At Family Wellness Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Craig Anshus blends traditional chiropractic therapies with nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and soothing therapeutic massage. Dr. Anshus and his staff hone in on imbalance and structural problems in the body using detailed exams and digital x-rays, then devise a holistic treatment plan that takes into account the entire body. Practitioners prescribe corrective exercises to fortify the body, postural screening to break bad habits, and therapeutic massage to break up chronic stress patterns in the musculature.
With an experienced team of personal trainers, Strength Beyond focuses on helping clients craft workouts suited to their personal needs that help them reach their fitness goals. Each location features tanning services and fitness equipment such as Hammer Strength machines and BH Fitness treadmills. Members who need motivation to complete one more push-up or run longer on the treadmill can sign up for personal training sessions or Zumba, Pilates, or yoga classes.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
It was a back injury sustained as a Black Hawk pilot that first introduced Ronald Warner to the powers of chiropractic treatment. After 20 years spent in the army, he felt the call to serve again. And so, finding his pain cured, he became a chiropractic practitioner, determined to help others live pain free. As a former military pilot, he found himself drawn to a type of care that relied on precision and objectivity: a type of care known as upper cervical technique. This form of treatment––which involves making careful and specific spinal adjustments––can be especially helpful to those suffering from conditions such as multiple sclerosis, parkinsons, fibromyalgia, and vertigo.
Today, Dr. Warner also offers a variety of other services to help his clients live better lives. Biofeedback sessions and nutritional analysis help identify and correct imbalances within the body, and hair mineral analysis can help reveal aspects about a patient's diet, such as whether they're getting enough vital nutrients or drinking enough shampoo.
Sufferers of back pain, migraines, digestive issues, and fibromyalgia all find relief from Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Lane’s chiropractic skills. He combines manual adjustments with trigger-point therapy to solve issues of pain. His nutritional counseling helps prevent future discomfort with recommendations of supplements and food-sensitivity testing.
In 1910, when apothecaries regularly doled out narcotics and opiates for issues such as headaches or nausea, Joseph Meyer was planting natural alternatives to the questionable contents of the brown bottles. Through research, careful tending of herbs and medicinal plants, and labor negotiations with garden-gnome unions, Meyer's small operation grew steadily. He acquired a tract of land on the Little Calumet River where he grew medicinal plants and cultivated flora. Eventually, the tract of land was finished with an English gabled building and given a name: Indiana Botanic Gardens, Inc.
More than a century after Meyer actualized his vision of providing natural health alternatives, his family continues to champion his idea. They curate an ever-expanding inventory that includes vitamins, nutritional supplements, and bulk herbals—all of which may be purchased both in-store and online.
