Equipped with an extensive knowledge of Oriental medicine, licensed and experienced acupuncturist Margaret (Peggy) Older pinpoints pain with ancient medical artistry and soothing techniques.

Imagine Wholeness Massage Therapy's team of eight professional therapists are good at what they do. So good, in fact, that they won the category of Kansas City's "best massage" as chosen by readers of The Pitch. Each muscle-molder is proficient in a range of different massage modalities and is able to customize therapeutic massages to suit each guest’s needs, whether they’re pain-relief or relaxation. The staff also offers specialized massages for pregnant women and those dealing with chronic pain. Thanks to the studio's double-insulated walls, guests enjoy their massages without being distracted by honking cars, a noisy waiting room, or the sound of a middle-school marching band on their first day of practice.
