While stress can run rampant throughout the body, the feet are often the most overworked and the most neglected sites of tension. At Feet Feel Spa, the therapists specialize in using ancient Chinese techniques to alleviate this tension and restore balance and harmony throughout the entire body. Appointments can range from quick 30-minute treatments to indulgent 80-minute escapes. During this time, a therapist will apply gentle amounts of pressure to specific areas along the feet with the goal of releasing blockages in the natural flow of energy. And, although Feet Feel Spa's massages can help people thoroughly relax, the therapists can also attempt to use their skills to alleviate particular ailments or guess clients' shoe sizes with a single glance.
Most of the patients at Family Health and Wellness Clinic suffer from some sort of pain, at least when they arrive. By the time they leave, they’re usually feeling much better thanks to licensed doctor of chiropractic Carlo Gallo, who expertly alleviates discomfort through services including chiropractic adjustments, physical-therapy exercises, and acupuncture. In addition to the doctor himself, the clinic’s team also includes licensed massage therapists who perform various massage techniques customized to clients' needs. Wellness exams allow Dr. Gallo to determine symptoms' underlying causes and recommend the appropriate type of therapy to help clients meet their health goals. In addition to relieving existing symptoms, Dr. Gallo also invests in his client’s long-term health, scheduling nutrition- and lifestyle-counseling sit-downs to prevent small aches from turning into big issues.
