Dim lights and candles illuminate the earth-toned walls and other Tuscan flourishes that complement Serendipity Boutique and Day Spa’s relaxing salon and spa services. The all-inclusive oasis houses a staff of stylists and aestheticians who work tirelessly to soften skin, soothe aching muscles, and enhance the appearance of hair and nails. Clients awaiting treatment can sip on steamy beverages from an in-house espresso bar or peruse the spa’s very own boutique, which enhances newly treated areas with jewelry, handbags, footwear and apparel.
The wellness professionals at Serenity on the Square remove the obstacles that inhibit personal growth. They do this by ushering patrons on an inward journey—a journey that challenges the individual to look inside, just past the spleen, and confront the emotional limitations that block success. They also foster growth by healing the body, believing that "when you feel your best, you are your best, and you expect the best." This mission statement points to the center's services, which include massage therapy, yoga, reiki, and holistic nutritional counseling.
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.
At Skin Solutions, located inside Rio Salon, the staff has an express set of goals: to reduce the signs of age and get rid of unwanted hair while impacting their clients' day as little as possible. To these ends, registered nurse Kathy LeFever leads an aesthetic team through the use of Botox and noninvasive lasers, filling out wrinkles and zapping unwanted hair from head to toe. And the combination of these two treatments is indicative of the larger trend that all the aestheticians follow—pairing pampering services with medical-grade technology. Facials and peels, for instance, offset IPL facial treatments and micro-pigmentation cosmetics, which render eyeliner that lasts up to five years, by which time everyone will have CGI eyeliner.
The old saying goes something like this—if you give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he’ll eat for a lifetime. It’s that line of thinking that drives the spa technicians at Jubils Salon & Day Spa. As they perform aesthetic services that range from haircuts to facials and massage, they strive to enlighten their clients with tips on how to better care for their skin, hair, and nails. Armed with these techniques, clients can then improve their at-home skincare regimens, which previously consisted of sleeping in tubs of oatmeal and never leaving the house.
