Since 1995, the doctors at Oak Creek Relief and Wellness have preferred to bypass drugs and surgery with non-invasive techniques that aid in weight loss, along with ailment-fighting chiropractic care, fitness training, and nutritional advice. Lipo Light helps slim and tone physiques through lipolysis—the breaking down and release of fatty acids from targeted areas of the body.
The clinic's chiropractic approach encompasses spinal and nonspinal adjustments, both of which improve clients’ bodily alignment and overall health. Techniques include spinal decompression therapy, cold laser therapy, exercise rehabilitation, and massage therapy. The doctors of chiropractic also correct subluxations and relieve the pain associated with scoliosis, shoulder pain, sciatica, or curly muscles. Their wellness center fortifies the whole body with fitness programs and suggested stretches.
Being a health-conscious foodie can be a challenge, because it’s not always easy to determine the history of how and where food is produced. The owners of Armstrong Apples Orchard and Winery have created such a narrative for their clients, growing fruit deeply rooted in their commitments to community and homegrown produce.
Sixteen years ago, they planted their first apple orchard, calling on friends and neighbors aged 8 to 80 for help. Since then, the farm has expanded and now grows 14 varieties of apples, peaches, pears, and grapes, which they serve fresh, baked into pies and turnovers, and pressed into their award-winning wine. Of these libations, apple wine is the owners' specialty, and it ranges from the very dry—best paired with meat—to the cinnamon sweet—best paired with Halloween costumes.
In addition to fresh fruit, baked goods, and adult beverages, the farm boasts entertainment for kids and adults alike, including a playscape and a zorb ball, which is a 12-foot high hamster-ball-like contraption that guests climb inside to travel across an open 5-acre field.
Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates made a deep impression on modern medicine—he inspired the oath that all physicians swear to before offering their talents to the world. Naturopathic doctor Renee Waters believes that "do no harm" is one of the most important precepts that Hippocrates ever penned. Since 1984, she has helped patients improve their health without introducing them to potentially harmful artificial drugs or invasive procedures, such as surgery or food-pyramid tattoos. Instead, she employs natural techniques, including reflexology and herbal medicine, to improve the function of major organs and leaves patients feeling cleansed and energized with detoxifying treatments. One of her most popular treatments is the Ultimate Healing Massage, which incorporates a scalp massage, lymph drainage, and acupressure work. Her naturopathic scope also includes iridology sessions, where she analyzes markings on patients' irises to evaluate physical and psychological health.
Steve Shapson has always taken a do-it-yourself approach to his food, having cultivated wild mushrooms and started his own home-brewing store. One day, a customer entered this brewing facility in search of a thermometer, and Steve quickly discovered the man had something other than brewing in mind. As the customer explained his newfound passion for amateur cheese making, Steve enthusiastically dove into the concept, inviting the fellow foodie to his store to help him discover the process. Since then, he's become The Cheesemaker, striving to pass on hard-earned knowledge that he maintains can't be found in conventional cheese-making guidebooks.
Steve teaches techniques for making hard and soft cheeses, butter, yogurt, and kefir in onsite workshops that last either just a few hours or a full weekend. During hands-on workshops, he explains both proper and improper techniques, often citing mistakes he's made in the past as examples and telling cautionary tales about arranging rival cheeses next to each other on a serving platter. To supply his workshops and fill out his take-home cheese-making kits, Steve gathers a range of cultures and inoculants necessary for developing different cheeses, as well as basic-to-advanced gear such as curd knives, strainers, and warming vats.
Snugly situated on a historic 1881 farm once known as the Schwabenlander Homestead, Mulberry Lane Farm takes its name from an ancient mulberry tree that once served as a favorite playplace for the Schwabenlander children. In those days, the 100-year-old tree was so esteemed that the children were not allowed to climb it while wearing shoes. Because of this rule, it wasn’t uncommon to find Lawrence, Harry, Norbert, and their nine other brothers and sisters swinging from its boughs, their shoes respectfully lined around its base.
Today, children still play in the shadow of that mulberry tree thanks to the founders of Green Meadows Farm, the Keyes family. Close friends of the last of the Schwabenlander boys, the Keyes adopted the farmstead and its original brick farmhouse into their petting farm empire in 2005 but gave it its own identity to honor the legacy of the original owners. Guided tours lead groups around the farm on foot and by hayride, where kids and adults are encouraged to interact and swap salad recipes with the goats, chickens, sheep, and rabbits that call the farm home. Along the way, visitors can learn how to milk cows and ride ponies or practice catching a chicken, then swing by the barn to snuggle kittens and Otis, the 900-pound boar. Before departing, visitors each receive a free souvenir in the spring and summer, and those who come in the fall have the chance to pick their own pumpkins from the 6-acre pumpkin patch.
