Dr. Richard Mantell and Ellen Salkin, RN, understand how important appearances are for generating self-confidence. That is why they dedicate their medical and technical expertise to aesthetic procedures that make patients appear more youthful by rejuvenating their skin from within rather than just covering it with finger paint.

When Sly and the Family Stone sang the lyrics "different strokes, different folks" in their 1968 hit "Everyday People," they probably weren't thinking about chiropractic and weight-loss techniques. But the song's general principle—that everyone is different and should be accepted—applies at McDonald Chiropractic, where Dr. Greg McDonald and his team tailor their techniques to fit clients' unique needs and goals. Dr. McDonald specializes in spinal decompression and treatments that target lower back and neck pain, but his service menu also includes advanced therapies such as brain-based neurological rehabilitation.
The licensed massage therapists at N2Health ease muscle tension & promote blood circulation during 60-minute custom massages using Swedish and deep-tissue techniques suitable for each client. The patron can choose a male or female massage therapist, who consults both muscles and their owner to establish pressure preference and choice of oil or lotion in the comfort of a private room. Skilled hands perform long, fluid strokes to ease tension in tight appendages, and circular motion and vibration improve blood circulation throughout the body. As muscles steep in rejuvenated bliss, patrons can inquire about N2Health’s chiropractic and weight-loss programs or interview the potted cactus in the corner on the many benefits of the office’s acupuncture services (not valid with today's Groupon).
