At Spring Chiropractic & Massage, licensed podiatrist Dr. Kent Biehler eschews drugs and surgery to help heal with noninvasive, holistic treatments instead. Chiropractic techniques are Springs's specialty, but patients also visit for laser fungus removal, nutritional counseling, and health screenings.
As a licensed acupuncturist and trained massage therapist with more than 15 years of experience, Dr. Craig Thomas of Tallahassee Chinese Medicine has the background needed to heal ailing patients at the root of their symptoms. His acupuncture sessions—which involve placing fine-tipped needles into specific pressure points along the body—are said to relieve arthritis, headaches, allergies, and dozens of other maladies. Thomas considers shiatsu massage an important part of the holistic-healing process too, since it helps to increase circulation, reduce stress, and loosen joints. The center also doles out herbal medicines free from heavy metals, pesticides, and swear words on the bottles.
Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an offsite laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary-care physicians for further analysis.

Though Still Point Massage and Bodywork staple services are therapeutic massage, deep-tissue massage, and craniosacral therapy, they will add on other perks, such as reflexology, acupressure, and stones as needed.
