Sutures, scalpels and bottles of pills have no place at Hurley Chiropractic, where the team practices holistic healthcare that taps into patients' own healing abilities. During exams, the team snaps x-rays and checks range of motion to pinpoint the source of issues such as back pain, joint pain, and headaches. From there, they devise custom treatment plans that can include everything from low-risk adjustments and spinal decompression to massage therapy. The team also helps clients shed unwanted pounds with B-12 injections and nutrition counseling.
Before helming Majestic Massage LLC, massage practitioner Dan fell off a roof and shattered his leg, altering his life path and exposing him to the wonders of physical therapy and massage therapy. Dan left the experience with newfound knowledge and an appreciation of recovery—an appreciation that drove him to become a therapist himself, helping others relax and shed stress, tension, and unwelcome shoulder-perched parrots.
Licensed massage therapist Shawn D. Swank helms 2S Massage Therapy, where he tends to muscles with a variety of massages. He offers modalities such as deep-tissue and Swedish massage, as well as reflexology and aromatherapy.
Their specialties: soothing massages and slimming body-contouring treatments
Most unique massage: bamboo fusion, in which the therapist uses smooth, heated bamboo tools to knead tense muscles
How to make any massage even better: add on aromatherapy, a deep muscle treatment, or a warm dip in paraffin wax
Best way to detox and relax at the same time: a session in the infrared sauna, which can help improve circulation, boost the immune system, and relieve stress
For exercise that's both calming and therapeutic: sign up for the wellness center's yoga or Qi Gong classes
All About Massage and Wellness's licensed therapists unburden weary physiques and consciences with a slate of soothing rubdowns performed with eco-friendly products. Six kinds of massages and an online inventory of bath products and lotions help clients experience spa-grade treatments in their own bathtubs as well as the center's two locations. Four types of aromatherapy can compliment massages or infuse lotions with ingredients such as ylang-ylang or eucalyptus; these blends help unwind tense muscles or boost immune systems without having to disguise vitamins in a plate of orzo pasta.
