Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Myriah Hinchey strives to restore vitality and promote longevity through a bevy of spa services and preventive medicines. The one-hour Swedish massage sees a licensed massage therapist mollycoddling sinews with deep, firm strokes designed to improve circulation and release pent-up tension. Toxins are lured out of lymph nodes and muscular lairs with nothing more than the therapist's dexterous digits and a candy bar dangling from a fishing line.
At Colchester Massage LLC, licensed massage therapists banish pesky pains with tension-relieving Swedish massages. Muscle kneaders begin each session by answering questions and uncovering any muscle woes caused by stress or challenging an octopus at Twister. Using the Swedish technique, the massage therapist then incorporates five different types of long, flowing strokes to soothe tense musculature and reduce stiffness. The treatment may be beneficial for those suffering from chronic back pain, arthritis, and achy fatigue caused by bending over backwards to please an upside-down boss. For a $15 fee, patrons can upgrade their sessions to deep-tissue or hot-stone, or for $5 add aromatherapy.
Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.
ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.
