Founded by Scott J. Fox, DC, and Brian Weiss, PhD, Rest and Relax Bodyworks and Century West Medi-Spa integrate Western medical science and traditional Eastern medicine.

They also address skin issues with facials, peels, and waxing treatments. Their waiting room abounds with potted plants, dark wood accents, and South East Asian-inspired artwork prints, as well as ornate oriental rugs that catch dropped cell phones without a word of reproach. A hallway leads to treatment rooms aglow with soft light from wall sconces, as a Buddha statue looks on serenely.

Yet, fundamentally he stays true to the core of chiropractic, applying traditional adjustments designed to stimulate the body’s healing properties without medication. Due to his more than 16 years in the medical field, he is often called upon by the state of California as a medical examiner in medical legal cases.

When Tanya M. Reynolds was an adolescent, she was diagnosed with cervical dysplasia. After suffering through several unsuccessful surgeries, she finally found relief in a chiropractor, whose adjustments and dietary recommendations helped mollify the pre-cancerous condition. Today, inspired by that early miracle, Tanya—now known as Dr. Reynolds—helms her own clinic, In8Love Chiropractic, where she has spent more than a decade relieving her own clients’ ailments, from disc problems to back spasms caused by tossing telephone poles in the Scottish Highlands. Her vast range of treatment plans includes cold laser therapy, which soothes issues such as tendonitis and arthritis, and custom foot orthotics, which help align spines by ensuring a balanced pedestal. Beyond comforting funny bones stuck in uninspired sitcoms, Dr. Reynolds’ office also offers relaxing, therapeutic massages.
