Intent on relieving her patients' chronic aches and pains, Dr. Nicki Borba uses rejuvenating chiropractic techniques to help them feel better. She begins by thoroughly examining the spinal column and checking for misaligned vertebrae, which can place pressure on the nerves and interfere with the body's ability to maintain an optimal state of health and wellbeing. From there, she might use the Gonstead adjustment technique to manually correct the sources of interference. That hands-on remedy can help alleviate ongoing discomfort caused by everything from repetitive strain injuries to automobile accidents. Additionally, she helps relieve her patients' musculoskeletal and neurological issues by providing physiotherapy treatments?such as therapeutic stretching and electrotherapy?that are intended to jump-start the body's natural healing and rechargeable batteries.
Licensed chiropractor and Rocklin Family Chiropractic owner, Dr. Eric Wagnon, believes that the body has an innate power to heal itself. In his family office, he examines and treats everything from whiplash to sports injuries, posture problems, and chronic pain, offering holistic remedies while treating the root of each problem, instead of just the symptoms. During visits, each client is given a thorough examination, which includes a discussion about their health history as well as x-rays. Using this information, Dr. Wagnon outlines a course of treatment designed to improve their overall wellbeing and make them feel less like a pretzel stick and more like a Twizzler.
Often employed by athletes recovering from workouts or injuries, cryotherapy uses subzero temperatures to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and increase mobility. During each session, up to four guests spend 30 seconds inside an antechamber cooled to -66 degrees Fahrenheit, then 2.5 minutes in a main chamber at -166 degrees Fahrenheit. Though the skin's surface temperature can drop by more than 30 degrees, the treatment's short duration keeps guests' core temperatures at normal levels. Upon exiting the chamber, guests move into an exercise room where they stimulate reparative blood flow by performing a 10-minute cardio workout or visualizing a grocery-store shopper sneak 11 items into the 10-items-or-less line.
US Cryotherapy provides necessary safety gear to keep hands, ears, mouths, and noses warm, and recommends guests come dressed in gym shoes and swimsuits. First-timers must complete a brief physical-readiness questionnaire, which screens for health conditions that may cause complications during cryotherapy sessions or attempts to gain part-time work as an ice sculpture.

Reiki treatments may seem mysterious, given that they rely on an invisible energy field. Learn about the theory that guides its practitioners' hands with our brief introduction.
Nearly a century ago, Buddhist monk Mikao Usui ascended the slopes of Mount Kurama to meditate. He stayed for three weeks, and when he came home, he brought with him the basic tenets of a new healing technique: reiki. The technique is defined by a practice referred to as ?laying on of hands.? The fully clothed patient reclines on a couch or table as the therapist homes in on 12?15 energy pathways across the body. The therapist?s hands then act as conduits of positive energy, hovering above each pathway for several minutes at a time. Advocates of reiki report a profound feeling of relaxation that washes over the body during these sessions?some drift off to sleep, and others claim to experience out-of-body visions.
To parse the meaning of reiki, one can divide the Japanese word into its constituent parts?rei, meaning ?divine spirit,? and ki, meaning ?life energy.? Though not tethered to any religion, reiki is spiritual in nature and built upon the notion that ki, often chi, flows through everyone. Negative thoughts and physical conditions can disrupt this chi, and it is up to the reiki therapist to recharge the affected parts of the energy field. Usui believed the therapy was ?the miraculous cure of all diseases,? but modern reiki therapists rarely recommend that it take the place of traditional medical or psychological treatment. They see it instead as a supplemental energy therapy that works in harmony with other types of medicine to combat anxieties and physical illnesses.
