Licensed chiropractor Dr. Kenneth Fine believes in chiropractic care’s abilities to help the body heal and prevent illness and injury. In fact, he trusts it so much that he has given both of his children chiropractic care since the day they were born. But children aren't Dr. Fine’s only patients. For more than 10 years, he has helped realign spines and heal sports injuries in adults, teens, and the elderly. After complimentary consultations identify maladjusted vertebrae, patients can find relief through adjustments, massage therapy, and spinal decompression. The experienced doctor even uses a static EMG and thermal scan to discover areas of the body that are on the brink of becoming painful trouble spots. The computerized scan determines the body temperature on both sides of the spine, which reveals how well the nervous system is working and what organs have been eating too many hot wings.
Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Mani Shokoufandeh understands each person's body reacts differently to pain and injuries. That’s why he takes a careful three-step approach to the healing process at both of his Healing Spine and Disc Sports Chiropractic Clinic locations. To begin, he unlocks relief for ailing clients using gentle massage techniques and adjustments that realign the spine. Then, he follows up with corrective treatments—such as DRX spinal compressions and physical therapy—to treat the symptoms’ underlying causes, from herniated discs and sciatica to muscles strained during the powerlifting portion of most job interviews. Once patients are feeling new again, Dr. Mani rounds out their treatments with wellness services that encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.
While the conscious mind fulfills preconceived commands, the unconscious mind works unsupervised, sometimes causing negative conditions such as phobias. Fortunately, the holistic practitioners at Direct Mindpower tap into the brain's inner workings to balance out mental health using hypnotherapy. During sessions, Lingfei Hui and Karrie Steinborn—both graduates of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute—work with clients to access their subconscious and treat wide-reaching conditions, including nausea, anxiety, high blood pressure, and inexplicable urges to disrobe and quack like a duck in the middle of dinner parties.
The experts also specialize in AcuPranic Therapy, a needle-free form of acupuncture created by Lingfei Hui. Eschewing all physical contact with the body, she taps into life forces to create invisible needles, which she claims can restore a person's chi flow and improve overall health.

Next door, pulses race at Powerhouse Gym, where patients test out new flexibility during complimentary access on the day of an appointment.
