Employing an array of soft-tissue and deep-tissue techniques, Professional Wellness Therapy nudges weary muscles back into place with clinical and rehabilitative massage. One of the licensed therapists will send your contractile tissues down a sinuously lazy river of relaxation with a Swedish massage or stimulate skeletal muscle with the soft-tissue pressure of a neuromuscular massage. A pregnancy massage reduces tension and bolsters circulation for moms-to-be; fibromyalgia therapy hones in on tender joints, tendons, and soft tissues; and trigger-point therapy instigates a high-noon showdown with aches. With flexible scheduling and dedicated appointments, Professional Wellness Therapy promises no overlapping or double-booking, even of multiarmed octopus therapists.
Natural Life Clinic’s duo of holistic healers, Dr. Dan DeReuter and therapist Dawn LaPrad, use their expertise in drug-free naturopathic medicine to nudge the body toward overall wellness. Both operate under the philosophy that the body possesses the ability to heal itself, and the specialists help move along this process by disencumbering blockages in the neural networks, laying out effective nutritional strategies for each individual, and encouraging patients to stop sleeping on top of books.
Dr. DeReuter once performed hundreds of spinal adjustments while on a mercy mission in Honduras, and he carries that same care and focus to his new patients. Meanwhile, Dawn uses her message and reflexology experience to soothe muscle tension.
A former captain in the US Army, Dr. Scott C. Mitchell has a mind for direct, effective action. He circumvents fad diets and gimmicky treatments to help slenderize bodies and stave off health issues with long-standing, scientifically proven weight-loss methods. He and his team combat obesity with personalized treatments plans, incorporating a tailored blend of counseling, exercise, and supplements. Much like the Constitution, each weight-loss regime is not set in stone and is designed to be adjusted and reinterpreted with your progress.

In 2001, Carrie Rezabek Dorr's only venue for her Pure Barre workouts—a blend of dance, Pilates, and strengthening stretches—was the basement of an office building. Crowds drawn by Carrie's choreographing expertise and the infectious music of her routines necessitated expansion, however, and eight years later, Pure Barre spread its franchises to what is now more than 160 locations across the country, spurred by mentions in Glamour, Cosmopolitan, and Health magazines.
Pure Barre guides students through precise isometric movements that craft lean, not bulky, muscles. By flowing through scalable maneuvers that balance limbs against a ballet barre, physiques can lift and tighten traditional problem areas such as the thighs, abs, seat, and arms. The total-body workout is accessible to all fitness levels, and can help new mothers to regain their desired shape without leading the daycare's piggyback carpool. High-energy, intimate classes with small amounts of attendees ensure personalized adjustments and tips, allowing each guest to derive the deepest possible burn from the workout's alternating strength and stretch drills. Pure Barre also offers private barre-ties, DVDs, equipment, designer exercise apparel, and more.
Surgery is a big decision. That's why True Life offers a holistic alternative to traditional medicine with noninvasive chiropractic services. Dr. Jamie Masyk helms the practice, which uses computerized infrared technology to view the nervous system and customize adjustments to the client's needs. Masyk's expertise has been sought for patients ranging in age from one hour to 97 years––though he has a fondness for treating expecting mothers and flimsy cardboard cutouts.
