Suffering from multiple athletic injuries, Dr. Dan Anderson received treatment from his father, an osteopathic physician. The health benefits he discovered from these manipulation therapies inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic care. Dr. Anderson has now practiced for 26 years (18 in Modesto) and uses a blend of one-on-one consultation, surface EMG tests of the muscles and nervous system, and x-rays to prescribe an individualized course of treatment for each patient. Instrument and hand adjustments maneuver bones and muscle groups into the correct formation, while nutritional advice and at-home exercise allow patients to extend their healing beyond the office and into sit-up routines wherever they have some time to kill, such as the gym or the DMV. The bilingual staff at Anderson Chiropractic and Wellness speaks English and Spanish, and the reception area’s blue walls support warm sconces that light up the room along with each posttreatment smile.

The Retreat secludes patrons in a soothing atmosphere accented with earthy tones, tranquil water features, and sleek slate tiles for relaxing and beautifying services. During the microdermabrasion treatment, guests settle back as an experienced aesthetician blasts interloping layers from the skin’s surface using a targeted jet of fine micronized crystals, creating a clearer complexion and a softer exfoliation than rubbing faces with soccer cleats. This gentle treatment is known to effectively minimize the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, and light scarring. Afterward, a revitalizing facial enhances smile canvases by flushing dirt, oil, and microscopic sand castles from pores.
Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.
