What You'll Get
Without a back, you'd never know which way was forward, making dramatic exits confusing and awkward. Reward your back for not being up front with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a chiropractic consultation, a custom orthotics scan, and a one-hour massage of your choice (a $145 total value) at Oien Family Chiropractic. Get everything straightened out at its modern office near Augustana College.
Chiropractic isn't like astrophysics, where any quack with a telescope can set up shop; doctors of chiropractic receive at least four academic years of education and pass national board examinations before receiving their ceremonial telescopes. Dr. Oien is a graduate of Palmer College and believes in treating the whole patient, which is why his consultation will encompass both your persistent physical aches and pains as well as recent mental tribulations. Once Dr. Oien has gotten to know you and your wellness goals—whether the goal is to recover from a specific ailment or simply enhance your already excellent overall health—Dr. Oien will also perform a scan of your feet to keep on hand should you ever decide to complement your treatment plan with custom orthotics (in-shoe stabilizers that keep the spine aligned).
After you've discussed expectations and treatment options, Dr. Oien will treat you to your choice of Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, or therapeutic massage. Swedish uses light strokes to relieve stress and improve circulation, whereas deep tissue uses more-intense pressure to untie stubborn knots buried deep within the body's Balrog-infested depths. A reflexology massage applies pressure to specific points on the feet and hands to stimulate certain nerves that directly correspond to the body's organs, renewing the flow of vigor to neglected corners of your being. Finally, therapeutic massage helps relieve muscle pain and spasms accumulated from a summer spent interning as a crash-test dummy.
Patients say sitting at a desk for eight hours a day isn't the same after the amiable back-benders are through with you: joints fit together, back pain vanishes, and your guilt for ditching your prom date years ago disappears. A massage session can also help with nerve, muscle, and organ disorders, and fight fatigue and depression.
