A group of doctors, united by the desire to blend progressive and traditional healing practices, banded together to launch HealthMedica Canada. The group's original endeavour met success, and today, the healthcare company peppers the Canadian landscape. Though it now has nearly 20 locations across five provinces, HealthMedica Canada remains true to its roots—each clinic's medical team takes a modern approach to traditional healing. Services range from chiropractic care to laser weight loss, and incorporate equipment such as class-IV lasers and computerized spinal-decompression apparatuses. The company also vends products for cosmetic and nutrition purposes, and produces literature, including expository articles and haikus, on topics related to integrated healthcare.

Canadian Decompression & Pain Center has more in common with a haunted house than first meets the eye. Often, when a patient lies down on one of the treatment tables, it starts to shift on its own. Sadly for horror-movie fans, though, a computer controls the table, and its intentions are purely good. The spinal-decompression treatment—part of the centre's three-part neuro-decompression-therapy regimen—helps deliver fresh blood to chronically pained discs, working to strengthen and repair them over time. The doctors may even give patients an oxygen mask to breathe through during spinal decompression, which forces out even more toxins.

At 20 locations across the country, the Canadian Decompression & Pain Center provides this cutting-edge treatment. The staff's expertise doesn't end with pain management, however. The seasoned practitioners can also dole out eight med-spa services, including eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, teeth whitening, and injectable dermal fillers.

For the specialists at Enlighten Laser Services, lasers are not simply a beauty tool, but a powerful ally in the fight against some of the skin's most prevalent problems. At each of their locations, the staff calls on many forms of this noninvasive technology?from hair and spider-vein removal to cellulite reduction and skin tightening?to tone, sculpt, and brighten clients' bodies, bringing out their natural beauty.

The clinics also possess a knack for traditional skin care. Their on-site aestheticians know that every client's skin is unique, much like every snowflake's 12-digit identification number. They demonstrate this philosophy by customizing each treatment to suit the client's skin type, skin tone, and beauty goals. Before administering any of their facials, body-slimming laser services, or IPL acne clearance treatments, the staff consults with clients about their history and answers any questions.

Since its inception in 1992, Curves has been specifically designed with women in mind. Founders Gary and Diane Heavin set out to create a supportive, encouraging atmosphere in which women could get in shape without feeling self-conscious. Their unofficial motto, "no makeup, no men, no mirrors," is now repeated at nearly 10,000 locations in more than 85 countries, helping women of all ages and fitness levels reach their health goals. To cater to the all-female client base, their equipment and specialized workouts are built to enhance the feminine physique.

Their classic 30-minute workout is designed to work the entire body. As ladies move from station to station, they complete a circuit-style workout that intersperses weight training with cardio sessions designed to maintain heart rate. Most of the 13 machines are double positive, which means they work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement—simultaneously toning the abs and back, or the chest and vestigial tail. Each machine also supports the CurvesSmart system, which tracks each patron's individual progress. Before getting started, clients receive a card with their personal fitness information embedded within. When the card is inserted into a machine, a green light lets them know that they’re working at the correct intensity level. As muscles get stronger, the workouts get tougher, and at the end of each session, a progress report lists details on muscle strength and the number of calories burned.

Within Shanti Hot Yoga, heat flows from radiant-heating panels and mirrors reflect glowing wall sconces as students bend and flow through postures. Led by certified instructors, classes conform to Shanti Hot Yoga’s values, using the 60- to 90-minute sessions to help students to be healthy, accessible, and peaceful. With a focus on community and eco-awareness, the instructors lead classes for all experience levels, offering help to students who have accidentally super-glued themselves to the cork flooring. The heated studio helps to deepen stretches, and classes provide benefits such as decreased stress, improved posture, and the ability to control the urge to smash buildings when enraged.
