Holistic Healthcare in Albany soothes the spines of the Dougherty County community, helping to alleviate persistent aches and other bodily ailments. Under the guidance of Doctor of Chiropractic Judith L. Hatch's masterful touch, problem joints can be shifted beyond their regular field of motion in order to correct specific maladies, including migraines, allergies, fibromyalgia, menstrual irregularities, and bed wetting. Chiropractic work can also reduce life-affecting aches and encourage the body to heal itself after traumatic instances of whiplash and innocent games of backgammon gone awry. Spine-aligning appointments can be scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
At Spring Chiropractic & Massage, licensed podiatrist Dr. Kent Biehler eschews drugs and surgery to help heal with noninvasive, holistic treatments instead. Chiropractic techniques are Springs's specialty, but patients also visit for laser fungus removal, nutritional counseling, and health screenings.
At Clear Sight Family Eyecare's two locations, both of which are within Walmart Optical centers, resident optometrist Dr. Michael Leary preps faces for new frames or contacts with thorough exams. While poring over eyes for aberrations, Dr. Leary also screens for signs of glaucoma and can treat dry eye, pink eye, and 2-D vision. His prescriptions can then be fitted into frames from the on-site selection, which covers a wide range of classic and contemporary styles suitable for all face shapes.
Tawnya Traylor Fleming?s dozen-plus years as a massage therapist have been spent relieving patients of stress and pain in a chiropractor?s office and being her own boss at Massage Me Knots. What makes her massages unique is the way she tailors each one to the client's current needs. Some people may prefer the gentle strokes of a relaxation massage to help unwind after a stressful week, while others may require deep-tissue kneading to alleviate chronic pain. Tawnya specializes in all of these and has an arsenal of other calming tools at the ready, such as heated stones, hot towels, and essential oils.
Dr. Charles Kent has practiced sclerotherapy since 1998, adding more treatment methodologies—such as vein closures—as he continued training over the years.

Schank also specializes in sclerotherapy, which she, too, has practiced since 1998.
