The power of touch is applied every day inside Massage Wellness Center, where licensed massage therapists help patients find relief from discomfort using deep-tissue, relaxation, and sports massage modalities. At the helm of the center is Dr. Richard Jones, who further alleviates pain and helps prevent future issues with chiropractic adjustments and low-level laser light therapy treatments.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.

SmartLipo Laser and Cosmetic Center's aims to expunge the signs of aging on weatherworn head façades with skin burnishing facials and state-of-the-art CO2 laser resurfacing, a treatment that WebMD describes as an “anti-aging breakthrough.” To kick things off, one of these gurus treats faces to a 15-minute microdermabrasion, a surface-sprucer that removes the outer layer of the epidermis with a controlled stream of exfoliating crystals from a jet nozzle. In addition to sloughing away dead cells, this treatment unearths a fresher skin stratum and lessens the appearance of fleshy flaws, including blemishes, fine lines, and sun damage. After expunging pore pollutants and burrowing face gophers, guests then move on to the 45-minute CO2 laser resurfacing treatment. These seasoned staffers gently sweep frontispieces with high-frequency beams of light, removing old skin and spurring collagen into production mode to help tighten epidermises and diminish deep wrinkles caused by sun exposure, aging, and James Cagney impersonations. Although topical anesthesia cream is applied before the procedure, most clients report minimal discomfort. Postlaser redness or puffiness typically vanishes like loose pocket change within a few days, with results lasting for up to several years.
Medlab's teams of medical professionals quantify and assess important bodily systems at locations throughout a five-state Midwest region. Trained to work with patients of all ages, phlebotomists deftly retrieve blood with minimal discomfort, then process the samples to analyze vital statistics such as cholesterol, glucose levels, and sodium. Wait times that average 10 minutes free up precious time for patients.
