Every appointment at Neo Pinot Spa is designed to give clients an escape from the worries of everyday life. After enjoying a complimentary drink of spring water, herbal tea, or gourmet coffee in the waiting area, world-weary folks can truly relax as the nail technicians and aestheticians go pamper mad. The spa?s signature mani-pedis leave nails trim and refined, incorporating everything from salt scrubs and sea clay masks to warm herbal towel treatments, creating an indulgent spa experience. Additionally, the staff performs classic facials, foot massages and reflexology sessions, and waxing treatments that use hard or soft waxes and withering glares to get rid of unwanted stubble.
If Dr. Noé Flores could give his chiropractic patients one piece of advice, it would be to work toward preventing pains before they start. By incorporating lifestyle coaching and practical postural-advice into his visits, he helps to fulfill his goal of helping patients practice prevention as much as he helps them relieve their pains. New patients experience an in-depth consultation during which Dr. Flores assesses their current issues, the number of bowling balls currently stuffed in their mattresses, and their goals for treatment, before he administers tests or treatment. During adjustments, he uses a low-pressure technique as a way to keep his patients comfortable. In some cases, he uses auricular therapy, a type of ear acupuncture that helps release endorphins and reduces pain. Building on his preventive ideas, the doctor and his team also give their patients exercises they can perform on their own to promote wellness outside his office.
Clearwater Clinic’s three chiropractic doctors, Bryan Baisinger, Jacob May, and Greg Lekas, all share at least one other passion: athletics. Dr. Baisinger, the owner, specializes in sports medicine and performance, and is the former medical director for the Portland Fit marathon-training group. When he isn’t in the office, he’s serving as team physician for Portland State University’s athletics department or hapkido instructor at Portland State.
Dr. May is a member of the physical therapy team at the Oregon Ballet Theater, Dr. Lekas teaches martial arts, and both donate their time and skills to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training sports-training program. At Clearwater, all three doctors combine their areas of expertise to provide integrative chiropractic care with manipulative therapy and manual-adjustment techniques.
They’re aided by a team of specialists that helps identify a range of issues—whether it’s mental stress caused by working too much or physical stress caused by tunneling out of a work cubicle. Naturopathic doctor Lindsey Nelson educates patients on plans for stress reduction and proper nutrition. Lori Petras, meanwhile, treats clients with acupuncture or Chinese herbs. And, using modalities such as deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot or cold-stone massage, a pair of licensed massage therapists removes tension from muscles.
Though multiple physical heads would perhaps cause concern in most chiropractors, the pair behind Shephard Clinic of the Chiropractic Arts work to prove that two individual heads are better than one. The two Doctors of Chiropractic here each have a separate focus, leading to a broader and more in-depth base of knowledge and skills. Dr. Tomaino works extensively with the nervous system, using controlled-force adjustment methods to maximize its function, and Dr. Gerhart’s understanding of soft-tissue injuries and exercise mechanics make him particularly well-suited to assisting cyclists and pedestrians injured by out-of-control cars or rogue Segways.
The staff members at The Qi Spot share a philosophy centered around creating a gentle environment to help patients to forget everyday stressors and focus on bringing their bodies into balance. The practitioners specialize in traditional Chinese medicine therapies, including acupuncture, herbal remedies, and naturopathic counseling, to relieve pain and aid in healing after auto accidents. Cupping, cosmetic acupuncture, and moxa also help to inspire a healthy flow of chi. Improving energy circulation, like rotating the skeleton's tires, helps to prevent pain and illness by encouraging the body to function smoothly.
The Oregonian has written about the holistic hub, and co-owner Wade McCulloch performed facial acupuncture on television in front of a live studio audience for AM Northwest. The practice also shows a commitment to helping others by providing community acupuncture to clients without health insurance and by contributing to the Harambee Center, a Portland-based organization that supports Kenyan communities.
