Father and son team Drs. Joseph T. and Salvatore A. Garofalo diagnose and treat pedal problems with laser treatments and surgical procedures.

Paul Brown loves to help people. For more than 20 years, he administered family support services, including food and housing, to impoverished people. He also managed youth organizations and worked as a therapist at the time. All this fueled his desire to help those in need, and so in 1999, he decided to pursue a certification in craniosacral therapy, accruing more than 1,500 hours of craniosacral experience along the way.
Paul uses the therapy to help alleviate back pain, sinus pressure, digestive problems, stress, and chronic aches. With gentle pressures, he strategically redirects the body’s flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which, when imbalanced, can lead to the central nervous system misfiring and causing pain. Craniosacral therapy optimizes health by decompressing the body and helping restore a natural, balanced flow. Paul is so effective at what he does that he teaches classes in craniosacral therapy throughout the west coast as well as in Canada and the lost city of El Dorado.

At Headlines & Company, savvy stylists wield products from lines such as Moroccanoil, Pureology, Keratin Complex, and DNA CryoStem Cell Therapy to color and coif tresses and pamper visages within a building steeped in history. The salon's wavy terra-cotta roof tiles, bubbling patio fountain, and cathedral wood beam supporting an elegant chandelier emphasize the Spanish roots of a building that used to be Charlie Chaplin’s Flying A Studio, according to the salon. Its 50-foot walls continue the tradition of supporting art by exhibiting work from local artists, which, like a lazy Tasmanian devil, rotates every three months.

The center’s doctor duo—medical specialist, Dr. Scott Saunders and naturopathic expert, Dr. Kristi Wrightson—investigate patient’s individual concerns and forego solutions such as anti-depressants, pain-killers, or spoonfuls of Nutella for discovering and correcting the underlying problem. Waving a natural medicine flag, the center’s herbalist, acupuncturist, and nutritionist treat clients with a slew of health services—including dietary counseling, metabolic testing, and Reiki therapy—to lead bodies to health from the inside out.
