With more than a decade of natural-healing experience and certification as an Usui Shiki Ryoho reiki master, Mary Lee is well versed in the power of medicine-free healing. Reiki works to help heal the body and mind by bringing energy levels into balance through the power of touch. For Mary, the goal of this process is to minimize both physical and emotional stresses. Typically an hour long, her sessions involve a quick chat to determine known issues and problems before she moves her hands across the body to distribute energy.
Deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Swedish massage are just a few of the modalities that therapists perform at VA Health Massage. They also offer medical massage, a technique designed to treat conditions diagnosed by a medical doctor, which focuses only on injured areas. To further relaxation, any massage can be enhanced with aromatherapy and hot towels or by politely asking all ghosts to leave the room.
Doctor of Chiropractic Milan Lassiter, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and a certified chiropractic sports physician, employs an array of techniques to realign backbones and improve flexibility. He specializes in treating sports injuries, soft-tissue problems, and back and neck conditions such as herniated discs and a lack of a backbone.
Dr. Lassiter soothes squished spines and oppressed pinched nerves with a computerized decompression table, which gives vertebrae some wiggle room and beckons fluids back to where they belong. While treating athletes, dancers, musicians, or anyone with tightness and tension, he uses the active-release technique to mend abnormal tissues and return them to the wild. Similarly, the Graston technique employs six stainless-steel instruments that Dr. Lassiter glides along strained sinews to uncover damaged areas and prevent scar tissue from forming. He also uses elastic cotton strips, known as Kinesio tape, to reduce swelling, stabilize joints, relieve pain, and subdue loose lips.
A dual-modality health-care clinic, Hawthorne Healing Arts integrates the naturopathic remedies of Craig T. Fasullo, ND, and the Chinese medicine of Maegan N. Hodge, LAc.

Through naturopathic medicine, Fasullo aims to reinforce the body's self-sufficiency with homeopathic treatments and nutritional counseling. Hodge, meanwhile, draws from broad training in herbalism and acupuncture to address a long list of ailments, from allergies to chronic pain.

Named Best Chiropractor by Style Weekly, Advanced Wellness Centre’s spine whisperers coax errant discs and uncooperative vertebrae back into proper alignment, fighting poor posture and pain. The first visit includes a comprehensive chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurologic exam and a set of x-rays, if necessary, to unveil misshapen spines or inter-rib bunny ears, as well as a detailed muscle analysis. Patients then return for a soothing second session that includes a 60-minute chiropractic massage, when a certified therapist will expertly remove knots from muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. Post-pampering, clients meet with a health care provider to discuss the previous visit’s test results and chart a course of frame-correcting care.
