As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. James B. Kahl enhances his patients' features with artfully performed medical procedures. He brings decades of experience to every lid he lifts and every tummy he tucks and is a founding member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
When organizing exercise regimens for his clients, personal trainer Matt Kasee draws inspiration from several periods of his life: the time he spent studying anatomy in graduate school, his process of becoming certified by the NSCA and ACSM, and of course, his trips to Disney World. Matt sees the theme park as an exemplary model of thorough planning and originality, which are concepts he strives to incorporate in his fitness programs. Just as each Disney attraction is hyperconscious of its target audience, his routines are customized to each person and their goals. He also tries to emulate the park's knack for mixing entertainment with education—his workouts prioritize fun and variety as motivational tools rather than intimidation or the threat of playing "It's a Small World" on a loop.
Matt leads both private and semiprivate training sessions with specific milestones in mind. Whether his clients want to lose weight, bulk up, or enhance their athletic performance, his methods adjust to suit their respective starting points and goals. He gives guests the competitive edge with movement analyses, nutrition tips, and gym guidance, and he even encourages patrons with online coaching.
Everybody’s Health began in 1998 as Western Row Chiropractic and kept the moniker until 2004. It was then that owner Doctor of Chiropractic David Berring decided to expand it to a full-service wellness center that combined the best of traditional and alternative therapies, and catered to clients of all ages. Equipped with eight chiropractors, multiple licensed massage therapists, a reiki master, and hypnotherapist, the center’s four locations continue to straighten spines and alleviate pain through quality chiropractic care, but can now extend their healing prowess to encompass everything from tension-reliving reflexology to exercise programs that focus on common problem areas such as the abs or elbows. The staff can also work to help patients improve their overall health by creating custom weight-loss strategies, and may recommend hypnosis as a way to heal personal problems or train the brain to remember to take its vitamins whenever the doorbell rings.
A green office, Everybody’s Health is prides itself on being paperless, relying instead on the use of technology to collect patient information and glazed donuts to take the place of office sticky notes.
During Dr. Peter McKenna's ascent from an undergraduate at Stanford University to an esteemed member of Cincinnati Magazine's roster of Top Docs, the board-certified surgeon racked up a degree from the Cincinnati College of Medicine, honed his craft in numerous residencies, and shared his expertise in the pages of medical journals and books. From inside the Cincinnati Institute of Plastic Surgery, the doctor doles out cosmetic enhancements to clients' breasts, bodies, and faces, evoking youth in clients' appearances so that they don't have to suggest their age by throwing tantrums in toy stores. Since Dr. McKenna has volunteered his time on medical outreach missions to fix cleft lips and palates in Brazil and has made monetary and medical contributions to numerous charities, his practice has improved the lives of people from all over the world.
When his painful plantar fasciitis made surgery an almost certain necessity, Doctor of Chiropractic Carl Rafey sought help from a chiropractor. To his surprise, he was able to find relief without an invasive procedure, a twist of fate that propelled him into the doctorate program at Logan College of Chiropractic. Doctor of Chiropractic AJ Evans had a similar experience, which brought them together at Rafey Chiropractic.
Now, the doctors soothe muscles and work to improve general health with technology and a mastery of chiropractic techniques. After they examine clients' spines and test clients’ ability to turn, bend, and touch their toes without reciting nursery rhymes, they nudge vertebrae into place and offer helpful tips about nutrition and exercise. Massage therapists also aid guests with relaxation and therapeutic techniques.
