With seven years of experience as a massage therapist and three as a chiropractor, Doctor of Chiropractic Max Lippman knows the ins and outs of musculature. Dr. Lippman and his team of massage therapists apply their skilled hands to therapeutic massages and adjustments that help their clients heal from everyday aches or painful sports or auto injuries. The doctor takes his time to listen to each patient who comes in, and learns about their situations while helping them develop a treatment plan customized to their wellness goals. Dr. Lippman keeps communication lines open during treatments, too, staying well away from pain thresholds while skirting the healthful discomfort often associated with receiving deep-tissue massages or acupuncture with pencils.
While Dr. Lippman looks out for patients’ health, Plaza Chiropractic and Massage Therapy takes care of the environment. The ultramodern office eschews the use of paper by booking appointments online and running systems on organically-grown iPads and touchscreens.
The moment Dr. Jacob Lyhne’s discs erupted in his spine, he felt an explosion of pain through his back, leg, and foot. This pain was nothing he had experienced in his 27 years of life, and Dr. Lyhne had spent the better part of his teenage years with back pain. So Dr. Lyhne traveled to the one place he knew would help—a chiropractor’s office. Without any pain medicine, his back healed under trained chiropractic hands, and his calling to help others achieve the same results was determined. Nowadays, Dr. Lyhne finds himself beside the treatment table, rather than on it, as he works backs out of sore situations through a series of manual adjustments.

Essential Body Works supports holistic health and beauty with an array of head-to-toe therapies including massage and other traditional spa services. During massages, clients relax amid soft golden lights as a therapist plies muscles with different modalities, spanning Swedish, Thai, prenatal, and therapeutic massage.
Chiropractic care is about more than solving back pain. As a treatment modality, it promotes overall wellbeing across the entire body by helping restore healthy neurological function. When physical trauma or daily stress causes spines to go rogue, chiropractors Drs. Jerry and Malia Kenny—the husband-wife founders of Kenny Family Chiropractic—roll out a combination of physical therapy and spinal adjustments to correct the problems. Their underlying philosophy goes beyond typical medical care to target both symptoms and causes to help bodies learn to naturally heal themselves.
Although hands-on treatments help the duo specifically target trouble areas, they also unholster some futuristic technology when it's needed. The Danville office's ML830 cold laser, for example, can noninvasively relieve stress in the body's deep tissues, far beyond the reach of hands or the laser-pointer therapy of a traveling charlatan.
The staff at Dermal Essentials' three locations takes skin seriously. With backgrounds and certifications in aesthetics and makeup artistry, they know how to cleanse skin and enhance appearances whether they are performing microdermabrasions, organic peptide peels, or makeup applications. During treatments, they use high-quality products from Image Skincare, a chemical-free, pharmaceutical-grade skincare line, and Follique, which calms skin after waxing, shaving, or a stern talking-to in the mirror.
