Captained by Dr. Pete Sottile, 4700 Chiropractic’s skilled massage therapists specialize in back and neck pain relief and knead away aches with custom massage-therapy sessions. Swedish massage incorporates a series of gentle, relaxation-inducing strokes that alleviate muscular tension, foster circulation, and mold bodies trying to transform into Lego figurines. The light, gliding contact of effleurage strokes gently unwinds surface-level muscles, and the firm pressure of the petrissage stroke helps mend adhesions deeper within the connective tissue. Friction and vibration techniques are also used, along with tapotement, a percussive stroke designed to awaken the nervous system, release lymphatic buildup, and one-up the drum solo from “Wipe Out.” Groupon customers can enjoy a single massage to relieve their body in a single visit or purchase packages of three or five sessions to extend and possibly enhance their healing over a longer period.
Rosetree Wellness Center
The chiropractor behind Rosetree Wellness Center, Dr. Pete Sottile, treats a variety of conditions, from headaches to back pain and whiplash from auto accident. But no matter what he's treating, he always tends to the central hub of the nervous system, the spine. The idea is to fix the root cause of these ailments, the same way staying up all night fixes the root cause of snoring.
Dr. Sottile doesn't do it alone; other specialists help too. A licensed nutritionist, for example, helps visitors revamp their diets. The clinic's new fitness classes, meanwhile, boost flexibility and endurance with yoga, and Zumba.
