It took a trip to Sedona, Arizona, to rekindle Kathy Zagorski’s passion for Japanese reiki treatments. Inspired by the natural beauty and energies of the high desert, Kathy decided to rededicate her life to helping clients overcome everything from stress to chronic pains through the use of reiki. Kathy asks her clients to lie on a massage table—still fully clothed or clad in chainmail—and concentrate on their breathing. She then proceeds to place her hands on various points of the body, searching for signs of blocked or restricted energetic flow. By redirecting the body’s natural energies and helping clear these blockages, Kathy restores a sense of balance between the mind, the body, and the spirit. This sense of balance can help alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms of conditions such as anxiety, depression, and grief.
Dr. Joe Mazzeo knows that many clients come to the chiropractor when they are in pain—neck aches, back pain, or headaches, typically—but it can also be a preventative measure to stave off future discomfort. At Active Care Wellness Center, he prescribes treatments including corrective exercises to strengthen connective tissue and nutritional counseling to convince patients that swallowing bricks won’t fortify the backbone.
Formerly known as the Wellness & Tranquility Center, Shakir Whitehead of The eLements Spa was unsatisfied with the way people would shrug off pain as an unavoidable product of aging, especially when there were more probable triggers such as diet, stress, hair color, and lack of exercise. Drawing on this idea, and the deep appreciation of his friends and family for his incredible backrubs, he decided to become a licensed massage therapist. Now in the comfort of his own private studio, Shakir can alleviate chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes, or address lower-layer aches with deep-tissue or trigger point therapy. When not befriending muscles, Shakir befriends his community, volunteering his time for Whole Foods and Susan G. Komen charity events.
The Cleansing Center is a holistic haven where disease prevention and healthy lifestyle habits are the main focus. Before beginning any treatment, the health providers employ an informative new-patient assessment to help them understand the patient’s medical history and current health issues as well as their emotional and spiritual state. From there, they are able to construct a customized plan that focuses on treating the root of the problem rather than the symptoms. Colon hydrotherapy harnesses the toxin-flushing power of the LIBBE Open System, which sends a gentle stream of water into the lower intestine to purge it of impurities. The Cleansing Center also provides nutrition and exercise counseling, spiritual guidance, and lab work when necessary.
Dr. Robert White, a skilled chiropractor and the backbone of Advanced Integrated Health, synthesizes the latest research to create salutary programs that help patients combat back pain, muscle aches, fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel syndrome, and more.

Patients embark on their path toward health with the full support of a skilled medical staff that takes care to attend to its patients' needs with the friendliness and approachability that can be missing from traditional medical environments.
