The team members at Sloan’s Lake Chiropractic aims to improve upon modern health care’s reliance on drugs. They operate under the premise that medications are catchall tools designed to treat pain by numbing the body. Rather than introducing numbness to the body, the chiropractors at Sloan’s Lake seek out pain at its source. To do so, they examine the alignment of the spine and neck with hands and x-rays, looking for pinched nerves that can cause headaches, neck pain, or back pain.
After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries. With this knowledge and experience stowed safely in his hippocampus's glovebox, he eventually launched his own nationwide franchise: HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab.
Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.

For more than 30 years, patients have come to Green Mountain Chiropractic and Massage for pain relief and a boost in their overall health. But before offering any treatments, Dr. Mark Wolff, D.C. or his team of specialists work with clients to understand their concerns and create a customized treatment plan that targets their needs. They then realign spines with traditional adjustments and perform advanced treatments such as computer-controlled spinal decompression and deep-tissue laser therapy, which stimulates healing on a cellular level.
Dr. Wolff, D.C. also specializes in holistic healing methods. As a certified acupuncturist, he has performed thousands of treatments over the years, using traditional fine-tipped needles or, alternatively, laser beams to relieve bodies of a variety of aliments.

With more than three decades of experience under her belt, Lucinda Simpson joined with fellow colon hydrotherapist Laura Yetzer to establish Lavage Wellness Center, where gentle streams of water flush out detritus and toxins to bolster wellness. The two get to know their clients during consultations that establish the parameters of each personalized treatment, which not only supports digestive function but activates reflex points that inspire feelings of positivity and well-being. They partner their signature service with other forms of cleansing, including infrared-sauna sessions and detoxifying foot baths, which use ionic charges to pull toxins from the body and strengthen intercellular telepathy.
