After studying chiropractic at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa, Doctor of Chiropractic Brian W. Kurth took over a thriving clinic, then parlayed his success there into his own practice. Now at Kurth Chiropractic, he uses state-of-the-art technology to diagnose spines and help put them aright. Dr. Kurth scans patients' spines for muscle tension, misalignment, and vertebrae playing musical chairs before he develops a custom chiropractic plan. He then enlists massage therapists to ease away patients' pain and discomfort. Their strokes boost circulation and cause muscles to slowly uncoil.
Licensed massage therapist Katie Rhyme offers more than just your typical spa massage experience. Her therapeutic bodywork is grounded in the trigger-point technique—a deep-tissue modality that increases oxygen flow through focused kneading of the body's pressure points. The results are many, ranging from improved range of motion and circulation to a deep state of relaxation. Clients may also solicit the facility's other holistic services such as acupuncture and expert chiropractic care.
Featured by the Consumer Guide to Plastic Surgery, Solaris Medical Spa harbors a staff of professionals well versed in age-battling skin treatments. Patrons seeking a newly polished opera mask can entrust their countenances to the adroit hands of board-certified physician and pharmacist Dr. Marsha Davis. The anti-aging facial smooths skin and discourages wrinkles caused by squinting at the pool-noodle-riddled surface of Loch Ness (a $90 value). Opt for a one-hour deep pore facial to ferret out obstinate blackheads (a $90 value), or choose an exfoliating facial (a $90 value) to eradicate patches of desert from the visage biome. Personalized chemical peels can curtail the signs of acne, sun damage, and fine lines ($70–$90). Depending on the type of peel, clients may need little to no downtime before they can test their results by joining a local porcupine-nuzzling tournament.
As a personal trainer certified by the American Council on Exercise and a licensed massage therapist, Chris Aiello, Jr., has a thorough knowledge of the human body. He created Workout Boss/CrossFit Funky as a facility where clients can tap into his expertise to address issues related to health, posture, and injury all in one place. He chats with patrons during personal-training sessions, encouraging them while blending cardio and a range of exercises in a gym with free weights, cable machines, kettlebells, and punching bags. On massage tables, therapists employ specialized techniques such as myofascial release and lymphatic drainage, which aim to straighten postural irregularities and detoxify muscles, and utilize deep-tissue massage to ease pain from sports or other injuries. The trainer also draws on a stock of recipes and nutritional advice to help clients augment workout plans and shed inches.
Dr. Alexandra Solano, physician and founder of Dr. Solano’s Ageless & Wellness Medical Center, helps patients to realize their health and weight goals by implementing the Ultra Lite program, which promotes weight loss through nutrition, fitness, and dietary supplements. During an initial consultation, a physician or medical assistant performs a comprehensive medical screening and reviews trends from a four-page online questionnaire that can identify food allergies, biochemical imbalances, or lead-plated organs that can hinder weight loss. A medley of lab tests supplies data on thyroid functioning, cholesterol levels, and metabolism, which Dr. Solano uses to generate a custom diet plan that boosts fat burning with a balance of proteins and carbohydrates spread across three daily meals.
