Overseen by Doctor of Chiropractic Kevin Hogan, Health Focus Chiropractic strives to oust vexing ailments from backbones and joints. After a consultation, a doctor gauges backbone health during a meticulous exam, during which they inspect clients' reflexes, posture, turning and bending prowess, and fluency in the dialect of pretzel. If needed, x-rays can then chart where wayward spines have gone awry by scoping for misaligned vertebrae and other symptom sources. A tailored adjustment endeavors to straighten errant disks with precise manual manipulation, which may relieve physiques of chronic pain, loosen knotted tissue, and improve the body's range of motion for a competitive edge in 5K crab-walk marathons.
Planet Beach Contempo Spa takes the hassle out of planning a spa day.

Once clients choose a path, they can explore Relax treatments including massages and sessions with a personal oxygen bar, Renew services such as anti-aging facials or teeth-whitening treatments, or Glow services including UV-free spray tanning or traditional tanning beds for color more natural than a granola bar made from the seeds of tree huggers.
