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.

Tia Falcone wasn't always the muscular fitness afficionado she is today. In fact, there was a time when she was extremely overweight. It was only after she developed a fitness plan and healthy eating habits that Tia won her slim physique and sculpted abs, and eventually went on to earn her certification as a personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Today, Tia pulls from her unique experiences and years of training to help clients reach their fitness goals at her own studio—Tia Falcone Fitness. Within the bright space, Tia conducts personal-training sessions and group fitness classes such as kickboxing and body sculpting. She leads her students through high-intensity cardio and strength-training exercises using functional equipment, including exercise balls, resistance bands, and kettlebells.
The color blue comes in many shades, be it periwinkle, powder blue, or baby blue. Should you name a shade of blue, there's a good chance that color graces the walls of MLO Salon. In an effort to channel the calming, peaceful feeling of water, trickling streams, and leaky faucets that drip to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat," MLO’s owner, Maria Orbinati, latched onto a blue color palette and never looked back. The end result was a calming, modern feel—yet one set in elegant relief by Greek columns and arches. Almost as an homage to the décor, the staff performs a deep hydration facial to mitigate wrinkles with a hyaluronic system. But this relaxing environment serves as an ideal locale for spa services beyond just facials; the team also renders hair, makeup, and nail treatments.
