Over the course of a 15-year career, chiropractor Trek R. Smith has learned a lot about the body. He guides the staff at Back to Health Chiropractic with this knowledge, working to treat headaches, chronic pain, and other conditions, as well as helping his patients bounce back after accident or injury. Using advanced techniques such as spinal decompression, electrical muscle stimulation, and sweet-talking your vertebrae, the clinic’s team moves patients toward a state of improved health and reduced pain. Additionally, Smith and his staff can suggest herbal and nutritional supplements to help boost health and performance.
Doctor of Chiropractic Amber Wellman, who specializes in sports rehabilitation, pediatric care, cold-laser therapy, and nutritional counseling, treats patients with chiropractic care combined with lifestyle advice. After any type of treatment, including spinal adjustments and massage therapy, Dr. Wellman suggests a wellness program for patients to use on their own. This can include instructions for ice and heath applications, corrective exercises, and stretches, helping treat both the symptoms that are currently active and the dormant ones that, like a child television star, may act out in the future.
At Go Yoga, owners JP and Cassie McClellan pay homage to the practice that brought them together with a slate of classes inspired by Baptiste Power-Vinyasa yoga. Both veteran yogis train under the method's creator, Baron Baptiste, on a regular basis, and import his techniques to their own studio, which surrounds visitors in tropical plants and soothing earth tones. Baptiste yoga weaves several different traditions into a series of flowing postures performed in a space that’s warmed to 90 degrees, mimicking the average temperature found on the dark side of the sun. At Yoga for Beginners and Restorative Flow classes, instructors tweak gentle routines with a focus on linking breath to movement. Special events treat attendees to yoga on the beach, and regularly offered sessions such as massages and outdoor EcoVentures offer relaxation or tours of Amelia Island by foot, bike, kayak, or horseback.
At E.V.E, treatments and services are based on energy healing, which aims to fine-tune the energy systems in the body to restore balance and allow the body to heal itself. Potential benefits include better sleep, weight loss, reduction of chronic pain, and overall detoxification. In conjunction with these treatments, clients can also opt for custom meal planning based on metabolic testing, symptoms, goals, and health concerns. Meal plans, which are created by a nutrition specialist, include four weeks' worth of recipes that complement treatments intended to align the mind, body, and spirit and can be tailored to any allergies.
Massage therapists at Believe Day Spa & Boutique have three goals: release stress, loosen muscle tightness, and increase their clients' sense of well-being. To do this, they customize each session to the needs of each patron, adding such modalities as deep-tissue massage, hot-stone release, and scalp massage as needed. They partner their line of massages with skincare, including deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, detoxifying seaweed body wraps, and smoothing cellulite treatments.
