As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Sonya F. Campbell Johnson not only addresses ailments of the skin, hair, and nails, but she also performs cosmetic treatments that whittle years off of faces and treat bodily imperfections. Armed with an arsenal of high-tech equipment and quality skincare products, she battles clients' acne and wrinkles with noninvasive lasers, and she can also use those lasers to zap away unwanted hair and veins. Beauty injections smooth out facial furrows or plump up thinned lips or tonsils, and chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments uncover clearer, younger-looking complexions.
Though Kathy Vanderveen enjoyed her 18 years spent working as a beauty teacher at a local college and a specialist at high-end spas, she never stopped dreaming of opening up a shop of her own. Determined to bring her fantasy to fruition, Kathy gathered a staff of specialists and created Me,Me,Me! Manicures. There, Kathy can focus on her true passion—mani-pedis—as her staff administers professional waxing and eyelash extensions.
Kathy's spa is a tranquil cocoon of sea-green walls, where clients recline on cushy white beds, plush sofas, and overstuffed armchairs. Soft light streams in through billowy curtains, causing the silver furniture to sparkle. Throughout the space, framed pictures proclaim inspirational messages—cheerful adages that you might find crocheted on a pillow or tattooed across the bicep of an unexpectedly sensitive truck driver.
Licensed chiropractor and acupuncturist Robert W. Ferguson starts each of his treatments with a simple goal: to exceed expectations. This goal has remained the driving force behind his work throughout a career that spans two decades, and it has left its mark on his practice at Chiropractic Therapeutics & Rehabilitation. With his patients in mind, Dr. Ferguson built the practice around knowledgeable staffers, up-to-date medical technologies, and a menu of safe, effective services. His noninvasive treatments—which range from acupuncture to auricular therapy, or ear reflexology—work to relieve pain that results from day-to-day activities, such as typing on computers and angrily hurling computers out the window.
For more than a quarter century, Dr. Arthur Sumrall has aided his patients in their quests for wellness and rejuvenation, both inside and out. Along with the staff of Longevity Institute, he crafts custom health plans that address skincare, weight-loss, nutrition, and cosmetic concerns, such as unwanted wrinkles, veins, or imprints from napping against a parking meter. Cosmetic injections and laser treatments help refresh façades, and Longevity Institute’s diverse menu of wellness regimens includes exercise with oxygen therapy and colonics, which encourage healthy digestion and dispel toxins.
Before stepping into his role at Prestige Podiatry, Dr. Jeffrey Agricola, graduated from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in the top 10% of his class and became a board-certified surgeon. His expertise in all things below the ankle helps him treat everything from sports injuries and plantar fasciitis to infections and ingrown dewclaws. Dr. Agricola currently serves as vice-chair of the surgery department at St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital and has been featured on Fox 59. He keeps his own ankles in tip-top shape through sports and foot girdles.
Cindy Burris has massaged her fair share of muscles—more than 21 years' worth. In that time, she's not only refined her mastering of Swedish and deep-tissue massage, she's also learned to incorporate energy work into her skill set. When she's not vanquishing knots and cramps with physical strokes, she's manipulating clients' energy fields during energy work sessions—all of which she designed to relax and reenergize clients.
