Dr. Billie King Shaw and the friendly staff at Armstrong Chiropractic seek out stress strongholds with adrenal tests and apply deep-tissue massage techniques to free limbs from their tormentors. A thorough consultation involving two to three specialized assessments analyzes spinal states to determine areas of concern and to identify evidence of injury from common activities such as raking leaves or juggling rakes. Dr. Shaw then investigates adrenal glands for signs of invaders that might be causing discomfort in the form of chronic fatigue, arthritis, or high blood pressure. Once pinpointed, tension becomes the target of a deep-tissue massage, with deft digits dedicating attention to specific areas of concern as specialized strokes delve below superficial layers to relieve stress in connective tissues and fascia. As residual aches fade, the therapeutic kneading can result in improved posture and an expanded range of motion, freeing bodies to once again respond appropriately to boxes that need lifting by pointing to someone else.
At Body In Balance Healthcare, Doctor of Chiropractic Laura Stubbs keeps her ailing patients far from unnecessary drugs and surgery. Instead, she takes a holistic approach to healing sciatica, lower-back pain, headaches, and auto injuries. When treating patients from infants to senior citizens, Dr. Stubbs employs chiropractic adjustments to gently eliminate pressure on the vertebrae. She also supports strained muscles with SpiderTech kinesiology taping therapy. Body in Balance also offers relaxing 30- and 60-minute massages, which use the client's preferred method of gentle Swedish strokes, deep-tissue kneads, or tap-dancing across their backs while juggling hot stones to relieve pressure and pain.
Chiropractors Doctors of Chiropractic David N. Tullos and Antoinette M. Mayers correct an array of symptom-aggravating imbalances. X-rays, neurological tests, and orthopedic tests diagnose potential issues. Instead of relying on drugs, surgery, and TV doctors, chiropractors address these findings with adjustments and therapeutic exercises. The duo have outfitted their website with a host of educational resources so patients can familiarize themselves with chiropractic's holistic approach.
For nearly 20 years, our objective has been to help our patient in every aspect of their health. From lower back pain to headaches and disc bulges to weight loss and exercise rehabilitation. Modern equipment are combinations of traditional and modern techniques utilized for best results in the shortest possible time.
The Clinic doesn't just build muscles—it rebuilds them, too. As part of Action Chiropractic, the small fitness studio specializes in a marriage of therapeutic exercises and dynamic workouts for functional strength. A physician remains on hand at all times to oversee these efforts, whether members are striving to overcome a back condition, lose weight, or boost their athletic performance.
Classes range from Pilates Reformer sessions, which strengthen the core and promote healthy spinal alignment, to a mix of TRX-suspension training and spinning. Instructors adjust their exercises to meet the needs of each client and can tailor workouts to address injuries and symptoms of muscular imbalance. Personal trainers, meanwhile, can engineer a unique private program based on desired goals. The same emphasis on customization guides three types of doctor-supervised weight-loss plans, all of which rely on long-term dietary solutions and exercise instead of quick fixes such as supplements or insults directed at your favorite chocolatier.
Led by Leslie Jetton Tullos, 1994's Miss Mississippi USA, Beautiful Image of Jackson's skilled technicians help clients to maintain a youthful look with fusions of microcurrent technology and elastin therapy, free of the pain associated with surgery or injections. Treatments infuse the skin with gentle microcurrents—set to a level similar to the body's natural electrical current to keep from tripping cellular fuse-boxes—that work to improve circulation, hydrate skin, and draw an elastin-boosting serum to the deepest layers of the epidermis.
Each session helps to lift and tone muscles and aid in the reduction of fat, cellulite, and stretch marks. Unencumbered by any downtime, patients bound back home or to the office without any redness, ready to flaunt amplified loveliness in their next snapshots or family daguerreotypes.
It's quiet in Aqua the Day Spa. No cell phones or pagers are allowed to remain active in either of the two locations, so all you hear is your pulse slowing to a steady, soothing beat and the tiny noises made as expert hands open bottles of designer beauty products. Open since 1998, owners Susan and Ralph Barnette struck the right, Enya-like chord in 2003, when they first earned the title of Best Day Spa in the Jackson Free Press's annual "Best Of" roundup. The team of aestheticians and massage therapists have swept that title every year since, deflating the competition in proportion to lifting spirits. Paraben-free Skin Authority and scented Tokyomilk tonics nourish skin with vitamin-rich Moroccan clay and soothing mango, or exfoliate dead cells with bamboo salves scented with ylang-ylang. The staff's nimble hands blend these into custom treatments, including those to combat aging and the strange shadows creeping over men's skin, and work aromatherapeutic elixirs into muscles with nine different massage modalities. OPI and Shellac nail polish transform hands and feet into fashion accessories, a project helped along by smoothing wax.
