The licensed massage therapists at Absolute Chiropractic believes that massage therapy is an important complement to chiropractic care. While their chiropractic services focus on the the spine and its impact on the nervous system, massage focuses on the muscles. To help relieve muscle aches and pains, they use a variety of techniques to soothe clients' muscles and help them heal. Available modalities include relaxation, prenatal, therapeutic, Swedish and sports massages, which can be used either in conjunction with chiropractic care or by themselves.
Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.

Husband-and-wife Doctors of Chiropractic Diane and Chris Hayes join forces to relieve a range of painful symptoms with noninvasive treatments, helping to break clients' reliance on unnecessary medications. Although they can use the office's x-ray technology to get a clearer picture of bone structure, the doctors mostly rely on their encyclopedic knowledge of spines, joints, and common Twister injuries when they perform hands-on adjustments or Activator instrument adjustments, depending on the patient's needs. As further proof of their commitment to holistic well-being, they also offer weight-loss programs that help patients develop new eating and exercise habits in order to prevent the onset of serious health complications.
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
