Harnessing SX series microcurrents, the dermal-restoration team at Neurotris targets sagging skin cells on the cellular level. During the 30-minute treatments, technicians apply two hand pieces with four electronically charged metal probes to the surface of the skin. The instruments harness high-definition frequencies, which aim to promote wrinkle reduction, tighten and refine skin, and tone facial muscles loosened after ill-conceived attempts at eradicating wrinkles using high-velocity catapults.
Doctor of Chiropractic John Lee discovered the healing power of chiropractic first-hand after being rear-ended by a drunk driver. The accident introduced him to the horrors of chronic back pain, inspiring him to seek relief from a chiropractor. After undergoing his first-ever chiropractic evaluation and embarking on a course of treatment, Dr. Lee began to not only heal his injuries, but also to correct issues with his withstanding scoliosis—a condition that his traditional medical doctors all but ignored.
Confident in chiropractic’s ability to strengthen the body’s natural defenses and prevent disease, Dr. Lee began his education at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in San Jose, eventually settling in his native Southern California to build a practice centered around overall wellness. Patients can release painful, pent-up stress with relaxing Swedish or targeted trigger-point massages, locate their spinal misalignments with in-depth screenings, or assuage migraines, sciatica, allergies, and digestive problems with adjustments. Through these time-tested techniques, as well as through the use of computerized stress scans and ultrasound therapy, Dr. Lee aims to treat ailments at their sources and holistically heal entire persons, from their minds to their bodies to the aliens living inside their backpacks.

Instead, they call upon chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, and nutritional counseling to liberate patients from numerous ailments, including pinched nerves, headaches, and lower-back pain. Dr. Jung and his staff also engineer corrective exercise programs to motivate patients to continue the healing process and preventative care beyond the clinic.
