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.

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.
Alicia Miller grew up in a family that relied on conventional Western medicine to treat its ills. Imagine her surprise when she started her training as a massage therapist and discovered the world of naturopathic medicine. The pharmaceutical-free siren song of this field called to her so strongly that she went on to graduate from one of the few accredited naturopathic medical schools in the country and take ownership of Natural Care Clinic in Naperville. Here, she helps clients embrace better nutrition and root out the causes of chronic conditions with drug-free treatments and lifestyle changes. Her colleagues, David Miller and Gosia Fogut-Masur, offer therapeutic massage services that leave muscles relaxed and stress levels lower than a basement in Death Valley.
Whether visitors need to ease pain, heal an aliment, or simply keep their bodies relaxed and working, chances are that Vitality Health Center will have their solution. The center, which was named a runner up in Naperville's 2013 list of its best clinics, employs a diverse and friendly staff that runs the gamut from spine specialists and massage therapists to acupuncturists and fitness instructors, each of whom strives to keep their clients healthy and pain-free through caring, personalized treatments. Those nursing muscular injuries can benefit from services such as physiotherapy and corrective exercises, whereas those looking to keep themselves healthy and fit can attend a fitness class, get nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice, or channel their inner chrysalis in one of the center's slimming body wraps, which are applied in a private room with video streaming capabilities.
The experienced staff members of Advanced Healthcare Center combine their individual talents with a holistic approach to medicine to give patients a long-term alternative to medications and surgery. Dr. Susie Warden, director, and her staff bolster backbones and overall health through spinal exams, adjustments, and inspirational sports montages. Resident massage therapists provide additional torso restoration with various massage techniques customized following chiropractic exams, and physical therapists strengthen muscular health through prescribed exercise regimens. The office's in-house medical physicians provide insight into metabolic cases, nutritional counselors construct dietary plans to nurture the body, and acupuncturists realign energy flows and destroy nearby balloons.
