The power of touch is applied every day inside Massage Wellness Center, where licensed massage therapists help patients find relief from discomfort using deep-tissue, relaxation, and sports massage modalities. At the helm of the center is Dr. Richard Jones, who further alleviates pain and helps prevent future issues with chiropractic adjustments and low-level laser light therapy treatments.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.

Stanton Optical treats shoppers to a selection of more than 3,000 frames from designers such as BCBG, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein. Their optometric physicians calibrate fresh prescriptions before patients browse the wealth of frames and then select from brands of lenses such as Sola, Zeiss, and Transitions, which alternate between clear and tinted to protect eyes from sun rays and help them absorb the zinc found in moon rays.
