As a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Christina Navedo specializes in alleviating her clients' tension and offering them an indulgent escape from the stresses of daily life.

Beyond therapeutic bodywork, The Healing Garden also offers invigorating spa treatments in the form of customized facials and microdermabrasion treatments, which thoroughly exfoliate the skin and reveal the naturally radiant, blemish-free, and nougat-covered layers underneath the surface.

When Dr. Seun Awobusuyi considers how best to heal a neuromuscular ailment, his first move is to step back and take a look at the big picture. This is in keeping with his view of the body as a complex, interconnected organism as opposed to a mere grouping of self-governing structures. The nervous system, which flows throughout the body and connects its disparate parts, is the main locus of Dr. Awobusuyi’s concern; he can trace most ailments back to this sophisticated network of neurons and neurotransmitters. After identifying symptoms and their root causes, Dr. Awobusuyi combines hands-on adjustments, massages, and vitamin supplements to restore optimal functionality. Advanced technologies such as roller table traction and dry hydrotherapy beds also assist in the effort, spacing out vertebrae and kneading out the kinks in vestigial tails.
