Chiropractic care is Dr. Wesley Hohman's anti-drug. Rather than prescribing medications, he uses spinal adjustments and other drug-free approaches, such as rehabilitative exercises, to treat his client's ailments and prevent future ones. He tailors his treatment plans to the client at hand, working to alleviate all manner of issues, including back and neck pain, by balancing the nervous system. To complement chiropractic care, he and his team also offer nutritional guidance, helping clients feel healthy without only eating foods shaped like orthopedic chairs.

Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Kersenbrock is one of a handful of practitioners in the Orlando area to be full-body certified in Active Release Techniques (ART), a blend of stretching and massage that evicts deep-seated scar tissue to improve mobility and pain. While Kersenbrock is always keen to learn new adjustment methods—like a tax accountant scoring a baseball game—he still relies on classic techniques such as diversified, Gonstead, and extremity manipulation. The massage therapists on staff complement his work with muscle kneading sessions, reflexology, and trigger point target practice.
At Majestic Skin and Massage, it’s all about individuality. The team of massage therapists and aestheticians believes that no two people share identical skin types or muscular tension, and thus, no two people should receive identical facials or massages. Clients can pick from an extensive lineup of facials geared toward specific facial concerns, such as wrinkles, acne, or sensitive skin, before the aesthetician further customizes the treatment to fit the client’s unique skin type. Similarly, four massage modalities, including Thai, therapeutic, and chair massage, converge to root out kinks with tailored strokes that render each muscle softer than a pillow stuffed with smaller pillows.
The fact that the staff at Ecco Nails & Spa specialize in nail treatments doesn’t mean that they forget their designation as a spa. Ecco's staff add pampering elements to even the most basic services, including warm herbal soaks, hot-stone massages, heated towel wraps and clay and chocolate masks. Tucked away in private treatment rooms, aestheticians perform facials, during which they slather façades with gentle Dermalogica products, which are customizable to each client’s skin type and favorite flavor of pie. Out on the nail floor, beneath the glow of golden sconces, technicians show off their skills by meticulously painting nails using OPI polish and CND Shellac, which resists chips for up to 14 days.
