At Complete Chiropractic & Rehab, Dr. Nick Mendez, D.C., searches for the underlying causes of illness and alleviates spinal pain using traditional chiropractic techniques. He and his staff work to treat a wide range of disorders, ranging from allergies and asthma to sciatica, pinched nerves, and lower-back pain.
Licensed massage therapist John Slipke helps allay aches with neuromuscular therapy, a medical-massage technique that aims to ease muscle pain, bursitis, and injury-related discomfort. At the start of each appointment, Slipke chats with the client to pinpoint probable causes of tenderness, which may include sciatica, plantar fasciitis, or repeatedly watching Old Yeller. He may also identify pain triggers by analyzing the body's posture. Throughout the session, the client shares feedback, noting when pressure alleviates aches and crackling when attached to a guitar amplifier. After the kneading massage, Slipke crafts a custom wellness plan-including a pain-prevention regimen-with the clinic's internist or chiropractor. Robledo Medical & Wellness Center does not offer prenatal massages.
Got a case of Mary Poppins malaise? This $5 Groupon is a spoonful of sugar for the medicine: tickets to Girls vs. Boys ($10 value). The play, a musical by the creative team behind The House Theatre of Chicago's sold-out show The Sparrow, is an extremely loud, fast-paced show about a brother and sister who find themselves thrust into a perilous, modern-day Lord of the Flies. High-stakes relationships turn into all-out war of the sexes. The director says it's like a rock concert, so the best way to experience the sound and fury is with a spot in the pit. This Groupon gets you in standing room and on the ground floor of the action (guaranteed swears, awesome music, violent themes, and partial nudity).
The Akemi Fitness Method studio hosts a mix of alternative workout classes that incorporates a range of movements to tone muscles, improve equilibrium, and enhance endurance. Inspired by the results-oriented Lotte Berk Method, this workout style engages students in core exercises, dance, yoga, and light weight training during a variety of classes. Laura Baginski of Time Out Chicago notes that the Akemi barre class caused her to "walk out feeling taller, leaner," thanks to its combination of ballet barre exercises, Pilates, and free weights. Cardio dance-fusion classes combine elements from ballet, hip-hop, kickboxing, and yoga, adding in cardiovascular exercises to burn fat and light resistance training to sculpt frames until they achieve the angular glisten of a Roman statue. An hour of the arms, abs and booty session firms appendages, six-packs, and seats. With classes held throughout the day, six days a week, Akemi's calendar accommodates students with all types of schedules.
Sono Bella Clinica's medically supervised staff deploys FDA-cleared VelaSmooth treatments that coalesce radio frequencies, infrared light, and gentle vacuuming to smooth puckered epidermises. Invisible waves and rays delve stealthily beneath the skin's surface, catalyzing metabolism within embedded fat cells to leave behind a smoothened façade. Cellulite colonies of the hips, abs, buttocks, arms, calves, neck, and bra line capitulate under the invisible auspices of VelaSmooth technologies. Most patients require six to eight weekly sessions lasting 45- to 60-minutes each to achieve ideally dimpleless skin, and results typically last six to eight weeks after the last session. Because of its non-invasive nature, VelaSmooth treatments incur no recovery time, so clients can immediately return to prior engagements such as a Rockette's body double.
