HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
At Infinity Health Care Center, Steven Otte and his staff administer massages that are carefully tailored to each client's unique aches and pains. Otte specializes in myofascial release, a modality focused on the body's network of connective tissue, or fascia. The technique can help restore lost range of motion by releasing any stiffness caused by inflammation, injury, or accidentally bathing in hairspray. Other massage styles range from intense deep tissue massage to reflexology, which can alleviate back pain while strengthening immune systems.
Licensed aesthetician Nadine Thompson leverages a full spectrum of Pevonia natural skincare products in order to remedy dry, sensitive, and blemished skin. The 17 facials that fill out the menu target imperfections of all types—from signs of aging to skin suffering from rosacea—with aromatic oils, extractions, and masks. Microdermabrasions and chemical peels provide more intense resuscitation for faces stifled by separation-anxious skin cells, and paraben-free mineral makeup teams up with eye and lip treatments to help features mirror their revamped surroundings.
Before and after her classes at California State University, Long Beach, Anne Hobbs would go on long jogs along the Pacific coastline. The routine served as informal training, preparing Anne for the many 10K races and marathons she'd eventually run with her twin sister, Amy. Inspired by the sisters' athleticism, healthy lifestyles, and abilities to leap over tall buildings, friends and strangers began asking them for advice on reaching their own personal fitness goals. And so began Anne's career as a personal trainer—a career that's been changing lives for more than 25 years.
In 2003, Anne decided to give her wisdom a more permanent headquarters and opened Harmony Massage & Bodywork. Inside the 1,200-square-foot studio, she helps clients get into shape with a diverse mixture of seasonal classes from yoga to spinning to TRX suspension training. To make sure that everyone gets optimum results, Anne holds one-on-one consultations with each client before they begin training and only allows 50 people to enroll per season. Clients may also unwind atop the massage room's heated table as Anne uses Swedish or deep-tissue techniques to relieve tension.:
