In the comfort of serene, private rooms, massage therapist Tracie Nichols treats clients with a medley of kneading styles to address their individual ailments. During her more then seven years of experience, Tracie has specialized her skills around massage styles that assist in pain management, such as deep-tissue, trigger-point-therapy, and fibromyalgia massage. As a frequent student in the field as well as a practitioner, Tracie has added an array of other muscle-soothing styles to her repertoire, including hot-stone massage, cold-stone therapy for migraine sufferers, and cupping methods believed to infuse the skin with a more youthful, saucer-esque appearance. Clients may choose to add aromatherapy elements into their sessions, infusing the regular oil with calming scents, or culminate their service by dipping hands and feet into softening paraffin wax.
Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board-certified physician with six years of liposuction-specific experience, oversees the fat-cell-siphoning procedures at ZBodySculpt. After decades as a board-certified physician, Dr. Zelko turned his focus to liposuction—and discovered that despite the huge demand for the slimming procedure, people often avoided it out of fear, discomfort, cost, and allergies to doctors. This realization prompted him to seek out alternative forms of fat reduction, and Dr. Zelko now treats his patients with minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that require little to no downtime, reduced cost, and local anesthesia for fewer complications.
Two decades in podiatry have prepared Drs. Rosanne B. Clement and Jeff Osbourne to treat an array of hoof-related symptoms at their private practice. The pair specializes in laser treatments and traditional surgery to remove bunions, toenail fungus, and ingrown toenails, and nestles feet into diabetic shoes. Their clinic is also one of the few in the Midwest certified in casting for Sole Supports orthotics, custom foot inserts preferred by many college and professional athletes. When they're not busy treating patients in the office, the doctors dedicate their time to unique pursuits; Dr. Clement gives back to her fields as a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, and Dr. Osbourne makes house calls to treat less mobile patients.
The eye experts at Dr. Wagner’s Southridge Optical remedy blurry vision with prescription lenses fitted into more than 1,000 styles of brand-name frames. During a comprehensive eye exam, Dr. Wagner runs peepers through the gamut, assessing eye health and calibrating prescriptions with high-tech equipment, multiple stages of testing, and retinal photographs. Afterward, the optometrist guides visitors through lens options that can solve near- and-farsightedness and help wearers to differentiate between their mailboxes and the family dog. Clients then select face-flattering frames by such designers as Coach ($179.95– $319.95), Versace ($199.95– $529.95), and Harley Davidson ($159.95– $199.95). Prescription eyeglasses are typically ready for pickup in about a week, so in the meantime, clients should string together temporary glasses using Coke bottles, superglue, and glitter.
?I myself, I use it all the time?I have three kids and three businesses,? says The B12 Store owner Lisa Ruiz in an interview in the Journal Times. Lisa and the team at this Regency Mall shop tout the benefits of dodging vitamin B12 deficiency by partaking in weekly, fortnightly, or monthly supplement injections. Outside of the syringe, B12 can be found in dietary sources such as meat, dairy, and bingo balls?and its consumption may help stave off concerns such as fatigue and GI troubles.
A licensed doctor of chiropractic, Eliesha Evans uses a “whole person approach” to wellness, which means she first looks for the underlying causes of pain and then suggests interventions and lifestyle adjustments to address them. This method is what distinguishes the approach at Evans Chiropractic Health Clinic from that of conventional medicine: instead of focusing on treating disease after it occurs, the clinic emphasizes improving health to reduce the risk of illness or pain before it happens. The resulting treatment regimen may consist of spinal adjustments and massage therapy, lifestyle advice and nutrition counseling, or even laser therapy. Often, patients learn exercises they can use to correct their problems from the comfort of their home or the lobby of an ex’s apartment building.
