Ixchel Muhlberger has at least two ways to treat each patient who walks into Mayan Moon Healing. First, the licensed massage therapist can use soothing massage strokes to increase circulation and ease muscle tension, not to mention relieve pain and even improve athletic performance. But for problems that massage can't help, she can call upon her background in Oriental medicine to provide acupuncture treatments, which improve energy flow and help promote the body's self-healing properties. Taking these two talents together, she can customize her treatments to address a wide range of problems, from anxiety and depression to chronic pain, migraines, and sleep disturbances. Though her massages and acupuncture treatments can help clients deal with all these issues, Ixchel specializes in orthopedic injuries, women's health, and pain management.
Technically speaking, an alloy consists of two types of metal, blended together to create a stronger metal. At Alloy Physical Care, Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Mozdzien applies that concept in the healthcare sphere, blending Eastern and Western therapy modalities to form stronger, more versatile treatment plans. He draws on more than a decade of clinical experience as he combats aches and pains with a mix of acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and massage, instead of clothes woven from band-aids.
Marengo Ridge Golf Club, which began as a modest nine-hole course, endured a 25-year gap before taking full advantage of the surrounding landscape's diverse terrain and expanding into a sprawling 18-hole course. Course architect William James Spear broke ground on the front nine in 1963, designating a large, renovated cow barn as the first clubhouse and cleaving nine holes through densely wooded hills. This layout proved sufficient until a late ‘80s spike in the local caddy population—and business boom—made the addition of a back nine desirable. Construction began in 1988 and, two years later, a new nine-hole track opened for play, presenting golfers with a profound shift in scenery, as this layout was built on an expanse of open farmland. The old clubhouse lasted for three more years, but the awkward location and argyle-wearing cattle called for the construction of a new clubhouse to match the new 18-hole golf club.
Today, golfers enjoy the diverse layout of the 18-hole course from the first hole, the longest par 4 on the course, to the last, a par 5 severe dogleg right. Water enters play on nine holes, including on the first six, creating the potential for an extending water break for thirsty golf carts.
Course at a Glance:
18-hole, par 72 course Total length of 6,654 yards from the back tees Course rating of 72.5 from the back tees Course slope of 129 from the back tees Four sets of tees per hole Scorecard

Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
