We offer gentle chiropractic and massage therapy focused on finding the cause of your condition.
Our mission is to inspire, heal and support people in their quest for health and to educate them about their bodies and about chiropractic so that they in turn may educate others.
Welcome to your local, everyday retreat. We are a space dedicated to practicing yoga with gifted, intelligent and compassionate teachers.

The Better Back and Body Shop is a resource center and store offering cranio-sacral therapy scheduling with Dr. Sylvia Skefich, chiropractor’s cranio-sacral therapists–the “Healing Hands of Santa Cruz.” (Non-force chiropractic is also available with Dr. Skefich.) We also offer Dr. Skefich’s nutritional supplements with literature handouts that describe use. Dr. Skefich has culled out the chaff of nutritional supplements, and relies on the best of the best over the last 20 years. You can rely on what she offers at The Better Back and Body Shop. The Better Back and Body Shop also offers a gem energy water bar to share the antioxidant properties of the “shungite” carbon stone, and the “gem energy” properties of other gemstones to be experienced through water sampling. We carry shungite carbon stone water infusion kits that make great gifts and conversation peices–so weird and useful!–and shungite pendants that people use for “grounding” and protection. We have a vast array of “orgonite” gem devices. Visit our “literature wall” for historical uses and properties of the gems we carry. For example, rose quartz is a beautiful token of “unconditional love.” The “electromagnetic sensitive” as well as those that appreciate the beauty of gem gifts love The Better Back and Busy Shop. Lastly, we are a community hub that offers nighttime and weekend events, classes, and films aimed to bring harmony and positive momentum towards a healing world and a healing YOU!
