Westmont, IL, March 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Physicians Sports and Injury Center, a Westmont-based health care center dedicated to providing the highest quality of chiropractic, health and wellness, and rehabilitative medical care, has named Annette Wehrend as a massage therapist and exclusive practitioner to administer elastin infusion therapy treatments to patients.
A facial rejuvenation treatment that helps treat wrinkles, elastin infusion therapy requires no injections and no chemicals to reveal astonishingly younger looking skin.
Elastin infusion therapy involves the application of a genetically engineered protein, in cream form, called Elastatropin. The cream is worked deeply into skin tissues with the help of microcurrent, a form of electrical stimulation that administers a small, safe and painless electrical charge delivered via probes that are manipulated by the practitioner. The current allows the molecules in the cream to penetrate and balance targeted cells and trigger natural electrochemical reactions that are conducive to tissue healing. Microcurrent also “re-educates” muscles and produces collagen, an important protein that helps connect and support body tissue.
Elastin infusion treatment sessions typically take 30 to 45 minutes each. A normal treatment package comprises several sessions over a number of weeks — usually 10 sessions for facial therapy and five to 15 sessions for body sculpting.
Annette Wehrend is a native of Burr Ridge and currently resides in Wheaton with her family. She received her massage therapist training from the Wellness and Massage Training Institute. Previously, Wehrend worked as a certified massage therapist for a doctor of chiropractic for nearly two years before launching a successful solo practice in the western suburbs for four years. She also worked as a certified respiratory therapist at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Ill., St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur, and Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago for a total of eight years. Wehrend earned her bachelor of science degree in public administration from Northern Illinois University.
