Tree Huggers at Home's name isn't merely whimsical—it's a philosophy. The eco-conscious business aims to put the Earth first in all of its services. Its bulk grocery store, for instance, stocks completely vegetarian products, many of them vegan and sourced from Michigan. The staff members also research each product to ensure its status as sustainable and eco-friendly. The ever-growing inventory spans items such as tempeh, Dayia cheese, assorted grains, and dried fruit, along with household products such as green toiletries and cleaners for a less chemical lifestyle.
The shop's focus on less wasteful living extends beyond the products themselves. All items are package-free, relying on guests to bring reusable containers such as canvas bags or old mason jars. That environmentally-conscious touch extends to Tree Huggers' recycling center, which accepts materials not often picked up curbside. The organization's team members also travel off-site to homes and businesses, giving consultations and workshops on healthful practices.
With two locations in Battle Creek, Vision Center At Meijer's eye mavens outfit more than 700 frames with lenses carefully crafted in their own laboratory to specifically suit the eyes and face of each patient. Professionally administered eye exams determine the prescription strength required to correct eyeball anomalies, and the laboratory can upgrade any lens with tints, Transitions, or antireflective coatings that save one from endless staring contests with one's own eyes.
Family Fitness and FitZone for Women are spread across six locations, but they share a common goal: to help guests find their ideal physique. They accomplish this mission by filling their 15,000- to 25,000-square-foot facilities with ellipticals, arc trainers, and treadmills that engage cardios, cores, and limbs alongside group training classes led by certified personal and group fitness instructors. Visitors can also keep tabs on their progress with the centers’ fitness monitoring program and body mass testing.
Dr. Kathryn Kilpatrick focuses her chiropractic expertise on boosting energy and soothing pain. She rectifies the spine with low-impact adjustments and boosts the metabolism with nutritional supplements and supplements to supplement the supplements. She also summons the aid of machines, such as the Zerona laser for body contouring, infrared pads for detoxification, and movie projectors for prescription-strength screenings of The Brave Little Toaster.
The team at Michigan Beauty Institute, which is affiliated with Clyde Park Chiropractic, focuses on noninvasive therapies that leave skin looking younger. Microcurrent facials stimulate muscles and surrounding tissues, and ultrasonic and radio-frequency liposuction treatments break down fat and cellulite. The crew also offers elastin-infusion therapy, a cosmetic procedure that was originally used to help wounded soldiers heal more quickly and with less scarring. The cell-renewal therapy is designed to turn back the hands of time by up to two years, or the average duration of a microdermabrasion treatment on the Statue of Liberty.
At the helm of Clear Connections Chiropractic, Drs. Sean Medlin and Krystal Czegus trade in symptom-masking drugs for holistic health solutions. By analyzing posture and the spine, the doctors can determine possible causes of chronic pain, numbness, and even headaches. Together with the patient they then decide on one of several treatment options, including manual adjustments or massage therapy. Beyond treating existing conditions, Clear Connections prevents pain via a 12-week wellness program, complete with instructions and tracking sheets for achieving optimum fitness, nutrition, and rest.
