Healing Centers of America's wellness experts help bodies heal from injuries and fight chronic pain all without surgery. Chiropractors might determine the source of pain during chiropractic exams, and then perform adjustments to realign vertebrae and take pressure off the disks between them. Massage therapists might manipulate the body's soft tissues to improve mobility during ChiroMassages. These kneadings shun the add-ons associated with traditional spas—aromatherapy oils, models feeding clients morsels of cheese—and focus on rehabilitation.
Another popular massage at Healing Centers of America, the HydroMassage, relies on waves and jets of heated water to ease tension and soothe muscles. This hands-free kneading allows clients to remain fully clothed. Or, clients might accelerate their body's natural healing response through whole-body-vibration therapy, which also tones muscles, increases cellular oxygen uptake, and promotes lymphatic drainage.
