While visits to Beshel Chiropractic Center could easily be quite brisk—Doctors of Chiropractic John and Tim Beshel can assuage most aches and pains with just a few expert adjustments —this isn't the case. Rather than simply treating patients and sending them on their way, the team of brothers takes the time to educate them about causes of their ailments, giving them greater insight into the effects of gentle, low-force adjusting techniques. To guide these adjustments, the doctors conduct thorough exams and reviews of medical history, which, along with digital x-rays and mind readings, paint a complete picture of each patient and the chiropractic treatment best suited to their complaints.

Although soothing, massages aren’t just for relaxation—their benefits range from increased circulation to injury prevention. Licensed therapist Shannon Hester understands this, tailoring his services to fit the individual needs of his clients. Relying on an arsenal of modalities and techniques, he painstakingly expunges knots and alien probes cleverly disguised as knots. At Wellness Associates of Chapel Hill, Hester works alongside colleagues Duncan McChesney and Kristine Pita, who tap into their massage-therapy backgrounds to rejuvenate clients.
The practitioners at Artists in Motion Massage Therapy see massage as more than a means of relaxation—they see it as a physical medicine that can help people heal and overcome chronic pain. Using Swedish massage as their baseline approach, they customize treatments by drawing upon tools from hot bamboo to infrared-sauna therapy, which eases conditions such as arthritis, adhesions, and being encased in ice by heating the body internally. For clients who would benefit from more in-depth structural alignment, therapists can refer them to Artists in Motion's resident neuromuscular chiropractic physician. Through this meticulous attention to each patient's ailments, therapists uphold the standards of Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals.
Laser Lean’s technicians specialize in two noninvasive contouring technologies: Zerona and Venus Freeze by VenusConcept.

This treatment specifically targets the face to leave cheeks and jawlines smoother than a baby dipped in chocolate.
With the aim of becoming the Ritz-Carlton of dental offices, Dr. Jean Woods and her staff lavish patients with individualized attention and luxurious amenities during aesthetic and general dentistry services. The staff soothes dentist's-office-related anxieties by blocking out sounds with a Bose headphones system or by painlessly warding off discomfort with a computer-operated local anesthetic. To remove plaque, they use a technique called air abrasion, which eschews harsh drills for compressed air. Whether boosting patients' self-confidence with root-canal therapy or performing general check-ups, the staff uses advanced technology, including intraoral cameras and rotary instruments. Dr. Woods keeps her tools sharp by participating in several professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners. She also plays an active role within the community by sponsoring the shadowing program, which welcomes future dentists to explore the field and partake in its after-work foosball tournaments.
