After studying at Integrated Medicine College in Taiwan, Nancy Chiu went on to deepen her knowledge of Chinese medicine by studying under Dr. Shiu–a leading infertility doctor at TaiPei Chinese Medical Association for Gynecology and Infertility. Today, she shares her skills at Coastal Chiropractic. Though Chiu specializes in women's health services, she also expertly uses slim, sterile acupuncture needles to treat issues such as headaches, depression, and chronic pain in men and women. Those who desire needle-free treatment may benefit from auricular therapy, cupping, and Chinese Tui Na technique.
At Massage Kneads, licensed massage therapist Florence Lewis relieves tension with treatments that vary in intensity. She delivers smooth, continuous Swedish strokes by lubricating hand motions with essential oils extracted from plants or robot joints. Alternatively, she breaks up knots with firm deep-tissue kneads. She also practices reflexology, a technique that normalizes the body's functions through specific manipulations of the feet.

Massage styles offered range from lomi-lomi—which uses long circular strokes—to shiatsu, which uses thumb pressure at specific points on the body.
