The medical staff at Access Health Care knows that problems in one area of the body can affect the entire body. To address this, it provides a host of medical disciplines across three locations.
Chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists soothe the central nervous system and liberate bodily energies blocked by stress. At the Hoffman Estates office, dentists keep oral health in check with checkups and periodontal treatments. They also bolster waning confidence with Zoom! teeth whitening.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
If a name like Angels Feet wasn't enough to let a customer know this business's focus, one step inside would do the trick. Long rows of cushy massage chairs draped in clean linens line the long studio, each paired with a matching ottoman just waiting to cradle a foot or two. Therapists lead each newly arrived customer to one of these chairs, where they welcome feet to soak in a salt-water solution as they massage the guest's scalp, neck, shoulders, and arms. After a dousing of lotion, the therapist begins the foot-reflexology massage, which seeks to quell stress and ease pain by targeting areas of the feet believed to correspond to organs in the body. Finally, they wrap feet in steamed towels and give ankles and legs an invigorating stretch. When the session concludes, customers refresh themselves and help purge toxins from their systems with a cold beverage and a nap on a giant magnet.
Jennifer Niesel talks about massage with the kind of reverence others might reserve for a priceless work of art. From the first stroke of any of her custom massages, it’s clear that practices what she preaches. Her artistry extends to specialty modalities such as her hot-stone massage, during which warm stones become extensions of her hands as they render muscles more malleable than a bar of gold Play-Doh.
Jennifer counts Swedish, prenatal, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage among her other talents. She prides herself in her ability to educate and provide tools to clients to ensure that their muscles stay limber between visits to her studio.
The premise of Advanced Physical Medicine & Rehab is that it takes experts in many different fields to truly heal the human body. Chiropractic physicians, licensed massage therapists, physical therapists, and clinical psychologists work together to ensure patients' minds travel the same road to health their bodies do. The office has onsite x-ray, a full gym for performance training and physical therapy rehabilitation, and fully outfitted massage therapy rooms. Beyond chiropractic care, the doctors and therapists design custom treatment plans that are tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
