Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
As its name suggests, Mind & Body Care seeks to address both the aesthetic and emotional center of each guest who enters its cozy studio. The physical side of this goal finds fulfillment through the efforts of two technicians: Beth, a licensed and certified medical aesthetician with 10 years of skin care experience, and Lori, an aesthetician who pursued medical aesthetics after earning her license from Pivot Point Academy. Their areas of expertise echo the spa's offerings, which range from Swedish massage to medical-grade peels. Nails and tresses find creative shaping through the mastery of Elyse, an innovative hairstylist, and Arlette, a veteran nail artist with 18 years of experience.

Dr. Echelbarger also coddles musclescapes with neurological massage, which measures the electrical pulses traveling from the brain to the muscles to determine what muscles need to be soothed for maximum relief.

In order to support children in the community, Back in Line provides free consultations, spine and nervous system examinations, x-rays, and a doctored straight-A report card for patrons who donate bags of school supplies.
