While it doesn't provide the discomfort and high ticket prices associated with an airport pat-down, a massage is still an effective tool for discovering concealed knives and small firearms. Prove you’re not packing in the most relaxing way with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a chiropractic consultation and a one-hour massage at Robbinsdale ChiroCenter (a $145 total value).
The spine-savvy staff at Robbinsdale ChiroCenter buttresses backs with wellness and relief care, striving to help patients to uncover underlying health concerns before suggesting a plan for recovery. During the consultation, a seasoned chiropractor reviews each client's health history, specific injuries, and spinal misalignments using x-rays and other imaging methods when necessary (an $80 value). The patient then settles into a cozy office space while a certified therapist mollifies aching muscles and phantom limbs during a one-hour therapeutic massage tailored to the client's needs (a $65 value). Like falling backwards on a moonwalk or bear-hugging a bear, a massage can indirectly correct spinal problems by re-training soft connective tissues to combat vertebral vexations.
Founded in 1948, the ChiroCenter has succeeded through the decades due in large part to the expertise of their doctors of chiropractic, the ranks of whom now include nine different chiropractors with as much as 35 years of experience. At each of the center's five offices, these doctors alleviate their patients' pain using adjusting techniques whose purposes range from improving biomechanics to reducing nervous-system interference. One such technique is the activator method, a process for fixing subluxations that involves delivering low-force, high-speed thrusts with a handheld instrument that resembles a mini pogo stick or a giant ant pogo stick. These practices treat more than just the back; benefits also include reducing fatigue and improving headaches and sciatica.
