A Lotus Touch Therapeutic Massage's therapist kneads bodies into a gummy state of bliss with a one-hour head-to-toe massage. Working over the back, neck, shoulders, and scalp, the massage stops only to take a quick karaoke break before traveling out to the body’s orbiting appendages of the hands, legs, and feet. Stress, along with tension and pain within the muscles, pack their bags and head for the door as the therapist utilizes a variety of massage techniques to penetrate multiple layers of tissue. The massage also helps to relax the nervous system, stimulate circulation, boost energy, and locate the wedding rings that were swallowed in a double-dare at a PTA meeting.
From the corporate store to each franchise location, the staff of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition goes beyond stocking and suggesting supplements to offer health help through a variety of channels. Sales associates in the stores help to discern the optimal body aid to achieve the personal fitness goals of athletes, bodybuilders, and everyday exercisers, be they weight loss, weight gain, muscle gain, toxin-flushing, or intimidating a superhero into ripping a cumbersome collection of old phone books in half.
A certified sports-nutrition specialist can also sit down with clients to chart their age, gender, height, and basal metabolic rate to draft a comprehensive, custom nutrition plan. The written word further fortifies customers' soul cages in Max Sports and Fitness, a monthly magazine brimming with health-supplement advice and fitness tips.
The female-focused health and wellness gurus at Comprehensive Healthcare for Women practice a whole view on health and wellness in an attempt to banish stress and tension with restorative Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal therapeutic massages. During each massage, skilled therapists ease tightness from stiff muscles with nimble fingers that can draw upon long, flowing Swedish-massage strokes to knead tendons with alternating pressure or firm deep-tissue strokes to loosen knotted connective tissue and milk lactic acid from musculature. Comprehensive Healthcare's team of therapists tailor massage techniques to pamper and alleviate stress and pain for each client. Prenatal massages can help mothers-to-be by curtailing anxiety, soothing inflamed nerves, and helping the body flush away stores of excess fluid and sarsaparilla to reduce swelling. Hot stones may be added to the massage for no additional fee.

Captained by licensed chiropractor Dr. Larry Estebo, Premier Health Chiropractic's team of spine adjusters has been scrutinizing and soothing pained backs since 1983. After discussing patient health issues and treatment options during a brief consultation, doctors perform a chiropractic examination, testing bodily flexibility, posture, and how quickly knees can answer riddles. If necessary, doctors x-ray patients to more closely inspect them for signs of spinal misalignment or degeneration. Following the initial 20- to 30-minute diagnosis, doctors magically transform their digits into masseuse fingers, digging and rubbing into the deepest, tensest contours of client spines during a 30-minute session that unburdens backs of persistent stress knots and lower-back tattoos.
