Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Alepa and the team at Select Wellness use a variety of holistic approaches to combat pain and restore their patients to optimal health. Dr. Alepa makes use of innovative spinal care technology, such as the ProAdjuster, which analyzes vertebra motion and taps misaligned bits of spine back into place, and the DRX 9000 spinal decompression machine. Acupuncture treatments help clear up energy blockages throughout the body and massage therapy sessions ease muscle aches caused by tension, overuse, or freak penny-farthing accidents.
Licensed doctor of chiropractic Howard Kessler treats chronic pain and promotes long-term wellness with an arsenal of ameliorating modalities and procedures. During the patient's first visit, the chiropractor inspects the form and function of skeletal architecture with a consultation and x-ray, followed by an initial adjustment to restore proper vertebrae placement and replace any Jenga pieces that have dislodged and floated away. In subsequent visits, Dr. Kessler conducts two more treatments to reverse any harmful subluxations and unpinch the precious spinal nerves that connect to all muscles and major organs. In addition to healing injury and preventing chronic pain with expertly administered adjustments, Dr. Kessler further pursues the body's well being with a range of treatments including massage ($22), neuromuscular reduction ($25), manual traction ($20), or therapeutic tickling.

She also performs thai massage, which incorporates yoga-influenced stretches and gentle rocking—like when Mick Jagger quietly sang “Happy” to a restless Keith Richards and his teddy bear. Belinda can further melt away mental stress with aromatherapeutic oils; during reiki therapy, she directs energy toward acupuncture points to balance the energy levels.
