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. Additionally, registered massage therapists relieve clients’ stress and tension by loosening muscles, ligaments, and impossibly stuck jar tops with soothing strokes and targeted pressure.
Though she began practicing massage therapy full-time in 1990, registered massage therapist Carrie Steffens has always been interested in helping others. She was raised by parents who emphasized the importance of holistic health and an eco-friendly lifestyle, growing their own produce in an organic garden and incorporating meditation and energy work into their everyday lives.
At Alchemy Massage & MPS Therapy, Steffens continues their tradition of physical and mental healing with a variety of specialized treatments. She performs deep-tissue, prenatal, and neuromuscular massage therapy, but she is also experienced in structural integration bodywork and is a master teacher of reiki-energy techniques. Dexterous at the art of pain management, Steffens can alleviate discomfort resulting from whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, or extended eye contact with two clowns smushing their faces together.
Colby Bryant is a licensed neuromuscular-massage therapist who specializes in soft-tissue ailments such TMJ disorder, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and whiplash. By identifying sources of tension, Colby hopes to isolate treatment and accelerate the healing process. A typical session may consist of Swedish strokes to promote circulation or firmer deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer aches.
A welcome beverage of lemon water, coffee, or tea serves as a prelude to pampering at Reflections Salon & Spa. Within private treatment rooms, aestheticians and massage therapists perform facials, waxing services, and bodywork. Out on the salon floor, meanwhile, stylists bustle about wielding scissors, foils, and, conditioner in bottles rather than scissor-vulnerable water balloons. The spa's treatment packages combine several services for a morning or afternoon of relaxing luxury, and the boutique stocks jewelry items from Michael Michaud and other designers.
Carmichael Chiropractic targets three primary causes of health problems—trauma, toxins, and stress—so that patients can get back to moving well and feeling healthy. Armed with knowledge and experience gained over three decades in practice, Dr. Carmichael administers adjustments, exercise rehab, and ergonomic training. Nutritional supplements available at the clinic bolster healthy diets, while cleanses can evict toxins built up in the body from the rage your elbow feels every time you bump it on your desk.
By working with the body to promote natural healing, Healthy Lives Clinic’s nationally certified and licensed acupuncturist dispels acute and chronic pain by controlling energy flow throughout the body. The hair-thin needles used in acupuncture relieve pain by producing an analgesic response in the body similar to massaging your insides with menthol cough drops. During the initial 2- to 2.5-hour visit, a practitioner records vital signs and pinpoints health concerns to formulate a comprehensive diagnosis before beginning treatment. Stimulating specific energy points provokes the body’s natural healing response, improving overall functionality while relieving bothersome symptoms such as lower back pain, nausea, or melancholy zebra stripes. Widely varying conditions, from common headaches to rheumatoid arthritis, can show improvement following the pinprickery of acupuncture points.
