The wellness professionals at Serenity on the Square remove the obstacles that inhibit personal growth. They do this by ushering patrons on an inward journey—a journey that challenges the individual to look inside, just past the spleen, and confront the emotional limitations that block success. They also foster growth by healing the body, believing that "when you feel your best, you are your best, and you expect the best." This mission statement points to the center's services, which include massage therapy, yoga, reiki, and holistic nutritional counseling.
He can’t say that he invented the laser light, but Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Carella does take credit for the development of laser spine care. During each laser-therapy treatment, he stimulates acupuncture points across the body with a laser light and manipulates the spinal nerve root with an LED light. The therapeutic glow from these devices helps soothe chronic pains, such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, nerve-root irritation, backaches, neck aches, and post-handshake shudders. Though not all of Dr. Carella’s treatment techniques—which include acupuncture, chiropractic care, and hypnosis—are his own inventions, he performs each with the same level of care that has earned him the nickname “The Gentle Chiropractor.”
Dr. Carella has mastered his technique throughout more than 40 years in business, a lengthy and accomplished career that even Dr. Carella himself didn't predict. He was diagnosed with a structural lumbar dysfunction, which led him to research its treatment methods. That's when he discovered the field of chiropractic care. He wrote a textbook on hypnosis in 1975 and contributed to a book that offered treatment methods for those suffering from back pain. He also belongs to several medically based associations and academies, and his skills have brought him such high-profile clients as football Hall of Famer Bobby Bell, Grammy Award–winner Roberta Flack, and professional wrestler Harley Race.
In her quest to relieve clients' chronic pain, Dr. Shawnda Gross of Natural Body Works LLC embraces the intersection of Western chiropractic care and Eastern medical philosophy. A board-certified chiropractor and chiropractic acupuncturist, Dr. Gross believes in the importance of using minimally invasive procedures to address pain while also targeting underlying structural and energetic imbalances. With the help of manual and instrument-based chiropractic techniques, she bolsters neurological function by restoring alignment along the spinal column. Her acupuncture treatments, meanwhile, jump-start the body's natural healing processes with thin needles or laser heat trained on key energy meridians, easing the pain caused by anything from sciatica to constrictive bubble-wrap clothing. Similarly, the center's massage therapists help ease skeletal, muscular, and neurological aches with specialized modalities that locate and treat trouble spots.

As a certified acupuncturist, he also alleviates pain and treats conditions such as high blood pressure and dizziness with advanced acupuncture tools rather than needles.

Dr. Nick Crom's interest in chiropractic medicine began in college, when a quick series of visits to a chiropractor relieved him of chronic nausea that had eluded the testing and prescription drugs of his doctors. Now, motivated by the effects the gentle spinal adjustments had on his own health, Dr. Crom helps alleviate patients' ailments with holistic approaches.
Rather than prescribing drugs to mask a disease's symptoms, Dr. Crom adjusts the spine in a way intended to stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities. Acupuncture, massage therapy, and detox treatments, meanwhile, help to further unlock internal recuperative powers, which can be encumbered by the toxins that accumulate during daily life or attempts to eat top-secret Etch-a-Sketch drawings. His clinic also helps clients shed excess pounds via Lipo-Light treatments, which unleash toxins lodged deep into bodies without needles, pain, or down time.
