The therapists at Health Foot Spa specialize in reflexology, which has many of the same benefits as massage including stress reduction, improved circulation, and pain relief. But unlike massage, this method applies pressure to specific points of the hand and feet to promote whole-body wellness. Reflexology also stimulates the lymphatic system to clear out toxins and dust bunnies, and helps alleviate common conditions such as allergies, constipation, and insomnia. But it's not all about the hands and feet—therapists also turn their attention to the head, neck, shoulder, and back with acupressure and chair massages.

Family Ties' audio-visual wizards transport precious memories from fragile analog formats to resilient CDs and high-capacity DVDs.

Film and videotape conversions spring wedding videos and shaky camcorder recordings of the infamous UFO bank robbery of '75 from their native formats for preservation in pristine digital quality. Still photos scroll across screens to musical accompaniment in video photo albums, and audio digitization knocks the dust off old album collections, cataloging tunes for easy playback on CD.
Founded in 1948, the ChiroCenter has succeeded through the decades due in large part to the expertise of their doctors of chiropractic, the ranks of whom now include nine different chiropractors with as much as 35 years of experience. At each of the center's five offices, these doctors alleviate their patients' pain using adjusting techniques whose purposes range from improving biomechanics to reducing nervous-system interference. One such technique is the activator method, a process for fixing subluxations that involves delivering low-force, high-speed thrusts with a handheld instrument that resembles a mini pogo stick or a giant ant pogo stick. These practices treat more than just the back; benefits also include reducing fatigue and improving headaches and sciatica.
