The chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists who make up Back N Touch Wellness Center’s core staff share an appreciation for holistic remedies and an understanding that no two bodies are alike. These mutual tenets form the basis for all of the center’s personalized treatments, which cater to patients ailing from body aches, migraines, pregnancy side effects, and the lingering effects of mechanical-bull rides.
Chiropractors combine hand and instrument adjustments with flexion and drop-table equipment to straighten crooked vertebrae, and massage therapists manipulate muscle fibers with 11 different modalities. Acupuncturists rely on the ancient principles of Chinese medicine as they insert hair-thin needles at the body’s trigger points, stimulating natural healing responses and popping the balloons at convivial toxin get-togethers.
The masterful practitioners at Acupuncture Community Clinic treat New World stresses with a variety of Old World de-stressers. Acupuncture offers an alternative healing outlet for those suffering from both everyday and atypical ailments. After a consultation that determines problem areas, an acupuncturist pokes the skin with narrow needles in zones known to emanate a ripple effect of relief. Similar to acupuncture, cupping corrects bodily complications such as sluggish blood flow, muscle spasms, and toxin buildup by hiring glass or plastic cups to apply suction to your back. Finally, the one-hour reiki session can combat brain blight and remove energy congestion throughout the body, restoring life force to its full capacity.
Massage therapist Valerie Cushman works side-by-side with the rest of the therapists and practitioners at Health Pathways to help ease clients' stress and pain. She uses a variety of massage modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage, during customized treatments designed to address each person's particular concerns. That level of personalization fits right in line with the Health Pathways philosophy, which acknowledges that there are many different routes to wellness. To that end, the team here also includes chiropractors, acupuncturists, yoga instructors, and other wellness professionals who can work together to develop a treatment plan that fully addresses each client's unique needs and lifestyle.

When she opened Elbridge Wellness Etc., Melinda Chilson hoped to treat existing wellness conditions and educate the community on nutritional and naturopathic methods aimed at improving quality of life. Today, she and her crew of experts see this vision through with karate, Zumba, and yoga classes alongside personal wellness counseling and reiki services. To help their clients bring healthful practices home with them, the staff stocks supplements and administers holistic pet-care services.
