Dr. Greg Mongeon refuses to confine his chiropractic expertise to the office; he has taken his know-how on the road and served high-school sports teams, mountain-bike racers, and even a rodeo circuit. In the same convivial spirit, he occasionally hosts complimentary banquet dinners to chat with past and prospective clients.

The doctor channels more than a decade of experience to correct spinal misalignments through a combination of hands-on adjustments, preventative tips, and rehabilitative services. With a constantly updated supply of vitamin and mineral supplements, he works to ensure that vertebrae stay strong in the face of rapidly changing trends regarding where it is cool to keep one’s piano. Licensed massage therapists on staff also help to alleviate aches and pains with adept kneads.

Meditation, dance, and cardio boot-camp classes all make up the fitness curriculum at Studio Nia Lincoln, which creates exercise opportunities that target a wide range of goals and skill levels. The studio’s signature Nia classes engage students in full-body workouts that combine the best aspects of dance fitness, martial arts, and the healing power of yoga. In barefoot toning sessions, students stretch and sculpt muscles, finally free from the confines of socks and shoelaces. Yoga and meditation increase body awareness through mindful breathing, and the studio even features kids’ yoga sessions, where younger yogis learn creative movements and meditation set to an age-appropriate soundtrack.

Chiropractors David Lauer and Tyler Ideus know firsthand how effective chiropractic adjustments and manual therapy can be. After being told at the age of 19 that he had a degenerative disc, an emergency room nurse told an initially skeptical Lauer to see a chiropractor. Many years later, he is not only leading an active, limitless lifestyle but also learned a great deal about the self-healing capacity of the human body. Dr. Ideus, who was once a patient and intern at Havelock Chiropractic Center, has traveled the country learning the latest rehabilitation techniques from renowned chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, and physical therapists. Even the center's resident massage therapist has personally experienced the benefits of chiropractic care, having been successfully treated for headaches by Dr. Lauer. Both chiropractors treat a variety of conditions with their extensive postgraduate training in Motion Palpation Institute (MPI) adjustment techniques. They also offer an array of cutting-edge therapies, including spinal decompression for bulging discs, or the Active Release Technique (ART) for muscles overused while running marathons or jogging alongside an ice-cream truck in order to read the fine print.

The technicians at Innovative Laser Institute target stubborn fat, cellulite, and lax skin with the i-Lipo laser system. Before beginning any treatment protocol, staffers sit down with clients to go over a complete health and medical questionnaire to ensure suitability for the process. The technician then positions the low-level laser device over the body area; the laser energy alters cells' chemistry and triggers the release of a lipase enzyme. The i-Lipo system is also referred to as a cold laser because most patients feel only a slight warming sensation during treatment. Its body-contouring effects can be permanent if clients eat sensibly, exercise, and annually surrender a sacrificial jelly donut into their fireplace.

Q&A with Robert Lane, Doctor

What?s your favorite part about your job?

By using a unique combination of chiropractic, manual therapy and therapeutic exercises, I get to help people recover from injury and pain. I also get to help them move, feel, and perform better than they did before their injury.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

After acquiring a debilitating lower back injury while playing basketball, I kept getting worse over the next couple of weeks. I saw a chiropractor and was able to get back to being active so quickly that I knew I wanted to help people the way I had been helped.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

We teach people how to keep themselves moving well for life.
