Licensed massage therapist Judy Watkins believes the same, though she strives to access this energy noninvasively with the help of healing touch therapy. She can also combine this treatment with massage in such varieties as Deep-Tissue and therapeutic for an even more soothing experience.

The non-surgical spinal services performed by Doctor of Chiropractic Philip Afghani at Atlantic Chiropractic & Wellness Center can help alleviate back and neck pain and realign spines thrown askew by heavy furniture or a rugby team that discovers who keeps moving their furniture.

Additionally, the practitioners perform acupressure and educate their patients with diet tips and exercises that improve overall health.
Amid the elegant accents and upscale atmosphere at Verde Salon and Spa, it's the tiny add-ons that give services an extra boost. During the salon and spa experience, facials, green-tea cleansers and vitamin A enzyme masks repair skin issues. Warmed stones and calming essential plant oils aid massages. Herbal mixes, sea-salt scrubs, and paraffin masks make up body treatments that buff and shine skin, and a diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand rids pores of dirt and oil.
