Gailes Chiropractic treats a mélange of musculoskeletal maladies in patients of all ages. Doctors Jared and Diana Gailes begin each introductory session with a comprehensive consultation and exam to help pinpoint the cause of spinal stress. The expert aligners then perform two adjustments to straighten stubborn subluxations and manipulate veering vertebrae back into place. Hydromassage offers a more aquatically inclined therapy without the need for nose plugs or floral-print swimsuits. During the 30-minute session fully clothed patients lie down on a waterbed-like table while waves of heated water lap against back beaches to produce a relaxing tidal treatment with adjustable intensity.
An accomplished physician, Doctor of Chiropractic Naomi Malik graduated summa cum laude from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Now in her Barrington office, Dr. Malik employs a state-of-the-art chiropractic method known as the neuromechanical technique for safe, gentle, and laser-accurate adjustments. Additional services include spinal traction, rehabilitative exercises, and nutrition supplements.
At New Hope Family Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Rodger B. Lincoln relies on the Gonstead technique to correct misaligned spines. Adhering to the technique’s philosophy of pre-adjustment research and analysis, Dr. Lincoln first gathers as much info about his patients’ body structures as possible. He conducts consultations, chiropractic exams, and, at his Riverside location, takes x-rays. Once he is properly informed, he pinpoints the troubled area and delivers a gentle but precise adjustment to misaligned vertebrae.
Dr. Pedro DeAlmeida dedicates himself to translating spine health into whole-body well-being. Backbone believers who roll themselves into DeAlmeida Chiropractic & Rehab for a thorough exam of their weary vertebrae (a $75 value) can receive treatment that will help relieve back, leg, and arm pain; increase ease and range of motion; healthify joints; and improve balance. A 30-minute soft-tissue massage (a $60 value) increases blood flow, unknots muscle tissue, and kindly asks inflammatory chemicals to wash their mouths out and find the exit.
Dorothy Souza oversees a team of metaphysically buff intuitives who scry the spirit realm in adherence with a number of ancient traditions. Readers preside with Wiccan wisdom over classes and ceremonies, and assist with tarot and psychic readings, performed virtually every day, unlike the English queen's crab walk. For physical ailments, the healers prescribe similarly esoteric techniques such as reiki, a Japanese method of “laying on hands,” and other modalities, which aims to disintegrate the physical blockages to one's chi. On Sundays, the First Spiritualist Church of Rhode Island congregates at Positive New Beginnings, and some believers on staff may at times be able to attempt to reach out to the shrouded world after this one.
