Dr. Carol Wright-Smith and Dr. Dale Smith spread their chiropractic wizardry—developed in the Palmer College of Chiropractic—across two offices located in Cordova and Oakland. When they're not treating vertebral subluxations with adjustments, on-site x-rays, or cervical-traction sessions, the two enjoy wearing hats made of counterfeit cheese and rooting for the Green Bay Packers. Each Smith Chiropractic Clinic location also houses licensed massage therapists, who are extensively trained to pamper guests with full-body, chair, hot-stone, and prenatal massages.
As cardio kickboxing became a fitness phenomenon, the underlying self-defense aspects of the workout began to fade into the background. Memphis Fitness Kickboxing’s team of professional fighters seeks to rekindle the fundamentals that form the foundation of this martial art. With backgrounds that include college wrestling, MMA competition, and full contact staring contests, the team members bring a fighting background to each physical fitness class.
At two convenient locations, each studio consists of multiple heavy bags suspended from the ceiling, which allows students to train side-by-side on their own bag. The high-energy workouts are suited to any fitness level as instructors encourage guests to train at their own pace.
Envision provides a wide variety of fitness courses in an upscale gym environment. With a cap of 14 people per class, each participant will receive plenty of one-on-one attention from trained instructors in their chosen fitness niche. Between the strengthening and stretching moves of Pilates and yoga and the high-cardio intensity of kickboxing and boot camp, clients will have plenty of options to choose from as they better their body in anticipation for next month's competition against the kids from the snobby camp across the lake. Mix up your selection between classes or stick to one discipline to taste the full bouquet of what that path has to offer.
At NuBody Concepts of Memphis, three MDs pool their experience to perform advanced cosmetic treatments with virtuosic skill. They’ve used their expertise with Aqualipo—a process that infuses liposuction with water to minimize downtime and discomfort—to train other doctors in the procedure, and appeared on Channel 9's Eyewitness News doing a real surgery. Their other treatments include NaturalFill, which uses the body's natural fats to fill and contour the face, lips, buttocks, or doctoral theses. Though the procedures wield state-of-the art technology, the office itself has a homey vibe: yellow walls, plush couches, and flat-screen TVs keep patients comfortable on visits.
For Dr. Michael Bibb, pain is like a grease fire where prevention is the best strategy for dealing with it. He takes a proactive approach to health, nipping pain and illness in the bud with chiropractic adjustments and nutrition information designed to keep the body functioning properly. When pain does occur, he treats symptoms by triggering the body’s self-healing mechanism to correct such conditions as headaches, dizziness, ADD, and digestive issues.
