For more than 30 years, patients have come to Green Mountain Chiropractic and Massage for pain relief and a boost in their overall health. But before offering any treatments, Dr. Mark Wolff, D.C. or his team of specialists work with clients to understand their concerns and create a customized treatment plan that targets their needs. They then realign spines with traditional adjustments and perform advanced treatments such as computer-controlled spinal decompression and deep-tissue laser therapy, which stimulates healing on a cellular level.
Dr. Wolff, D.C. also specializes in holistic healing methods. As a certified acupuncturist, he has performed thousands of treatments over the years, using traditional fine-tipped needles or, alternatively, laser beams to relieve bodies of a variety of aliments.

Rae Marie bases her business, Rae of Light Aromatherapy Massage, on the use of scented oils. In a candid essay, she explains why: as a teenager, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Rae spent her high-school years cycling between different medications and inpatient programs, but continued to feel mired in negative emotions?when she didn't feel like a "walking vegetable," that is.
In 1993, something changed. Rae's mom, an alternative healer, was enrolled in a course on essential oils. When Rae reluctantly accompanied her mom to class, she intended to sleep through it. But by the end of the lecture, the soothing scent of an oil called "joy" had put her mind at ease, and as the duo smelled it in the car, they found it facilitated communication between them. Over the next few months, Rae learned more about oils, eventually stopping her medication and leaving the hospital to focus in on a new path in life. Today, at her massage clinic, she helps others experience the dramatic changes she went through via a variety of massage modalities, oils, and spa packages.
With her expertise in a broad range of massage modalities, Jennifer Feuerstein makes sure each client's individual issues are treated with a custom kneading session. She employs both gentle and firm gliding strokes and percussion techniques from the neck down to the feet, unraveling knots along the way and improving flexibility. The licensed massage therapist will sometimes incorporate aromatherapy into her massages, using classic essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, and strawberry shortcake.
