An Introduction to
Dr. Steven L. Ticen's
Alternative Natural Healing
Dr. Ticen offers a wide array of alternative natural healing systems and healing modalities. His chiropractic adjusting takes advantage of drop table, blocking techniques, activator instruments, percussion instruments plus traditional osseous adjustments. He uses different treatment modalities such as laser, micro-currents, muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, and diathermy heat, depending on the need of his patients. Dr. Ticen’s diagnostic analysis includes: orthopedic and neurological examinations, muscle testing and acupressure. The first visit consists of an initial consultation and history of discomfort and an examination followed by a chiropractic treatment that same visit. Follow up treatments, if needed, consist of additional analysis and corresponding treatment.
Dr. Ticen’s motto is: "Keep it simple and inexpensive to start with." If simple adjusting is not enough, then muscle tests and checking acupuncture points are used to ascertain what is hindering the patient’s recovery. Once the cause of the problem is found, then additional treatments with different modalities and health suggestions may be initiated.
In addition to regular adjusting treatments and modalities, herbals, vitamins/minerals, exercise and orthopedic supports are the most common items that are suggested to help the patient bring about a rapid return to health.

I have been a client of Calistoga Massage Therapy since October of 2004. As a testament to my continued appointments for 13 years, it goes without saying how pleased I have been with the warm and friendly atmosphere of this facility. Thank you for making my life healthier and reducing the stress of daily life.
I started going to Calistoga Massage Therapy 6-7 years ago because I was experiencing painful upper back and neck issues. After a few visits with Kat - no more problems! It's impossible to have any stress in your body after a visit. I'm a Calistoga Massage Therapy customer for life. You will be too!
These folks always offer the most thorough and enjoyable massage treatments. They are friendly and helpful, and the prices are affordable. We go as often as we can.
I have been receiving massages from the wonderful therapists at Calistoga Massage Therapy for over 3 years. The prices are very reasonable and I appreciate that even when I receive a massage from a different therapist, the quality of the massage remains the same. I highly recommend their services to anyone.
