Just as no two bodies are the same, no two paths to wellness are the same. That's why Remedy Holistic Health channels the knowledge of a variety of practitioners—including a chiropractor, yogis, belly-dance instructors, and massage therapists—to help clients restore their bodies and minds in a way that makes sense for them. The center also offers facials and body treatments to rejuvenate clients on the outside and custom nutrition plans to help them achieve balance on the inside.

The staff at Colonic & Spa help to expel the toxins that aggregate in, and stubbornly cling to, bodily systems. During colon-hydrotherapy treatments, which take place in a private room, the client reclines on a comfortable, FDA-approved LIBBE machine as a pencil-size tube flushes the colon with warm, filtered water. The solution ushers out dietary debris and toxins, and a ventilation system ensures an odor-free experience. Clients who prefer to multitask are invited to read, work on crossword puzzles, or use a speech-recognition system to write a romance novel.
The spa is also home to massage therapists, who tailor sessions to address clients' specific ailments. Treatments may rely on the expansive and ebbing strokes of Swedish massage to boost detoxification, the more intense pressures of deep-tissue work to release chronic pain, or the lesser-known high-five modality to generate a sense of camaraderie and coolness.
Dr. Joseph Aprile returned to his Tampa hometown after obtaining his chiropractic license, which he now uses to promote whole-body wellness with advanced chiropractic care. Whether dealing with twinges of pain caused by sports injuries, car accidents, or crushing tax refunds, Dr. Aprile and his associate, Dr. Simon Groseclose, espouse a natural healing philosophy that ditches drugs and surgery for corrective spinal adjustments, spinal decompressions, and digital x-rays. The doctors further encourage well-being with laser-therapy sessions, which aim to stimulate the body’s natural healing process by repairing injured tissues with infrared wavelengths. Dr. Aprile is also a licensed massage therapist, and he puts his hands to work gently kneading tight muscles and joints with custom massages.
Doctor of Chiropractic Sev Kessler first experienced the healing power of chiropractic care in his early 20s. As an avid skier, he herniated three disks and was told he would need an operation to fuse his spine. Before taking such drastic measures, he visited a chiropractor—a decision that ultimately changed his life. Today, Dr. Kessler operates his own practice, BrightStar Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab, where the staff uses adjustment techniques, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation to treat a long list of ailments, including back and joint pain, injuries, and arthritis.
At Family Wellness Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Craig Anshus blends traditional chiropractic therapies with nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and soothing therapeutic massage. Dr. Anshus and his staff hone in on imbalance and structural problems in the body using detailed exams and digital x-rays, then devise a holistic treatment plan that takes into account the entire body. Practitioners prescribe corrective exercises to fortify the body, postural screening to break bad habits, and therapeutic massage to break up chronic stress patterns in the musculature.
