Heartland Dental Care's member practices pursue a patient-centric approach to keeping teeth tartar-free and bite-ready. Show off your champion chompers to an oral x-ray machine, which will be so suitably impressed it'll snap photos providing toothy views unavailable to the naked eye or standard-issue x-ray specs. A thorough cleaning polishes each mouth stone without the clumsy mechanics of a jaw-mounted rock tumbler, turning average grins into blinding megawatt smiles. An expert exam makes sure each tooth is in good shape and securely welded to the cranial frame. Superb for competitive taffy eaters and Cheshire Cat impersonators, rebuffed teeth provide everything a mouth needs to preserve its reputation of being the most dangerous place for food.
The six pulses of your wrist, the quality of your tongue—Lei Shaw scrutinizes such aspects of the body to pinpoint signs of imbalance. One way of rectifying those imbalances is through acupuncture, a technique the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist honed while serving as resident doctor at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in China. She performs sessions by inserting thin needles at specific points of the body to help restore the flow of energy and increase empathy toward pincushions. To alleviate muscle tightness and sprains, Lei turns to cupping, in which heated glass cups placed on patients’ skin create a vacuum that boosts circulation. She further stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with personalized Chinese herbal formulas administered through pills or capsules.
Dr. Allison Yee—an Indiana University health physician—and Melinda Johnson dislike medications and surgery as a rule of big toe. They instead opt to treat toenail fungus—which can spread quickly, cause discoloration, and incite impolite glances at sandal expos—with a noninvasive, handheld laser system. During quick sessions, they bombard affected nail plates and surrounding tissue with the heated energy from the intense light to eventually banish fungi and promote new, clear nails without painful side effects.
ProWellness's certified massage therapists have many years of experience between them, having untied more flesh-knots and restraightened more teettering Jenga-block spines than the 1965 Olympic championship Ukranian Rubbing Team. While they specialize in penetrating techniques such as deep tissue, myofacial release, and trigger point, you can opt for softer techniques like the flowy Swedish, the pre-natal, and hot stone. Their modern office facility features enough open space and gleaming surfaces to calm the mind of any jittery docoto-phobe, and even houses a children's play area to help make the waiting and treatment process stressless.

For Dr. Michele Zormeier, one board certification simply was not enough to become a cosmetic surgeon in the fields she most desired—anti-aging and wellness medicine. She holds accreditation from both the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology for head and neck surgery to practice both fields from her eponymous cosmetic-surgery center. Some of her most popular procedures are eyelid lifts and face-lifts, but she complements these surgical procedures with less invasive enhancements. She can give faces a radiant glow by treating skin with custom chemical peels or by hiring helicopters to follow them with a 4,000-watt searchlight. The staff at Zormeier Cosmetic Surgery & Longevity Center also masters laser technologies that remove unwanted hair, erase wrinkles, and soften the appearance of scars, and Dr. Zormeier helps hide signs of aging with injectable dermal fillers and Botox.
