With more than 20 years of chiropractic experience between them, Doctors Kevin and Gina Brown promote wellness and cultivate corporeal fortitude through a range of natural backbone-balancing treatments. During AquaMed dry hydrotherapy, clients remain fully clothed and control the massage, which deploys jets of water to soothe coarse dorsals without the awkwardness of donning inflatable water wings. First-time adjustees begin with a comprehensive examination of spinal and neurological health, as well as x-rays, to pinpoint potential trouble spots. After a consultation, trained spine sculptors then identify the appropriate adjustment technique to re-align wandering vertebrae, extinguish inflamed nerves, and straighten out burgeoning stegosaur plates.
Licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a Georgia native, Isa Holloway, who accrued expertise under the tutelage of Southwest Acupuncture College's Doctors of Oriental Medicine, facilitates full-body holistic healing with the strategic application of tiny needles during acupuncture treatments. Sessions aim to alleviate health woes—including allergies and sleep dysfunctions caused by recurring nightmares of cookie monsters under the bed—and additional pampering, such as topical herbs, hot tea, foot acupressure, and guided meditation, further encourage overall wellbeing. Alternatively, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, and patients have the option to pair sessions with microcurrent or light energies to further vivify faces.
Studded with vibrant violet walls and informational charts on the skeletal and muscular systems, Risner Chiropractic and Wellness Center’s decor—like its services—aims to help patrons feel at ease and better informed about their body.

During the time she spent working in emergency rooms around the country, it occurred to Dr. Mary Kay Ross that many of the patients she treated suffered from preventable ailments such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. Drawing from her research in the field of anti-aging and weight loss, Dr. Ross embarked on a mission to turn back body clocks and slim figures with safe, minimally invasive treatments, opening Live Well M.D. Savannah in the process. At the health-care facility, laser body-sculpting techniques, including VASER lipo and CoolSculpting, shrivel fat cells that don’t respond to exercise or commands to play dead, while bio-identical hormone treatments help patients overcome the symptoms of menopause and andropause by balancing the body’s natural hormonal chemistry.
These and other wellness regimens and cosmetic procedures take place inside an office specifically designed to induce a feeling of calm. Sky-blue walls combine with the ambient sounds of a burbling fountain to comfort clients as they wait on comfy leather furniture and watch a flat-panel television.
Casey Horan first began to appreciate the complexity and beauty of the human body while studying jujitsu. His teachers recommended deep-tissue massage and stretches as a way to heal injuries sustained during practice. In 2000, he earned his license in massage therapy and began to treat others with the same methods that worked for him.
At Horan Therapeutic Massage, Casey now treats patients with his own signature style. He targets chronic physical pain and tension with deep kneads, and uses warm stones, hot towels, and healing balms to calm the mind.
