Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.

HealthFirst Chiropractic seeks to stealthily track and pin down bodily pain, instilling patients with a sense of wellbeing and relief through a panoply of techniques. A chiropractic exam determines each patient's skeletal state, such as mild scoliosis or bones that are actually plaster-filled paper-towel tubes. Skittish skeletons are captured on camera by x-rays, exposing the potentially painful secrets obscured beneath flesh. Finally, the deepest of tissues are prodded into submission by kneading hands in a massage designed to relieve stress and increase joint flexibility; alternatively, pressure points play pincushion during a targeted acupuncture session.
