Dragonfly Integrative Wellness, Inc.’s therapists draw from Eastern methods to help improve clients’ overall health and mental well-being with massages and other holistic therapies. During craniosacral therapy and reiki, practitioners place gentle touches on bodies to release tension and balance bodies’ energy. Tui na incorporates traditional massage techniques to focus on chronic pain at acupressure points. Available massage therapies include Thai massage, which is based on stretching movements, and shiatsu bodywork, which helps to relieve pain and stress by stimulating pressure points.
Instructors at North Shore Yoga and therapists at Integrated Healing Center promote holistic well-being with a one-two punch of movement-based classes and salutary bodywork sessions. Owner Sharyn Galindo honed her yogic talents over 10 years of dedicated practice, including occasional sojourns to Mysore, India and Thailand where she studied Ashtanga techniques while accumulating enough frequent-flyer miles to vacation on Jupiter. Under her tutelage, North Shore Yoga instructors emphasize Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga styles, helping students deepen stretches by heating rooms up to 84 degrees for the majority of sessions. To augment a lifestyle of physical wellness, Integrated Health Center's therapists dole out healing bodywork and alternative treatments, including acupuncture and massage sessions that can help address clients' individual needs by incorporating aromatherapy or organic, herb-infused oils.
One of seven Tickel-family spine shifters, Dr. James Tickel treats Chicagoland vertebrae with expertise honed over a lifetime of international healing stewardship. The doctor kicks off each patient's inaugural session by evaluating their joints, muscles, and nerves individually and in concert, uncovering any of chiropractic's myriad treatable conditions, including tennis elbow, allergies, headaches, and general tension after a summer job subbing for Atlas. Tickel's certified un-crookers specialize in upper-cervical-specific work and sports-focused therapies, with other healing services including therapeutic modalities and multiple methods of massage.
Many people spend years of training to specialize in one specific trade. Licensed aesthetician Gala has specialized training in 10 areas of aesthetics, including certification in myriad laser treatments. Relying on top products from Janssen Organics and glo minerals, she applies her knowledge to a range of services that beautify bodies inside and out. Her ultrasonic-cavitation treatments help melt stubborn fat cells while contouring the body and reducing the appearance of cellulite. These treatments also use radiofrequency to tighten sagging skin, increase collagen production, and tune in to a reading of War of the Worlds. Gala can massage newly slimmed forms with deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques to reduce pain and improve range of motion. Skin gets a second chance with Gala?s green peel, a safe peeling method that can renew aging and sun-damaged faces.
Ixchel Muhlberger has at least two ways to treat each patient who walks into Mayan Moon Healing. First, the licensed massage therapist can use soothing massage strokes to increase circulation and ease muscle tension, not to mention relieve pain and even improve athletic performance. But for problems that massage can't help, she can call upon her background in Oriental medicine to provide acupuncture treatments, which improve energy flow and help promote the body's self-healing properties. Taking these two talents together, she can customize her treatments to address a wide range of problems, from anxiety and depression to chronic pain, migraines, and sleep disturbances. Though her massages and acupuncture treatments can help clients deal with all these issues, Ixchel specializes in orthopedic injuries, women's health, and pain management.
Though Spa Face Nouveau won't literally grant you a new face, it will make your face feel like new. That's because the beauty hotspot treats skin issues including rosacea, uneven skin tone, and fine lines with specialized facials. The organic antioxidant facial soothes skin with vitamin-rich, earth-culled ingredients, and the acne treatment zaps blemishes with peptides, an oxygen treatment, and probiotic ingredients.
And faces aren't the only things that Spa Face Nouveau pampers. The relaxatorium also infuses the whole body with essential oils and heat that stimulates weight loss during the aromatherapy body treatment and slays stress and chronic aches with reflexology.
