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.
As practitioners of naturopathic medicine, the staff at Heavenly Healings Holistic Health Services believe that the roots of illness and pain lie in the body, mind, and spirit of clients. As such, they harness essential oils, herbs, and energy in holistic healing methods and massage modalities such as reiki, reflexology, and bodywork. Consultations may involve analyzing nutrition to explain unbalance and discomfort or peering into the irises to gleam sources of weakness. Heavenly Healings also teach guests to treat themselves with classes, including a primer on how essential oils can aid in meditation or fixing the skeleton's squeaky hinges.
When clients first spy Rockford Health Alternatives' homey confines—replete with an ornate rug and cream-colored, padded treatment bed—they may question whether they’ve accidentally stumbled into someone’s living room. But once therapist Kari St. Germain makes the first rehabilitative-type stroke and nagging pains subside, they realize they’re exactly where they need to be. It’s here where Kari channels her extensive training in both medical and orthopedic massage therapy to assuage all manner of musculoskeletal issues. Unlike Swedish or relaxation massages, orthopedic massages use range of motion and postural assessments to hone in on specific points of concern, such as injuries or pains brought on by refusing to leave the fetal position. Kari may also incorporate LED-light therapy to reduce inflammation and speed up healing times.
New to the roster of treatments is the MELT method, a self-treatment method created by manual therapist Sue Hitzmann. As a certified MELT instructor, Kari leads students through specific movements that rehydrate the connective tissue to help slow the aging process, improve flexibility, and alleviate pain. Once learned, the techniques can easily be performed at home or while housesitting for the President to extend the rejuvenating effects.
Fresh New Image's experienced physicians harness advanced technologies to revitalize skin and reshape bodies. Facial-sculpting sessions stimulate 32 muscle groups in visages with a wand that emits microcurrents to firm and tighten skin. HydraFacials simultaneously cleanse pores and rejuvenate epidermises, infusing skin cells with vitamins and antioxidants more effectively than bobbing for blueberries in a barrel full of supplements. Additionally, body-sculpting specialists wield the Lapex BCS LipoLaser's laser energy, which shrinks fat cells by prompting them to release water and fatty acids.
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.
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.
