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.
Rose-sugar body scrubs, herbal body wraps and facials, heated-stone massages—whatever the service, pampering the guest is the first priority at Mona Lisa Spa & Salon.

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.

Lesley Neeley was in pain. Despite a rich family life, a meditative yoga practice, and a career as a certified massage therapist, inexplicable aches and fatigue racked her body with ever-increasing frequency and intensity. Her story chronicles six years of affliction and misdiagnosed depression, all of which finally led to her true diagnosis: fibromyalgia.
Now that she has battled the disorder herself, Lesley brings an uncommon empathy to her practice at Living Better Therapeutics, where she helps others cope with pain through her massage services and promotes education about fibromyalgia through presentations, workshops, and support groups. Lesley also supplements her already formidable education with continuing courses on craniosacral therapy, reiki, and Hatha yoga. When she isn’t healing muscles within the serene confines of her own private treatment room, she can travel to clients for an additional fee to soothe their aches amid the comforts of their own homes or batcaves.
