Having sore muscles, like signing a five-year lease or wearing lead socks, makes it difficult to move. Evict tensely wound tenants with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a 55-minute signature massage at Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center in Glendale (a $70 value).
Inside Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center's private rooms, licensed therapists apply therapeutic, neuromuscular, and deep-tissue techniques in order to soothe bodies during 55-minute sessions. Clients repose on warm beds as nimble fingers untangle muscular knots and satisfy their unique needs, such as reducing stress and pain, improving flexibility, or treating injuries caused by trying to throw a water balloon at a hang glider. If desired, sessions may culminate with hot stones, hot towels, or an ice massage to help ebb away inflammation and relieve tension. While waiting for the massage to commence, patients can begin the relaxation process by gazing into an aquarium teeming with fish or by listening to the soft cooing of the abstract artwork napping on the walls throughout the office.
Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center
Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center’s lobby is a well-shadowed place, with dark-brown walls and slates of polished wood paneling surrounding leather booths and a bubbling aquarium. Perhaps that reflects the initial feelings of their clients, who arrive seeking relief from the everyday aches that can slow life to a crawl. The darkness gives way to light just beyond the front desk, where a modern training room awaits with weights and treadmills. Private treatment rooms come next, filled with warm massage beds keeping company with clay-colored walls and colorful modern art. Visitors should watch their steps, though—without care, they may run into limber shapes shifting through yoga poses, body-fusion groups sloughing away pounds, or loose-limb postmassage frames floating blissfully past.
Such are the obstacles of a tour inside Goodyear Chiropractic Health Center's sprawling facility, where the road to wellness passes through chiropractic treatments, family-fitness exercises, acupuncture tables, and massage beds. Owned by Dr. Corey J. Schneider, whose achievements and specialties are as vast as a poet's list of metaphors for underemployment, the facility's staff of doctors, acupuncturists, physical trainers, and nutritionists all utilize their respective expertise and the veritable playground of resources around them to help their clients overcome pain, injury, and stress.
