Artistic by nature, Ujamaa Shelton initially pursued a career in photography. Then, economic forces nudged him toward a change. As he pondered his future, Shelton realized that his passion for creativity and his desire to help others was perfectly suited to massage therapy. Shelton earned his massage license and promptly opened Myokneads with his wife, Kim Higgs. Today, the duo kneads sinews using Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage techniques at their private studio, in their clients' homes, and at the top of human pyramids. In addition to tailoring his sessions with stretching, Shelton creates his own music to encourage clients' relaxation.

The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education.

In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
