For more than four decades, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen Moore has been seeking out the latest available treatments for his patients. He has put these cutting-edge techniques to work in about 20,000 cases at Moore Chiropractic Family Wellness Clinic, often using DTS spinal-decompression therapy, a gentle process designed to separate bulging discs. In addition to relieving back pain through routine adjustments, Dr. Moore addresses health issues such as fibromyalgia, allergies, sciatica, and headaches, and targets soft-tissue injuries with ultrasound therapy or electrical muscle stimulation. Dr. Moore is also an advocate of the Advanced BioStructural Correction (ABC) method, which holds that the body is a partially self-correcting mechanism.
Some grandfathers teach their grandkids checkers or how to cut the beetroot for the perfect borscht. Amy’s taught her how to give a proper shoulder massage.

Bella Vita Massage Therapy owner and licensed massage therapist Stephanie Swango calls upon the skills she picked up at Dayton School of Medical Massage to soften and soothe muscles. To maximize the therapeutic benefits of each session, she encourages clients to arrive a few minutes early so that a brief consultation and prep does not interfere with the duration of the treatment. After clients lie down on her massage table, she pores over their muscles with a relaxing Swedish massage, which induces relaxation, or deep-tissue massage, which utilizes focused pressure and stretching to relieve the soreness that typically comes from wrestling with a bungee cord.

Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.
