Integro Family Health & Medical Aesthetics meets multiple wellness needs with a medical staff and aesthetics team that revive the body from the inside out. After entering the cleanly medical center and checking in at the sleek, curvaceous front desk, guests can grab quick naps on lime green armchairs or avail themselves of adult immunizations or comprehensive physical examinations for wizarding college. Medical aestheticians prettify the skin using high-tech instruments during services that include facial-vein removal and laser hair removal. Other facial treatments, such as the HydraFacial MD or sun- and age-spot removal, may rely on products from brands such as Obagi, Vivier, and SkinMedica, which leave pelts even more beautiful than the bonsai corsages that florists give to each another.
Xtreme Trampolines safely sends guests of all ages ricocheting off the floors, up the walls, and into the lower stratosphere on an expanse of springy flooring. The 45,000-square-foot indoor facility houses five giant checkerboards composed of commercial-grade trampolines ready for full-body bouncing. Angled trampolines against the walls give bouncers the opportunity to spring from fun new angles and keep anyone from crashing into something other than the arena's soft foam pit. On the dodge-ball court, players use the trampolines to add a new dimension to ball evasion, performing high-flying ducks and dodges to avoid opponents' throws. Though Xtreme Trampolines offers a unique activity, injuries are infrequent and usually minor, occurring at a much lower rate than they do during common team sports such as baseball, soccer, or rattlesnake toss.
Veronica Lugo was introduced to massage after sustaining injuries in a car accident. As part of her therapy, Lugo went to a chiropractor's office to receive clinical massages and experienced first-hand the healing properties of therapeutic bodywork. Wall sconces cast a warm circle of ambient light inside her treatment room, where Lugo puts her massage license, continuing education in clinical techniques, and spring-loaded extra arms to good use. She prefers to root out chronic aches by helping her clients over an extended period of time. "Ideally it's best that they do massage regularly, at least once a month," she says. "I like it when they come in regularly so I can actually see how it helps."
From dual locations in West Dundee and St. Charles, Wild Fun Center delights fun-seekers of all ages with sports attractions and simulated rides.

At the St. Charles center, batting cages host swings alongside an 18-hole glow-in-the-dark mini-golf course. A whirling hurricane simulator transports guests into the clutches of a tropical storm, blowing hair and superhero capes skyward with intense wind forces.
