Jeffrey Remer, owner of Eight Gate, applies 19 years of studying Eastern healing techniques to each of his treatments. After receiving his master's degree from the American College of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, he studied acupressure, Chinese massage modalities, and zen Shiatsu, then learned constitutional-acupressure-renewal methods from Mary Elizabeth Wakefield at the Chi-Akra Center. He strives to foster health in his clients by working in harmony with Western medicine and in vocal harmony with passing barbershop quartets.
Doctor of chiropractic Ron Fried has treated countless sports-related injuries throughout his 20-year career, many of which occurred during his stint as the chiropractor for the Detroit Lions.

At the 1996 Olympics, Doctor of Chiropractic Mark A. Prather was chosen as the resident chiropractor for the Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestling team. Alongside a group of talented massage therapists, he treats patients at Rochester Hills Spine Care with the same level of care he afforded to the celebrated athletes. Massages induce relaxation with long, smooth strokes and haikus tapped out in Morse code, and can help reduce specific pains from ailments such as pulled or strained muscles. Trigger-point massage targets particularly sensitive points on the body to relieve tension. Spinal-decompression treatments nudge bulging or herniated disks back into place while assuaging issues such as osteoarthritis or sciatica.
Dynamic Chiropractic's two doctors of chiropractic, Ondre Jacques and Melissa Klave, aim to treat aches and pains while also focusing on preventative care. Dr. Jacques' takes a "whole body approach," which means proactively treating imbalances that could one day develop into more serious issues. Dr. Klave, meanwhile, treats spines with a broad array of adjustments, ranging from gentle spinal manipulation to more precise, targeted instrument work. The duo complements their treatments with postural screenings, which can discover spinal ailments such as a cracked vertebrae. Nutritionist Kerry Audisho and massage therapist Karleen Brown address other non-chiropractic needs.
Dr. Adam Mandziuk, the chiropractor behind Star Chiropractic, first became interested in chiropractic care as a teen. A doctor had recommended surgery for his father's back pain, but the elder Mandziuk decided to try chiropractic care first. It worked. Mandziuk witnessed his father heal without drugs or surgery.
At his practice, Dr. Mandziuk works to heal patients in the same way. With deft adjustments, he realigns spines, relieving pain and boosting overall health. Patients can also opt for massages that relax and soothe the surrounding muscles.
