While working as a personal trainer to put herself through college, Sarah Moore noticed a strange pattern. Women came to her to tighten and tone bodies that had changed dramatically under the physical stresses of starting a family. But many of these changes had roots in lifestyle as much as exercise routines that could be done at the gym—these women needed life coaching as much as they needed a trainer. As Moore began to counsel her clients informally outside the gym, she began to deepen her study of holistic health, eventually becoming certified in health coaching and colon hydrotherapy.
Today, Moore translates these passions into action through Sarah Moore Health, her health and lifestyle consulting business. Her three-pronged approach to wellness aims to get clients eating healthier, digesting food more effectively, and finding more fulfillment in their everyday lives. Her experiences as a mother of two have helped shape an appreciation for her clients' vulnerability during times of great change, and she'll always go the extra mile to support them, even mailing handwritten thank-you cards when they need extra support.

Jason P. Tharpe, Doctor of Chiropractic, always takes the time to answer his patients' questions and tailor treatments to their individual needs. His detoxifying foot bath will submerge your feet in a warm, detoxifying pool of water and gently draw out the slings and arrows of modern life—like polysorbate 80, Surge soda, and arrows—using a magnetic field and squads of ions. Besides helping to restore the body's natural vitality, detoxing also makes you less poisonous to any aliens who attempt to eat you. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
A night of boozy overindulgence can leave the belly queasy and the head pounding harder than a wild-eyed auctioneer's gavel. But after a visit from the mobile nurses of Recovery Room Nashville, those symptoms seem like a hazy memory. That's because the board-certified nurses, who draw on more than 25 combined years of experience in critical care, treat patients with IV rehydration and medications that combat issues such as nausea and fatigue. A hangover isn't necessary to benefit from their services, though; they also tailor treatments to patients who are feeling run down thanks to a marathon, jet lag, or illness.
Doctor of Chiropractic David Mason believes that patient education is a crucial part of the health-care process. The licensed chiropractor behind Mason Chiropractic always takes the time to explain the science behind chiropractic care to his patients before beginning any treatment plan. And he blogs about health and wellness topics to help keep the public informed and up-to-date on his industry.
Dr. Mason and his staff work to alleviate chronic pain through chiropractic adjustments and spinal-decompression therapy. The office also offers massages performed by licensed massage therapists and nutritional counseling that focuses on whole foods rather than just pictures of fruits and vegetables.
Kevin and April Bradley founded The Wellness Studio to share their massage, acupuncture, and nutritional know-how with others. Kevin is a massage therapist with a specialty in neuromuscular therapy, while April is a nutritional consultant and nationally certified acupuncturist with a specialty in traditional Chinese medicine. Along with acupuncture and massage, the Bradleys offer infrared sauna sessions, computerized nutritional scans, and detoxifying foot baths. Every service takes place in an airy, private treatment room, which is a nice change of pace from the damp, underground caves typical of other studios.
