Nestled in Green Gables Farm, Whole Body Studio and Spa nurtures holistic wellness with relaxing yoga classes and supportive personal-training sessions in a tranquil spa setting. Within the serene yoga studio, pupils fluidly glide into seated, reclined, and standing postures during stress-melting Hatha yoga as soft lighting radiates from sloped ceilings and wooden pillars maintain stoic tree poses. Students may also contact Whole Body Studio and Spa to enroll in specialized classes, such as therapeutic prenatal yoga or the Mom and Baby Yoga class, which whimsically whisks new mothers and infants through rejuvenating asanas.
Bronzed Image Tanning darkens and de-blemishes human hides with an arsenal of sun-imitating technology and non-UV machines. Patrons may perk up their pigments with a full 30 days of tanning from a Level 1 bed, which effectively brown birthday suits while eschewing the scalding sands and woefully inedible jellyfish associated with the beach.
As the seventh of eight children, Kim Osborne must have seen her fair share of bumps and bruises. Growing up with many siblings may have contributed to her decision to earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a pre-med emphasis. But nothing could have prepared her for the serious illness her third child experienced shortly after she was born. After an unsuccessful attempt to treat her daughter's condition with traditional medicine, Osborne turned to a local chiropractor. She was on the road to health within a few visits and Osborne has made it her life's mission to help others experience the same healing. Now a chiropractic physician certified in family practice, Kim Osborne, DC, has also received specialized training in acupuncture, botanical medicine, and women's health to better care for her patients.
Dr. Osborne leads the staff at Rockford Wellness & Diagnostic Center in performing advanced diagnostic testing and conservative treatments that focus on preventing disease by seeking out the underlying causes. She uses the low-force Activator Methods adjusting instrument to deliver gentle chiropractic care. Dr. Osborne can analyze saliva to reveal the potential effectiveness of bioidentical hormone therapy or evaluate hair samples to determine heavy-metal toxicity. She also combats the effects of aging and promotes physical healing by saturating bodily tissues with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Bliss Beauty Lounge’s experienced stylists and aestheticians depend on years of bodycare experience and professional-quality treatments to dramatically transform the appearance of their clients' hair and nails. Stylists snip custom looks and slather manes with vitamin-packed haircare products, some of which are vegan and gluten-free. At their stations, nail techs treat digits to french manicures and pedicures before capping nails in polish or gel designs that sparkle brighter than a firefly playing with matches. Other services include facial waxing, highlights, and thermal straightening, a chemical process that can transform curly hair into smooth, flowing locks for up to a year.
