For founder Brandi Kirk, the creation of a facility that promotes mental and physical well-being for its visitors represents the realization of her life's dream. Kirk Center for Healthy Living accomplishes this dream by employing physical therapists that specialize in treating pelvic complications for men and women. Additionally, the facility helps to keep minds and bodies fit by hosting yoga and Pilates classes for students seeking a guided workout in a small-group setting.
Specialists in massage and reflexology—including Andrea Carli, who promotes healthy organ and gland function throughout the body by manipulating reflex points on the hands and feet—employ a number of soothing and therapeutic modalities as they gingerly relieve stress-laden musculature with the confidence of Warren Buffett during a game of Monopoly.

Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 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, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
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.
The people that we serve tend to be anyone who has suffered for a long time.

Our patients tend to be people who want more than masking symptoms with harmful drugs

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.
