At 528 Wellness, Sheri and Joseph Shields optimize bodily operations and clear interiors of harmful toxins with an assortment of vigor-boosting treatments. FDA-approved TurboSonic whole-body vibration platforms headline the shop's lineup, shimmying bodies with sound waves that activate contractions in various muscle groups, spur metabolism, and help biceps find the bass their debut album lacked. Tootsies wiggle side-to-side with a chi spinal relaxation machine, which increases range of motion and encourages oxygen absorption for more tranquil sleep with passive aerobic exercise. Thermal massage treatments ease aches with gliding rollers and radiant far-infrared energy, and can be accentuated by red or blue LED therapy to promote skin-smoothing collagen production or eliminate acne-causing bacteria. 528 Wellness also lures environmental toxins out through footbaths that use ionic action to draw impurities from the feet in much the same way pool lifeguards eliminate robotic invaders by goading them to cannonball into the deep end.
