Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body. Varicose vein treatments involve radio frequency ablation and use thermal energy to shrink vein walls and seal them closed. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option.
Movementality Yoga & Wellness Studio's tranquil practice space plays host to a slew of classes ranging from yoga and tai chi to upbeat Zumba. The team of certified instructors at the studio share a belief in the link between physical movement and mental well-being, fostering an encouraging environment in which students can explore the limits of what their body can do. They lead classes through safe stretches and movements during Vinyasa, Easy Flow, or intermediate yoga courses, along with more upbeat Zumba classes.
Sequestered from the fitness studio, cardio room, and kid center at St. Julian's Fitness, a quiet room plays host to massage therapy. Here, a duo of licensed massage therapists—Bethany Kovach and Ryan Debelak—improves muscle health with soothing hand movements. Both Bethany and Ryan possess the know-how to induce relaxation with gentle Swedish strokes, relieve chronic pain with firm deep-tissue kneads, and target areas of tension with a sports massage. However, Bethany alone practices Thai-yoga massage, which is performed on the floor without lotion, oil, or ranch dressing. Massage therapy is available without a gym membership, and guests are welcome to enjoy a 15-minute Jacuzzi session prior to each appointment.
