It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.
The multispecialty team at Body Kneads takes a no-frills approach to pampering. Stylists offer guests a complimentary beverage as they get down to business transforming hair and nails. Aestheticians analyze skin during hydrating facials, and massage pros aim to send bodies into a state of relaxation. Whereas the jacuzzi area boasts a wall-length mural depicting a mountainous lake scene, the main salon is simply decorated with plants and flowers. Large mirrors allow patrons to admire freshly tanned skin or check to see if a body-scrub treatment has removed a self-applied chocolate bull's-eye meant for Cupid.
Named for the Greek goddess of the rainbow who replenished peace and energy in nature, Beauty Spa by Ereeda has a service menu designed to help clients find relaxation and balance in their own lives.

Ereeda is also a popular spot for those seeking more in-depth treatments, including full treatment facials, which include an oxygen treatment, unstress rosacea treatment, anti-acne treatment, collagen treatment, and an anti-aging treatment.
With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, physical therapist Roland Lucas knows that the best way to recover from an injury is to avoid injuries in the first place. That's why he's devoted a large part of his practice to the prevention and resolution of overuse-related strains in athletes of all stripes. He's aided in his efforts by his office's biomechanics-analysis system, which he uses to identify stressors and bad workout habits otherwise imperceptible to the human eye. Of course, even with the best prevention, injuries still sometimes happen. When muscles cry out in pain, Lucas also comes to their aid with traditional physical-therapy services.
The Chiropractic Way promotes whole-body wellness with an array of chiropractic and nutritional treatments. Precise adjustments nudge misaligned backs into balance, and a flexion-distraction table gently stretches the spine to heal injuries.

Afterward, they boost health with custom-tailored blends of nutritional supplements derived from whole foods. The Chiropractic Way provides support for issues such as weight loss, fatigue, sleep, depression, and digestion.
