Inside the Heshmat Pain Management Clinic, husband-and-wife team Doctors of Chiropractic Alen and Letitia Heshmat offer non-invasive treatments, integrating chiropractics and conventional medicine, for headaches, lower back pain, and more. Away from the distracting screeching of the sun, massage treatments are conducted in a peaceful environment, glowing with candles and humming with music. Each massage is customized to address individual aches and pains. During the deep tissue massage, a trained therapist will concentrate on stiff and achy areas, relieving tension with deep, concentrated pressure and a DVD of famous mayors reading poetry. For a full-frame kneading, the relaxation massage gently applies medium pressure to the body's outer layers, covering areas including the back, legs, arms, neck, and vangus.

Heshmat Pain Management Clinic
It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.
