In 18 years of practicing massage, Debbie Price has logged some high-profile clientele in more than a few important places. She has unknotted the gridlocked muscles of Kansas City Chiefs players and served as the massage therapist for both the US Paralympic Track & Field team in Beijing and the US Olympic bobsled team in Utah. In Vancouver, Austria, and Rio de Janeiro, her hands have quelled the insistent aches of clients ranging from 8 to 92 years old. But lately, the globetrotting stress reliever has been occupied right nearby at her very own studio, Debbie Price Massage Therapy Services.
Debbie specializes in soft-tissue pain management and pain reduction, and has worked on clients with fibromyalgia, sciatica pain, and carpal tunnel. Forgoing a cookie-cutter method, she customizes each treatment to address each client?s complaints. Whether they?re experiencing lower-back pain, shoulder soreness, or muscle tension, Debbie weaves Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage techniques into a treatment that keeps clients?whether they?re returning to a cubicle, hitting the AstroTurf, or working a life-size abacus?feeling loose and re-energized.
For 30 years, Pierce Medical Clinic has taken a holistic approach to health, addressing the cosmetic side effects of aging and illness while enhancing physical function. Doctor of osteopathy John Gamble and advanced registered nurse practitioner Morris Coltrain oversee patient care, starting with face-to-face chats to draw up individual wellness plans. The plans forge a path toward goals such as weight loss, youthful skin, and an eye-catching immune system, which the team sustains with steady medical support. Additionally, the staff provides complimentary body analyses that enlighten patients with stats about their water and fat retention and identify their target weight. Treatments may include simple solutions such as calorie restriction and plant-derived Vemma meal supplements, which fortify the body by sprouting flying buttresses. The staff also administers high-tech medical procedures, including an FDA-approved technique for removing heavy metals from tissues and natural hormone-replacement therapy to combat disorders ranging from infertility to depression.
Massage Midwest's licensed massage therapist and rehabilitation specialist mends muscles with relaxation- and medical-style massages. During a chair massage, the client sits facing the cushions of a specially made massage chair as the professional kneader assuages the exposed back, shoulders, neck, and arms. Clients can opt to receive the relaxing treatment atop a massage table or in a kitchen sink instead of a chair, and massage upgrades are available for an additional cost.
With return clients making up approximately 90% of the studio's business, the bodywork experts make sure that each treatment addresses the particular therapeutic needs of the individual. Patrons can part the pea soup with a moment of clarity that will live beyond their visit to Massage Midwest. They may use their newfound clearheadedness and rubberized being to achieve higher productivity, contagiously relax those around them, or finally beat Galaga.
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.
Conveniently located near the Kansas City medical center, A Sacred Place for Healing acts as an oasis for those in need of pain relief and relaxation.

Angela dishes out Swedish treatments to pamper her patients and also administers energy-based reiki sessions. In order to treat chronic pain or soreness caused by sitting through a public reading of the entire dictionary, Angela uses deep-tissue techniques that dig down into musculature to tackle lingering back pain.
