When Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel Cocks describes himself as a student of the Gonstead school, he's not taking a shot at his alma maters Life University and Sherman College of Chiropractic, he just has an affinity for the Gonstead technique. As a result, he meticulously inspects each patient's body using x-rays, palpations, and his own eyes before devising a personalized course of action. He supplements his efforts with custom orthotics, life coaching, and exercise routines at his clinic, White Marsh Spine and Health Center.
Under the guidance of clinic director Dr. Timothy Gober, DC, the wellness professionals at White Marsh Healthcare and Physical Medicine help patients to identify food intolerances with the ALCAT blood test.

The slim 20-foot storefront of Silhouettes for Women may look unassuming, but it opens to a 5,000-square-foot facility with two group fitness studios, private changing rooms, and a private weighing area. In addition to women-only fitness classes, personal training, and cardio equipment, the gym also offers nutritional counseling from certified weight-management consultants.
The staff of medical professionals at Katzen Eye Group, which first opened its doors in 1968, brings blurry vision into focus at four locations in Baltimore, Abingdon, Lutherville, and Rosedale.

Additionally, a staff of aesthetic professionals beautify bodies through services including skincare and cosmetic laser treatments, which can eliminate wrinkles around the eyes more effectively than staring at a jar of cold cream.
