Helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Jason Watson, Active Health & Wellness's staff of massage therapists, chiropractors, and cryotherapists administers a host of holistic solutions to improve health ailments. After founding the practice as Active Chiropractic in 2006, Dr. Watson revised the name to reflect the broader range of services offered. In addition to traditional spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and decompression treatments, the team helps patients manage their weight with physical exams, nutrition advice, and vitamin supplements. The cryotherapy treatments—as featured on The Dr. Oz Show—promote full-body wellness by placing patients in a spacious, open-ceilinged cryotherapy chamber, wherein a frigid mist of nitrogen cools the skin, jump-starting the body's natural healing process and ability to empathize with snowmen.
Acrylic sculpted nails, hair extensions such as heat fusion, beads, and on the scalp, and Brazilian blowouts. These are just a few of the signature beauty treatments licensed cosmetologist and beauty expert Kim Gilbertson is certified to perform. For the past 10 years, Kim has revamped men and women with everything from cuts and color treatments to real human-hair extensions. Yet, she doesn’t stop at the obvious elements—she also lengthens and volumizes lashes with synthetic, mink, or polyester extensions and adds semi-permanent mascara for lower lashes lasting for roughly two weeks.
Jody Tulloch and her team of massage therapists address tension on all fronts with massage therapy and invigorating spa services. Clients recline across heated tables that are cushioned by layers of padding as a therapist gently relaxes stiff spines, using coconut oil and grapeseed oil to glide their trained hands over areas of tension and harnessing essential oils to boost relaxation ease tenderness. During hot-stone massages, toasted basalt river rocks send heat deep into muscles, allowing tendons to warm up their vocal cords and quietly yodel. For those with TMJ, headaches, and sinus problems, Tulloch herself uses specialized techniques to ease the pain of these stubborn ailments. Body scrubs soften skin while infusing it with scents such as raspberry champagne or chocolate, and airbrush spray-tanning sessions tint bodies with a summery hue. Once clients emerge peaceful and relaxed from their private treatment rooms, they can prolong the experience by purchasing custom-blended essential oils to take home.
Though surrounded by massive medical equipment, patients can feel at home at Vein Center of Idaho. This is due to it’s staff of physicians, who take the time to make sure each patient feels cared for and comfortable—even supplying warm blankets when needed. Before going into a treatment room for a MRI, CT scan, or digital mammography, guests can relax in the front lounge amid televisions and complimentary coffee and snacks. Kids can also be entertained in a designated play area, which features a hand painted mural filled with treasures to spot.
The learned team of doctors and therapists at Avanti Health assuage chronic discomfort, pain from personal injury, and other health conditions with chiropractic and massage services.

Fully dedicated to patrons' overall wellness, the staff also helps patrons shed excess pounds with programs for medical weight loss, dieting, and exercise.
Clients belly-flop onto a cushy massage bed and get their backs kneaded, unknotted, and rolled, alleviating any stress caused by workplace pressures, a busy home life, or hectic careers herding cats with drivers' licenses. Therapists also specialize in deep-tissue and injury-recovery treatments, with spine serenading upgrades available for an additional fee.
