The ancient Egyptians established the first guidelines for reducing stress through reflexology and embalming your Atari 2600 to prepare it for the afterlife. Experience modern developments of venerable wisdom with today's Groupon: for $37, you get reflexology and trigger-point therapy at Oklahoma Reflexology in Harrah (a $75 value).
At Oklahoma Reflexology, certified reflexologist Christie Giles uses an arsenal of soothing massage techniques to ease tension, reduce pain, and promote long-term, holistic health. During the 45-minute session, she'll first release pressure from reflex nodal points on the hands and feet in an effort to clear blocked meridian pathways and promote circulation. Then trigger-point therapy can reeducate wayward muscles that cause pain, aiming to restore a greater range of motion and relieve tension more efficiently than shipping yourself to Hawaii in an express-rate box. After the soothing treatment, clients can bask in the sunlight that streams through floor-to-ceiling windows to play on the office's polished wood décor accents.
Harrah Chiropractic & Center for Natural Medicine
Harrah Chiropractic & Center for Natural Medicine treats its patients holistically. That means the center's staff doesn't just help clients shed pounds with treatments such as laser therapy and injections. Under the guidance of licensed chiropractor Dr. Damon Coffman, they also provide lifestyle advice, including nutrition counseling and exercise blueprints. Patients can even sign up for a free website membership, which includes wellness tips from a monthly Healthy Living newsletter. It's all part of the center's "whole-person approach," which advocates treating the underlying causes of a patient's symptoms, not just the symptoms that get jammed up in their big toe.
