While sipping glasses of wine or champagne-based cocktails, guests cloaked in white robes sink into plush purple benches as they dip their feet in soothing, whirlpool-free pedicure sinks during mani-pedis. Clients who opt for the Nuclear Fusion package relish in a mani-pedi, massage, and VM signature cocktail—champagne and a splash of peach, mango, and orange juice—and guys can down a beer as nail techs tend to their hands and feet with male-centric mani-pedis.

Owned by Dr. Omar Dalloul, Purity MediSpa uses modern aesthetic procedures to solve common beauty woes and boost client confidence. The staff's arsenal of high-tech equipment includes the Pain Free, Hair Free laser hair-removal system, the versatile Alma Lasers Laser360, and a microdermabrasion tool that destroys impurities such as blackheads, lessens appearance of age spots, sun damage, and acne scarring, and buffs away dulled skin cells to reveal the younger-looking skin underneath. The staff also performs less flashy procedures, including facials infused with such low-tech and natural ingredients as seaweed and vitamins.

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.
