Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center’s lobby is a well-shadowed place, with dark-brown walls and slates of polished wood paneling surrounding leather booths and a bubbling aquarium. Perhaps that reflects the initial feelings of their clients, who arrive seeking relief from the everyday aches that can slow life to a crawl. The darkness gives way to light just beyond the front desk, where a modern training room awaits with weights and treadmills. Private treatment rooms come next, filled with warm massage beds keeping company with clay-colored walls and colorful modern art. Visitors should watch their steps, though—without care, they may run into limber shapes shifting through yoga poses, body-fusion groups sloughing away pounds, or loose-limb postmassage frames floating blissfully past.
Such are the obstacles of a tour inside Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center's sprawling facility, where the road to wellness passes through chiropractic treatments, family-fitness exercises, acupuncture tables, and massage beds. Owned by Dr. Corey J. Schneider, whose achievements and specialties are as vast as a poet's list of metaphors for underemployment, the facility's staff of doctors, acupuncturists, physical trainers, and nutritionists all utilize their respective expertise and the veritable playground of resources around them to help their clients overcome pain, injury, and stress.

Sessions may combine procedures including cupping and tui na massage with herbal products to address the bodily imbalances that contribute to disease.

Karla Hermann, a professional hypnotist who uses hypnotherapy as a safe and natural method to effectively help you quit smoking, leads the seminar. Although smokers have different levels of addiction, this hypnosis program applies to any smoker by using the mind-body approach to take you back to when you started smoking and disconnect the wires of your addiction. The system is designed to delve into the emotional triggers of what caused the addiction, and once your subconscious is desensitized, it's forced into a state of reorganization. This seminar can help you gradually taper off to become a non-smoker. The seminar will also include weight-control suggestions.
After studying chiropractic at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, Doctor of Chiropractic Brian W. Kurth took over a thriving clinic, then parlayed his success there into his own practice. Now at Kurth Chiropractic, he uses state-of-the-art technology to diagnose spines and help put them aright. Dr. Kurth scans patients' spines for muscle tension, misalignment, and vertebrae playing musical chairs before he develops a custom chiropractic plan. He then enlists massage therapists to ease away patients' pain and discomfort. Their strokes boost circulation and cause muscles to slowly uncoil.
