At Midwest Physical Medicine and Rehab Center, muscle cramps melt and spinal disks pop into position under the hands of board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic Tahseen Moin. He and his team believe the body to be capable of overcoming most musculoskeletal ailments without the use of drugs or surgery. To this end, they combine noninvasive techniques, such as adjustments and massages, with nutrition and physical therapy to return bodies to normal function.

When not administering adjustments or deep-tissue massages, Dr. Moin also helps clients whittle away excess weight by tailoring diet and exercise regimens.
Chiropractic physician Keith Nemec and his wife Laurie practice advanced alternative health-care methods that focus on achieving well-being through holistic therapies. A 20- to 30-minute consultation preps patients for the one-hour therapy treatment, during which the doctor uses a machine and two gas field wands to conduct a gentle lymphatic massage. This noninvasive treatment is designed to give thick, stagnant lymph fluid a water-like consistency to stimulate drainage of toxins from cells, glands, tissues, organs, funny bones, and melancholy joints. In addition, the procedure aims to disperse white-blood-cell traffic jams, sending them speeding in all directions of the body to dispel inflammation, bacteria, and instances of vein rage.
Veronica Lugo was introduced to massage after sustaining injuries in a car accident. As part of her therapy, Lugo went to a chiropractor's office to receive clinical massages and experienced first-hand the healing properties of therapeutic bodywork. Wall sconces cast a warm circle of ambient light inside her treatment room, where Lugo puts her massage license, continuing education in clinical techniques, and spring-loaded extra arms to good use. She prefers to root out chronic aches by helping her clients over an extended period of time. "Ideally it's best that they do massage regularly, at least once a month," she says. "I like it when they come in regularly so I can actually see how it helps."

Though the intimate Claudio James Studio Salon only has two workstations, it overflows with passion and excitement from its duo of resident hair specialists. Owner and hairstylist Claudio James Carrera is in charge of the cutting and conditioning services, from trimming the tresses of children and adults to smoothing and hydrating strands with Brazilian Blowout Zero treatments and deep conditioners infused with fruit acids and essential oils. At the other chair stands colorist Angie Meza—a 5+ year veteran of the coloring and makeup industry—who foils highlights and sheathes locks in all-over color from Goldwell products and a bottle of liquidated Skittles. The pair also exclusively uses concoctions from Aveda, American Crew, and Moroccanoil in their bright blue-colored shop, and offers a 7 Day Guarantee, which allows each client to have their hair fixed free of charge if they are unsatisfied with the original outcome.
