Performance Health Centers Of Atlanta pools the experience of a chiropractor and massage therapists to help clients get in shipshape condition. Dubbed “The Running Doctor,” Dr. John N. Thomas draws on his love of jogging, cycling, and other sports along with more than 15 years of experience as a board-certified doctor of chiropractic. At his side, certified massage therapist Parnisia Duckworth, brings her studies in holistic healing and the Daucik Method—a European sports-injury treatment—to the massage table. Together, they straighten askew spines, send stress and muscular tension fleeing from bodies, and give athletes the strength to get back on the field or burrow underneath it for the game-winning touchdown.

Their wellness services extend beyond weight loss, encompassing chiropractic adjustments and other physical therapy.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Our signature performance is cellulite removal and we use our own proprietary equipment to perform that treatment. Essentially, the accumulation of fat cells beneath the skin cause the skin to become uneven (cellulite). Our cellulite treatments break up those fat cells and, thus, smooth out the skin surface.
Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
Yes, we are licensed medical professionals.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
By manufacturing our own equipment, we do not have the same overhead as other laser treatment businesses. Thus, our rates are lower than everyone in the Atlanta area. Part of our mission is to make cosmetic laser treatments affordable for everyone.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
We've found that our clients are the most excited after cellulite treatments to the buttocks and thighs. Woman enjoy looking beautiful, and we simply give them another reason to show off those lovely curves.
