JeVae Collins, a licensed massage therapist at The Wellness Spot, says that her favorite part of her job is the pain relief she sees clients experience. After a soothing Swedish or deep-tissue massage, her clients often report a decrease in headaches, chronic pain, and tension. "I have always had the passion to help," JeVae says, "but now I have the ability to heal."
Treatment tables, treadmills, stationary bikes, and open-mat space serve as the stomping grounds for Omni Physical Therapy?s therapists and patients. Physical-therapy and personal-training sessions help clients get into better shape, and find relief from chronic pain and injuries from football and foosball.
An injury sustained while practicing mixed martial arts left Marcus unable to bend his knee without searing discomfort. However, after two sports massage sessions, he was able to resume his normal workout routine completely pain-free. The experience made him a sports massage convert. Today, as Contour Sports Massage's resident therapist, he strives to assist athletes with the same pain-relieving techniques.
Drawing from several massage methodologies, Marcus customizes each of his sessions around the client's particular injury and sport. His massages not only lessen the soreness and tension in muscles, but also help increase flexibility and range of motion. Besides his appointments at Contour Sports Massage, Marcus also hits the road to conduct on-site massages for athletes during training, before a big game, or after an overzealous touchdown dance.
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.
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.

Other services augment physiques, such as IPL hair removal, vein treatments, and laser skin resurfacing. The medspa also features a variety of spa services such as massages, microdermabrasion, facials, and teeth whitening.
