Sugar Grove Health Center's skin-smoothing services revitalize and pamper the body's largest organ with personalized treatment. The center’s diamond-tipped Viora microdermabrasion tool combines exfoliation and suction to slough off dead skin cells and promote collagen and elastin growth, encouraging firmer, younger-looking skin to hang out on the epidermal surface rather than congregating in the body’s basement listening to folk records. As fine lines and superficial scars give way to a youthful, healthy visage, face-pampering patients will finally have the opportunity to rejoin the trick-or-treating circuit or order off the kids' menu without being assaulted by sidelong glances. The brief, noninvasive procedures may be repeated at short intervals with no downtime.
For more than a quarter-century, Doctor of Chiropractic David Leger has helped patients from throughout Illinois to lessen discomfort and achieve their wellness goals.

Anu Buzruk learned Hatha yoga at the Sree Swamy Vivekananda Centre of Teacher Education in India, taught the style in India for six years, and then moved to Chicago and completed Lotus Yoga Center’s 200-hour training course. Yet, even with all of her training, she works to continually improve her teaching at Yoganubhav Studio by regularly scheduling feedback sessions with her students and their often neglected mats. Since starting her career, she has taught Hatha yoga to more than 400 students, and she employs their feedback to tailor her classes to their needs. Through this personalization of her classes, many students have reported her Hatha yoga classes have helped to increase their flexibility and alleviate issues such as anxiety, digestive difficulty, and menstrual disorders.
True Health Studio liquidates excess fat with intense, back-to-basics classes that focus on intentional movements and no-nonsense techniques. Students tone silhouettes and torch calories in the popular KettleBell BootKamp classes, led by certified Russian Kettlebell instructor Steve Bradford, who teaches moves used by professional athletes. Zumba helps students shed pounds with hip-shaking dance moves, and Ludus boot camps inspire muscles to grow into bigger muscles with unconventional tools such as ropes, hammers, and tires. Classes stay comfortable with no more than 10 students, giving instructors time to work with each participant, modify routines for customized workouts, and survey the class on tortoise-drawn carriages.
Despite the way hypnosis is depicted in movies and TV, patients don't enter into an unconscious state, unaware of the world around them and forced to act like monkeys whenever they hear the word banana. Instead, the reality of hypnosis, according to Meridian Peak Hypnosis, is that it puts patients in touch with their subconscious. Hypnotherapists lead patients into a hypnotic state—something akin to a daydream—where they can address a wide range of issues, including stress, claustrophobia, overeating, and cigarette addiction. At Meridian Peak Hypnosis, hypnotherapists aim to dispel common misconceptions during thorough consultations, walking patients through the process and discussing their issues, before recommending a plan, which may include private sessions.
At Bikram Yoga Aurora, certified instructors lead groups through Bikram Yoga’s various postures inside a balmy, but welcoming studio. Both beginners and experienced practitioners stretch, bend, and balance side-by-side, all while controlling their huffs and puffs with Bikram's signature breathing exercises. The studio itself plays a major role during every session with the elevated temperatures leading to a number of potential benefits. This heat can improve circulation, make muscles more flexible, and even flush toxins from the body through sweating instead of taking plunger to your ear.
