Dr. Gary Meek joins a team of physicians and a trained staff at Meek Chiropractic to analyze and realign vertebrae of all shapes and sizes. Meek brings an expertise in pregnancy needs, care for athletes, and pediatrics to the table, helping the group bolster the extensive experience that includes treating minor leaguers from the Springfield Cardinals baseball team and athletes from various colleges.
With that experience, they've built up a wide range of treatment plans and methodologies to help realign patients. Depending on your needs, they can administer acupuncture treatments, perform nutritional counseling, and give instruction in corrective exercises, which reinforce the effects of chiropractic care and train you not to sleep on park benches. Their 10,000-square-foot facility is equipped with private exam rooms and a children’s playroom.
EveryBody Pilates’s owner Heather Crosby had a hard time feeling like herself after a traumatic car wreck in 1995; that is, until she discovered Pilates. The core-strengthening workouts so enriched and restored her life that she became a certified instructor to share it with others. At her studio, she and her staff provide group lessons on mats and reformers, as well as private and partner classes. They’ve also added barre workouts, TRX suspension training, and Jazzercise to their repertoire.
Though the instructors and music selections rotate at My Hot Yoga, guests can bank on a steady temperature of 105 degrees Fahrenheit. This warmth is less cloying than it is liberating, loosening muscles so that students can ease into more pronounced poses during class. It also encourages a cleansing sweat, clears the mind, and boosts heart rates, providing a more focused substitute for traditional cardio workouts such as running or blinking very fast. Sessions range from the Vinyasa flow sequences of Hot 60 to the long holds of Deep Stretch, and they’re suited for all ages and fitness levels. This flexibility is what fuels the staff's overarching mission: to turn a hobby into a personalized lifestyle choice. Instructors further promote a comfortable, custom atmosphere by modifying poses and even allowing guests to submit song requests.
