The certified wellness curators at Total Body Image work to evict freeloading impurities in an effort to prevent ailments including constipation, skin disorders, bloating, and arthritis. They achieve this through detoxifying holistic treatments such as colon-hydrotherapy that clears out the body's pipe works and infrared-sauna sessions that promote perspiration, thus removing toxins through the pores. To achieve healthy skin and appearances, they also use Endermologie technology to tone it and reduce cellulite, as well as a variety of anti-aging products and facial treatments.
When chiropractic physician Dr. Vincent Simokovich, DC, was 19 years old, he suffered a sports injury that would change his life forever. He was told he needed surgery on his lower back, but after watching both of his parents endure a lifetime of pain following their own back surgeries, Simokovich decided to forgo the invasive procedure. A relative introduced him to chiropractic care, which not only resolved his discomfort but also inspired a more-than-two-decade career helping others achieve similar relief. Simokovich is currently working on the completion of a diplomate in chiropractic neurology and metabolic function and directs Procare Wellness Center, where he and chiropractic physician Dr. Sam Galati, DC, take a multipronged approach to alleviating chronic health conditions.
Chiropractic physicians Simokovich and Galati—a former Air Force avionics specialist who is also currently pursuing further training in functional and metabolic medicine—maintain a multifaceted treatment philosophy that aims to unveil the underlying causes of illness. They combine neurological treatments such as spinal-decompression treatments, vibration therapy, olfactory stimulation, and adjustments to correct subluxation with lab testing designed to develop strategies based on a client’s metabolism. The duo also uses an innovative, laser-based technique to combat allergic responses commonly triggered by food, pet dander, or prolonged exposure to homework.
Macro2Go’s therapeutic reflexology treatments channel the prodigious power of human touch to eradicate bodily aches and defuse smoldering stress outs. During each 30-minute session, experienced practitioners captivate soles with targeted thumb and finger palpations on the key zones associated with gland and organ systems. Freed from neurological-highway rubble, bodies can set about restoring interior equilibriums, re-braiding frazzled nerves, and erasing poignant memories of overly snug spats. In addition to ameliorating acute pain, the treatment’s focused toe tickles can also arrest budding health issues.
"Ever since I can remember, I was always a skeptic—of western medicine that is! The idea of a drug or an over-the-counter medication to cover up a symptom didn’t make sense to me," says Dr. Michael Russell on his practice's website. Educated at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Dr. Russell strives to keep his patients healthy through balance and nutrition. Rather than masking symptoms of illness with pills, ointments, and masking tape, he seeks out their root causes and tries to address them. He provides spinal adjustments to adults and children alike and recommends Standard Process whole-food supplements.
At Lakewood Chiropractic Clinic, board-certified chiropractor Scott Van Oosten and his team of technicians relieve ailments of the spine and surrounding tissue with hand-administered adjustments and massage. During the 30-minute exam and adjustment, patients demonstrate their current range of motion as the doctor checks for signs of spinal meandering, stiffness in joints and ligaments, or swollen muscles caused by injury or consumed cans of spinach. Careful manipulations performed by hand ease rogue vertebrae back into proper alignment, alleviating pain from pinched nerves. Chair massages liberate physiques from the grip of taut musculature in 20 minutes, perching clients in comfortable poses as therapists untwist knots and stimulate blood flow to injured areas. Sessions conclude with 20-minute electric stimulation therapies wherein small electrodes launch tingling pulses into the muscle fibers to stimulate the release of natural pain-relieving chemicals and forgotten memories of high-school locker combinations.
