Clients can't help but feel as if they've entered a sacred space when walking through The Sanctuary's light-filled studio. Half fitness studio, half massage and acupuncture clinic, the warm and welcoming North Lake Tahoe wellness center offers yoga, Pilates, and bodywork in a home-like setting. Within the log-cabin-style building, certified instructors guide students of all experience levels through relaxing and vigorous sessions alike, including Vinyasa-yoga and Bar Effect classes. Besides its adult offerings, The Sanctuary affords adolescent yoga practitioners a chance to tame stress and develop healthy mind-body connections through its teen program.
The certified spine tenders at Family First Chiropractic apply gentle, hands-on techniques to treat a wide range of conditions from headaches and auto injuries to asthma and ear infections. Healing regimens kick off with a 30- to 45-minute consultation and exam, during which the chiropractic doctor thoroughly combs through medical history, listens to concerns, and treks down spinal mountain ranges in search of abnormalities, tenderness, and gold. An x-ray exposes the hidden goings-on between lumbar and disc, and helps the doctor tailor a treatment plan. Clients then recline for half an hour as dexterous fingers coax tension out of subdermal tissue with soothing strokes and piano ballads played across the spine, easing muscles into sublime submission.

Though the Accident Injury Clinic at European Fitness Center occupies but a fraction of the facility's 25,000 square feet, it serves as home to many of the available services. The doctors who work within the clinic treat patients by appointment or walk-in, providing a free consultation and accident injury evaluation. They then prescribe a treatment plan that could involve chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, and exercise. Beyond the clinic's confines, the fitness center hosts kickboxing and power yoga while also housing multiple salons and even an onsite restaurant. Here, specialists accomplish everything from helping clients achieve weight-loss goals to teaching them self-defense skills.
Just like a home’s plumbing system, the colon can accumulate waste over time, causing sluggish function. At Colon Hydrotherapy Reno, therapist Linda Tierney helps clear away these toxins, which can result in improved digestion and energy. Her magic tool is a small tube, from which a low-pressure flow of water washes through the colon. It loosens and clears out built-up waste, all while the client reclines comfortably, modestly covered. In addition to normal sessions, Linda administers deluxe hydrotherapy treatments that include an infusion of organic coffee to aid in liver detoxification and probiotics to further improve digestive function.
Doctors of Chiropractic Mike and Matt Johnson studied at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, which was founded by D. D. Palmer and is lauded as the world’s first school for the study of chiropractics. The duo relies on the holistic spinal-care techniques they learned at that venerable institution as they treat issues such as back pain, headaches, and limbo injuries. They are joined at their practice by a team of licensed massage therapists, who use therapeutic kneading to reduce stress, ease aches, and improve range of motion.
