The only children's psychiatric hospital in Johnson County, Marillac Center provides a comprehensive range of mental-health services for children up to age 17, including hospitalization, residential treatment, and therapeutic education. To help traumatized or injured youth recuperate, recover, and reclaim their lives, Marillac uses a therapeutic model of care that helps children understand trauma and its impact on them.
Marillac's psychiatric hospital admits youth 24/7, including those in need of emergency assistance to stabilize an unsafe situation. In 2011, the hospital served 1,382 children and their families, and of those who reported suicidal ideation and self-harming behavior upon admission, a 99% decrease in those behaviors was observed upon discharge, according to Marillac's annual report. The organization also runs a residential treatment facility that serves children and adolescents in need of long-term, intensive treatment that cannot be provided in a hospital setting.
The physical sensations of being at the beach?the stress-melting warmth, the calm brought on by lapping waves?is what the staff try to recreate at Like a Day at the Beach. Saving their clients a plane ticket to Maui, the LDB Staff introduce them to these mechanized beds that knead the muscles with jade rollers and warm the core with infrared heat. The hands-free sessions are done without oils, so clients can leave the studio without having to shower or feeling compelled to flex their muscles. Like a Day at the Beach also provides noninvasive, ultrasonic cavitation treatments that use sound waves to disrupt fat cells and cause them to release their contents and metabolized them through the body's natural processes. Treatment sensation has been likened to that of a hot-stone massage, and is best for customers with 0.5 to 3.5 inches of extra fat.

Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
