Kimberly Chick honed her healing touch at Ohio College of Massotherapy. Now as Sola Salon's only licensed massage therapist, Kim can perform aromatherapy or deep-tissue bodywork in a private room, or deploy the client's home for one of her signature massage parties.
At ProActive Health & Wellness, a skilled staff revitalizes worn-down or overstressed bodies through chiropractic care, nutritional guidance, and massage therapy. The expert hands and trained eye of a licensed therapist perform customized massages and chiropractic exams, helping to identify sources of discomfort and pinpointing your coccyx’s reading comprehension level.
Given a choice between surgery and chiropractic adjustments after sustaining a work-related injury, Dr. Anthony Biondillo chose adjustments. Inspired by the treatments’ success, he turned his personal experience into a professional pursuit of chiropractic knowledge by spending six years studying the human body and achieving his doctorate. Now he treats patients' necks, backs, and limbs with the same noninvasive techniques that saved him from the operating room. He and his team specialize in alleviating pain by manipulating bones and soft tissue. These techniques—such as adjustment, muscle stimulation, and massage—are designed to trigger the body's self-healing mechanism, thereby avoiding pumping patients full of drugs.
Tell us about your business.
[It’s] a one-stop-shop for the mind, body and soul. We provide a unique approach to healing. Many of our customers travel from all over Ohio for our outstanding services and to receive attention from our extremely compassionate staff.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have always been a natural healer from as early as my childhood. It wasn't until I had started taking prerequisites in college that I realized what my true calling was.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Hypnotic massage. It is a unique service that integrates a therapeutic massage with our heart-centered hypnotherapy. Personally, I combine the massage and the hypnosis in the same session . . . another option is to have the therapeutic massage before the hypnosis session. You could also have our hypnotherapist sit in the room with you during your massage treatment and engage you in the hypnotherapy process. We intentionally pair these two services together to assure ultimate healing results that will be imprinted deeply within your cellular tissue and deeper into the subconscious mind to assure the results stick.
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We have complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in our waiting-room area. We provide cold water after massage sessions to flush out toxins. We also have a wide range of reading materials as well as cable television in the waiting room.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our one-stop-shop keeps growing. We are in the process of developing our unique yoga studio and café downstairs from our current location with a tentative grand opening for this fall.
Since 2005, Doctor of Chiropractic Jay-P Fite has been intervening in spinal troubles with his tried-and-true methods of chiropractic correction. When treating headaches, neck pain, and lower-back pain—the predominant source of patient complaints and roller-coaster-technician daydreams—Dr. Fite relies on the diversified technique, which requires manual thrusts of troublesome vertebrae to urge them back into place. His Thompson-method adjustments, meanwhile, involve cradling patients on a specialized table comprised of adjustable spinal supports, which afford greater precision and comfort.
Dr. David Edwards and Dr. Sean Lamy co-captain Source Chiropractic and Rehab, skillfully treating the spine and its neighboring musculature—Dr. Edwards even travels with the New Orleans Saints as their go-to sideline aligner. Upon arrival at Source, as a new patient you will be asked to fill out paperwork about your medical history and disconcerting condition, which will be followed by a consultation with one of the doctors. Combining the information gathered during a one-on-one chat about present physical ailments and concerns and the results from standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, and physical examinations (testing your reflexes and mobility), your doctor will begin to determine the best course of treatment.
