Emulating 19th century salt mines in eastern Europe, Advanced Physical Medicine’s halotherapy treatments soothe achy respiratory systems. During the 45-minute aerosol salt-therapy treatments, clients kick back in a softly lit salt cave, which is spackled from floor to ceiling in the healing granules as a generator churns out crushed medical-grade salt no larger than 5 micrometers— officially deemed smaller than a breadbox. Guests lounge in the salt cave, effortlessly inhaling the sodium chloride bits deep into their lungs as the minute pellets float through the tranquil atmosphere’s air.
Salty breaths usher in troops of lung-healing particles to invade mucus house parties, scaring off unwanted goo-guests with high kinetic energy, negative ionization, and stern warnings. As lungs are cleared of bacteria, they may feel relief from inflammation, allergies, and asthma. Depending on the client’s respiratory issues, multiple sessions may be recommended.
Advanced Physical Medicine
The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness. Chiropractic physicians treat injuries and misaligned spines with therapies that include decompression machines, and acupuncture sessions address chronic pain from sciatica or carpal-tunnel symptoms acquired while positioning full-size construction cranes over vending-machine toys. Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.
Both the Chicago and Oak Park locations welcome guests with an abundance of natural light and cheerful green exercise machines. Giving back to the local community is a passion enjoyed by many on the staff, including podiatrist and college-level instructor Dr. Mary Ann Bender, who, along with her students, provides foot care at eight uninsured and homeless clinics in Chicago.
