Healing the structural, chemical, and emotional ailments of one person can be as difficult as completing a puzzle with your kid brother who likes to eat the pieces. But at Renaissance Health Centre, doctors Pfau, Mongie, and Davidson address this trio of wellness factors, personalizing health-care plans that heal the whole person. The practice helps put bodies back into balance through a range of services including the NUCCA chiropractic technique. The technique uses gentle, low force to align the body without the sounds of popping and cracking. Adding even more comfort to the chiropractic experience, the center's garden invites patients to stroll amongst flourishing palm trees, blossoming roses, and a stone-lined pond that trades wishes for updates on its favorite soap operas.
Chiropractor David Williams founded Back Care Chiropractic more than 17 years ago. Recently, though, he and his staff have expanded their repertoire to include a variety of holistic health treatments, and the company was reborn as Whole Body Health. In addition to chiropractic care and physiotherapy, Dr. Williams performs personalized nutritional counseling and recommends herbal supplements for detoxification or weight loss. In addition, he teaches complimentary weekly classes about physical and emotional health to reduce stress.
It’s also possible to take advantage of the center's guided meditation and relaxation techniques. Their Self Mastery Technology focuses the mind with synchronized pulses of optical energy and sound, like doing yoga to the beat of your neighbor's holiday music-and-lights display.
Nickum Chiropractic’s namesake physician channels 22 years of back-adjusting experience to realign off-kilter patients. The 45-minute appointment begins with an examination, in which Doctor of Chiropractic Nickum addresses lingering pains and identifies bodily imbalances that could affect the landing scores of competitive trampoline somersaults. Equipped with the exam results, Dr. Nickum smoothes away hypodermic discomfort with a firm-pressured deep-tissue stretch-therapy massage. A chiropractic adjustment properly situates spinal columns set off-balance by sports- and fitness-related injuries, among others, refitting bones and muscles into harmonious accord.
The wellness wizards at Greenawalt Chiropractic diagnose body ailments and unbundle tightly wound bodies with a host of massage-therapy treatments. Sessions begin with kinesiology consultations, which explore patients’ health concerns and possible treatments such as Body Talk, Total Body Modification, and hugs from surrogate mothers. Following the consultation, clients choose a one-hour massage from eight massage types including Thai foot, French lymphatic system, and hot stone. For pinpointed relief, a French lymphatic body massage stimulates the efficient removal of lymphatic drainage, whereas a Thai foot massage administers localized pressure to leg hands, relieving tarsal tension and improving muscular function. To alleviate deep-seated aches and boost body circulation, hot-stone massages prod human posteriors with heated river rocks, which transfer warmth and entertaining tales of river life to stressed dorsal muscles.
City Athletic Club's 50,000-square-foot modern facility includes a medical weight loss clinic, workout studios, and state-of-the-art exercise equipment. A small machine that delivers data that helps dieters come up with effective weight-loss plans is also within this space. This device, dubbed the MetaCheck, captures exhaled oxygen during a simple 10-minute breath test and determines how efficiently a person is burning calories. With this metabolic information, one can make more sensible nutritional choices and play the resulting numbers in the lottery.
