The voluminous selection of services at Beyond Bare has something for every part and for every person, from hair extensions to body contouring to spa services just for men. Technicians and aestheticians are available seven days a week, and they even travel to clients' homes.
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.
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.
For more than 30 years, the ladies at Women's Workout & Wellness have cultivated a supportive environment in which women can focus on health, fitness, and wellness. Whether grooving through Zumba sessions, pushing weight sleds, performing lifts, or sweating, students find plenty of challenges in the center’s classes. Staffers gauge fitness level by analyzing BMI and testing cardio, strength, flexibility, and the ability to karate-chop airborne cucumbers. Experts also lend advice on nutritional intake and help clients set personalized goals. Before and after sweat sessions, ladies can suit up and cool down in the spacious showers and locker rooms at each location. Daycare is available at some locations for a nominal fee.
Board-certified physician and surgeon Dr. Mohammad Ghani and his trained staff eliminate unwanted body fuzz with laser hair-removal treatments suitable for most skin types. During each treatment, a licensed medical aesthetician hovers an Alma laser over the desired patch of follicle foliage, destroying each hair down to the root with pulses of light and withering insults about its keratin content. They can also wield a CoolGlide laser to treat darker skin. The treatment can evict hair from a small area⎯preparing bikini lines, hands, or feet for the lead role in a remake of Flipper ⎯ or defur large areas such as the chest and back.
