When Dr. Jon Heyer graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic, he had already come around to viewing the human body as a complex, interconnected organism. His desire to put this holistic philosophy into action soon compelled him to open Holistic Health & Chiropractic of Frankfort, an innovative treatment center that eschews symptom-specific methods in favor of chiropractic techniques designed to promote total-body health.
Today, Dr. Heyer continues to lead his patients through three phases of care that work progressively to relieve pain, correct ailments, and maintain newfound health. As a licensed acupuncturist, he takes cues from ancient Chinese medical practices to ease ailments such as fibromyalgia, respiratory disorders, and chronic pain with fine needles. Though he wears his penchant for holistic methods on his white coat sleeves, Dr. Heyer also strives to stay at the forefront of traditional medical technologies. When he isn't studying the latest developments in the world of nutritional supplements, he can be found soothing muscles with ultrasound therapy, mechanical traction, and whispered lullabies.

The staff at Route 2 Wellness doesn't feel it's enough to simply treat your body—they want to help you understand how it works and why––sometimes––it doesn't. Dr. Casey Walker and his team specialize in chiropractic care, using it to treat anything from headaches to scoliosis, dispensing client education along the way so that people can learn to manage their pain and discomfort.
And by adjusting spines, Dr. Walker feels he's not just diminishing physical strain, but also opening up a main channel that allows energy to flow throughout the body. His team supports this holistic mindset with additional services, such as massage therapy and nutritional guidance for specific ailments. Those needing more serious care can also take advantage of physical-therapy sessions, as well as blood testing for early detection of various diseases or just to be sure your veins aren't empty.
Body Bliss's certified massage therapist, Laura Dillon, has been massaging tender physiques for the last two years, specializing in three different types of muscular manipulation. The Swedish massage kneads out kinks after hours of assembling Ikea skyscrapers. The deep-tissue massage delves into the fascia's utmost depths, rooting out the sources of pain and releasing the body's pent-up balrogs. Finally, a hot-stone massage loosens muscles, calms the mind, and settles the central nervous system with precisely positioned warm stones. Whatever finger-flavor you choose, Body Bliss continues the thousand-year tradition of using human touch to reduce anxiety and depression, improve concentration, and develop cutting-edge break-dancing moves.
Hydro Health Spa's certified colon therapists help eliminate toxins and ease digestive discomfort with a gentle colon-hydrotherapy treatment. During the private cleansing procedure a technician uses a closed-water system to flush digestive ductwork of harmful toxins, uncomfortable blockages, and stray road signs as relaxing music hums in the background. Following the treatment, patients often experience relief from constipation, increased energy, and improved circulation. This first refreshing session at Hydro Health Spa includes a complimentary infrared-sauna treatment and a postprocedure probiotic supplement to facilitate intestinal movement and incite envy from stalled amusement-park lines.
