Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack founded HealthSource, a network of more than 380 practices across the country, based on his innovative treatment protocols and rehab techniques. One such trademarked therapy is his Progressive Rehab, which works to strengthen the area of the body that is causing the pain, rather than numbing it with medication or introspective lectures on mortality.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack conquered myriad fields and the skies before pursuing the art of chiropractics. After graduating from college, Tomshack became an officer in the U.S. Air Force, received his MBA, and finally graduated summa cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Calling upon his newly mastered spinal savvy, Tomshack opened his own practice, whose enormous success led to a gradual expansion and eventually became the nationwide network that exists today. At each HealthSource location, teams of licensed chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical trainers work in unison to help provide comprehensive care, restore ailing statures, and lead masterful renditions of the hokey pokey.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
As its tropical name makes clear, Caribbean Mist Tanning Spa specializes in bronzing bodies with standup beds and UV-free airbrush spray tans. When they aren’t helping clients stand out on the beach or hide amid shiny stacks of pennies, the staff rounds out their beauty menu with mani-pedis, waxing services, and treatments that add shiny tinsel to hair.
At the time Doctor Rotskoff graduated from Washington University, he was one of only 30 doctors in the country to hold dual degrees in medicine and dentistry. He went on to combine his specialty in oral maxillofacial surgery with his expertise in cosmetic surgery, and is considered an authority on facial reconstruction in addition to body contouring and laser skin rejuvenation. When he isn't lecturing to national and international audiences or authoring chapters for leading medical journals, Dr. Rotskoff joins Dr. Timothy Gillum, a board-certified surgeon specializing in both head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Together, they oversee a staff of laser technicians who help patients discover less-invasive ways to turn back the clock. Wielding Syneron laser technology, they usher unwanted stubble off the body's map and help erase signs of aging with microdermabrasion, photofacial treatments, and ReFirme skin tightening. Renew Cosmetic Spa offers complimentary consultations to all prospective patients, encouraging them to visit the center, learn about the treatments from a specialist, and claim a favorite chair in the waiting room.
