Board-certified acupuncturist Ed Hubbell aims to alleviate the effects of chronic pain and illness with Chinese herbal remedies and acupuncture services. Using 3,000-year-old treatments ranging from Qigong healing to cranial-sacral massage, Hubbel helps clients reclaim balance in their lives. Similarly, his stress-reduction workshops teach clients how to unwind after long days of work, school, or stunt-double training.

At Flynn Family Chiropractic, Drs. Kevin and Jackie Flynn believe that the body is intelligent, which may explain why we recover from injury and jerk back from hot stoves and snapping turtles that won't shake hands. With more than 10 years of experience, Kevin and Jackie attempt to tap into this intelligence by, first and foremost, making sure that the spinal cord is unencumbered by slipped discs or pinched nerves. These ailments can not only cause pain but also interrupt the flow of communication between the brain and the rest of the body, leading to a host of potential illnesses.
Inside her tranquil studio, massage therapist Rachel Henrich unravels knotted muscles using Swedish and deep-tissue massage techniques. But Rachel's specialty is in Thai bodywork, a type of massage that uses yoga-like stretches and rhythmic compression. During this technique, clients lie fully clothed on a padded mat on the floor as Rachel helps them to stretch their muscles and joints by gently pulling, twisting, and lifting different parts of their anatomy, all in an effort to help free energy blockages and bring balance back to the body.
The specialists at On The Right Path host a range of therapeutic services to promote wellness and balance in body and mind. The facility’s sand-hued walls simulate the beach’s calming energy as a holistic healer leads patrons to a personal massage table, where shoulders revel in rolling hand movements and arms joyfully flap in inflatable water wings. Like film noir, the one-hour massage or reiki treatment relieves tension by slowly untangling complex knots, and draws inspiration from German expressionist Bob Saget.
Antonio Marotta originally intended to become a psychologist. After working in a group home for the mentally ill, though, he developed an idea that the patients' medications were often just masking, rather than treating, the cause of their problems. Wanting to get away from a single-minded medical approach, Marotta made the move to chiropractic, which he believes emphasizes a holistic view of wellness and offers more opportunities for him to introduce people to his favorite model skeleton.
Now, the doctor of chiropractic's main focus is correcting misalignments, a significant cause of pain and other bodily issues, and helping clients avoid the movements that add up to massive discomfort. Marotta's primary treatment is high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustment?the classic back cracking?though he can tailor his techniques for those who want gentler alignments. These adjustments are incorporated into multifaceted treatment plans that can also include spinal-decompression therapy, massages, and even exercises that help golfers improve their swing mechanics to prevent injury. Marotta also manages clients' overall well-being by guiding them through detoxifying weight-loss plans and suggesting nutritional supplements.
