When his painful plantar fasciitis made surgery an almost certain necessity, Doctor of Chiropractic Carl Rafey sought help from a chiropractor. To his surprise, he was able to find relief without an invasive procedure, a twist of fate that propelled him into the doctorate program at Logan College of Chiropractic. Doctor of Chiropractic AJ Evans had a similar experience, which brought them together at Rafey Chiropractic.
Now, the doctors soothe muscles and work to improve general health with technology and a mastery of chiropractic techniques. After they examine clients' spines and test clients’ ability to turn, bend, and touch their toes without reciting nursery rhymes, they nudge vertebrae into place and offer helpful tips about nutrition and exercise. Massage therapists also aid guests with relaxation and therapeutic techniques.
The experienced stylists and aestheticians of From Head To Toe Salon and Spa showcase patrons’ natural beauty through a variety of hair, nail, waxing, and facial treatments. Every session begins with a complimentary cup of joe, which awakens senses before specialists subdue them once again from the salon’s lineup of plush treatment chairs or secluded massage tables. Warm mahogany and ginger tones surround the smoothing, styling, and tension-eliminating services, encouraging patrons to let go of stresses like a therapy session inside an arcade claw machine.
Though they’re not on the beaches of Florida, Palm Beach Massage’s staff aims to inspire the same sort of relaxation in their clients. They do so with a full slate of massage styles that range from hot-stone therapy, to deep-tissue massage, to geriatric massage, which can help restore mobility to stiff joints. Under the supervision of Chiropractor Tariq Arif of the Back and Pain Rehab Center, therapists also perform chiropractic massage to soothe chronic pain or pain caused by injuries.
At Back and Pain Rehab Center, Dr. Tariq Arif draws from 14 years of experience to alleviate chronic pain through chiropractic care. Along with his trained staff, he massages away tension and extracts aches hiding inside joints using therapeutic, hot-stone, and deep-tissue techniques. He also leads weight-loss workshops that address back pain in heavier people and can help to guard against other weight-related ailments such as diabetes and heart disease.
Enlighten Spa's personalized massages lie somewhere on the treatment spectrum between the deep-tissue and Swedish modalities. Of course, the specific techniques employed by therapists depend on what issues are troubling each individual client, such as stress or pain. The staff's expertise also extends to nailcare and body treatments, including eyelash extensions, waxing, and detoxifying wraps.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.
