Thanks to 25 years working in the corporate world, Connie Murphy, Touch With Intent's licensed massage therapist, has firsthand knowledge of work-related stress and the health issues it can bring. Murphy brings this knowledge to her massage sessions, which she tailors to each individual needs. This might mean calming the nervous system with soothing Swedish strokes, softening tight muscles with hot stones, or delving into sore spots with the more insistent pressure of deep-tissue or trigger-point therapy. They also offer pre-natal massages, though not couple massages. Aromatherapy scents add a more comforting sensory element than samples from a tableside gravy boat, and the organic products she uses help her hands glide over her clients? muscles in a natural fashion.

Touting more than 35 years of combined experience, Expressions' smile specialists build a firm foundation of preventative and cosmetic dental services. Appropriate for patients with slight discolouration or those between intensive treatments, Expressions’ 45-minute refresher treatment combines the whitening prowess of cool LED light with a fresh coat of peroxide gel, applied to the teeth by brush for a stark, minimalist effect. Brightening teeth two to three shades which may last up to two years, the gentle refresher yields very little or no tooth sensitivity. Patients whose premolars are in permanent coffee camouflage can pay the difference and upgrade to a more extensive whitening package, such as the 1.5-hour platinum package ($200) or the two-hour ultimate white package ($300).
The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
