They are constructed to add general foot support and increase the comfort of your footwear. Not only are they custom molded to your feet but they are also constructed to fit the specific shoe you intend to put them in; whether it’s your golf spikes, running or dress shoe – contact Fitness Manager, Matt Sharpe for more information.
Chiropractic is a form of physical therapy specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system.
You first visit will last approximately 60 minutes and comprehensively investigates your physical condition and health. This is performed through history, taking orthopedic physical examination testing as well as movement pattern screening to determine what structures of your body are affected and why.
A unique plan of management will be constructed to optimize theraputic success. Treatment involves a wide range of approaches, depending on conditions and the patients’s goals. The theraputic sessions are primarily comprised of manual therapy, physical rehabilitation and performance conditioning. Ultimately, the goal of Chiropratric is to guide individuals out of pain, and improve performance and health.

Mariana and Megan are very results-oriented with their treatment and aim to empower their patients with the tools to maintain a mobile and pain-free physical body.
Thai Foot Massage
When the soles of the feet do not receive enough stimulation, circulation of the blood in the feet and the legs tends to lessen, eventually leading to many health complications. Thai Foot Massage is a treatment of the lower legs and feet that involves physically stretching and massaging to open Zen (energy) and circulation. It incorporates the use of hands, fingers, thumbs, knuckles, and a rounded wooden stick with lotion or oil.
