Doctor of Chiropractic Billie King Shaw and the staff at Armstrong Chiropractic pride themselves on providing advanced pain-relief treatments. One such technique, rapid-release therapy, uses planar waves to break up scar tissue into scar confetti. Once that happens, soft-tissue aches such as muscle spasms, tendinosis, and carpal tunnel syndrome have a good chance of feeling better. Before any treatment is scheduled, Dr. Shaw performs a chiropractic exam and takes x-rays to pinpoint the problem.
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.
A community-based medical clinic, Lake Harbour Medical practices general family medicine, weight-loss assistance, and pain therapy. Designed to help dieters achieve body-size feng shui, Lake Harbour’s weight-loss program kicks off with an overall health assessment, during which waist shrinkers extract important information for drawing up a nutrition plan and assigning appetite-suppressing prescriptions and dietary supplements (an $80 value). Livers get a fat-burning boost with two lipotropic injections that fill bodies with vitamin B12 and Magic Schoolbus alumni (a $40 value). For those who need it, the program also includes four weeks’ worth of Apidex ($40 value), an appetite suppressant meant to help some patients jump-start the pound-shedding process.
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.
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.
