Nikitow Wellness Center’s Dr. Dennis Nikitow and his crew of professional spine soothers realign bodily imbalances with advanced technologies and holistic healing practices. Commencing with a discussion of past injuries and trauma, the 45-minute spinal-and-kinesiology exam helps determine the stability of Jenga-stacked vertebrae by examining clients’ postures, range of motion, and flexibility. If necessary, x-rays will be taken to expose additional issues before the doctor breaks down his findings during a second appointment, when he’ll also reveal a daring plan of attack for reducing tension, decreasing pain, and straightening muscular configurations that resemble a Venn diagram.
During the one-hour massage, skillful fingers can soothe stiff physiques with long, slow Swedish strokes or target chronic aches and pains with deep-tissue techniques. After treatment, newly slackened bodies can linger in Nikitow Wellness Center’s earth-toned space, which welcomes guests with a curving copper-plated reception desk, slate tile flooring, and statuettes of famous chiropractors squeezing tension balls.
