The chiropractic practitioners at Adjust 4 Life are dedicated to helping their patients maintain optimum health through holistic alternatives to prescription meds and full-body Cyberman upgrades. You'll receive a consultation to determine your particular health needs and a digital nerve analysis (a $125 value), during which the spine is scanned with a tool that measures nerve strength between the brain and internal organs and determines just how automatically your autonomic nervous system is performing. Post-exam, you'll receive an adjustment (a $40 value) to your most afflicted area, be it the back, neck, or phantom arm. This is followed by a 30-minute therapeutic massage (a $45 value), ideal for freeing trapped stress from the dark well of your muscles.
Slimming Solutions is more than a name—it's a promise. The medspa, which is staffed by a doctor, a nurse, a nurse practitioner, and a medical aesthetician, treats clients to a wealth of services that help them to slim figures and enhance appearances. The non-invasive lipo laser blasts fat on arms, hips, and bellies with low-level wavelengths that break down fat cells, while the radio frequency body contouring uses heat to tighten and smooth skin while serenading it with the latest polka hit. Other services augment physiques, such as IPL hair removal, vein treatments, and laser skin resurfacing.
One nippy Tuesday morning, Oliver H. Gerry swung open a set of doors inside the Grand Avenue Temple in downtown Kansas City. It was January 23, 1912, and that unfurled entranceway symbolized the first day Gerry Optical was open for business. In the 100 years since, professionally trained technicians have prepared eyewear to complement the styles of countless clients, including President Harry Truman and Senator Nancy Kassebaum. Today, each of the store's nine locations carries between 800 and 1,200 frames from brands such as Calvin Klein, Ray-Ban, Prada, and BCBG, and the flagship store on 75th Street also houses its own grinding lab to quickly custom-craft lenses and fix cracks after cartoon eye-popping mishaps. To honor its deep community roots, Gerry Optical gives back by partnering with Lions Clubs International to provide discount eye exams and eyeglasses to underprivileged families.
A cadre of physicians oversees three divisions that form a greater healthcare network. Primary Care Plus is a comprehensive center for family wellness and aesthetics. Emergent Care Plus provides urgent care and lab work seven days a week, an alternative to rushing to the ER or suffering quietly. Sports Med Plus, the hotshot fighter pilot of the group, focuses on injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Its doctors work with advanced diagnostic equipment such as ImPACT, a computerized test that determine whether a concussed athlete can return to play.
Keri Eichhorn, the licensed aesthetician at Summit Plastic Surgery & Med Spa with more than 1,500 training hours, deep cleans and rejuvenates complexions with enhanced medical microdermabrasions. Keri begins by swabbing away dirt and oils, then coaxing open the pores with hot towels, steam, and unsubtle bribery. A pre-exfoliation mask loosens dull skin cells before a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand buffs them away. Next, a low-grade glycolic or salicylic chemical peel soaks deep into skin to promote collagen production and strip away remaining impurities. An oxygen treatment chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids hydrates and replenishes the newly purged skin, and an application of sunblock defends against sunburns and the unrelenting chatter of the sun god, Ra.
Jamila Skincare's custom facial starts with a gentle pre-cleaning. Then the facial treatment breaks through the tough outer layer of dermis to nourish the neglected skin cells underneath. A mask built specifically for you in lock-and-key fashion can help address any of your specific skin care concerns. Post-treatment hydration will ensure your skin retains all of its moisture and repels the amorous advances of dry autumn air. Facial products, free of synthetic colors and fragrances, will leave your face shimmering like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking on it.
