When asked what factors influenced their career choice, not many people would answer, "The location of my college apartment." But that?s exactly what Dr. Eric Smith did. He lived next door to a chiropractor's office during his freshman year, and from his desk, Smith could see patients?including entire families?coming and going from the adjacent building. He noticed that they appeared to be in pain when then walked in, and seemed to have more pep in their step as they left. Smith got a chance to see for himself what all the fuss was about after sustaining a serious neck and back injury. In extreme pain, he headed next door for treatment, eventually making a remarkable recovery. Smith even began working for the chiropractor part time, learning more about chiropractic care and developing a passion for helping others. After earning his chiropractic degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic's west campus, Dr. Smith began practicing, allowing people in pain to experience the same healing he had felt. That was 25 years ago. Today, at Smith Chiropractic, Dr. Smith alleviates discomfort and illness with a variety of techniques, including spinal-decompression therapy and gentle adjustments with the instrument-based Activator Methods. Dr. Smith also donates his time to local businesses and events by offering free wellness workshops on topics such as weight loss, stress, and ergonomics in the workplace.

Natural healing therapies can be an healthy alternative to aggressive medicines and unnecessary surgery, which is the care practiced and embraced by the Source for Wellness staff. This spa-like, integrated health center offers chiropractic services as well as group fitness classes, together helping clients look and feel their best. Chiropractic neck and back adjustments may be the ticket to relieving migraines or chronic pain, and massages and gentle acupuncture treatments help soothe the body and replace the needles you've naturally shed over time. Above all, the experienced practitioners treat each person as a whole, working to get to the root of health problems instead of simply treating the symptoms.

The Shalomtouch therapist harnesses a focused slate of healing services to balance bodies and refine skin. The spa's three flavors of massage soothe varying levels of tension, melting away everyday stress by merging lighter strokes with specialized aromatherapy and treating more vexing pain with deep, concentrated pressure. By becoming attuned to the body's tight spots, tender areas, and construction-zone detours, the therapist achieves lasting, customized relief. Facial services cleanse and purify pores with the power of organic ingredients, and deft hands smooth bikini areas with Brazilian-waxing sessions for men and women.

During its 20 years in business, Meilin Salon & Spa has drawn its share of loyal clients, including one who travels from out of town just for a session in stylist/owner Amy?s chair. Chalk these allegiances up to the artistic stylists, who forego cookie-cutter services for customized treatments that take into account each client?s personal style and favorite shampoo flavor. Then there?s the atmosphere?saffron-colored walls evoke feelings of escape that are only elevated by the smell of organic oils, teas, candles, and all-natural fragrances. And, of course, there are the treatments themselves; haircuts, coloring services, and relaxing scalp massages incorporate all-natural hair care products, while relaxing massages, full body masques, mani-pedis, and facials leave clients feeling pampered from head to toe.
