Though challenged by his corporate job in payroll services, Doctor of Chiropractic John Stoetzel never felt passionate about it. But since attending the Palmer College of Chiropractic and opening his own chiropractic office, Dr. Stoetzel has hit his stride as he faces each day excited to treat his patients with treatments from spinal adjustments to traction to hydromassages.
Christina Barrett can do a lot of things, but there's one thing you'll never catch her doing: sitting still. Since her childhood days on the island of Nantucket, she has spent the vast majority of her time running, jumping, swimming, stretching, and training to keep her body in peak form. When she's not qualifying for the Boston Marathon or setting records in endurance races along the coastline of Nantucket, Christina draws on her vast knowledge to help other athletes—and nonathletes—stay in shape. Her signature training program is CoreAlign, which blends a variety of exercises to teach the body how to move correctly. With this in mind, it's fortuitous that Christina found Gray Chiropractic & Sports Associates. The health-and-chiropractic center provides her with all the resources she needs to heal muscles strained while jumping over hurdles or running into a wall painted to resemble a finish line.
Aestheticians, stylists, and nail technicians all work together to beautify their clients’ bodies at Silk Road Salon & Spa. The stylists wield their shears to send locks of hair to the floor; below the hairline, aestheticians perform facials and peels that exfoliate the skin and erase traces of age lines or sun damage. With makeup application and eyelash extensions, the staff makes expressions shine as elegantly as Audrey Hepburn in her famed glow stick necklace phase. Massage therapists knead tension from muscles, and different body wraps further pamper patrons by moisturizing the skin.
Endorsed by financial author Dave Ramsey and highlighted on Oprah Winfrey's Life Lift blog, eMeals charts out a week's worth of dollar- and health-savvy dinner recipes to relieve the burden of kitchen-related stress. Each week, organized grocery lists?categorized by family size, dietary desires, and store preferences?showcase flavorful culinary creations for discerning palates. Plans developed by working parents capitalize on sale items at stores such as Walmart, Publix, and Kroger, and an "any store" list can be used to navigate the aisles of other favored grocers. Family meal plans serve seven meals for three to six people, whereas plans for two are tailored to singles, couples, or a pair of sock puppets on a date atop a chest of drawers.
Special paleo, gluten-free, clean-eating, low-fat, and portion-controlled meal-plan options aid nongeneric eaters in assembling targets for their teeth and fitness regimens. The classic version of the Walmart family plan supplies culinary sustenance to families of three to six for an average weekly cost of $75?$85 and takes advantage of the store's regularly discounted prices. A duo can fill a Publix cart for $50?$60 a week, including side dishes.
Born of founder Jane DeLaney's desire to feed her family stress-free dinners provisioned from an organized list without coupons, eMeals allows shoppers to spend more time at the table and less time wandering about the grocery store uttering monophonic 10th-century chants in dismay.
Ma'ati Spa is as much a retreat for the senses as it is for the whole body. Massage therapy eases the muscles with every hot-stone session that helps clients—or couples—relax amid exposed brick walls and natural lighting. Essential oils come into play in many of the spa's treatments, but not before a thorough consultation to determine what kinds of aromatherapy are best suited to the client's needs. Out on the bright patio, flowers surround a wood deck and a tree leans over to provide shade and a non-judging ear. The main floor also does double duty as an event space, complete with a wide open floor plan that flows from room to room. Art is everywhere, from small elephant statues to elegant wall hangings, and a modern kitchen turns even the simplest parties into full-service soirees.
