The licensed massage therapists at Bridgeview, Orland & Romeoville Chiropractic Centers extinguish pain and soreness with muscle-melting Swedish-massage techniques. Tender tendons relax under smooth strokes and gentle kneads as increased circulation rushes extra oxygen and magic school buses to aching muscles. Therapists target stiffness in joints with applied pressure and stretching techniques while eradicating toxins trapped in knots. Unwind minor kinks with an express 30-minute treatment or target a network of knots with a 60-minute session to leave bodies more relaxed than a nudist colony’s dress code.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude.
At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis. Licensed, board-certified acupuncturist Shannan Walker performs sessions that help relieve pain and stress. A progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
New U Med Spa's director, Dr. Jawdat Abboud, and his crew of board-certified cosmetic surgeons fill facial crevices with safe and effective Botox treatments. The FDA–approved solution (a $16/unit value) is gently injected into unwanted face wrinkles, transforming fine-lined mugs into visages that look as youthful as a newly hatched pop star. The natural, protein-based blend is designed to plump collapsed lines for up to four months while blocking nerve signals and sending contracting muscles on vacation. Though the quick procedure results in minimal discomfort and no necessary downtime, the doctor may apply an ice pack or numbing cream to desensitize the area. Supplemental units of Botox facilitate larger treatment areas or allow for multiple visits to create longer-lasting effects.
Cancer patients turn to the Ayre Clinic for Contemporary Medicine for compassionate-and-quality treatments. Dr. Steven G. Ayre and his supporting staff take a three-prong approach to their comprehensive care: tumor treatments, nutritional plans, and mind-and-body therapy, such as meditation. Dr. Ayre is constantly tweaking his methods, as he is deeply dedicated to medical innovation.
Some people have always known their calling, but many find it only when they?re searching for something else. Dr. Victor Manzo found his passion for chiropractic medicine while pursuing his business degree. After a family chiropractor relieved uncomfortable symptoms that were interfering with his life, he was inspired to take a new path and share that same healing with others.
Today, Dr. Manzo serves as Dimensional Family Wellness's owner, chiropractic doctor, and wellness coach. He frees clients of pain and health concerns through a range of services, including chiropractic care, corrective exercises, lifestyle and nutrition advice, and massage therapy. Dr. Manzo?s approach seeks to remove impediments to natural healing instead of relying on outside treatments such as medication and scaring problems away. His methods have helped patients with maladies ranging from allergies and bodily pain to osteoporosis and headaches.
At Effortless Wellness Studio, the name says it all. Here, the staff aims to bring out the best in the appearances of their clients with non-invasive procedures that zap fat without the pain of surgery or the lasers of comic book villains. They also offer the ionic foot detox, a treatment that rids bodies of toxins while helping to balance hormones, boost circulation, and reduce joint pain.
