At the New Direction Chiropractic office, Drs. Kelly Coogan and Joni Vachon take a chiro-veda approach to healing patients' ailments. Developed by Dr. Coogan—a devoted yogi since 1989 and a chiropractor since 1997—this method combines Ayurvedic and chiropractic techniques that realign and strengthen the spine. These techniques range from drop-table and essential oil–infused massage work to the art of Ayurvedic breath work and yoga-inspired exercises. Clients also reach another level of relaxation as they are pampered with footbaths, acupuncture, and aromatherapy treatments.
A car crash leaves a woman with chronic, excruciating back pain. Her doctors put her on potent pain meds, but her agony persists and drags her into a deep depression. After lingering around a physical and mental rock bottom for eight years and desperate for relief, she pays a visit to Hans Levy. Using Bowenwork therapy, he helps her get off her painkillers and begin to wriggle free of depression in just three treatments.
After completing formal training in physical therapy and massage in Germany in 1982, Hans Levy—who split his childhood years between Germany and Colombia—embarked on a new chapter of his life in the United States, where he continued to add to his repertoire of bodywork services by studying yoga, shiatsu, and Bowenwork therapy. In 2005, Hans harnessed his abilities to open a refrigerator door with his mind and establish Fluid Motion Therapies. Since then, he's enlisted the help of fellow licensed therapists to provide clients with physical and psychological rehabilitation through services ranging from massages to hypnotherapy.
Live Well Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Damian J. Cata uses his skills and experience to tap into the body's innate ability to heal. According to Dr. Cata, the body, mind, and spirit operate in tandem via the nervous system, and disconnections between these elements manifest as symptoms of disease and sickness. His chiropractic adjustments aim to target the causes of these symptoms to return the patients to a state of wellness. Even his office echoes this earthy approach; as patients gather in the waiting area, fish shimmy in a blue-green aquarium, a special toy area occupies children, and a television enables them to catch up on the latest mortgage interest rates.
A chiropractic patient as a child, as an adult Dr. John Vasko is walking evidence of the method's efficacy. Today, he plies the same drug-free healing techniques he received decades ago.

After he locates the cause of the problem, he applies noninvasive adjustments designed to trigger the body?s self-healing ability, and advises clients on exercises, nutrition, and general patient education.
