After an injury in the Navy left Terry Loher with a constantly aching neck, he turned to chiropractic care to alleviate the condition. The results amazed him so much that, after a seven-year military tenure, he went on to become a doctor of chiropractic himself.
At Vida Chiropractic, Dr. Loher understands that it takes commitment to find relief from pain. So he offers his clients an unlimited-visits program inspired by the continued chiropractic care his daughter needed when she suffered from severe scoliosis as an infant. Patients can receive as many adjustments as they need on a month-to-month or quarterly basis or purchase monthly packages for couples, families, or troupes of contortionists.
Whether it's chronic fatigue, a headache, or back pain, the doctors at Apple Medical Centers know that a surface symptom is often a signal that there's a greater, underlying health issue. They use a range of techniques—medical weight loss, chiropractic care, physical medicine—to relieve the symptoms, and strive to cure problems at their root causes to ensure patients are completely discomfort free.
Therapeutic Touch's team of licensed massage therapists specializes in a wide range of modalities proven to relieve aches and rehabilitate from injuries. The therapists employ these broad disciplines, including deep tissue, Swedish, sports, hot stone, and other forms of massage, to customize sessions around each individual's therapeutic needs. Hot towels and aromatherapy help soothe the senses during treatments, and clients can request two hot stones to induce deeper relaxation or to chuck at noisy birds chirping outside the window. The staff also improves aesthetic wellness with foot treatments, body wraps, waxing services, and a full menu of facials.
The experienced massage therapists of Heavenly Touch Massage revive bodies and minds with soothing hot-stone massages. A hot washcloth or lukewarm steak on the neck and forehead foster total relaxation while the therapist uses a hot stone to massage the upper body. Subtle, ongoing aromatherapy greets overworked olfactory glands and provides holistic tranquility during the session, and foot reflexology aims to keep toes tapping. Each massage is individually tailored to soothe troubled areas or joints jaded from nights spent opening dozens of pickle jars.
On the battlefield, there's no time to linger in the waiting room or wait in line at the pharmacy. Soldiers need fast and effective treatment in order to get back to helping their fellow fighters. It was in this high-stakes atmosphere that Ross Penny learned the ropes of medicine as a combat medic in the first Gulf War. As the conflict ended, Penny bolstered his skills by earning licenses in massage and neuromuscular therapy and easing pain in patients with soft-tissue injuries through a balance of Western medicine and Eastern healing traditions.
Although the therapist channels his 26 years of diverse experience into a range of bodily treatments, he specializes in the technique of neuromuscular therapy. Steady pressure on focused muscle groups mends six physiological factors linked with pain, which range from poor nutrition to posture problems. As tension melts away, ailments such as lower back pain, TMJ disorder, and chronic moonwalk dancing may begin to ease their agonizing hold on the patient's body.
