At Seminole Chiropractic Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Karl Lewin treats ailing backs and necks that cause strain on his patients' everyday lives.

At Altamonte Springs Body Contouring, technicians overseen by the medical director, Doctor of Chiropractic Ken Ross, firm and tighten faces and bodies without resorting to surgery. First, clients undergo an in-depth one-on-one consultation that determines how to custom tailor their treatments. They might qualify for a face-lifting microcurrent facial, a skin-sloughing microdermabrasion, or a collagen-boosting and tightening ultrasound or radio-frequency facial. Clients might also get an ultrasonic fat-reduction treatment designed to help clients to lose weight without dieting excessively or pushing their car to work every morning. The technicians track each client's progress throughout their treatments. The treatments are noninvasive and require no downtime.
Whether inside the spa or on location, Spa Deals On Wheels pampers clients with massages, facials, and mani-pedis.

When Kristina Bauer—a yoga veteran with 20 years of experience and 1,000 classes under her mat—opened Yoga Synergy Spa, she wanted to create a space that felt more like a home than a gym or a corporate chain. Today, her studio glows with her own homemade candles while yogis lead guests through various styles of yoga, including heated Vinyasa flow, Hatha yoga for all levels, and a class that invites kids and their parents to stretch together. In addition to its group session, the studio embraces its spa side with massage therapy that complements Kristina’s pursuit of peacefulness in the same way that playing Marco Polo can add a little fun to a shark attack. An on-location retail shop stocks yoga mats, homemade natural soaps, and veggie candles.
The chiropractic practice’s licensed staff helps heal spinal problems and promotes full-body wellness through exams, adjustments, and massage therapy. Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan Berns—second-generation chiropractor and former University of Illinois football player—leads the team at Integrative Physical Medicine as they use computerized diagnostic technology to pinpoint and treat pain. This equipment includes Digital Motion X-rays for movement-based imaging and a Vax-D system, which is a specialized procedure that offers a nonsurgical way to treat lower-back pain and herniated discs. Using multiple modalities to alleviate aches, an onsite licensed massage therapist consults with clients who can help identify exact locations of discomfort by shouting out their coordinates.
