Massage therapist Sue Ventura believes that no massage clinic should feel like a revolving-door operation. That's why her goal is to build a history with clients, thereby ensuring maximum relaxation and custom therapy during follow-up sessions at her private practice. Sue's massage repertoire is diverse, ranging from pregnancy therapy and Swedish strokes to deep-tissue techniques for relieving lower-layer aches.
The experienced staff members of Advanced Healthcare Center combine their individual talents with a holistic approach to medicine to give patients a long-term alternative to medications and surgery. Dr. Susie Warden, director, and her staff bolster backbones and overall health through spinal exams, adjustments, and inspirational sports montages. Resident massage therapists provide additional torso restoration with various massage techniques customized following chiropractic exams, and physical therapists strengthen muscular health through prescribed exercise regimens. The office's in-house medical physicians provide insight into metabolic cases, nutritional counselors construct dietary plans to nurture the body, and acupuncturists realign energy flows and destroy nearby balloons.
Though the licensed practitioners at Acupuncture INC—Brian Musial and Tom Betts—came to acupuncture from different backgrounds, both discovered a passion for the technique after experiencing its results first-hand. Tom, for one, witnessed the relief it offered his clients while working as a personal trainer, and Brian recognized its potential while recovering from a sports injury that wouldn't respond to traditional medicine or inspirational speeches from his coach. Today, the pair strive to provide the same relief to clients that they were able to enjoy, but for a much wider array of afflictions—from back pain and headaches to insomnia and allergies.
After a brief consultation, the acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles placed at key points on the body's energy pathways, thereby dislodging blockages of energy that might be preventing healing. While needles are central to each acupuncture treatment, sessions may be accompanied by other modalities such as cupping, magnets, or heat therapy.
Dr. Tony Maghsoudi saw plenty of strained backs and sore muscles as the chiropractor for the Polish Soccer League. Now, at the Naperville Rehab Clinic, he continues to specialize in treating sports injuries, though he also gets to trot out his training in acupuncture. He and his staff even offer lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling so clients know which foods contain important vitamins and which are just jars of rubber cement. It's all part of the center's prevention-based philosophy, which emphasizes treatments that stop injuries and pain before they even occur.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
