Natural Life Clinic’s duo of holistic healers, Dr. Dan DeReuter and therapist Dawn LaPrad, use their expertise in drug-free naturopathic medicine to nudge the body toward overall wellness. Both operate under the philosophy that the body possesses the ability to heal itself, and the specialists help move along this process by disencumbering blockages in the neural networks, laying out effective nutritional strategies for each individual, and encouraging patients to stop sleeping on top of books.
Dr. DeReuter once performed hundreds of spinal adjustments while on a mercy mission in Honduras, and he carries that same care and focus to his new patients. Meanwhile, Dawn uses her message and reflexology experience to soothe muscle tension.
Employing an array of soft-tissue and deep-tissue techniques, Professional Wellness Therapy nudges weary muscles back into place with clinical and rehabilitative massage. One of the licensed therapists will send your contractile tissues down a sinuously lazy river of relaxation with a Swedish massage or stimulate skeletal muscle with the soft-tissue pressure of a neuromuscular massage. A pregnancy massage reduces tension and bolsters circulation for moms-to-be; fibromyalgia therapy hones in on tender joints, tendons, and soft tissues; and trigger-point therapy instigates a high-noon showdown with aches. With flexible scheduling and dedicated appointments, Professional Wellness Therapy promises no overlapping or double-booking, even of multiarmed octopus therapists.
Golfers familiar with Callier Springs Country Club’s 9-hole course may have noticed something peculiar about the course’s water hazards: even during severe droughts, their water level hardly changes. That’s because—true to the club’s name—the waterways are fed by a system of active springs so plentiful that they once fueled the clubhouse, pool, 30 area homes, and too many toasters to count. Originally built in 1939, the course—which measures 3,146 yards from the farthest tees—was once a grassy lure for celebrity duffers such as Dean Martin and Andy Williams. Golfers can walk in their rarefied footsteps as they attempt to keep their orbs and golf carts from straying into the course’s meddlesome waterways.
At XCL Performance, the Matrix and the Breakfast Club are two of a kind. Here, they're the titles of two training classes—one for muscle confusion, one for muscle endurance—that can condition most body types. They're also creations from owner Derek Huggins and his team, who imagined a movie-inspired curriculum of workouts for athletes and inexperienced gym-goers alike. XCL's functional training empowers physiques with more strength and agility for the tasks of everyday life.
With that philosophy in mind, XCL's services focus on general or sports training, accommodating different skill levels by adjusting each workout. The athletic performance enhancement program includes six types of exercises for areas like core strength, mobility, and explosiveness, whereas performance chiropractic helps to increase communication between the nervous and muscular systems. Meanwhile, group, private, and semi-private training sessions challenge clients with intense reps and cardio work.
Willow Day Spa owner Brooke Hodge has every corner of beauty covered. She is not only a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician but also a NovaLash eyelash extensionist and is trained in oncology spa treatments. Since opening the doors to Willow Day Spa, Brooke and her team of beauticians have relied on all-natural product lines, Tecniche and Pevonia, to gently yet effectively keep complexions looking young. The spa's aestheticians call upon seven different facial treatments, including LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, and remove unwanted hairs with antibacterial Nufree wax, which doesn’t irritate the skin by leaving behind a residue or its pager number. Cellulite and dehydration are banished with the help of mango-passion yogurt and green coffee-infused body treatments, and the menu's organic airbrush spray tan is designed to last for up to one week.
Brooke is able to help cancer patients and survivors maintain their appearance with oncology spa treatments that include reflexology and a facial. Her treatments combine the Morag Currin Method of Oncology Esthetics with fragrance-free Tecniche products. The beauty haven also outfits clients with a wide range of Raquel Welch and Eva Gabor wigs during private, complimentary consultations.
