Licensed massage therapists render a panoply of massage modalities geared toward fulfilling their professional mission of vanquishing pain. The team observes that pain encroaches into bodies from many sources, such as stress from work, overexertion from playing sports, or stiffness from traveling cross-country in an overhead bin. To combat these many causes and iterations of pain, each massage therapist culls their experiences to choreograph their own interpretations of massage modalities, each tailored specifically to fit the needs of the client.
At Skin Clinic, owner Maria Anello Aponte creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments such as SmoothSculpt, which tones skin around the jowls and neck and smoothes away wrinkles without using any starch. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.
AlySim Spa welcomes men and women to indulge in relaxing spa services ranging from soothing massages to body treatments buoyed by lavender or garden mint and algae. Using mineral-based, organic skincare products, the licensed aestheticians brighten complexions with youthful glows during customized facials. LumiLift rejuvenations combat signs of aging by restoring the skin's natural elasticity, and collagen lip treatments use sugar-cane crystals to exfoliate peeling skin and grant a natural, rosy color more effectively than just eating candy canes.
As the name implies, the licensed chiropractors and wellness professionals of KC Sports Docs place a special emphasis on healing athletic injuries. But that's not all they do. They also help clients from all walks of life maintain a healthy, active lifestyle with chiropractic exams, adjustments, and massage therapy.
One exemplary member of the staff is Dr. Steven Flanery, who has worked with Olympic athletes as well as the University of Missouri's football and wrestling teams. Trained in active release techniques that help break up adhesions, Dr. Flanery considers his job done only when he has fully eradicated pain. He and his peers at KC Sports Docs understand that the body is a single, interconnected organism, and they design their treatments with this in mind. Rather than waste their time checking the expiration date on each individual vertebra, they strive to promote overall wellness and achieve lasting results.
