On a trip to Chicago from his native Italy, young Mario Tricoci changed his life forever. The fledgling hairdresser stopped in at a prestigious salon, where he impressed the owner with his impeccable display of skill and landed himself a job. The next six decades brought strings of industry awards and the opening of his very own salon, which soon exploded into 26 locations in four states. With his styling prowess proven both to the industry and to the clients he encountered each day, the coiffeur decided to share his gift with others. In 2004, he established Tricoci University to foster a new generation of cosmetologists and spa technicians trained to thrive in the luxury-spa industry.
Throughout the Midwest, Tricoci prot?g?s study a rigorous curriculum in high-end salon and spa surroundings to learn how to create beautiful hairdos, choose skin-flattering cosmetics, and beautify nails and skin. A team of experienced industry professionals readies pupils for the beauty world with in-depth classes, and outside education arrives via video demonstrations and guest-artist lectures on Vidal Sassoon's Wedge-Bob Postulate. More advanced students get a preview of their career to come by beautifying real people during instructor-supervised treatments, which lend the stylist essential experience as the client enjoys a pampering session at a discounted rate.
The rays of the sun. The flicker of candlelight. The soft glow of fireflies on a summer evening. Humans are attracted to natural radiance, even in the metaphorical sense. While faces may not actually have the power to emit light, it's no surprise that phrases like "he was beaming" and "she lit up when she saw him" often find their way into the English language. The aestheticians at Medical Arts Unlimited's Advanced Skin Care Medical Spa understand the desire to keep the fires of youth burning bright. Ranging from facials and chemical peels to microdermabrasion and Botox injections, their results-oriented clinical treatments take years off of features while simultaneously delaying further signs of aging. In addition to their traditional treatments, aestheticians also equip beautifying technologies, including IPL and DioLite lasers, to keep skin healthy with the aid of the safest science. They also extend their handiwork's effects with a full range of products designed for the everyday maintenance of at-home use.
The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
Dr. Reena Jacob, the chiropractor and owner of The Healing Groves, doesn't just fight injury; she also works to pre-empt it. Through manual manipulation, nonsurgical orthopedics, and physical rehabilitation, Dr. Jacob helps clients live comfortable, pain-free lives, and beyond simply helping them overcome past ailments, she helps them prevent future ones. Helping her out are massage therapists who practice The John Barnes' Myofascial Release (MFR) approach. This method entails applying gentle touch and sustained pressure to injured areas, and targets a number of ailments including back pain, migraines, and menstrual conditions. Depending on each client's needs, her team of therapists provides other modalities as well, such as the stretch-focused Thai massage and gentle Swedish massage, which brings about a state of bliss usual achieved only by lounging on a beach while a beautiful manatee feeds you grapes.
Spherical lights hang from the salon's ceiling like glowing snow globes, casting honey light on cherry-red walls and a copper floor speckled with stars. Amid these jazzy accents, skilled stylists manipulate strands with sleek scissor cuts and bold color highlights. Guests can also request a specialty wax, ideal for removing hair from eyebrows, upper lips, and beloved bald caps.
