For more than 30 years, DuPage Chiropractic Centre has been providing whole-body care for patients, treating everything from general pain to headaches, work-related injuries, and fatigue. Dr. Sally A. Pepping is the chiropractic head of a large office team that includes doctors, massage therapists, and physical therapists. The DuPage staff takes time to listen carefully to your needs and find out about any possible problem areas, then helps you to understand the care being offered, so you're more involved in the healing and relaxing process.
Visits begin with an initial consultation and evaluation, then move onto a custom therapeutic massage with a therapist certified in PNF stretching, which increases range of motion and flexibility and promotes healing. The office promotes comfort throughout visits, from the sunlight that pervades the treatment rooms to the lush plants set against gold-tinted walls in the waiting area, which has more cushioned seating than a movie theater with twin mattresses for aisles.
Arming Windy City's flower followers with a bevy of buxom blossoms since 1889, Amling's Flowers brightens occasions across the spectrum with its fresh floral arrangements. Built from the fruits of partnerships with independent petal peddlers, Amling's artistic arrangements help express emotions fit for a range of occasions, from birthdays to funerals to the first of many joyous parking citations. Lilacs soothe schnozes and seers with a sense-pleasing blend of lavender roses and fragrant hydrangea ($39.95), while the Cotton Candy's bursts of roses, carnations, and chrysanthemums issue forth with pastel explosions not seen since Gregor Mendel cross-bred hyacinths with a stick of dynamite ($34.95+).
Scattered across nine states, Mini U Storage's secure facilities make frequent cameos on the reality TV show Storage Wars.

The Mini U Storage staff further assists clients in the moving process by offering complimentary rental trucks, along with boxes, moving supplies, and locks for purchase.
After running a daycare for 10 years and coming home at night to raise her own three children, Tiffani Wilson realized that sometimes parents need a night out. To meet this need Tiffani opened Just Kidding Around, offering parents the flexibility to drop off their kids aged 18 months–12 years for hourly stretches with no long-term commitment, contract, or promises to bring back their leftovers for the staff. Visitors are greeted by a DCFS-, first-aid-, and CPR-certified staff at the pristine, socks-only play area that combines a classroom, indoor playground, and kid-sized lounge. While under the care of Tiffani and her crew, kids take part in age-appropriate learning activities, such as studying math, science, phonics, and art, with plenty of time left over for educational games and video games. Additionally, healthy snacks are provided by Quality Catering for Kids for $5 per meal.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
