Upon first walking in, a visitor to Hanczaryk Chiropractic Neurology Group might not guess that they were in a medical clinic. The jewel-toned walls and soft lighting channel the stylish tranquility of a spa, but that's the point. "I wanted it to be like a retreat," said Doctor of Chiropractic Christine Hanczaryk in the Grand Blanc View, "so patients felt like they could come in here and stay.? As a second-generation chiropractor, Dr. Hanczaryk's design choice comes from decades of experience in and around the healing profession, and she knows making clients feel comfortable is of the utmost importance. The staff includes Dr. Hanczaryk, Sr., who lends his expertise on treating back and neck pain, and a crew of massage therapists. They even have a therapy dog named Czar, who offers his calming presence to help reduce patients' stress and his pager number to those with after-hours healthcare questions.
At Infinity Health Care Center, Steven Otte and his staff administer massages that are carefully tailored to each client's unique aches and pains. Otte specializes in myofascial release, a modality focused on the body's network of connective tissue, or fascia. The technique can help restore lost range of motion by releasing any stiffness caused by inflammation, injury, or accidentally bathing in hairspray. Other massage styles range from intense deep tissue massage to reflexology, which can alleviate back pain while strengthening immune systems.
Led by Dr. Linda Lawrence, the medical professionals at Skin Renewal Clinic perform an assortment of anti-aging treatments within the tranquil ambience of Summerset Salon Day Spa. Following a thorough assessment of the skin's needs, Dr. Lawrence and her registered nurse, Susan Mangapora, can diminish wrinkles with Botox or dermal fillers, and medical skin and laser technician Joan Gegg may use intense pulsed-light therapy to rejuvenate skin, remove hair, banish spider veins, and add dramatic effect to campfire stories. In addition to employing physician-grade products during in-office chemical peels, the team can make recommendations for at-home maintenance routines and point patrons toward products suited to their specific skin type.
