Chiropractic physicians John and Jimmie Glenn helm a family-friendly facility where they seek to not only eliminate their patients' pain, but help them keep it away. Chronic aches can emerge out of anything from misaligned vertebrae to simple muscle tension, so the husband-and-wife team performs thorough examinations and x-rays to locate the exact source of the problem. Instead of masking symptoms with medication, they then delve in to treat the cause with a series of chiropractic adjustments and certified massages. The doctors also educate their patients about other natural remedies, therapeutic exercises, and secret handshakes they can use at home to maintain a comfortable, low-pain lifestyle.
Q.U.E. Massage Therapy & Spa's retinue of pelt-pampering aestheticians works to create clear complexions while enhancing youthful tone with one of three refining facials. Staffers begin their facials with an exfoliating cleansing that sloughs away rough outer layers. Then, they give treatment masks VIP access to skin's internal layers with salubrious ingredients that seep deep into epidermal expanses, tackling imperfections more efficiently than microscopic linebackers. Mini facials then proceed with a steam application designed to open up pores and unclog visages of complexion-marring dots before aestheticians gingerly massage a hydration-infused moisturizer into skin. Alternately, during the Red Carpet facial, a variety of high-end complexion remedies coat demeanors while infusing skin with oxygen to bolster circulation and create glowing mug palettes. Otherwise, opt for a face-lift facial, which utilizes steam, ice, and a customized treatment mask to smooth away wrinkles and render a toned, vibrant complexion in a safer fashion than undergoing surgery or sneaking into Father Time's underground lair to arm-wrestle him for your 20s back.
Massage therapist Barb’s background in competitive fitness and her intuitive understanding of the mind and body informs her compassionate, holistic approach to massage. As she kneads aching muscles in a wide variety of modalities, Barb continually adjusts her technique in response to the client’s breathing, movements, and spontaneous operatic renditions of Figaro.

Whatever the relaxation technique, she keeps 30-minute intervals between each session to ensure that each client gets both a full appointment and her complete attention.
