Within SoderWorld Healing Arts Center’s A-frame log cabin, wellness professionals nurture body, mind, and spirit. Massage therapists tucked inside the 5,500-square-foot lodge or its detached gazebo heal muscle aches as patrons doze to the distant symphony of an outdoor waterfall. Therapists practice traditional, uncommon, and Asian bodywork treatments, incorporating tools such as heated lava shells and stones. Meanwhile, yoga instructors lead pose sequences and edify students in the art of teaching. A 2.5-acre walking path winds around the facility, delivering patrons to a meditation garden where they can search for inner peace or metal scraps.
In just more than five years, Daniel Palos has acquired an impressive r?sum? as a bodywork practitioner. He practices Eastern and Western techniques as a state-licensed massage therapist, he's certified by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, and he also teaches at Northwestern College's School of Massage Therapy.
Beyond the Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massages he performs at Sacred Touch (located inside Hidden Spa), Daniel specializes in methods geared toward athletes. As a mixed martial artist and as a former personal trainer, he understands the aches and pains that can stem from sports or drinking Gatorade too fast. He uses Kinesio tape in his treatments to reduce pressure on pain receptors and the lymphatic-drainage system, and he incorporates proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation to increase flexibility. Daniel also believes in using holistic practices to improve well-being, including a therapy called The Spiritus, a two-hour session that incorporates chakra balancing, aromatherapy, tibetan singing bowls, and crystals.
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.
No two people, bodies, or injuries are exactly alike, which is why Dr. Mike DeCubellis and his staff at Main Street Chiropractic and Wellness Center draw from a variety of treatment modalities to help clients address stress and lingering pain. Staffers create a customized care plan for each patient with the goal of finding the root of the problem and bringing permanent relief. Then, they use a combination of traditional chiropractic work, x-rays, physiotherapy, and massage to help clients overcome ailments ranging form chronic pain and sciatica to migraines and wear and tear from commuting to work every day on the back of a pet bull.
