Certified kneading extraordinaire Tom Collins of New Dimensions dims the lights, infuses the air with relaxing music, and unties knots of tension with therapeutic massage techniques. Customers can hop on the gently heated, articulated table for a Swedish massage, which smothers the body in essential oils and banishes general aches and pains through long rolling strokes and percussive interpretations of classic rock ballads. Bodies with specific injuries or pains bask in the orthopedic massage, which addresses target areas to help promote natural self-healing. Using orthopedic stretches and resisted lengthening techniques, the orthopedic massage aims to release contracted muscles, decreasing recovery time after arm-wrestling the inner rods of a cotton-candy maker. For $10, customers may upgrade to cold-laser therapy or a medicupping treatment, which harnesses the vacuuming power of plastic cups for a variety of therapeutic purposes.

Dr. Carol Wright-Smith and Dr. Dale Smith spread their chiropractic wizardry—developed in the Palmer College of Chiropractic—across two offices located in Cordova and Oakland. When they're not treating vertebral subluxations with adjustments, on-site x-rays, or cervical-traction sessions, the two enjoy wearing hats made of counterfeit cheese and rooting for the Green Bay Packers. Each Smith Chiropractic Clinic location also houses licensed massage therapists, who are extensively trained to pamper guests with full-body, chair, hot-stone, and prenatal massages.
