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.
Dr. Karen Harris's path toward naturopathy began when an illness led her to seek out and study natural alternatives to wellness. Her findings not only led her toward improved health but also uncovered a passion for holistic solutions that set her on the path toward her future career. Today, this doctor of naturopathy and nutritional counselor serves as the head of Saba' Health Center, where she operates under the philosophy that the body can heal itself if given the right ingredients, which may include exercise, a healthy diet, and the expulsion of toxins. To help hasten the healing process, she aids bodies with services that range from colon hydrotherapy to detox formula supplements to body scans for conditions such as gluten sensitivity and celiac disease, and provides access to products including liquid multivitamins and antioxidant juices.
