Founded in 1948, the ChiroCenter has succeeded through the decades due in large part to the expertise of their doctors of chiropractic, the ranks of whom now include nine different chiropractors with as much as 35 years of experience. At each of the center's five offices, these doctors alleviate their patients' pain using adjusting techniques whose purposes range from improving biomechanics to reducing nervous-system interference. One such technique is the activator method, a process for fixing subluxations that involves delivering low-force, high-speed thrusts with a handheld instrument that resembles a mini pogo stick or a giant ant pogo stick. These practices treat more than just the back; benefits also include reducing fatigue and improving headaches and sciatica.
At Hope Healing, Isabella and her staff of healers use unconventional techniques to restore faith to those who have experienced a loss. Due to extensive training, their talents encompass a broad scope of modalities, from yoga and meditation to serving as mediums between clients and angels or loved ones who've crossed over. No matter which healing service clients opt for, they'll leave as renewed as a library book they just checked out for the fourth time.
Family Ties' audio-visual wizards transport precious memories from fragile analog formats to resilient CDs and high-capacity DVDs. Family Ties protects the source materials from harm while the staff works, taking the utmost care to transfer the contents while leaving the vessel intact. Film and videotape conversions spring wedding videos and shaky camcorder recordings of the infamous UFO bank robbery of '75 from their native formats for preservation in pristine digital quality. Still photos scroll across screens to musical accompaniment in video photo albums, and audio digitization knocks the dust off old album collections, cataloging tunes for easy playback on CD.
Since art appreciation often requires people to crane their necks to view paintings from a different angle, trips to a gallery don’t usually benefit the spine. But clients don’t come to Ambiente Gallerie just to explore art and its unique design. They come to improve their wellness and enjoy chiropractic care from Doctor of Chiropractic Kari Boudreau. She draws from 14 years of experience to help her clients find relief from nagging health conditions in a modern space designed to engage the mind.
Inside a 100-year-old warehouse space, Dr. Boudreau worked with accomplished architect Ali Heshmati to design a stimulating environment that serves as both an escape and gathering space. Walls of stretched fabric form private treatment areas and can be raised to reveal room to mingle for gallery shows or a new car for studio audiences. Curved boomerang doors bar the way to permanent massage rooms with a clouded material that adds to the practice's intriguing aesthetic.
Ever since childhood, chiropractors Steve Hyjek and Neil Crane have understood the importance of their eventual vocation. A young athlete with a diverse sport record, Dr. Hyjek became familiar with sports medicine, while Dr. Crane, under chiropractic care since birth, received his first adjustment, and an encouraging career push, from his uncle.
At their clinic, the doctors and their staff augment chiropractic exams and adjustments with advanced technologies, measuring variations in heart rate with a pulse wave profiler and muscle asymmetry with a sEMG. Other services include massages, nutritional counseling, and weight-loss programs that improve feelings of well-being while making bodies as svelte as a flattened basketball.
