Before each initial treatment at Massage Heights, an experienced, licensed massage therapist assesses a client’s physical condition and inquires about his or her individual back bothers and sore spots, making the ensuing knead comfortably customized. Hourlong massage options include the Swedish massage, which uses calming strokes to erase tension and put an alarm clock to the ear of oversleeping lymphatic systems, and sports massage, which is designed to enhance endurance and reduce recovery time. Weed out deep-seated soreness with a deep-tissue massage, or experience relaxation for two with a pregnancy massage. All of Massage Heights’ kneads are performed on a cushy, heated table to loosen limbs and ramp up relaxation, and the linens used are super soft, like babies’ kneepits. The added hot towel/cold stone face massage uses aromatherapy and soothing stones to relieve sinus congestion, and the peppermint foot scrub relieves aching leg anchors with a tingly, festive scent.
Elements Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.

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.

Technicians also decorate faces with professional makeup applications and facials. Ehmi Nail, Salon & Spa happily opens its doors to private parties, welcoming groups celebrating events ranging from a girls’ night out to the world’s prettiest fantasy-baseball draft.
Let it never be said that Lisa Moise doesn't listen to her customers. Years ago, as she was treating one of her clients, the two began talking about how nice it would be to have a salon where haircuts were more collaborative than cookie-cutter and pedicures didn't make people feel invisible from the feet up. Later, that same customer, Carrie McGehee, would join Lisa as a co-founder of Flower Mound Nails & More. Now, the two pursue their original goal, putting customers first during treatments that range from cuts and highlights to expert mani-pedis. As part of their pursuit of excellence, Lisa and Carrie have established strict standards for membership on their team, requiring their techs to be passionate, conversant, and trained in both customer service and relevant trade skills.
