massage mavens stroke, tap, and perform acupressure on muscles with qi gong techniques to help to reverse the progress of pain or extra toe growth. Customers may request either a male or female massage therapist when booking their appointment.
At Stamps Chiropractic, Dr. Wes Stamps and his team of specialists dish out doses of relaxation via a variety of massage-therapy treatments. During 30-minute hydro massages, clients remain completely clothed and completely dry atop a specialized bed. As powerful waves of water deliver heated, soothing strokes to targeted areas, a user-friendly touch screen encourages further customization with peaceful videos and a relaxing soundtrack that includes music and the tranquil call of howler monkeys.
Licensed spine refiner Doctor of Chiropractic Tiffany Curley fuses her expertise with advanced technologies to help her patients manage mechanical problems and reach their health goals. This Groupon encompasses two office visits. The 60-minute initial session includes a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological exam and consultation, including a patient-history intake, evaluation of vitals in a full-range motion checkup, blood-pressure reading, and test counting most consecutive backflips in one minute (a $101 value). Afterward, if the doctor deems them necessary, x-rays (a $189 value) articulate the body's skeletal framework, showing any signs of misalignment or degeneration. During the second visit, Dr. Curley reports the exam's findings, which inform her suggestions for a treatment plan as well as a 30-minute hands-on adjustment (a $75 value) and guitar lesson.
Regardless of the doctor of chiropractic you see—Hollis Helms at United Chiropractic or Brad Cudnik or Keith Taylor at Pecan Valley Chiropractic—you’ll certainly be in practiced hands. Though they have more than 60 years of combined experience as chiropractors, the trio spends ample time refining their craft in postgraduate courses and training. Their treatment techniques vary slightly by office and include traditional spinal adjustments, decompression, massage, and therapeutic exercises, such as swimming in a pool full of aromatherapy oils.
Working with patients of all ages, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Williams plies his healing touch to the uppermost two vertebrae of the spine—the point where the skull meets the neck. Here, the atlas joint floats freely, which allows the head to swivel in all directions, but it can easily slide out of place. Through careful examinations and subsequent gentle adjustments, he realigns this area in attempt to remove pressure from the spinal cord, which allows the body to heal itself.
As a former linebacker for the Tennessee Titans and college wrestler, Dr. Brock Stratton knows where the body is apt to get injured. He devotes his practice to alleviating and preventing injuries with a spectrum of modern chiropractic techniques, such as kinesio taping, whole-body cryotherapy, and therapeutic exercises.
But he doesn’t carry out these techniques in some small, single-room chiropractor’s office. His office is located within Steven Stratton Physical Therapy, whose expansive exercise space contains cardio and weight equipment alongside comfortable treatment tables.
