Dr. Jackson Seim rarely uses the exact same treatments twice. Rather, he customizes each session to the particular temperaments of each unique client's vertebrae. Dr. Seim employs elusive Gonstead chiropractic techniques, which were formulated in 1923 by a mechanical engineer who brought this precise engineer's perspective to the healthy workings of the human spine. In addition to relieving backaches, licensed massage therapist Sarah Schmit administers full massage treatments in the office and chair-based mini-massages in a client's workplace or treehouse.
Dr. Nick Crom's interest in chiropractic medicine began in college, when a quick series of visits to a chiropractor relieved him of chronic nausea that had eluded the testing and prescription drugs of his doctors. Now, motivated by the effects the gentle spinal adjustments had on his own health, Dr. Crom helps alleviate patients' ailments with holistic approaches.
Rather than prescribing drugs to mask a disease's symptoms, Dr. Crom adjusts the spine in a way intended to stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities. Acupuncture, massage therapy, and detox treatments, meanwhile, help to further unlock internal recuperative powers, which can be encumbered by the toxins that accumulate during daily life or attempts to eat top-secret Etch-a-Sketch drawings. His clinic also helps clients shed excess pounds via Lipo-Light treatments, which unleash toxins lodged deep into bodies without needles, pain, or down time.
At Green Chiropractic & Acupuncture, Doctors of Chiropractic Toby Green and Tereshel Johnson form a dynamic duo specializing in the spine and pain management. Because each has specific specialties, they're better able to provide efficient and effective care for their clients, meaning they can spend more time talking to their patients and less time trying to learn everything in the universe that can be known—which is hundreds of things. Having been trained and certified as a specialist in aiding auto-accident victims by the San Diego Spine Institute, Dr. Green's expertise is especially geared toward helping people recover from such physically traumatic events. Dr. Johnson, on the other hand, specializes in therapy and rehabilitation for those suffering from migraines, persistent headaches, and whiplash.
Zac Goodside, the licensed massage therapist behind Z's Massage & Holistic Boutique, helps clients unwind through custom Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and myofascial-release massages. Zac boosts relaxation levels even more with hot stones or aromatic oil add-ons in scents such as lavender and peppermint.
Chiropractic isn't like astrophysics, where any quack with a telescope can set up shop; doctors of chiropractic receive at least four academic years of education and pass national board examinations before receiving their ceremonial telescopes. Dane Becker, D.C., is a graduate of the Texas Chiropractic College, where he logged thousands of classroom hours and developed a work ethic that drives him to enroll in continuing education classes. Perfect for headaches, back pain, neck pain, whiplash, sports injuries, and hand strains from Greco Roman thumb-wrestling matches, treatment at Becker Chiropractic & Acupuncture will leave patrons as limber as a cybernetic super squirrel.
Under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Schrage, the crew at Schrage Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Massage navigate the energetic pathways of the body to electrify clients' vital systems. An electronic meridian imaging (EMI) scan assesses the equilibrium of the body's energy to calibrate the best approach for restoring balance. During the half-hour acupuncture session, the client reclines as hair-thin needles plunge beneath skin surfaces to redirect the flow of corporal chi, or vital energy, uprooting blockages and filling in potholes. Redirected energy flow may improve respiratory and neurological conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and sense of direction when lost in a large suburban mall.
