At Adjustments & Acupuncture, Doctor of Chiropractic Deb Hirabai uses more than 16 years of acupuncture experience to guide her patients toward active lifestyles. A recipient of such treatments herself, Dr. Hirabai zeroes in on everyday disorders while drawing on methods such as spinal corrections, applied kinesiology, and traditional Chinese acupuncture and herbal formulas. Most treatments begin with a comprehensive exam, which allows her to map out a personalized solution for each patient rather than relying on a cloth map of Middle Earth.
Sherri Ault, In Sync Healing's head massage therapist, has honed her healing touch for the past five years. She assuages muscular aches through modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point, and myofascial release. Her bodywork sessions help clients overcome a wide range of maladies, from chronic pain caused by injury to anxiety over the inability to massage oneself.
Acupuncture has been effectively used for the treatment of back pain, headaches and migraines, neck stiffness, and sports injuries. However, acupuncture goes way beyond pain relief. Many people find acupuncture to aid in: anxiety, insomnia, weight control, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, infertility and much more.
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.
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.
Sleuthing out clues to move beyond symptoms to root causes, the specialists at 100% Chiropractic expedite healing with a roster of preventive care strategies, from instilling better eating habits through nutrition workshops to combating the effects of stress with chiropractic services and massage therapy.

The warm husband and wife run practice, which feels more like a spa than a doctor's office, has on-hand licensed massage therapists who are well versed in relaxation and therapeutic modalities to dismantle unhealthy muscular tension patterns or lower stress.
