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.
Inside a spa-like atmosphere, Mind, Body, & Soul's wellness experts tend to physical, emotional, and spiritual health with everything from massage to pain management to Reiki and Jataka. They believe that massage is a vital component of good health, and their Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone sessions fight harmful stress. They combat pain with low-level laser treatments, and use other noninvasive lasers to whittle waistlines and boost body image.
To help improve spiritual health, they rely on Reiki no-touch healing. They also compile Jataka documents?50-page reports interpreted by Indian yogis that discuss the client's past, present, and future. Every Jataka contains charts, calculations, and analytic predictions that foretell such things as when the client will have a favorable period in their career, i.e., when they open that horse-time-share business.
At Mind, Body, & Soul patients need to drink water on the road to a slimmer figure?but beyond that, their weight loss treatments have little in common with traditional diet and exercise plans. Instead of sweating at the gym, patients lie on a treatment table during non-invasive sessions with the clinic's cold laser systems: the YOLO Curve and the Lapex BCS Lipo Laser. Both systems are based on similar scientific principles?their lasers are set to the correct frequency to puncture fat cell membranes while leaving skin unharmed. Once punctured, the fat cells release their contents, which are disposed of naturally through the lymphatic system, just like human feelings. Time atop a full-body vibration platform catalyzes that process, as does drinking plenty of water before and after the treatment.
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.
