Relaxing Alternatives Wellness Center restores bodies to factory conditions with a combination of massage and reflexology services. Deft hands glide over backs in either a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, employing long, light strokes to dispel tension or pinpointed kneads to render backs as knot-free as a velcro convention. Staffers then turn to clients' feet, prodding reflexive points to improve circulation and relieve stress in associated locations throughout the body. After the soothing barrage of both treatments, bodies emerge relaxed enough to meditate on a Wall Street trading floor.
At Family Back and Neck Care Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Stephen Taylor treats everything from whiplash to muscle spasms during his chiropractic adjustments. Helping to further alleviate the aches is certified massage therapist Bridget Myers, who doles out Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage kneads. To make their care as accessible as possible, the staff speaks English, Spanish, and Horse.
The experts at Advanced Spine & Wellness center believe that a large number of physical problems can be traced back to issues with the spine. Poor posture, back and neck pain, and headaches may all be signs of a weakened or damaged spinal column. By treating these problems at their source, the center may be able to not only resolve existing symptoms, but improve the function and performance of patients' bodies for the long term. Of course, every person is different, which is why the doctors perform one-on-one consultations with patients before crafting a personalized treatment plan. Thanks to a diverse and experienced staff, these plans may include not only chiropractic care, but physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and medical pain management, ensuring that issues will be tackled from every angle for the best possible outcome. This approach appears to be effective: high-performance athletes, including former professional football players, dancers, and professional arm wrestlers, have praised the center's team.
Their specialty might be chiropractic care and physical medicine, but the doctors at Rockville Medical and Disc Center LLC aim to heal more than just the spine. Their noninvasive techniques can help patients move past concerns such as carpal tunnel syndrome or knee pain, while acupuncture services provide another GPS-free route to whole-body wellness. The specialists can also help clients seeking lasting weight-loss solutions, either through contouring laser lipo treatments and calorie-burning whole-body vibration, or with nutrition services. A team of massage therapists and Reiki practitioners are also on hand, ensuring muscles stay relaxed and free from square knots.
Music from local artists pulses through the air, and artwork from area paintsmiths decorates the wall, but it’s not a trendy gallery—it’s a chiropractic center. Proactive Chiropractic’s doctors, Joe Pollack and Ryan Mullen use elegant touches such as these to put their patients at ease before and while rendering modern chiropractic care to alleviate pain and discomfort. Their methods include everything from spinal adjustments and massage to corrective exercises that teach bodies how to balance and function properly while avoiding aggravation and injury.
As providers of holistic care, they also instruct on ideal nutritional habits and offer lifestyle advice, counseling clients on choices they can make to prevent health challenges. Through their well-rounded approach, which also includes spinal and posture screenings, they treat all forms of lower-back and neck pain, as well as sciatica and injuries such as whiplash incurred during car crashes. Dr. Mullen’s background as an athlete informs his particular empathy with patients dealing with sports injuries. Dr. Pollack, a Rockville native, takes the lead on infusing Proactive Chiropractic with the flavors of local culture—one of the reasons Terrapins crawl around the office, the other being that their sturdy backs, or “shells,” serve as something to which patients can aspire.
