At Hutch Chiropractic, Dr. Stanley Diehl boosts his patients' well-being with a holistic approach that targets the underlying causes of ailments rather than symptoms. His approach, like a overzealous bagel slicer, divides healthcare into three distinct sections. First, he tailors his gentle chiropractic adjustments to treat the immediate causes of pain, helping alleviate chronic headaches, neck pain, or backaches after a few visits. Then Dr. Diehl turns his attention to corrective techniques that help prevent further injury before focusing on long-term wellness, giving patients control of their own healthy destinies with nutrition and lifestyle counseling.
Doctors of Chiropractic Joshua Ferrell and James Perulfi, along with certified massage therapist Megan Fleming, join forces at Chiropractic Plus to help assuage their patients’ pains. They aim to erase the discomfort associated with migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and out-of-whack backs with services that include chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massages.
At Health & Healing Therapeutic Massage—the U.S. Commerce Association's 2011 Best of Wichita in the massage therapy category—studious therapists dedicated hundreds of hours to the study and practice of massage before treating clients in their serene space. These graduates of Heritage College's School of Massage and members of the ABMP and AMTA completed 720 training hours and 120 internship hours to deeply understand several types of massage, including trigger-point therapy, reflexology, and lymphatic. They tailor all services to address individual needs, even for training athletes and expectant moms. The therapists also deliver onsite chair massages to relax office employees or lure customers to garage sales.
The aura of warmth that envelops clients at Agape Therapeutic Massage is not merely a product of their imaginations. Heated tables wrapped in flannel linens aid the spa’s massage therapists, loosening muscles and thus making them more susceptible to a range of Swedish, deep-tissue, and therapeutic strokes. Though these techniques apply varying degrees of pressure, all of them can be enhanced with a hot-towel treatment that causes stress to melt faster than a snowman’s face after a shredding guitar solo. Dry-brush exfoliation treatments, sugar scrubs, and body wraps hydrate skin and flush out toxins, and seaweed or rose-mud wraps soften skin with nature’s most soothing ointments. :m]]
