University Chiropractic's two licensed massage therapists use smooth, heated stones to help relieve tight muscles over the course of 60 minutes. Smooth basalt stones are most commonly used because of their ability to rapidly absorb and retain heat, like a silver spoon recently struck by lightning. Once stones are properly placed, massage experts rub them across the patient's body to soften sharp-edged muscle pain. Appointments are necessary, so be sure to schedule in advance.
Brenda Kjolseth, a certified and registered hypnotherapist with the state of Washington, helps patients overcome life’s obstacles in a comfortable, professional atmosphere. Using hypnotherapy techniques, she can help clients lose weight, stop smoking, or rid themselves of addictions and phobias.
Judith A. Ransom, MMP, NCTMB, uses her nimble, professionally trained hands to knead muscles with the skills she developed during medical massage training. She works to unwind tension and untangle the stress that her clients develop in response to the rigors of daily life, such as leaping onto passing commuter trains to get to work.
At Zografos Chiropractic Center, the woman working at the front desk sends clients back to meet the chiropractor, whom she less formally calls her husband. The family-run office, in business for more than 30 years, features an Asian-inspired decor scheme, soothing pained clients with a fountain and dimmed lighting. Real relief comes at the hands of the doctor of chiropractic, who treats patients atop memory-foam treatment tables. Alongside chiropractic care, the center also doles out massages.
At Back to Basics Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Gary Peters sets bodies on the path to wellness by identifying the underlying causes of pain rather than merely alleviating symptoms. The licensed chiropractor has seen his share of troubled vertebrae, many of which have led him to believe that problems ranging from muscular pain to digestive disorders can be traced directly back to the spinal column. In order to repair these conditions, Dr. Gary thoroughly evaluates clients with external examinations. His treatments and prescribed exercises help correct back problems, alleviate migraines, and heal bodies after sports injuries.
Philip Faler is a naturopathic doctor because he likes people. He enjoys spending time with his patients, and he enjoys helping them feel their best with holistic approaches to health care. His approach has always been one of integrative or "whole-person" medicine. After spending six years as a family clinician, he shifted his focus to anti-aging therapies. Today, at Wholey Healing, Dr. Faler and his staff use hormone-replacement therapy, naturopathy, and bodywork techniques such as reiki to restore the spring back into patients' steps.
