Doctor of Chiropractic Kim Miller considers herself part of a team. During appointments at Balance Your Life Chiropractic, she works closely with clients to uncover the source of their ailments before devising a treatment plan. Her passion is working with pregnant women and children, and a certification in the Webster technique allows her to gently correct pelvic misalignments to help babies move into ideal positions or graceful arabesques prior to birth. She’s also certified in the Graston technique, in which she uses stainless-steel instruments to break down scar tissue affecting patients’ mobility. Whatever the treatment method, Dr. Miller follows up with patients to ensure their health has improved and their problems have ceased.
Inside Balance Your Life’s newly remodeled office, patients wind their way through an x-ray suite, massage room, and children’s treatment room that boasts bright blue walls and a treatment bed balanced atop a giant, yellow fish. Out in the waiting lounge, a flat-screen TV flashes entertaining programming and x-ray sightings of celebrity spines.
Sheila Laing believes that spa services should support her clients' whole-body health. To bring this belief into fruition, she takes a holistic approach to her aesthetic and massage-therapy services and employs organic or all-natural products. She also enriches her practice with a background in herbology and postgrad education in aesthetics. Each of Ms. Laing's facials is customized in order to take into account changes in weather, stress, diet, or skin cells' favorite death-metal band. Every facial incorporates a cleansing, exfoliation, and mask, but also may include skin polishing or extractions. In a low-lit, off-white room, clients can also stretch out on a cushioned massage table, where their muscles unwind beneath the touch of hot stones and targeted therapy.

As a Zerona-certified laser technician with thousands of treatments under his belt, Terry J. Ward knew many of his clients weren?t satisfied with the results of Zerona. Tapping into cold laser technology developed by NASA, he designed and built the first UltraSlim prototypes, as well as the finished version he uses to slenderize clients. As a local provider of the nationwide technique pioneered by Ward, technicians at UltraSlim Mid Michigan LLC treat clients and back up their work by pledging repeated treatments until customers lose 2 inches.

Now, with more than 10 years of experience, Aja provides clients with her healing touch at Verity Life Massage Therapy. She offers her signature Swedish massages in 60- and 90-minute iterations as well as short chair-massage sessions.
At Delta Chiropractic Center, Doctors of Chiropractic Roost and Dail solve back problems with the help of computerized techniques, which has helped them gain recognition from City Pulse and become the official chiropractic office of Lansing's semipro football team. During the exam and consultation, the doctors determine the best course of healing action and read bones' most telling diary entries. The one-hour massage helps to relieve musculoskeletal pain, encourage circulation, increase range of motion, and bring up the patient's relaxation quotient by 10 points on a scale of one to beach. Delta Chiropractic Center realigns body kinks with a variety of techniques, including the ProAdjuster, for which Dr. Roost is the only Class III-certified ProAdjuster doctor in mid-Michigan. A handheld device connected to a computer, the ProAdjuster gently taps the body to analyze and realign the spine with a combination of current technology and traditional chiropractic adjustment techniques.
