Although some may think the eyes, the hands, or the kneecaps are the most important parts of the body, Arnica Muscle & Fitness believes muscles are actually the most vital. With the motto “muscles move us,” the business tends to muscles through therapeutic massage, personal training, and fitness classes. Circuit training and yogilates—a hybrid yoga-Pilates class—put muscles through the ringer before a licensed massage therapist quells soreness and tension with targeted pressure, soothing strokes, and heated stones.
Dr. Miller, the chiropractic doctor at Integrated Health Sports and Wellness Center, believes that chiropractic care is more about understanding and taking care of the body than it is about simply making pain disappear. At his spacious wellness center that's been featured on FOX 4 Kansas City TV News, he and his staff of healthcare professionals work to find out the source of any problems, rather than treating just the symptoms. Offering chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and electrical muscle stimulations, along with a host of other services, the friendly staff customizes treatments to every individual. They can perform a cold laser liposuction treatment, or render custom foot orthotics made to improve daily movement?specifically, to improve bus-chasing capabilities.
Amber Quigg's signature approach to massage therapy can promote healing in every single stage of her clients' lives. Before they're even brought into the world, Amber's prenatal treatments help babies and mothers-to-be relax during the stressful time that is pregnancy. As they grow up, her specialized pediatric massage can alleviate growing pains and anxiety surrounding a toddler’s choice of favorite-color crayon. Should they discover athletics as teenagers, sports massage prevents injury and kneads away kinks caused by the rigors of physical exertion. Amber's cozy space, which is decorated with hanging art, lighted by tea candles, and painted in serene hues, is also a great escape for grownups juggling work, parenting, and bowling balls.
At Club 7 Fitness, members cap an energizing spinning class or sprint round the indoor track with a quick soak in the whirlpool and a sweet treat from the juice bar. The 50,000 square foot club showers patrons with amenities including a spacious cardio deck, full service tanning salon, and chiropractic services. Members sharpen their swing at the racquetball courts, learn to roundhouse kick through tae kwon do classes, or stop by a SPARQ class for sports-specific training to enhance speed, power, and agility.
DeLynn's Place tailors each one-hour deep-tissue massage to the individual client's needs, addressing muscle aches and chronic pain with strong pressure and repetitive strokes. A mixture of invigorating kneading and pinpoint application of pressure targets painful muscular kinks and knots, releasing the achiness and tension accumulated from the stresses of daily life and kangaroo boxing. The deep pressure also stimulates muscles, the lymph system, and blood vessels, encouraging an increase in circulation. With rich, oxygenated blood rushing into previously stifled tissues, the body's own healing systems are invigorated by the delivery of oxygen and the Sunday Times to bored, nutrient-deprived cells.
