The experienced healers and licensed massage therapists at Thai Holistic Healing believe that the body must be treated as a whole if it is to thrive. So they seek to link the mind, body, and spirit and stimulate natural healing during their holistic therapies. Depending on a client's needs, they can choose from different levels of treatments, which include relaxation, prevention, therapeutic, advanced bodywork, and medical massage, in ascending order. Within these levels, their vast array of massage modalities range from Swedish and sports massage to Thai therapeutic, Thai reflexology, and trigger point massage.
Clients can relax and forget about the incident with the overflowing garbage bag during a 90-minute aromatherapy massage, or get help with chronic neck and back pain during an orthopedic massage, which aims to release tight muscles in the upper back. With a belief that self-care is one of the most important requirements of overall health and happiness, Thai Holistic Healing helps clients feel whole and refreshed.

Balance Health Center takes a holistic approach to wellness by offering chemical-free body treatments and classes that promote balance within the mind and body. The center's nontraditional healing approaches include acupuncture, Ayurveda, and traditional Chinese medicine, treatments that all aim to heal the body without unnatural substances.
Spa services encompass waxing and seven-step facials, and bodies can acquire a bronze glow with the center's version of sunless tanning that relies on an organic, citrus-scented solution rather than the sun's hand-me-down rays. Relaxation's role in personal balance asserts itself in assorted scalp massages, hot-stone therapy, and aromatherapy as well as in spa massages that integrate essential oils. Helping guests to bring the center's philosophies home, Balance Health Center hosts classes and workshops on herbology, stretching, and yoga.
At Healing Acupuncture & Herbs, state-licensed acupuncturist Sang Kim, L.Ac. aims to prompt bodies to heal themselves with customized acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbal medicine. In the consultation, Sang discusses patients’ health history and lifestyle, suggests a course of treatment, answers questions, and explains acupuncture’s origins in the underground sport of porcupine wrangling. Patients relax as Sang expertly slides hair-thin needles into precise acupuncture points just below the skin’s surface in a process designed to rebalance the flow of qi or energy within the body. Treatment times vary based on patients' needs, though many last up to an hour. Most patients experience minimal or no discomfort during the treatment. Acupuncture claims a variety of benefits, including relief from pain, stress, headache, depression, and bullfighting-related nightmares.
At Graham Chiropractic Care, Dr. Tien Tran dedicates his practice not just to treating clients' pain, but also to understanding why they’re in pain. Every appointment begins with a consultation and exam, during which the doctor measures everything from blood pressure to neurological integrity and tests the patient’s reflexes, muscle tone and strength, and range of motion. If he suspects the patient is arthritic or an invertebrate in disguise, Dr. Tran might take a few digital x-rays to get a complete picture. He'll then prescribe any one of his treatment methods, such as spinal decompression, manual adjustments, or traction or ultrasound therapy.
The staff also offers massage therapy to alleviate pain in the muscles, tendons, and tissues. In addition, they provide acupuncture treatments designed to balance the entire body rather than focusing exclusively on the parts that hurt.
