At Bodyworks LLC., owner Vickie Rush helps clients detoxify and rejuvenate their bodies with alternative therapies, such as rehabilitative percussor treatments, infrared body wraps, and ion-charged footbaths designed to draw out heavy metals, chemicals, unwanted acids, and unassimilated fats. Vickie hunts for unwelcome items lurking in the body, such as parasites, chemicals, yeast, and gummy bears that refuse to come out of hibernation. The treatments that ensue may help reduce chronic pain, brighten mood, boost immunity to disease, and slim physiques.
Cody King understands muscles. Aside from graduating as the valedictorian of his class at MTC, the licensed massage therapist spent 10 years working as a certified fitness instructor, allowing him to bring a unique understanding of the body's need for recovery, relaxation, and frequent fist bumps to the massage table. Drawing on his expertise in musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, he integrates multiple massage techniques––including Swedish, hot stone, and neuromuscular therapy––to customize treatments that address specific pain- or stress-related complaints. He also works in tandem with a licensed physician at Capitol Spine and Rehabilitation, where physical therapy and chiropractic medicine meet spa-like services, to help clients find relief from injury and get back on the leapfrog circuit as quickly as possible.
Witnessing car accidents is just another part of the job for Doctor of Chiropractic Rich Roth, who has been a chiropractor for more than two decades. Granted, these accidents happen in a controlled environment through postgraduate courses at Texas A&M's engineering extension program. With this additional education, Dr. Roth has been better able to ease his clients’ aches and pains—working on more than 12,000 injury cases and counting—from his Beaver Creek Health & Rehab office. To help patients achieve pain-free lifestyles, Dr. Roth and his team employ spinal decompressions, laser treatments, and physical therapy as they try to ease symptoms from auto accidents as well as everyday headaches, fatigue, and crippling hiccups.
Shortly after opening his practice in 2005, Dr. Roth knew he wanted to reach out further to his clients. To do this, he became a member of Club Reduce, a network of doctors dedicated to offering effective weight-loss services. At Beaver Creek, Dr. Roth assists patients in slimming their figures with body wraps, exercise programs, and noninvasive Lipo-Light treatments.
