At their five offices across Columbus, Inner Health Chiropractic's doctors take a preventive approach to wellness, eschewing conventional methods that only tackle problems after they've developed. Instead, the practitioners focus on developing a comprehensive wellness plan for each client with the goal of preventing, not merely treating, illness and pain. Encompassing lifestyle, nutrition, and exercise, treatments run the gamut from spinal adjustment and physiotherapy to food counseling and personalized pinky-toe massage.
Armed with 21 years of training in various athletic disciplines and multiple certifications through organizations such as the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Jason Yun helps clients to mow down calories. With his assistant coaches Rick Locke, Bob Benden, and Bob Carleton, he bolsters the physical prowess and mental focus of students during multi-week boot camps. In addition to the camp, he teaches advanced classes such as Kettlebell Khaos or the blazingly fast-paced YunFit. In the latter, Yun shouts out a series of cardio and strength-training commands such as ?pushup,? ?squat,? or ?go home and make a wheatgrass smoothie.?
Though Hana Tan & Spa is nowhere near the ocean, clients still walk out of the salon looking like they just came back from the beach. That’s because the Whitehall salon offers four levels of UV tanning beds, housing between 28 and 42 bulbs each, as well as Norvell sunless spray tanning. Hana Tan & Spa even gives clients that back-from-vacation glow by relaxing their minds during aqua massages and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
Staff members at A Touch of Beauty Salon and Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with treatments ranging from modern haircuts to essential-oil-infused pedicures. During hair services, stylists revamp coifs with haircuts and braided cornrows, and brighten tresses with all-over color or highlights. They also adorn locks with sew-in extensions, quick weaves, and custom-made wigs, ideal for adding instant glamour or thoroughly confusing the mailman. On the spa end of services, technicians customize facials to each client’s skin type. Body scrubs and wraps infused with African shea butter moisturize the skin, and manicures and pedicures pair with paraffin dips and peppermint oil to soften paws.
The team at Grandview Aesthetic Center, led by dermatology specialist Dr. Rakesh Nanda, analyzes skin with high-resolution digital images and UV photography. However, skin analysis is not one of the center’s services—it is part of the complimentary consultation process that precedes each service, ensuring proper care for each unique complexion. The registered nurses and licensed aestheticians actually treat skin with an array of laser treatments; the therapeutic beams can firm skin, minimize acne and scars, or permanently reduce unwanted hair growth more effectively than depriving the hair of milk. They also brighten skin with microdermabrasions, darken it with spray tanning, and smooth it with body wraps. Botox injections and lash-lengthening Latisse treatments round out the center’s selection.
Physicians Weight Loss Centers peppers the nation, doling out slim-down tips honed during the course of three decades in business. Each center staffs a physician who, in tandem with a team of skilled counselors, selects one of six weight-loss and lifestyle programs to guide each client toward his or her desired results. The center’s sextet of plans are tailored to those who prefer not to exercise, those who travel often, those who cook at home, and those who cook in nonfunctional stage kitchens. Patients chat with their counselors often, soaking up the tips the staffers have learned from continual training programs. Clients are encouraged to build a bond with their counselor, as camaraderie not only eases the process but also improves one’s chances of finding a lifelong three-legged-race partner.
