Much like a pocket watch, the human body is a complicated series of interconnected parts that can't count to numbers greater than 60. Tune up your biological gears with today's Groupon: for $49, you get an initial chiropractic examination (a $110 value) and 30-minute massage (a $35 value) at Body in Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Vancouver, Washington (a $145 total value).
Body in Balance's staff of well-wishers employ a multitude of noninvasive holistic services, seeking out systemic imbalances and aiding in the alleviation of pain and stress. An initial examination begins with a consultation for patients to discuss health goals and learn about the chiropractic options available to them. The following postural analysis hand-checks each joint of the spine for proper alignment, searching for vertebral subluxations that can contribute to inflammation, pain, and decreased spinal mobility. Surface EMG and thermal scans probe below the dermal layers, checking for the abnormal electrical activity or heat imbalances that tend to accompany misalignment. X-rays may also be taken if necessary.
After the comprehensive examination, the staff then begins to compile data, scheduling the patient's soothing 30-minute massage, in addition to a follow-up appointment to discuss findings and possible treatment plans. Body in Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center recommends that visitors complete the new-patient paperwork before their first appointment, preferably under the light of a full moon.
