The physicians and aesthetic staff all possess warm, friendly demeanors, ensuring that clients feel comfortable as they undergo one of the center's many beautifying treatments. Continually looking for new ways to rejuvenate exteriors, the aestheticians have developed a facial that harnesses the flavonoids and resveratrol in chocolate to neutralize free radicals that may have waged a microscopic poke war on skin. The spa's mission statement, etched into tan-hued walls, promises "a soothing, comfortable experience" during all services, such as Thai massage and Jane Iredale–makeup applications. Several services take a more scientific approach, employing lasers to remove spider veins, hairs, and cellulite.
Though Dr. Sathish Narayanappa Babu trekked across Asia, Europe, and the United States to practice as a physician and cardiothoracic surgeon, he always took notice of how different cultures define beauty. Now, as the medical director and founder of Simply Serenity Medi Spa & Hair Salon, Dr. Narayanappa, alongside a team of trained technicians, beautifies clients with his worldly knowledge of aesthetic treatments. Along with classic salon and spa services, the Orland Park haven offers a selection of laser treatments, body-contouring devices, and weight-loss systems, which aid the staff as they eliminate body hair and smooth cellulite.
Within SoderWorld Healing Arts Center’s A-frame log cabin, wellness professionals nurture body, mind, and spirit. Massage therapists tucked inside the 5,500-square-foot lodge or its detached gazebo heal muscle aches as patrons doze to the distant symphony of an outdoor waterfall. Therapists practice traditional, uncommon, and Asian bodywork treatments, incorporating tools such as heated lava shells and stones. Meanwhile, yoga instructors lead pose sequences and edify students in the art of teaching. A 2.5-acre walking path winds around the facility, delivering patrons to a meditation garden where they can search for inner peace or metal scraps.

After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
Trained hands are pretty good at soothing overworked muscles, but at Dolce Vita Day Spa, they have some extra help. During Vichy hydrotherapy treatments, high-pressure streams of water invigorate the entire body as guests relax on a table, a more comfortable alternative to napping at a picnic on a cloudy day. It's typically the finishing touch on spa days that might include more-traditional massages, facials with Arbonne products, and special treatments for the hands and feet. Plant-inspired art, an indoor "garden" area, and an easy-to-reach location in downtown LaGrange make a trip to Dolce Vita relaxing from arrival on.
