When caring for their patients, the first step the physicians at Natural Healing Medical Center take is to turn to nature, using naturopathic medical techniques including botanical medicine and acupuncture. When nature is not enough, they blend it with modern medicine, such as minor surgery and cyborg nursing assistants, to identify and treat the root of the client’s illness. This two-pronged approach allows them to find the most natural and effective means of ridding bodies of pain, stress, and stubborn curves.
Many patients at Chirocare Plus can remember a time when their chiropractor, Dr. Gregory Hertzberg, was fresh from receiving his degree at Life Chiropractic College. Dr. Hertzberg has practiced in Phoenix's Southeast Valley since 1989, and many of his loyal patients have been with him since those early days, when computers were still the size of one of Jupiter's smaller moons. That's not to say he doesn't welcome new people into his treatment room, however. Here, he develops custom plans to address issues such as chronic pain, injuries, and numbness in arms and legs. Dr. Hertzberg also work alongside a team of certified massage therapists, who complement his chiropractic care with soft-tissue work.
Zari Pavri founded Nutrology Consultants in 1978, leveraging his experience as a wellness educator and a researcher for nutritional supplements to provide nontoxic, drug-less avenues for clients seeking detoxification, nutrition awareness, and optimal health. Mazi Pavri serves as the facility’s co-owner and certified colon therapist, drawing on more than 18 years of experience as she facilitates detoxification by flushing out toxins and hardened waste. Colon irrigation can give clients a feeling of lightness and newfound energy, and herb-vapor and foot-detox therapies offer alternative means of ridding the body of waste and toxins.

At Health Vibes, the staff likes to make patients sweat, literally. The center's two main services, the Photon Genius sauna and the Genie Machine, emit photon and infrared energy to burn calories and remove bodily toxins. The sauna is designed for full-body treatment, whereas the Genie device is designed for spot treatment, such as an arm or a tail. Once patients part ways with their toxins and calories, they can learn how to keep them away by scheduling a supplement counseling session.
Since she addresses pain at a fundamental level—the nerves themselves—there seem to be few ailments Dr. Stephanie Stang can't help her patients overcome. She relies on a combination of acupuncture needles and traditional chiropractic adjustments to reroute nerve impulses and help the body heal itself. Apart from pain, she also plies her healing trade to patients looking to give up smoking, lose weight, or boost their fertility.
Aches and pains meet their match at Lifecare Chiropractic, where two chiropractors and three massage therapists work to ease the effects of injury-, age-, and accident-related health issues. E-book author and fitness fan Dr. James Bogash specializes in functional, preventive medicine, with a particular emphasis on the art of manipulation under anesthesia (MUA). Inspired by her own healing experience with chiropractic care, Dr. Kristen Heim now delivers the same relief to patients of her own. Along with the massage therapists, the duo tackles the root causes of myriad symptoms, often curing them with surgery-free techniques. The practice also delivers cosmetic treatments, such as Lipo Laser treatments that assist in weight loss and supplements that can be glued together to form an attractive mask.
