Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
Anu Buzruk learned Hatha yoga at the Sree Swamy Vivekananda Centre of Teacher Education in India, taught the style in India for six years, and then moved to Chicago and completed Lotus Yoga Center’s 200-hour training course. Yet, even with all of her training, she works to continually improve her teaching at Yoganubhav Studio by regularly scheduling feedback sessions with her students and their often neglected mats. Since starting her career, she has taught Hatha yoga to more than 400 students, and she employs their feedback to tailor her classes to their needs. Through this personalization of her classes, many students have reported her Hatha yoga classes have helped to increase their flexibility and alleviate issues such as anxiety, digestive difficulty, and menstrual disorders.
The staff at Healthy Foot Spa focuses on the age-old method of reflexology, a form of massage that applies pressure to specified areas of the feet believed to trigger self-healing mechanisms in the rest of the body. Rows of plush spa chairs and massage beds sprawl behind floral shoji screens in earth-toned rooms, as practitioners work the feet—as well as the hands and back—to improve mental and physical health and reduce stress caused by tough jobs such as proofreading eye-exam charts.
Dr. Jeffrey Garofalo realigns the spines of his patients ranging from newborn to 90, but he doesn’t stop there. His adjustments also right wronged arms, shoulders, wrists, knees, and feet. When not in the office adjusting his patients, Dr. Garofalo teaches others about the benefits of chiropractic care during seminars and sumo matches.
Achieving optimal health requires a balanced, holistic approach that treats the body as a whole and doesn't simply address symptoms as they appear. At Advanced Wellness Center, Doctor of Chiropractic Emmy Wang and her staff use a combination of chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and other noninvasive treatment modalities to help clients live healthy, pain-free lives.
Dr. Wang's hands-on chiropractic adjustments locate misaligned vertebrae along the spinal column, easing them back into place, which allows the body's central nervous system to function at full capacity and begin naturally healing the underlying conditions that can cause chronic pains. For a more technologically based approach, the center's low-level laser therapy can increase circulation, accelerate cell growth, and reduce swelling in a target area, which can alleviate the discomfort caused by everything from carpal tunnel syndrome to arthritis.
These options can help restore the body to optimal health; however, Advanced Wellness Center also uses physiotherapy to get clients' bodies in even better shape. Whole-body-vibration sessions can increase muscle tone and build bone density, and the center's conditioning training develops core strength. Medically supervised weight-loss programs provide long-term guidance for clients seeking to become more fit. Additionally, the center offers Lipo-Light therapy, which uses LED light energy to help contour troublesome areas without invasive surgeries.
