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 350 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.

As a former athlete and current player of golf, soccer, and softball, Dynamic Sports Fitness & Chiropractic’s Adam Macek, Doctor of Chiropractic, is no stranger to the toll that sports take on the body. He decided to become a chiropractor, using techniques such as spine adjustment and functional rehabilitation, to battle that toll's effects and to help his patients get back to doing the activities that they love, instead of sitting on the sidelines, morosely eating dandelions.
Dr. Macek is certified in a number of ameliorative arts that reduce pain and muscle tension, including acupuncture and Kinesio Taping, as well as in golf fitness instruction, with which he uses slow-motion video and computer software to diagnose swing-related problems, such as overusing the upper body on the downswing and not getting enough arch support from bunny slippers. He utilizes four private treatment rooms, a rehabilitation room, and an x-ray suite to introduce bodies to electric-stimulation, ultrasound, and cryotherapy treatments.
Though the licensed practitioners at Acupuncture INC—Brian Musial and Tom Betts—came to acupuncture from different backgrounds, both discovered a passion for the technique after experiencing its results first-hand. Tom, for one, witnessed the relief it offered his clients while working as a personal trainer, and Brian recognized its potential while recovering from a sports injury that wouldn't respond to traditional medicine or inspirational speeches from his coach. Today, the pair strive to provide the same relief to clients that they were able to enjoy, but for a much wider array of afflictions—from back pain and headaches to insomnia and allergies.
After a brief consultation, the acupuncturist inserts hair-thin needles placed at key points on the body's energy pathways, thereby dislodging blockages of energy that might be preventing healing. While needles are central to each acupuncture treatment, sessions may be accompanied by other modalities such as cupping, magnets, or heat therapy.
Whether visitors need to ease pain, heal an aliment, or simply keep their bodies relaxed and working, chances are that Vitality Health Center will have their solution. The center, which was named a runner up in Naperville's 2013 list of its best clinics, employs a diverse and friendly staff that runs the gamut from spine specialists and massage therapists to acupuncturists and fitness instructors, each of whom strives to keep their clients healthy and pain-free through caring, personalized treatments. Those nursing muscular injuries can benefit from services such as physiotherapy and corrective exercises, whereas those looking to keep themselves healthy and fit can attend a fitness class, get nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice, or channel their inner chrysalis in one of the center's slimming body wraps, which are applied in a private room with video streaming capabilities.
Alicia Miller grew up in a family that relied on conventional Western medicine to treat its ills. Imagine her surprise when she started her training as a massage therapist and discovered the world of naturopathic medicine. The pharmaceutical-free siren song of this field called to her so strongly that she went on to graduate from one of the few accredited naturopathic medical schools in the country and take ownership of Natural Care Clinic in Naperville. Here, she helps clients embrace better nutrition and root out the causes of chronic conditions with drug-free treatments and lifestyle changes. Her colleagues David Miller offers therapeutic massage services that leave muscles relaxed and stress levels lower than a basement in Death Valley.
