As an avid outdoorsman, Christopher Duffey has taken his share of bumps and bruises. He's dislocated his shoulder three times, broken his collar bone, and was once paralyzed from his neck to his hip. But instead of slowing him down, these experiences have only strengthened his resolve to learn new ways to help others recover from illness and sports-related injuries.
Today, Christopher is a wellness triple-threat?a holistic healer, massage therapist, and certified personal trainer. At Phoenix Alternative Therapies, he draws on these skills during cupping sessions, pressure point therapy, and more than 12 types of massages, including trigger point therapy and acupressure. Additionally, he can also perform a movement assessment, during which, he checks basic movement patterns to help identify how likely a person is to injure themselves or develop a chronic case of dance fever.
Friendliness is one of the primary values at Laser MD MedSpa, which also incorporates beauty and science into the services it offers. There, a welcoming, board-certified doctor accompanied by medical staff supervises treatments that revivify appearances from scalp to heel.

Other services offered include Botox, Velashape II, cellulite reduction, iLipo ULTRA, skin therapies, Vaser Shape, and IPL photofacial. All machines are FDA-approved.

Revolution Bodywork opened with the goal of bringing affordable natural healthcare solutions to the whole community. Because treatments and services can be too expensive for many to use as often as they need it, Revolution offers all of its treatments on a sliding scale, allowing clients to choose what they can afford to pay.
These treatments include a separate community acupuncture clinic, nutritional consultations, and massage and bodywork. During community-acupuncture sessions, which take place in a group setting, the practitioner targets various acupoints with tiny needles that stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Traditional sports and orthopedic massages work alongside craniosacral therapy to relieve pain and enhance emotional well-being. With all these healthcare solutions, Revolution’s wellness experts have seen success in treating a variety of different problems, such as back pain and migraines.
