Before opening OC Salt Therapy, Robert Condraschi spent sleepless nights listening to and worrying about the labored breathing of his 2-year-old son Constantin. After visiting dozens of doctors, all of whom offered different diagnoses for Constantin?s ailments, it became clear that surgery was the last viable treatment plan. Before agreeing to invasive measures, Robert and his son booked a trip to the Eastern European salt mines. Within days of basking in the therapeutic chamber, Constantin?s breathing grew steadier, and he slept through the night for the first time in years.
Now, OC Salt Therapy?s founders strive to spark similar recoveries in clients of all ages. They have coated three rooms from floor to ceiling in pure, untreated salt, and each room houses a halogenerator that disperses microscopic particles of salt through the air. In the adult room, clients recline on chaise lounges and listen to soothing music. In the children?s room, tykes can tinker with toys, help sentient salt shakers write letters to forlorn pepper grinders, or watch DVDs on flat-screen TVs as parents supervise through the glass door for kids 10 and up, or inside the room for those under 10.
Doctors of Chiropractic?and twin brothers?Daniel and David Clements share more in common than their parents, looks, and sentence halves; the two doctors also share the same philosophy on holistic health. Inspiration set in while attending Augsburg College on hockey scholarships, where the Canadian natives noticed the chiropractic treatments they were receiving helped keep them healthy and injury free. Experiencing this proactive approach to wellness motivated the duo to forego their premed path and pursue a chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences instead.
At Twins Chiropractic, the brothers work with clients to find the most beneficial treatment plan, whether through regular adjustments, massages, or both. They also pack their website with informational resources to help patients make informed decisions or wile away the hours on a deserted beach.
Dr. Khanh Tran and his staff operate under a simple premise: the structure of the body determines its function. Dr. Tran keeps this in mind as he runs his hands along his clients? spines, looking for the telltale subluxations and slipped disks that may signal any number of physical issues. Though these issues run the gamut from chronic discomfort to a freely rotating head, the chiropractic staff consistently relies on an approach that triggers the body?s recuperative abilities with natural, drug-free therapies. The multidisciplined team works as a single unit, combining acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling in a program anchored by the doctor?s chiropractic adjustments.

Their system of intense functional exercises can be scaled to all of them. It's so adaptable, in fact, that one student could be focusing on a completely different regimen from another student during the same class. To create ideal fitness, class leaders change up routines every day, which also keeps boredom from creeping in.
