Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Whetton journeyed around the country and the globe, from Southern California to the Philippines, in pursuit of both holistic and medical knowledge and experience. Developing a program that revolves around a combination of acupuncture, nutrition, and spinal decompression, Dr. Whetton honed his healing practice with the help of completely noninvasive treatments. While acupuncture calls on thousands of years of tradition to aid ailments such as headaches and allergies, spinal decompression uses modern technology—and some techniques from the distant future—to help relieve pain from sciatica, herniated disks, and injuries resulting from overzealous somersaults.
At The Rejuvenation Center, Dr. Brad Miller's, D.C., mission to treat the body without drugs or surgery has culminated into a menu brimming with noninvasive health and beauty services. Apart from traditional spinal adjustments, he and the staff oversee bodily ailments with eight types of massages. Ultrasound fat-reduction treatments shrink fat cells without breaking the skin, and radio frequency caps off the slenderizing process by firming the skin around retreating waistlines. A staff of aestheticians rounds out beauty regimens with waxing, chemical peels, and facials.
Lighthouse keepers safely guide ships to shore through turbulent, rocky waters in total darkness. Navigating today’s sea of health and fitness information can be equally overwhelming, so the trainers at Lighthouse Fitness take on a similar role to their spiritual predecessors. They guide gym members to healthier lifestyles, working to remove some of the obstacles along the way. In addition to leading motivational group fitness classes such as yoga or cardio boxing, they provide complimentary personal-training sessions and childcare services, which free parents to hit the treadmill without duct-taping their toddlers to their backs.
They dedicate a huge portion of their space to their indoor rock-climbing structure, which boasts more than 300 routes wending across its colorfully speckled surface. Further helping clients look their best, they treat them to purely beauty-focused services with a tanning spa and a full-service hair salon.
The seasoned specialists at Serenity Spa pamper clients with custom facials and massages in 60 minutes. In the signature facial, an expert aesthetician gently traces a planchette over the pores to tailor a treatment to the client's particular needs. During the signature massage, a therapist thwarts the effects of stress by loosening knots and manually melting toughened tissues to shoo out toxins and tension. In both treatments, caregivers advise clients on how best to care for their corps when faced with modern urban life and its unjust dearth of trained monkey butlers.
