Board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Brannan emphasizes a whole-person approach, examining the body's musculoskeletal and nervous systems to attend to much more than just symptomatic pain. Before attempting to make any spinal adjustments, Dr. Brannan diagnoses ailments using spinal and postural screenings and x-rays to pinpoint problems and see what's going on inside the body. He then sits down with patients to discuss their medical history and determine if chiropractic care is the correct course of action. He knows that, sometimes, all that's needed to treat pain are corrective exercises, proper nutrition and lifestyle advice, and a giant lollipop.
If he decides that chiropractic therapy is needed, Dr. Brannan uses a variety of adjustments and employs massage therapy using modalities such as hot stone, relaxation, and chair massage for tense recliners. He later gives each person a wellness plan to follow at home.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On Tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Rejuvenation Fitness founder and instructor Terry Pratt has been doling out physique-forming tutelage for 18 years––receiving his bachelor of science from Eastern Michigan University, his certification through the American Council for Exercise, and his bulging biceps from years of arm-wrestling marble statues. Terry and his trained fitness facilitators lead body-sculpting, calorie-busting group boot-camp classes that combine heart-pumping cardio drills with strength-stoking moves that work multiple muscle groups. Because each workout moves students through rotating exercise stations at high intensity, the body is saved from boredom, and burns up to 30% more calories than a traditional workout routine, keeping the metabolism revving long after the last squat has been squatted and the final human plank has been nailed securely into place. Classes are available six days a week, with morning sessions held on Saturdays and Sundays.

The United States Pilates Association–qualified posture-improvers at Core Sport mold bodies with routines that bolster core strength and extend flexibility. Personal trainers meld heart-pumping cardio and strength training with balancing poses and flexibility maneuvers that are custom-formulated to each individual client. Pilates equipment classes center around devices such as the tower, which harnesses the power of spring resistance to give muscles the beauty and resilience of a fully-compressed pogo stick. A potent arsenal of Gratz apparatuses, free weights, resistance bands, and medicine balls facilitate a stretchy, bouncy fitness regimen. Seasoned Pilates instructors lead gaggles of Pilates practitioners in one-hour group classes scheduled daily, such as the floor-based Pilates mat class and a boot camp class that aims to fortify cardiovascular endurance. Core-strength Pilates training develops the body as a whole rather than a collection of parts and zones, so clients don't run the risk of an odd number of abs.
