At Backs in Motion ChiroSpa, Dr. Williams and his staff aren’t just concerned with their clients’ physical health, but also their mental well-being. They pair expert chiropractic services with relaxing spa sessions to whittle away stress and tension from the outside in. Dr. Williams works to treat conditions ranging from arthritis to carpal tunnel syndrome and persistent headaches with his spinal-adjustment methods. He then turns clients over to his massage therapists and aestheticians for a full-on pampering in the spa with services such as bliss-inducing hot-stone massages or facials.

A burbling waterfall wall and live palm fronds welcome clients to the earth-toned oasis of Elk Grove Massage29. Before beginning any session, the spa’s licensed therapists consult with clients to determine the best massage for their needs; it could be Swedish strokes to slake general stress or hot stones to melt away tension and determine which extremities are really just frozen burritos. The therapists also specialize in hot-pack massage, which uses grain-filled pouches that are heated to 170–180 degrees in order to release tension and increase flexibility.
Founded on the idea that guests are "treated as royalty," DQ Salon, short for Drama Queen, fields a staff of stylists that crafts new hairstyles atop clients, whose reflection is already festooned with giant, iron crowns that rest above salon mirrors. Using natural and organic products and Rapunzel's self-help book, the salon’s experts trim tresses, change hues, remove unwanted stubble, and meticulously groom fingers and toes with hair and nail services.
Elk Grove natives Frank and Kelly Ross opened Sol? Salon & Spa to be a one-stop shop for beauty and calm. On one side, stylists clip and color hair, while across the room a massage therapist works out kinks in muscles and overworked pinky toes. The shop?s boutique stocks a selection of gifts and accessories crafted by local artisans.
