The staff at this rehabilitation center believe that everyone reacts differently to a medical treatment—what works for one person may not be the best for another. That’s why they use an array of tests, from blood work to kinetic-chain dysfunction exams, to determine each clients’ unique needs. The experts then formulate the ideal plan of action from the center’s repertoire of treatment options, which is then modified to work with the client’s individual needs. Adjustment techniques shift spinal columns into proper alignment, and soft-tissue treatments improve muscle function after napping upon a porcupine.
Though the emergency room can be a daunting place, The Urgency Room promises a comparable level of care without the stress of a hospital visit. The urgent-care clinic, staffed by board-certified physicians, quickly tends to illnesses and injuries such as broken bones, deep cuts, and everyday sicknesses requiring immediate attention. The staff also tackles standard physicals, drug and alcohol testing, vaccinations, and physical therapy. With a lab, an x-ray machine, and a pharmacy in-house, rarely does a patient need to venture off-site for treatment.

A hair studio, yoga den, and holistic wellness center might seem like a unique combination, but it makes perfect sense to founders Holly Williams and Angela Cronk. Both come from work backgrounds in beauty services and maintain personal lifestyles that emphasize holistic wellness—creating the roots of their center that combines the best of both worlds. At Hagoyah, they’ve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, yoga instructors, and life coaches that provides just those things to all of their clients and students, helping them achieve a personal balance between the physical and mental.
On a regular day at Hagoyah, a massage therapist soothes muscles with various techniques, and elsewhere instructors move through relaxing yoga poses within heated rooms. Aestheticians create their own facial products for clients, and stylists with John Paul Mitchell and other credentials cut and color hair to complement their clients’ looks. The services don't stop at the studio, though. Life coaches and nutritional coaches are also on hand to help clients make lifelong positive changes that can bolster their health inside and out.
At Highpoint Family Vision, Dr. Kinsey Honeyman and her staff help patients of all ages protect their vision with extensive optic care and designer eyewear. Optometrists screen eyeballs for high blood pressure and glaucoma during eye exams with full retinal imaging, or they perform precise diagnoses at any time of day with 24-hour emergency care. The practice has a room devoted to contact-lens styles, and a full lineup of frames from designer brands such as Ray-Ban, Prada, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade encircle custom-made ultralight polycarbonate lenses in progressive bifocal, trifocal, and UV-protection compositions.
