Northern Rehab’s Liza Piper Attends Mobility Course

Liza-Head Shot

Liza Piper, Physical Therapist at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists’ Genoa clinic, recently attended a course in Milwaukee, WI on Visceral Functional Mobilization(TM). This 3 day lab intensive course focused on gaining mobility of structures throughout the abdomen and pelvis. Limited visceral mobility impacts skeletal mobility and function of the involved organ. Abdominal structures can refer pain into the neck, shoulder, back, pelvis and other areas. People who suffer from back or neck pain often have restrictions in the structures in front of the spine including respiratory, digestive and other organs and may benefit from light, non-invasive mobilization of the connective tissue associated with these structures.

Liza enjoys treating a varied caseload including orthopedic, neurological and other medical conditions with a total patient approach. She will use a combination of advanced manual therapy techniques, re-education for effected muscles, and exercise. She is interested in promoting wellness and implementing prevention interventions. Liza is accepting new patients. To make an appointment or for any questions, contact Liza at Northern Rehab at (815) 784-6417.

A privately owned local business and voted Best Physical Therapists five years in a row, Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists has built a solid reputation and strong relationships within the communities it serves. Northern Rehab strives to treat patients in a professional, yet fun and friendly atmosphere providing quality, skilled hands-on physical and massage therapy with an emphasis on one-on-one physical therapy care provided by the therapist.

Luxe Salon Hosts a Blood Drive with a Twist

Kalrissa Taylor, owner of Luxe Salon in Sycamore, will partner with
Heartland Blood Centers to host a blood drive on Tues., June 27, 2017, from 3 to 7 p.m. at 352 W. State Street in Sycamore.

Heartland will collect donations in one of their mobile blood donation vehicles in front Luxe Salon, but this is a blood drive with a twist.  “We are thanking every person who donates with a certificate for a free haircut,” said Taylor. “I want to make sure people understand how important and appreciated their blood donation is.  We are always looking for ways to use our business to give back to our community, so rewarding people in our community for generously donating is a perfect way for us to do so.”

In addition to the certificate for a free haircut at Luxe Salon, every donor will be entered into a raffle for various haircare products and will be able to enjoy some well-known treats provided by local restaurants.

As of June 1, 2017, Heartland Blood Centers had only 50% of the 3-day supply of whole blood needed to meet the demands of the 70 hospitals they serve in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana. Donation events like the Luxe Salon Blood Drive help meet those critical demands.

“I don’t see how we could pass up this opportunity to make such an important difference in our community,” said Taylor. “I can’t match the generosity of the donor’s ‘gift of life,’ but I can certainly make them look excellent for having done it.”
To schedule your donation, stop by the reception desk at Luxe Salon or call (815) 991-5799.

About Luxe Salon
“Luxe Salon is dedicated to providing a memorable experience for each guest through
exceptional service and technical excellence,” said Taylor. “We will go the extra mile to
accomplish this mission with passion, expert advice, and the utmost professionalism and
courtesy.” The salon is located at 352 W. State Street, Sycamore. (815) 991-5799
