WaterMassage Centers use the power of water to fight chronic pain without surgery—or any invasive treatment at all. Their chief service, the HydroMassage, relies on waves and jets of heated water to ease tension and soothe muscles. This hands-free kneading allows clients to remain fully clothed. It also shuns the add-ons associated with traditional spas—aromatherapy oils, models feeding clients morsels of cheese—and focus on rehabilitation. Also, clients might accelerate their body's natural healing response through whole-body vibration therapy, which also tones muscles, increases cellular oxygen uptake, and promotes lymphatic drainage.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
_When people think "Chiropractic" they often think back pain. While we help scores of back pain patients get the pain free, what makes us different is that we offer many other services like blood testing and analysis, functional medicine, massage, spinal decompression, laser therapy and more. _
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
_Thrive Health Systems began as a typical chiropractic office, but over the last five years its philosophy and practice has expanded to be a preventative health care facility.
Thrive has been such a hit that it has three locations, Denver, Colorado Springs and Atlanta, and it continues to expand. _
What do you love most about your job?
_We love the 1000s of success stories we have been a part of. Check out our videos and testimonials and see all the smiling faces. Health is the lens through which we all live our lives. We literally get to help people get their lives back and live a better, more fulfilled life. You can't beat that. _
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
_We were featured on Channel 5 KOAA News because we helped a young man get his life back who was shot in the face and heart. We used laser therapy and chiropractic to get his pain down from a 10 to a 2. He was shot while attempting to save a woman from a shooter. The video is one our website. _
Holistic well-being requires a multifaceted approach to healthcare, and 100% Ageless embraces four of those facets: chiropractic care, Zerona laser treatments, Neuro Emotional Technique, and nutrition.
Doctor of Chiropractic Deb Riekeman draws upon more than 32 years of chiropractic experience as she performs gentle alignments and restores healthy function to the spine and throughout the nervous system. To aid her efforts, she occasionally incorporates instruments into her low-force adjustments, and she and her staff use low-level-laser technology to speed up recovery times. They also use laser systems for cosmetic purposes, shrinking fat cells and contouring limbs, waistlines, or vestigial wings with Zerona technology.
Though it's important for clients to feel pain free and confident in their appearances, Dr. Riekeman recognizes that only treating bodies ignores an important facet of well-being—emotion. Neuro Emotional Technique attempts to alleviate emotional stress by helping visitors recognize the connection between emotions and physical symptoms while using therapeutic bodywork to ease those symptoms.
The last facet of well-being emphasizes nutrition and provides clients with a personalized plan to begin living a healthier lifestyle. Plans can include supplements to help everything from hormonal imbalances to high cholesterol.
After receiving his MBA and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Tomshack opened his own practice. But one wasn't enough. He needed a real challenge, so he opened two more—all while studying the successes of other industries. With this knowledge and experience stowed safely in his hippocampus's glovebox, he eventually launched his own nationwide franchise: HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab.
Today, his chiropractors work alongside massage therapists and rehab experts as they craft custom action plans to help their patients overcome common ailments—such as neck pain and headaches—as well as severe conditions. Their Progressive Rehab method combines chiropractic techniques with rehabilitation therapies to relieve nerve pressure and pain. When they aren't nudging rebellious vertebrae, staffers stock a gourmet coffee bar with complimentary treats that always know just what to say.
By appraising the whole body, including one's strength, flexibility, and posture, Doctor of Chiropractic Melissa Harlow is able to prescribe treatments that help restore balance to her patients' lives. Dr. Harlow is trained in a wide array of chiropractic methods, including therapeutic taping. The only Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner™ in Colorado Springs, she utilizes this method to help bodies heal naturally. Kinesio taping helps support and stabilize muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. Not just a trendy art project, Kinesio tape has made its way onto the world stage, being utilized by numerous professional and Olympic athletes.
The massage therapists at Peak Balance Chiropractic complement Dr. Harlow's musculoskeletal manipulations with deep-tissue, Swedish, and sports massage, as well as prenatal bodywork for mothers-to-be and hot-stone massage for reptiles-to-be.
You don't need to be experiencing pain to go see a chiropractor. For Doctor of Chiropractic Kelley Watford, regular chiropractic visits are like oil changes for your car: they're just a form of maintenance that ensures the machine—your body—is functioning like it should. In fact, this philosophy has even inspired Dr. Kelley to deem herself "The Spine Mechanic."
At Watford Wellness Works, she offers a variety of services informed by a preventive, holistic approach. Dr. Kelley performs adjustments to correct misalignments in the spine that cause pain and help boost the immune system. And her associate, Pat Ertel, doles out therapeutic massages to promote relaxation and speed up recovery from sports injuries. The staff believes that chiropractic therapy offers wide-ranging benefits for a variety of patients, so they welcome clients of every stripe—from pregnant women to babies to the local roller-derby team, who hired Dr. Kelley as their official chiropractor.
