The dedicated massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage knead stressed sinews with traditional Chinese massage strokes and nutrient-rich organic lotions. Ease into a 60- or 90-minute session that undulates between light pressure and deep-tissue kneadings through the use of chi-gong. This ancient Chinese approach focuses on energy, helping the body heal from illness and long naps inside the washing machine. Torso tamers use acupressure points, rubbing, and muscle tapping to relax the body and assist in restoring its natural balance. The treatment's unscented organic lotion soothes the skin and senses with hypoallergenic goodness in the form of jojoba, shea butter, sesame oils, sunflower, and chamomile.
Regardless of the doctor of chiropractic you see—Hollis Helms at United Chiropractic or Brad Cudnik or Keith Taylor at Pecan Valley Chiropractic—you’ll certainly be in practiced hands. Though they have more than 60 years of combined experience as chiropractors, the trio spends ample time refining their craft in postgraduate courses and training. Their treatment techniques vary slightly by office and include traditional spinal adjustments, decompression, massage, and therapeutic exercises, such as swimming in a pool full of aromatherapy oils.
At Stamps Chiropractic, Dr. Wes Stamps and his team of specialists dish out doses of relaxation via a variety of massage-therapy treatments. During 30-minute hydro massages, clients remain completely clothed and completely dry atop a specialized bed. As powerful waves of water deliver heated, soothing strokes to targeted areas, a user-friendly touch screen encourages further customization with peaceful videos and a relaxing soundtrack that includes music and the tranquil call of howler monkeys.
Working with patients of all ages, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Williams plies his healing touch to the uppermost two vertebrae of the spine—the point where the skull meets the neck. Here, the atlas joint floats freely, which allows the head to swivel in all directions, but it can easily slide out of place. Through careful examinations and subsequent gentle adjustments, he realigns this area in attempt to remove pressure from the spinal cord, which allows the body to heal itself.
As a former linebacker for the Tennessee Titans and college wrestler, Dr. Brock Stratton knows where the body is apt to get injured. He devotes his practice to alleviating and preventing injuries with a spectrum of modern chiropractic techniques, such as kinesio taping, whole-body cryotherapy, and therapeutic exercises.
But he doesn’t carry out these techniques in some small, single-room chiropractor’s office. His office is located within Steven Stratton Physical Therapy, whose expansive exercise space contains cardio and weight equipment alongside comfortable treatment tables.
