After more than 26 years in the sales and business-development profession, David Wenger found his calling. His grandfather started a chiropractic center more than 70 years ago, and his father carried the wellness torch for half a century. Despite David's choice to enter business, the family's traditional line of work called him back. David has since become nationally certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork, graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage with 637 hours of hands-on experience and anatomical and physiological study.
With his education and work ethic guiding him, David performs diverse therapeutic and relaxation massages. He uses modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, aromatherapy, and myofascial release to soothe muscles, reduce stress, improve range of motion, and detoxify the body. His massages range from 30 to 90 minutes, like a trip to the DMV when no one else is in line.
The team at Health by Design Natural Clinic goes beyond treating symptoms.

The clinic addresses conditions ranging from hormone imbalances and digestive issues to arthritis with plans that might include reflexology, one of 14 massage modalities, or nutrition guidance.
Not everyone likes the idea of having their back popped. The doctors at East Earl Chiropractic help patients cope with this oft-essential step by offering optional light anesthesia before adjustments to help relax both muscles and jitters. The doctors then ply their healing trade using noninvasive spinal manipulation, decompression, and massage.
Patrick Suglia is a certified holistic healer specializing in traditional Usui reiki as taught by Hawayo Takata. An article on Rieki.org cites that among Takata's many philosophies, she was especially fervent about treating more than just the symptoms. "If you treat only the afflicted area of the body," said Takata, "you may alleviate symptoms temporarily but the permanent healing will not take place unless you treat the cause." Suglia not only draws on these teachings, but also on his own health experience to promote natural healing during one-on-one reiki energy sessions. Clients can also solicit Suglia for onsite treatment or distance energy counseling via telephone or Skype.

As the founder of Yorktown Chiropractic, Dr. Philip Jeanmenne calls upon his advanced knowledge of anatomy and his experiences as an athlete to treat sports injuries and tend to the stresses of everyday life. His enthusiasm for the mechanisms of movement extends to his assistant, Amanda, who works closely with patients to address their concerns during exams and consultations. X-ray, ultrasound, and electronic muscle-stimulation equipment lines the office walls, lending assistance to Dr. Phil as he decompresses spines and tends to vertebral discs scratched from overplaying. On his rare breaks from providing and overseeing chiropractic, massage, and nutritional services, Dr. Phil strives to better understand the body’s needs through continuing education.
