The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
The doctors at Mercer Island Chiropractic work to relieve minor aches and soreness, but they specialize in tough cases: chronic pain and injuries sustained in accidents are their specialties. At three locations, they restore bodies to health with techniques such as manual adjustments that realign vertebrae and traction-table sessions that coax muscles into blissful relaxation. Patients can also rest easy beneath the hands of massage therapists, who employ techniques such as cupping, reflexology, and sternly ordering tension to exit the body.
Gloria Ross' life changed in 1984. She had dabbled in herbs and fasting regimens as means of detoxifying her body, but it was 28 years ago that she experienced her first colonic. This fateful cleansing treatment led to her to a career in colon hydrotherapy. She opened Eterna Holistic Therapies and now shares this drug-free practice with others, alongside a staff of fellow I-ACT-certified practitioners.
The stylists and aestheticians at Indulge glamorize their clients with a full menu of hair, skin, and nail services. They dapper and gussy up men's, women's, and kids' locks during cuts, and artfully apply color to create foiled, balayage, and ombre styles to give hair depth and sheen. Facials and waxes smooth skin, and massages oust tension from muscles more safely than a silk-covered steam roller.
Doctor of Chiropractic Bill Warburton keeps spines in line with adjustments carefully selected to suit each patient. His methods range from the common diversified technique to the more unconventional Pettibon system, which revolves around the hard and soft tissues of the spine and seated x-rays. Cranial adjustments allow Dr. Warburton to treat the bones in the skull. The massage therapists on staff complement his chiropractic treatments with bodywork sessions that relax strained muscles and aim to erase chronic pain. Their hope is to improve their patients' health and well-being through holistic therapies.
