The burden of aches and pains makes it impossible for humans to run as fast as cheetahs, which is why the human diet is virtually devoid of gazelle meat. Keep fast food from getting away with today’s Groupon to Elixia Wellness Group: for $35, you get a massage wellness package (up to a $90 total value), which includes:
- 60-minute massage (up to a $75 value)
- 60-minute infrared sauna session (a $15 value)</p>
Elixia Wellness Group’s licensed muscle manipulators promote general wellness with restorative and nurturing treatments. During a 60-minute massage, long, gliding strokes compliment gentle kneading to ease tension and loosen muscle knots tied by microscopic sailors. As a result, improved circulation evicts cellular waste, and a fortified immune system pummels germs trying to infiltrate the body’s borders. An accompanying 60-minute infrared sauna session may expel toxins, boost cardiovascular health, and grant night vision to thwart evildoers. Treatments are tailored to each individual’s unique needs.
Elixia Wellness Group
Owner Dr. Ryan Minarik is just one of three naturopathic physicians at Elixia Wellness Group, and one of four licensed acupuncturists. As if that wasn't enough expertise, his staff also includes practitioners of Chinese medicine, a chiropractic doctor and yoga teacher, massage therapists, and even a skin technician. With such healers backing him up, Dr. Minarik tackles maladies of all shapes and sizes using a holistic approach that revolves around the individual. Each treatment takes the patient's history into account, as well as factors such as genetics, before tracking down the root cause of issues instead of just medicating symptoms. Once the practitioners have pinpointed the problem, they can assemble a plan of attack using their multiple fields of expertise.
Although Elixia Wellness Group's treatment philosophy stretches back centuries, it keeps an eye on the ever-changing landscape of healing technology. Recently, Dr. Minarik has begun stimulating postinjury healing with platelet-rich-plasma injections. The contemporary method separates platelets—treasure troves of potential regeneration—from the patient’s own blood before returning them to the circulatory stream at the point where torn tendons or arthritis cause pain.
