Dr. Farrago of Great South Bay Chiropractic has been practicing his discipline for more than a quarter of a century, believing it to be one of the few medical disciplines that nurture the body along a path of natural healing. To kick-start self-healing powers, Dr. Farrago applies a full spectrum of drug-free chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments, heating pads, and soft-tissue manipulation. He combines these traditional techniques with advanced technology, such as the DRX 9000 machine, designed specifically to treat lower-back pain and sciatica. The machine uses a “distraction force” to retune spines and thereby enable them to play the National Anthem by simply lying across a xylophone.
At Serenity Source Massage, a thought-provoking sign greets visitors as they enter. It doesn’t tell them to merge, stop, or yield to leaping dolphins. Instead, it challenges them to better their lives with one bold word: “simplify.” To fuel the simplification process, licensed massage therapists help muscles let go of stress, tension, and stiffness. Signature 80-minute massages tether the body to the mind with a custom blend of flowing strokes, acupressure, and trigger-point therapy complemented by warm towels and soothing heat packs. Add-ons such as a scalp massage or a foot sugar scrub promote blood flow to boost energy and facilitate healing. Chiropractors can help target pain sources with careful adjustments and exercises that cultivate mobility and strength.
Doctors of Chiropractic Don Clum and Dana Cavell Clum, a husband-and-wife team, promote wellness by adjusting spines, massaging muscles, and teaching patients about nutrition and other elements of a healthy lifestyle. Though the couple often partners with traditional physicians, they focus on holistic therapies that do not involve surgery, medication, or sleeping on a bed of ice-cold stethoscopes. The Clums utilize several techniques when performing spinal adjustments. When using the activator technique, they deliver concentrated yet low-force impulses with a small handheld instrument. Other adjustments incorporate the Thompson terminal-point technique, whose low-impact, high-velocity adjustments are designed to correct misaligned vertebrae in the hips, spine, and core region. To accommodate patients from all corners of the earth, Dana offers communication in English and Spanish.
Bikram Choudhury arrived in America in 1972, bearing a series of 26 poses that he was able to prove promote healing within the labs of University of Tokyo Hospital. Within a room of up to 105 degrees, he performed postures that stretched soft tissues, awakened joints, and set off floods of detoxifying sweat. This style caught on and eventually washed over American yogis like a heat wave, ultimately leading to the opening of Bikram Yoga Bayport.
