The chiropractors at Care Health Center help keep vertebrae in line so that their patients can enjoy a life free from pain and dysfunction. Doctors of Chiropractic Kurt and Robert Simons facilitate the body's natural ability to heal itself by adjusting the two dozen bones that shield the spinal cord and offering lifestyle counseling. Licensed massage therapist Kristin Becker, meanwhile, provides a complement to their services by soothing achy muscles with a range of modalities. Conditions such as sciatica, fibromyalgia, and ice-cream headaches have been known to dissipate with their healing touch.
Under the watchful eye of Dr. Karri Huber and Sheldon Brown, D.C., the staff of Wisconsin Laser Fat Loss slims away excess fat from the body's hard-to-exercise trouble spots with non-invasive, FDA–approved Lapex BCS LipoLaser technology. Cold-laser light opens fat cells in a way that mimics what happens during exercise, emptying out excess water and fatty acids to shed inches. Paddles target unwanted bulges, patches of cellulite, or areas of inflammation, leaving bodies as slim as a sapling in a corset.
An arm of HealthWorks Wellness Center, Wisconsin Laser Fat Loss adds its high-tech swagger to the center's lengthy list of services. Under the medical direction of Dr. Shane Huber, a team of doctors and physical therapists coddles bodies with chiropractic, injury recovery, neuropathy, pain-management services, and doctor-supervised weight-loss programs.
The aim of the practitioners at Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Center is to better the health of their clients. They use acupuncture and massage therapy to halt muscles spasms, renew energy levels, and heal injuries. And though acupuncture and massage instill a sense of relaxation on their own, the practitioners add to the tranquility with soft music playing in the room or seashells to hold up to your ear.
Badger Health Center’s trained instructors help practitioners find their footing with a healthy schedule of yoga, Zumba, tai chi, and qi-gong ball classes. After checking that they’ve donned tops and bottoms, guests locate their centers at Iyengar yoga classes, which focus the mind with deep breathing and build strength with lengthy poses. Unlike a nougat-filled river, Vinyasa yoga’s low-impact, balance-bolstering poses flow, and Zumba's cardio dance party blitzes stress and calories to the beat of lively Latin rhythms. Slow, meditative tai-chi movements and qi-gong ball exercises aim to tone muscles and balance the chi, an energy thought to course through all living things and talking lava lamps.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Koch, who is also a licensed nutritional counselor and certified wellness practitioner, combines chiropractic techniques with diet advice, supplements, and exercise to help clients get healthy and stay healthy. The doctor eschews rough chiropractic techniques in favor of the Activator Method, gently tapping vertebrae back into place with a hand-held instrument, instead of twisting and cracking the spine or whacking it with a mallet. Because this technique is so gradual, it can help ease nerve irritation, relax tight muscles, and relieve headaches. To bolster its effectiveness and address any underlying muscle tensions, the doctor combines the Activator Method with pressure-point massage.
