At BodyBalance Techniques, the staffers view themselves as mechanics who jump-start the body's self-healing mechanisms. Instead of using jumper cables hooked up to a magical Ford Mustang, though, they rely on acupuncture treatments, nutrition therapy, and homeopathic remedies. For arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and chronic aches and pains, BodyBalance's team may recommend deep-tissue muscle-balancing sessions.

Dr. Travis Ring could fill a library with his assorted stacks of to-do lists. The head of Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic creates a "schedule of care" for each of his patients, personalizing the tasks so that they address both painful symptoms and their underlying causes. He has several tools at his disposal, the most important of which are his hands—they administer careful adjustments that aim to realign ailing vertebrae. He has also mastered ART, or Active Release Technique, a method that relies on manual therapy and movements by the client to offset the effects of old injuries.
Among other approaches to chiropractic wellness, Dr. Ring utilizes intersegmental traction beds, needleless acupuncture, and massages from his office’s resident licensed massage therapist, Crystal. These varied methods can combat chronic aches resulting from a wide range of conditions, including carpal tunnel and shin splints, in addition to bothersome back and neck spasms. Dr. Ring gears his practice towards families and especially enjoys working with children, as their backs typically have fewer hard-to-remove barnacles than those of adults.
Doctor of Chiropractic Justin Snyder is a second-generation physician, and an experienced wellness speaker, who uses chiropractic treatments to help heal without drugs or surgery. A hallmark of chiropractic care, his whole-patient approach is designed to relieve symptoms all over the body. By integrating acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy into his practice, Dr. Snyder presents patients with a custom template that helps bodies heal themselves. Dr. Snyder’s passion for athletic hobbies, such as snowboarding, cycling, and battling piranha invasions at local lakes gives him a firsthand look at how bodies function, and he uses this knowledge both in his practice and during his lecture career. He travels to companies, schools, and clubs to share his wisdom on back-injury prevention, pregnancy and postpartum care, and workplace ergonomics.
After foraging through forests of corporeal ailments and ill-advised tiger retreats, discover The Path to Wellness, a resort-like spa and health center aimed at whole-body rejuvenation. Skilled massage therapists employ ancient hand-arts to coax a comfier human out of a craggy muscle-knotted shell in the one-hour massage, available in their signature massage style, a lymphatic detoxifying process, or pregnancy-specific technique geared toward expectant mothers and misinformed fathers. Combine this thorough mollycoddling with a 25-minute express spa facial ($35) in the second deal option, a swift but thorough exfoliating treatment that leaves face-flesh as youthful and smooth as a toddler covered in pudding. Finally, the Paradise Package takes a zero-tolerance approach to bodily complaints, expelling gadabout impurities with an essential oil body wrap before moving to an aromatherapy massage, complimented by a hot rock and hot oil treatment, and finishing with the flourish of a full facial treatment.
Schluter Chiropractic helps patients find their healthy place with the musculoskeletal adjustments for which chiropractic is known. After a consultation to determine a patient's medical history and areas of discomfort, doctors conduct an initial examination and decide upon a treatment plan. Then, over the course of several sessions, they perform external adjustments to the bones that are meant to relieve pain and improve range of motion.
Before the treatment even begins, though, they put patients at ease with their family-friendly atmosphere. The Schluter family fills almost every role within the office, from the chiropractors to the chiropractic assistants to the office manager.
