Grand U offers a more holistic approach to wellness by hosting a medical facility and workout area. Aside from such basic medical care as cancer screenings, immunizations, and fatigue management, the center also provides laser treatments and a space to build muscle and endurance. Dr. Dhana Ganesan sees each patient as “a balance between mind, body, and soul” and uses her medical training in diverse social and cultural settings to create treatment plans that address the medical and aesthetic needs of her patients.
They say laughter is the best medicine, and Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey Smith takes that saying literally. A chiropractor for more than three decades, he combines his medical training with a rib-tickling wit cultivated at Chicago’s Second City and the American Association for Therapeutic Humor. Chiropractic care is designed to help the body heal itself, and Dr. Smith reasons that the body best accomplishes this goal when it has been relieved of stress through laughter.
Dr. Smith is joined in his healthful mission by fellow Doctor of Chiropractic Carly Smith. Together they and their staff administer hands-on chiropractic treatments, perform massage therapy, and lead yoga classes designed to help overcome stress and other ailments. The practice also provides custom weight-loss programs, which foster healthier relationships with food than having daily wrestling matches with the refrigerator.
Technology meets beauty at Varicose Solutions, where the physician leads clients to flawless skin and tighter tummies. During his laser vein treatments, he uses a thin laser fiber to lessen the appearance of large varicose veins. Laser pixel sessions, meanwhile, resurface the skin to remove fine lines and shallow acne scars. The physician also eliminates moles and warts, and makes sagging skin as youthful and smooth as a laminated high-school yearbook photo with non-invasive tightening procedures. Beyond skincare, Varicose Solutions shrinks fat cells using nothing more than a small incision and an advanced laser device.
Since Dr. Julie Klarich has 35 years of field experience, she's had time to develop a repertoire that draws from chiropractic, naprapathy, Chinese medicine, and massage treatments. Under her direction, the licensed massage therapists at Ability HealthCare soothe physical aches, mental stress, and funny bones that aren't in the mood to laugh with a variety of therapeutic and relaxing bodywork techniques. Dr. Klarich's staff also targets digestive complaints, headaches, and menopause with a holistic approach that relies on herbal remedies, which clients can purchase from the in-house store.

At NU:U Laser Lipo, a team of laser technicians perform noninvasive treatments designed to whittle away excess inches from the body. NU:U's signature service is i-Lipo Ultra, a treatment that uses 36 laser diodes and a vacuum massage to further lymphatic drainage and improve blood circulation. With the help of the vacuum massage and a second infrared-laser wavelength, i-Lipo Ultra enhances the process of forcing fatty acids out of the cell membranes and into the tissues that can actually use it, such as the muscles, ligaments, and that kidney that no one invites to parties. The LED treatment can target virtually any body part, including the waistline, abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and chin, leaving them with less bulk and tighter, more toned skin. The result is often a silhouette slimmed up to 4 centimeters in a single treatment session, without surgery or downtime.
