Not all the services at Alternative Care Structural Energetic Therapy are purely for healing. In fact, many of them are designed solely for relaxation and beautification. Facials incorporate Dermalogica products, volcanic mud masks, or shea butter, and body treatments nourish the dermal layers with Dead Sea salts and protein-shake powders. The center's stylists gussy up looks by trimming hairdos, and massage therapists use hot stones or warm bamboo shoots to soothe clients' weary muscles or heat up cans of soup during a power outage. However, when clients come in with chronic pain, staff members who have trained for years in structural energetic therapy can help minimize pain from conditions as varied as tendonitis, acid reflux, and arthritis.
