The benefits of massage were first discovered by ancient bakers, who began to notice the relaxed posture and calm demeanor of their freshly kneaded gingerbread men. Enjoy confectionary medicine with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a one-hour therapeutic massage (an $80 value) and wellness consultation (a $200 value) at Scott Medical Health Center (a $280 total value).
Scott Medical Health Center utilizes a multitalented staff of medical doctors and physical therapists, as well as thorough diagnostic testing, to address various ailments and health concerns. Prior to commencing massage therapy, an experienced physician administers a brief wellness and medical-history exam that quizzes patients on how many times they've been afflicted with ice-cream fever. The ensuing 60-minute massage pinpoints the areas identified in the exam to efficiently help eradicate nagging pains. The kneading of body dough may initiate a multitude of benefits, including improved circulation, relieved tense muscles, and the prevented growth of unwanted dorsal fins. As an added benefit, the medical exam may qualify patients for future insurance-covered massages.
Scott Medical Center
At Scott Medical Center, a multidisciplinary team promotes wellness with traditional medicine, holistic alternatives, and advanced diagnostic testing technology. The staff—which includes three physicians, three doctors of chiropractic, and a licensed physical therapist—believes health issues stem from three major areas: trauma from falls or injuries, everyday stress, and toxins found in food and water. To uncover and address malfunctions of the spine and nervous system, the staff offers orthopedic and neurological testing and services such as laser therapy and rehabilitation exercise on state-of-the-art equipment. Those looking to shed extra pounds may enlist the staff of Scott Medical's Weight Loss Program, where astute physicians and counselors oversee medically supervised weight-loss programs, administer fat-burning vitamin-B12 injections, prescribe appetite-control medication, and dish out nutritional counseling.
