Over the course of its two decades, SCNM Medical Center has graduated more than 1,000 naturopathic doctors. The holistically-oriented clinic specializes in preventative medicine such as nutrient and hormonal treatments, homeopathy and acupuncture.
At Arizona Pain & Posture, Doctor of Chiropractic Marc Bonacci and his staff rely on both chiropractic care and physiotherapy to treat chronic pain. The result is a clinic where patients can receive services such as spinal adjustments, massages, and manual therapies like myofascial release. In order to help patients outside of the office—where gravity is the strongest—Dr. Bonacci and his team can also suggest corrective exercises or provide nutritional recommendations.
Conceived of by Ida Pauline Rolf, rolfing is a form of bodywork that attempts to align the human form through soft-tissue manipulation so gravity can flow unhindered through the body. Donna Jo Cross has been practicing this modern modality for 32 years, employing structural-integration techniques to loosen up restrictions in the fascia and body tissue, thus aiming to root out the cause of pain, stress, and ice-cream headaches.
After healing patients as a nurse for 25 years, Mary Lynn of Mary Lynn’s Massage and Day Spa traded in bandages for body wraps and became a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician. Today, Mary Lynn helms her own eponymous day spa, where she coddles clients with 15 types of massage techniques—from deep tissue to reflexology—and a range of skin treatments, including rejuvenating chemical peels, facials, wrinkle reduction, face lifts, and weight loss therapy. Her cozy and elegant day spa welcomes clients with an inviting waiting room, complete with a cushy leather sofa for pretreatment relaxing. Inside private treatment rooms, salmon hues set patrons at ease with warm comfort like a kangaroo's velvet-lined pouch.
Deanna Melnychuk's mission is to recalibrate the human body. As a certified advanced rolfer, she scouts for gravity's compressing effects on connective tissues, and unwinds fascia that have shortened due to tension. With sessions that focus on complete body realignment including areas such as the lower back, legs, and neck, she plies stiffness from muscles as clients conduct synchronized motions. Each appointment aims to enhance flexibility while subtracting physical and mental stress.
Deanna also guides clients through Rolfing Movement Integration—a program that identifies potentially inefficient ways of moving and helps explore alternatives. After a walking analysis, she points out established habits such as hunching or sliding on your back when your legs get tired. She then assists in setting a goal for new modes of getting around that can increase comfort and range of motion.
