The technicians work thoroughly and efficiently, and hand over results within a few days.
From the soothing cornflower-blue walls to the children’s play area, it’s clear that the team at Estero Family Chiropractic wants you to feel comfortable and welcome. Instead of vials of medicine, scalpels, or shockingly cold stethoscopes, the doctors rely on their hands and patients’ bodies to bring about health and relief from pain. They achieve this feat by first tracking down the source of pain with exams and x-rays, and then correcting issues with noninvasive spinal adjustments.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers of Estero's physicians, nurses, and counselors work together to help customers attain their personal weight-loss goals.

They then recommend a custom weight-management plan to help clients shed pounds healthily.

After the one-hour therapy, Renee will lead newly balanced bodies through a coaching session to help them recognize and eliminate causes of physical stress, such as bad posture and Gilbert Godfrey ringtones—leading to a path of renewed purpose and well-being.

Eyes Wide Open takes a holistic approach to health: its soothing massages relax the body, its yoga classes clear the mind, and its reiki healing sessions balance the spirit. The roster of massage styles skews toward Eastern methods, as massage therapists perform therapeutic strokes developed in ancient China during medical qi gong and apply pressure using both their arms and legs during Thai massages. Three different yoga instructors, each with their own specialty, demonstrate poses in the center's hardwood-floored studio. Based on the belief that energy blockages are the ultimate cause of physical pain, the clinic's reiki healing treatments preserve the flow of qi to the body the way laws against building a personal Grand Canyon preserve the flow of cash to the Arizona Tourism Bureau.
