In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
The experienced staff members of Advanced Healthcare Center combine their individual talents with a holistic approach to medicine to give patients a long-term alternative to medications and surgery. Dr. Susie Warden, director, and her staff bolster backbones and overall health through spinal exams, adjustments, and inspirational sports montages. Resident massage therapists provide additional torso restoration with various massage techniques customized following chiropractic exams, and physical therapists strengthen muscular health through prescribed exercise regimens. The office's in-house medical physicians provide insight into metabolic cases, nutritional counselors construct dietary plans to nurture the body, and acupuncturists realign energy flows and destroy nearby balloons.
The chiropractic doctors at DuPage Health & Wellness Center entwine Eastern and Western techniques to confront the root of each patient's ailment rather than suppressing symptoms with drugs. Drs. Richard Valdez, Katie King, and Norma Berman unleash their skills on the spinal-decompression table as they address chronic diseases and musculoskeletal pain in adults, children, and overused anatomical models. The trio buttresses spinal treatment with in-depth nutrition guidance. In addition, Valdez, King, and Berman draw from the Eastern concept of chi, performing acupuncture treatments and checking more than 3,000 patients for allergy sensitivities through bioenergetic meridian testing.
The certified Bikram yoga instructors at 26hot draw students from all over the western suburbs to their facility, conveniently located near the Roosevelt Road exit of I-355. Within the 1,800-square-foot space, which is kept at 105 degrees and 40% humidity, yogis move through 26 postures designed to build muscle and cardiovascular health. The one-legged balancing stick pose, for example, puts bodies into a T formation, and the tree pose encourages birds to alight on squared shoulders.
The studio's reception area appropriately greets students with fiery-red couches and warm-yellow walls. At the desk, students can rent yoga mats and towels or purchase beverages such as chilled coconut water.
