Whether visitors need to ease pain, heal an aliment, or simply keep their bodies relaxed and working, chances are that Vitality Health Center will have their solution. The center, which was named a runner up in Naperville's 2013 list of its best clinics, employs a diverse and friendly staff that runs the gamut from spine specialists and massage therapists to acupuncturists and fitness instructors, each of whom strives to keep their clients healthy and pain-free through caring, personalized treatments. Those nursing muscular injuries can benefit from services such as physiotherapy and corrective exercises, whereas those looking to keep themselves healthy and fit can attend a fitness class, get nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice, or channel their inner chrysalis in one of the center's slimming body wraps, which are applied in a private room with video streaming capabilities.
Eterna MedSpa's dedicated staff of doctors and beauty specialists provides clients with an array of customized, medically-based services. The treatment will begin with a skin consultation in which an experienced face mechanic checks epidermises for compatibility with the treatment and worn down fanbelts causing nasolabial folds to squeak with every smile. Faces continue to garner attention with the dermaplaning service (a $100 value), which exfoliates dead skin cells lounging along the outer layers of the skin. Utilizing a sharp blade and a steady hand, the pain-free process is designed to shave off dull skin cells and fine hairs while requiring no downtime. To complement newly silkified complexions, skull blankets are finished with a sunscreen application infused with liquefied compliments on your newly glowing visage.
The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness.

Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.
Both the Chicago and Oak Park locations welcome guests with an abundance of natural light and cheerful green exercise machines.

Fine Skin Dermatology and Medical Spa director Renuka H. Bhatt, MD keeps a close eye on her staff of board-certified dermatologists, aestheticians, and physicians' assistants as they work to foster skin rejuvenation.

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.
