As he witnessed his massage patients returning over and over again with the same ailments, massage therapist Richard Aragon realized he wanted to do more for them. Conventional medicine had little appeal, and physical therapy seemed too similar to his massage skills. Ultimately, he landed on the study of chiropractic care. Now he tends to his patients with techniques he's been mastering since 1993, using a whole-person approach that treats both the causes and the symptoms of ailments and doesn't neglect the client's spare hand.

Doctors Scott and Melody DeMent, a husband-and-wife team, each followed a different path that led them toward chiropractic care. Scott started out as a chef in New Jersey before he decided to return to Arizona and follow in the footsteps of his chiropractor father. At the same time, Melody’s struggles with headaches and asthma made her turn to the field for her own health. The two met while attending New York Chiropractic College and shortly thereafter started their business, where they specialize in spinal therapies such as decompression and cold-laser treatments.
