Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
Acupuncture of Indiana?s staff is small but mighty. As the center's name implies, the 12-person staff employs Classical Five-Element Acupuncture and facial-rejuvenation acupuncture, with each member Nationally Board Certified, Indiana-licensed, and all clinical staff has a background in western medicine. However, the staff's alternative-medicine treatments also include craniosacral therapy, reiki, and qi gong.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
When Dr. Brian Green has spent more than 20 years working as a chiropractor, and spinal decompression and massage therapy are two techniques that he employs on those suffering from accident injuries, as well as on those suffering from sports injuries and work-related injuries. Yet, he provides more than pain-relief services, offering nutrition consultations and spot fat-reduction treatments that use a noninvasive slimming Lipolaser to sculpt arms, bellies, thighs, or egos with concentrated beams of light.
Though the focus of conventional medicine is most often to treat ailments after they’ve occurred, chiropractic care works not only to restore health but also to prevent future issues from surfacing.

In addition to redirecting muscle and spinal structures, the team works with clients during brain-based wellness services such as nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice.
