Even though she earned her massage therapy license in 1999, Alison Wajvoda hasn't slowed down when it comes to education. From a stint as a massage therapy instructor at Chicago's Banner to extra training in nutrition and health management at Purdue University-Calumet, she now combines her bodywork expertise with an understanding of what makes the body tick. She blends this know-how with training in reiki and chakra work, balancing inner energies as well as organic systems. Now the owner of Light Body Wellness, LLC, she sets patients on the path to better living with treatments and services ranging from massage and reiki to nutrition and weight loss counseling.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack conquered myriad fields and the skies before pursuing the art of chiropractics. After graduating from college, Tomshack became an officer in the U.S. Air Force, received his MBA, and finally graduated summa cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Calling upon his newly mastered spinal savvy, Tomshack opened his own practice, whose enormous success led to a gradual expansion and eventually became the nationwide network that exists today. At each HealthSource location, teams of licensed chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical trainers work in unison to help provide comprehensive care, restore ailing statures, and lead masterful renditions of the hokey pokey.
At Masters Salon, skilled stylists, aestheticians, and therapists envelop guests in a cloak of indulgent salon treatments certified by Redken and Pureology. As artisans sculpt dos for men, women, children, and their identical Russian dolls, nail techs cosset hands and feet with heated whirlpool chairs and OPI polish, and aestheticians deploy their arsenal of Bioelements facials. To round out the service menu, massage therapists perform full-body and hot-stone massages to make stress melt like a floating candle in a lava pit. The salon accommodates clients of all schedules with an 8 p.m. closing time Monday through Friday and Saturday hours.
Licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Kelly D Opelt-Andrews draws on years of medical and dermatological training to imbue skin with a youthful glow at her skincare and massage studio, Divine Beauty. Whether exfoliating skin with a microdermabrasion treatment or custom facial, Kelly relies on Apriori Beauty products that eschew parabens and synthetic dyes for natural, pH-balanced ingredients. Though she’s well known for facial treatments that restore a healthy luster to cheeks previously occupied by blemishes, Kelly’s skincare prowess does not stop at the neck. Her cleansing body treatments and massages lend equal attention to backs, shoulders, and vestigial tentacles.

During a visit to Dane Porter Massage, the licensed massage therapist's hands rhythmically cascade down clients' spins, undoing painful knots and setting tension free along the way. Dane Porter makes his living helping others relax, unwind, and experience the comfort associated with a pain-free musculoskeletal structure. When he isn't plying his hands at calming Swedish massages, he's generally using techniques like trigger point therapy and deep-tissue massage, both of which can help accelerate healing, increase circulation, and—unlike taking a job as a local landmark—improve mobility.
