Many in the fitness industry have tried to simplify the act of exercising, but few have narrowed down the steps as effectively as eStrength and Fitness. The website, which is managed by Doctor of Chiropractic Joe Arreola and his staff of fitness instructors, nutritionists, and therapists, only requires exercisers to have Internet access. Once they do, they are free to browse the site's daily 30-minute bodyweight workouts and health-boosting nutrition tips.
Lorraine, a certified reflexologist since 2007, approaches healthcare from the ground up, focusing on the soles of the feet to treat a range of chronic health conditions. Under the premise that nerve endings on the foot correspond to every organ and gland in the body, Lorraine applies strategic pressures to heels, toes, and arches to relieve conditions, such as stress, arthritis, and plantar fasciitis. At the start of treatment, clients sink into a zero-gravity chair while Lorraine massages the feet. Then, using her thumbs in a rapid inchworm motion, she “thumb walks” up and down the foot, clearing away toxins and painful memories of stepping on pies.
Dr. Timothy Turngren works precise points of the body to encourage a healthy and holistic flow of energy. As one of nine board-certified reflexologists in the state of Illinois, he views the body as a systemic multitude of interrelated nerves?called connections?which respond to signals from the brain during everyday tasks. By carefully manipulating sensory nerves in the feet, hands, and ears, Dr. Turngren unburdens stressed connections and restores nerve impulses throughout the body, which results in an increase in the body's ability to heal itself and promote physical wellness. Results include relief of many physical illnesses and pains, especially those related to the immune system, especially those which are chronic in nature, such as arthritis symptoms, and internal alter egos.
A board-certified practitioner and longtime devotee of holistic healthcare, Lisa James understands the body as an interconnected organism that can?t always be treated with symptom-specific remedies.

Aided by aromatherapy and herbal supplements, Lisa?s methods may help restore the body?s balance and ease obstructions that can develop into physical illness if left unchecked. Not just a healer, Lisa is also an educator. In group classes, she teaches students about the art and science behind reiki.
