At Lake County Physical Medicine, Dr. Justin Atkinson and his spine-aligning staff specialize in personalized care with an emphasis on inspiring long-term wellness through holistic healing methods. This medically integrated wellness center uses a team of doctors, chiropractors, and rehab therapists to target a wide range of issues. Sore joints surrender range-limiting pain pockets to a number of time-tested chiropractic methods, from back-to-basics manual adjustments that adjust misaligned vertebrae back into place, to trigger-point therapy to alleviate muscle tension, to all-natural solutions to fight nerve damage, and diagnostic motion palpation to heavy-metal therapy, wherein clients recline on subwoofers blasting Black Sabbath.
Traction rehabilitation shepherds compacted spines to pain-relieving protraction, a treatment that may be augmented by customized exercise routines designed to fortify spinal columns against future injuries. Clients seeking to drop extra weight can opt for a custom weight loss plan, designed by nutritionists and weight loss experts, which may use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients torch calories. The healing hands of Dr. Atkinson's massage therapists alternate between Swedish and deep-tissue techniques that may also incorporate trigger-point therapy and myofascial-release methods.
Envious Tanning Salon & Spa is more like a luxurious day spa than a traditional tanning studio. While it does offer classic beds and spray tanning, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Guests might have their teeth whitened and muscles massaged in one visit. Or, they might try to tone muscles on a vibrating FIT Machine or via infrared heat. This is because the spa has harnessed several forms of cutting-edge technology, which allows clients to customize their beautifying experiences in private beds and chambers.
From the sunlight filtering through the window to the highlights radiating from newly styled dos, the interior of Karma Salon & Spa is filled with the brightness that only beauty brings. There, a team of stylists trained in systems by Redken and Pureology beautify hair with ammonia-free color and the Coppola Keratin System. Staffers also rejuvenate skin with Dermalogica facials, resurface faces with exfoliating Jessner peels, and ease muscles with a relaxing hot stone massage.
Although the retro cutting chairs and eclectic, recycled furnishings between its exposed-brick walls exude a vintage vibe, Alwin Anthony Salon maintains a modern edge, thanks to owner Sara Bott. Thestaff uses only the latest coloring, manicure, and body-waxing techniques and high-end products from Onesta and LuLu Blossom?decisions that helped earn the shop the Reader's Choice for Best Hair Salon 2012 award from the Daily Herald.
While Sara is out on the floor educating stylists and clients about organic Surface Hair Health Art products, staff can be found at the vintage manicure station expertly filing, buffing, and painting nails with a rainbow of CND and OPI polishes. The team?s eco-consciousness reaches beyond recycled furniture to encompass a petite menu of organic and vegan services ranging from coconut oil-based Framesi hair colors to vegan mani-pedis using SPArituals polishes freshly plucked from their homegrown nail-polish tree.
