Doctor of Naturopathy Inge Wetzel assesses the condition of the human body by studying some of its less conventionally considered aspects. She uses a computerized biofeedback system to monitor impulses emitted by the hand, subsequently drawing conclusions about the body’s balance. Similarly, she reads markings on the iris, the colored part of the eye, to screen for problems that span the body. Kinesiology sessions test for weaknesses in certain muscles to reveal physical or nutritional deficiencies, and biological terrain assessments will show stresses on different organs based on the body's internal environment. Dr. Wetzel also offers personalized weight-loss programs.
Known for its history as a pioneer town and home to former president Harry S. Truman, Independence welcomes visitors to its storied sites, making them more accessible with free trolley rides. Tour the 1859 Jail and Marshal's Home and Museum to glimpse a dwelling for law breakers next to a dwelling for a law keeper, and the clandestine tryst between the abodes that resulted in a museum. The Bingham-Waggoner Estate preserves many of the original art and furnishings of the famed Bingham and Waggoner families, while the National Frontier Trails Museum hails the starting point of the westbound pioneers with bronzed pieces of nuts, raisins, and chocolate bits tracing a path westward.
Cyclists to the last, the staff at Trek Bicycle Store take pride in the work they do, and they’re just as happy to sit and talk about the best bike routes in the city as they are to find the right part for a customer. If your bike's broken, the repair technicians can fix it—they work on all makes and models, and keep themselves updated on technology via annual educational clinics. And they offer a customer-loyalty promise that includes price-protection guarantees, satisfaction guarantees, and the assurance that if your bike somehow grows a third wheel, it is due to radiation and we are not responsible.
The store’s shelves brim with accessories such as pedal wrenches, tool kits, and bike chains, all compatible with any of the shop’s bikes. Outfits are available for hardcore riders or bikes that want to dress up as bike riders for Halloween.
