Elite Rehab Institute’s chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and physical therapists may not share the same specialties, but they all have one thing in common: a belief in the efficacy of holistic medicine. At each of the clinic’s six locations, staffers work together to relieve aches and pains caused by conditions such as stress, asthma, and arthritis. Their multidisciplinary approach ensures care from multiple doctors at a decreased cost as well as access to advanced treatments. Chief among these treatments are active-release technique—a soft-tissue massage that relieves pain in overused muscles—and the four-step ideal-protein weight-loss program, which helps shed pounds by stabilizing blood sugars and injecting muscles with daily shots of helium.

Over on the salon side, stylists provide designer cuts personalized to each client; they'll add color, give hair shape and volume, or straighten it to create a look that suits their client's individual features and lifestyle.

Massages and body wraps round out the pampering services, offering respite from stresses such as work deadlines or trying to get your dog to eat your homework.

The studio also offers stress-management classes that teach clients how to remain calm and composed.
