Chiropractic experts at The Vital Energy Center use the Myovision SEMG to detect vertebral subluxations by measuring the amount of electrical activity that muscles release when they're tense. Then they use their hands to give really good massages. Choose from three different hour-long, muscle-melting massages from Vital Energy's expert therapists (graduates of the Soma Institute of Neuromuscular Integration and the Wellspring School for Healing Arts). Vital Energy is the only place in Seattle where you can get an AMMA massage: an atypical, Eastern medicinal rub that includes nutritional advice, herbal therapies, and other health suggestions like "pecans may or may not give you eternal life" or "you should work out in my garage when I'm not home."
The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
Dr. Jill Goldberg lives by a simple motto: "I don't live a mediocre existence, and neither should you." This mantra has formed from more than 20 years as a chiropractor working with patients of all ages—including athletes, dancers, and artists to name a few. Offering cash plans as low as $37 per visit, she draws such a large clientele because she runs a results-driven practice, one customized to the individual's unique needs by utilizing three gentle and specific chiropractic techniques. Clients may also solicit Dr. Goldberg's degree in nutrition to receive nutritional testing and supplements.

Evergreen Chiropractic’s overarching goal is to strengthen bodies’ natural healing abilities, consequently reducing patients’ dependence upon prescription meds, surgeries, and diets limited to juiced oranges and grilled band-aids.
