Since graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic 15 years ago, Dr. Terri Norburg has been realigning out-of-whack spines. She manually examines bodies and x-rays spines to root out the cause of pain before tackling discomfort with adjustments, electric muscle-stimulation treatments, and physical-therapy services. To boost the health of her patients even more, Dr. Norburg pairs ailments with beneficial vitamins, such as vitamin C for people with a vitamin C deficiency, or potassium for people with bananaphobia.
Eric Thomas learned quite a bit about massage while attending school in Savannah, but one lesson stands out from the rest: no two bodies are the same. Once he discovered this, he set out to master a range of massage modalities that would allow him to untie any knotted muscle and break up any adhesion. Now that he is armed with knowledge in Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and neuromuscular therapies, Eric rarely comes across a stress-induced ailment that he can’t treat. In addition to easing chronic pain and tension, his massages benefit the body by stimulating blood flow, strengthening the immune system, and working out jams in the metal gears responsible for swiveling the head.
At E.V.E, treatments and services are based on energy healing, which aims to fine-tune the energy systems in the body to restore balance and allow the body to heal itself. Potential benefits include better sleep, weight loss, reduction of chronic pain, and overall detoxification. In conjunction with these treatments, clients can also opt for custom meal planning based on metabolic testing, symptoms, goals, and health concerns. Meal plans, which are created by a nutrition specialist, include four weeks' worth of recipes that complement treatments intended to align the mind, body, and spirit and can be tailored to any allergies.
Surgery is a big decision. That's why True Life offers a holistic alternative to traditional medicine with noninvasive chiropractic services. Dr. Jamie Masyk helms the practice, which uses computerized infrared technology to view the nervous system and customize adjustments to the client's needs. Masyk's expertise has been sought for patients ranging in age from one hour to 97 years––though he has a fondness for treating expecting mothers and flimsy cardboard cutouts.
With more than 20 years of chiropractic experience between them, Doctors Kevin and Gina Brown promote wellness and cultivate corporeal fortitude through a range of natural backbone-balancing treatments. During AquaMed dry hydrotherapy, clients remain fully clothed and control the massage, which deploys jets of water to soothe coarse dorsals without the awkwardness of donning inflatable water wings. First-time adjustees begin with a comprehensive examination of spinal and neurological health, as well as x-rays, to pinpoint potential trouble spots. After a consultation, trained spine sculptors then identify the appropriate adjustment technique to re-align wandering vertebrae, extinguish inflamed nerves, and straighten out burgeoning stegosaur plates.
Licensed and board-certified acupuncturist, and a Georgia native, Isa Holloway, who accrued expertise under the tutelage of Southwest Acupuncture College's Doctors of Oriental Medicine, facilitates full-body holistic healing with the strategic application of tiny needles during acupuncture treatments. Sessions aim to alleviate health woes—including allergies and sleep dysfunctions caused by recurring nightmares of cookie monsters under the bed—and additional pampering, such as topical herbs, hot tea, foot acupressure, and guided meditation, further encourage overall wellbeing. Alternatively, cosmetic acupuncture treatments may encourage the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, and patients have the option to pair sessions with microcurrent or light energies to further vivify faces.
Studded with vibrant violet walls and informational charts on the skeletal and muscular systems, Risner Chiropractic and Wellness Center’s decor—like its services—aims to help patrons feel at ease and better informed about their body. Its chiropractic adjustments, nutritional and exercise counseling, and massage-therapy services rework misaligned spines, tense muscles, and out-of-shape bodies to help clients without using prescription drugs.
