It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.
In its role as Bay Chiropractic’s dedicated massage center, Bay Bodywork possesses one thing other massage centers don’t: proximity to a full chiropractic team.

As a result of their medical surroundings, the therapists specialize in the results-oriented techniques of therapeutic, deep-tissue, and sports massage, which can not only relieve tension but also shorten injury recovery time.
The team at Butchart Health Center consists of Dennis Butchart, a doctor of chiropractic, and fellow physicians, Dr. Robert Duplain ND and Dr. Corrine Wang ND. Together they take a deeper a look at the root of patient's surface symptoms to target the underlying cause. The root of many ailments often can be traced to spinal misalignment, which he and his colleague Dr. Jeremy Jones then treat using a variety of adjustment techniques and stern lectures.
Their teammate, J. A. Servatius, a naturopathy specialist, takes a similar holistic approach to his weight-loss and wellness treatments. He aims to help his clients make positive changes in their lives by adopting proper nutrition and healthy habits.
Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Manuel founded Mid-Peninsula Chiropractic following a tenure of treating pro athletes and regular patients alike. Today he uses that diverse experience to help his clients overcome chronic or injury-related pain. Following a consultation, the doctor examines the spine, snaps x-rays if necessary, and performs the most apt treatment to kick the body into a self-healing frenzy. Treatment varies by patient, but it could entail cold-laser therapy, an adjustment to correct spinal misalignments, or electrical stimulation.
When he returned from Vietnam as a US Army Ranger in 1969, Doctor of Chiropractic Watson brought back a souvenir that would change his life: a severely injured back. Disillusioned with the impersonal approach of his medical team, he refused surgery, even though his pain persisted. Finally, a friend recommended chiropractic care, which not only relieved Dr. Watson's discomfort but also inspired him to become a chiropractor himself. His commitment to the surgery-free, holistic discipline was redoubled years later, when his 12-year-old daughter was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis. Dr. Watson devoted his days and nights to scoliosis research, and his office became a certified scoliosis treatment center.
Today, Dr. Watson alchemizes his own health successes into a chiropractic practice that helps others lead lives free of pain and anvil-stuffed backpacks. Aside from treating aches with rehabilitation and chiropractic machines, he renders sleeker figures with nutrition counseling and Zerona treatments.
