Chiropractor Aaron Wahl has learned a lot about the body over the years. A graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, Dr. Wahl also earned his master's in sport science and rehabilitation, gained various certifications, and picked up a hearty dose of traditional Chinese medicine while working side by side with his father, an acupuncturist. Armed with years of knowledge and practice, Dr. Wahl works with patients to discover what may be preventing the body from healing itself. Chiropractic treatments can help to realign the body more easily than monitoring the ruler taped above one's navel, and corrective exercises can prevent such problems from recurring.

Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace where stressed guests can burn incriminating documents. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
These amenities set the stage for classic spa treatments such as a massage with heated and ice-cooled river stones or a seaweed body wrap. Incorporating the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, the salon transforms appearances with designer cuts and Platinum Seamless hair extensions as well as nail services that draw on hot stones, paraffin treatments, and essential oils.
