While following Wellness in Motion Chiropractic's mission to help people achieve better health and wellness, Doctors of Chiropractic Lorenz Hamburger and Erica Manger work with a handpicked crew of massage therapists. The doctors team up with the therapists to select and customize a massage for each client, addressing individual needs, goals, and knots. Clients can choose either a male or female member of the massage team, all of whom utilize therapeutic deep-tissue and Swedish massage techniques, as well as massages geared toward expecting mothers, athletes, and models who have spent the past month posing for a marble sculpture. In addition to chiropractic care and massages, Wellness in Motion Chiropractic helps guide patients toward better health with exercise, nutrition, and motivational coaching.
