Chiropractor and owner of Serene Oasis Dr. Katherine Van Dyke redirects rogue energies with 4,000-year-old acupuncture techniques. Each 60-minute full-body session begins with peaceful zen music that tickles clients’ cochleae as they recline and let worries melt away like timepieces in a Dalí painting. Next, Dr. Van Dyke inserts fine, single-use needles into strategic areas, such as the ear, neck, and back. The placement of the needles can address a variety of conditions, including addictions, indigestion, back pain, and fear of needles. During each session, many patients report little sensation or only slight discomfort, which typically fades once the needle is inserted into the skin. Afterwards, clients may feel energized or relaxed as their newly unblocked chi stretches its legs. Clients can learn more about the session and acupuncture in general by perusing Serene Oasis's frequently asked questions page.

In the process, they develop a new relationship with stress, embracing its power to motivate while jilting its ugly side effects.

To realign the spine and put your bones back in the order prescribed by campfire sing alongs, opt for Swanson's skeleton-shuffling, posture-straightening chiropractic treatment. At the beginning of your session, your chiropractor will perform a full chiropractic exam, checking your muscular scaffolding for any out-of-place pieces and giving your nerve endings a look-see to make sure none of them are being pinched by a crab. Should your interior décor require a closer look, x-rays will be taken as well. When your points of pressure are fully identified, your chiropractor will use hands, or gorilla gloves if they're feeling mischievous, to apply gentle, precise pressure that puts bones back in their rightful places—relieving pressure on any nerves affected by the misalignment and targeting specific conditions, including sciatica, lower back pain, tennis elbow, Wii tennis thumb, and fat Elvis pelvis.
