More than 10 years ago, Transformation Bodywork owner Kathleen Fanning eschewed her corporate career for a more wholesome, fulfilling path. After earning her massage therapist certification in 2004, she traveled to an Indian orphanage where provided massage therapy to children with polio. She now works with two other licensed massage therapists at Transformation Bodywork, where they strive to impart tranquility on clientele through a variety of Eastern healing practices. Along with massage therapy services that range from hot stone to cranio-sacral, Transformation Bodywork also offers reflexology, health counseling, and personal training. Each service adopts a holistic approach, and the health counseling sessions cover all aspects of nourishment, including relationships and physical activity. Personal trainers travel to home gyms and health clubs to work within client schedules. Kathleen also shares deeksha—a spiritual practice through which she aims to impart clear mindedness, inner tranquility, and joyfulness to her clients, among other benefits.
Licensed doctors Tim Erickson, Lori Portnoy, and Eric Eickhorst eschew needle-based acupuncture, instead easing myriad ailments with gentle electrical stimulation, fingertip pressure, and metallic balls. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment itinerary, patients receive full spine x-rays and an exam. Next, a brief relief treatment stretches spines to help reduce muscle spasms and aches while preparing patients for International Crabwalk to Work Day. The acupuncture treatment usually lasts fewer than two minutes and helps to attack causes of corporeal discomfort, such as ulcers, abnormal blood pressure, and headaches.
Simply Wellness's doctors and aestheticians revivify red and itchy skin with one-hour Dermalogica UltraCalming facials. Treatments begin with a coat of cleansing gel, which soothes itchiness while sweeping away excess skin debris. A hydrating mist follows to reduce redness caused by wearing sandpaper ski masks, and a colloidal oatmeal-enriched relief mask aims to provide relief from inflammation and rosacea. Dermalogica's super-concentrated barrier serum then repairs broken-down dermal defenses, preventing future infiltrations of microbes, allergens, and chemicals. Finally, an anhydrous moisturizer hydrates epidermises to render skin more silky smooth than a smoking jacket made out of velveteen rabbits.
As a former athlete and current player of golf, soccer, and softball, Dynamic Sports Fitness & Chiropractic’s Adam Macek, Doctor of Chiropractic, is no stranger to the toll that sports take on the body. He decided to become a chiropractor, using techniques such as spine adjustment and functional rehabilitation, to battle that toll's effects and to help his patients get back to doing the activities that they love, instead of sitting on the sidelines, morosely eating dandelions.
Dr. Macek is certified in a number of ameliorative arts that reduce pain and muscle tension, including acupuncture and Kinesio Taping, as well as in golf fitness instruction, with which he uses slow-motion video and computer software to diagnose swing-related problems, such as overusing the upper body on the downswing and not getting enough arch support from bunny slippers. He utilizes four private treatment rooms, a rehabilitation room, and an x-ray suite to introduce bodies to electric-stimulation, ultrasound, and cryotherapy treatments.
