220 Fitness and Wellness’s team of licensed and certified practitioners nurture clients’ physical health and mental well-being with an array of holistic methods. After a through evaluation to discuss symptoms and medical history, chiropractors realign vertebrae with gentle hands and a spine-shaped billiard-ball rack. Aching muscles release long-held tension balloons under the skilled hands of a massage therapist who draws from an array of massage modalities, including relaxing Swedish and shiatsu methods that mimic acupuncture techniques with fingers instead of needles. Deep-tissue and sports techniques target injuries and the lactic acid that accumulates after working out or battling a sinister windmill. Acupuncture specialists draw from ancient Chinese techniques to target specific ailments, such as indigestion or back pain, using tiny, strategically placed needles.
220 Fitness and Wellness
Matteo Baker didn't put “220” in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be “second to none.” With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.
