Dr. Aimee and Associates help patients bolster both their minds and their bodies. The team of physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, and life coaches pools their experience to help their clients battle whatever difficulties they face, no matter their age. They can meet with clients in need of parental counseling, help young adults achieve success through life coaching, or soothe smokers' nicotine cravings through hypnotherapy. The center's board-certified physicians can also boost clients' outward appearances with Botox and Juvederm treatments, or assess students' physical health to ensure their eligibility for school football tryouts and alligator-wrestling meets.
Tension and worry creep through the body, elbowing into sleep, pinching at joints, and generally making life unpleasant. As harbingers of that larger monster, stress, they are formidable foes?but they prove no match for the staff of The Chicago Stress Relief Center, Inc. Led by founder Dr. Howard K. Weissman, the team develops personalized plans to help clients to manage mental and physical ailments. Concerns can be washed away with water and heat during flotation-tank and infrared-sauna sessions that afford clients solitary peace and quiet. Further aid takes the form of massage and art therapy, yoga sessions, and unlimited rolls of bubble wrap ready to be popped.
Sometimes all it takes is a conversation to spur someone into action. Dr. Wanda J. Evans-Brewer has those conversations with her clients. She talks through their ambitions and fears to help her clients overcome writers block or fatigue to complete academic or general life endeavors.

When the wellness experts at Renuil noticed that the common health concerns of stress, poor diet, and toxin exposure were exacerbated by life in the city, they created an entirely new wellness program devoted to urbanites. The result was Urban Renuil, which centers its efforts on purging toxins from the body while boosting nutrition with antioxidants and superfoods. The juices, for their part, eschew preservatives and incorporate solely organic fruits and vegetables, often from local farmers. When clients drink the juices as part of their personalized meal plan, the cleanse provides a complete nutrient profile to keep bodies going strong and vitamin tablets forming picket lines.
