The practitioners at the award-winning Integrated Physical Medicine have created a healthcare formula for their clients, combining chiropractic care with physical therapy and massage therapy. The doctors and therapists seek to rid their clients of pain by aiming to adjust spines and help strained muscles achieve normal movement again. Services range from relaxing therapeutic massages to nutritional counseling, though popular treatments include banishing migraines, injuries, and back problems.
A naturally swift runner, the licensed massage therapist at Allison Wellness & Mobile Massage travels up to 50 miles out of Mokena and Bourbonnais to help alleviate tension and sore muscles. Once arriving on location, the therapist unfolds the table and sets to work customizing massages for infinite configurations of sore spots and body types. With more than 10 years of experience, the massage therapist has had ample time refining such specialized modalities as shiatsu, cranial-sacral, lymphatic, and prenatal massages.
Though Dr. Sathish Narayanappa Babu trekked across Asia, Europe, and the United States to practice as a physician and cardiothoracic surgeon, he always took notice of how different cultures define beauty. Now, as the medical director and founder of Simply Serenity Medi Spa & Hair Salon, Dr. Narayanappa, alongside a team of trained technicians, beautifies clients with his worldly knowledge of aesthetic treatments. Along with classic salon and spa services, the Orland Park haven offers a selection of laser treatments, body-contouring devices, and weight-loss systems, which aid the staff as they eliminate body hair and smooth cellulite.
Though it’s been open fewer than three years, Glimmer Salon has already expanded four times—a testament to its rapidly growing clientele and penchant for reinvention. Throughout the sprawling, open space, a team of amiable mane masters snips, colors, and styles strands to each client's specifications. The staff also performs services such as smoothing treatments, facial waxing, and massages. Warm earth tones blanket the walls and complement the sleek hardwood floors, and high-quality hair products line the glass shelves, plotting to swan dive into the coiffures of clients passing by.

Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
