Armed with a variety of spa services, Salon Burget’s highly trained squad of specialists imparts sentient stick figures with style and confidence in a comfy atmosphere. If you seek to speed your way to a professional, finished image, treat your arm enders to an express treatment with today's digit-enhancing duo. Salon Burget's 25-minute express manicure ($20) flattens out hand humbugs such as ragged tips, hangnails, dull claws, and feathered talons, beginning with a nail trim, shaping, and a cuticle push and leading to a nail buff and shine. Meanwhile, the 30-minute shellac treatment puts a finishing glimmer on a primped likeness with the choice of shellac french tips ($22) or a color or clear shellac ($17), a strong, naturally derived polish. Shellac's UV curing also nixes drying time, helping busy clients get back on the go quickly.
Sean Bennington uses his own experience with pain and recovery to help others stop hurting and regain control of their lives. Since no two patients are exactly alike, Bennington uses a variety of treatments to restore healing and function. He employs joint injections, for example, to reduce joint friction and inflammation and promote stability with stronger muscle tension. Other treatments can break up scar tissue and help stabilize joint structure. In addition, the Cornerstone staff makes sure clients can perform as much care as possible afterward in their own homes.
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.
At Stephens Chiropractic and Wellness, Dr. Andrea M. Stephens and her staff use a holistic and natural approach to help their clients achieve wellness. A licensed doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Andrea uses chiropractic techniques to help fix subluxations of the spine, which can cause stress around nerves and lead to problems such as chronic pain, depression, and allergies. She also specializes in acupuncture and cold-laser therapy, which uses low-level lasers to help alleviate maladies such as migraines, back pain, and arthritis. Resident massage therapist Kaylee Spencer puts her expert hands to work treating patients with therapeutic Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage, all of which include aromatherapy.
Visiting six bars in a single day usually results in a haggard appearance. But at The Body Bar, you can stop by six bars in anticipation of heading downtown for a seventh. That's because the staff specializes in beauty as its prime intoxicant, administering hair, nail, and other spa services at their respective stations. The Nail Bar gussies up fingers and toes with Minx adhesives or Gelish polish, both of which resist wear and tear for two weeks without the protection of fiberglass thimbles. At the Wellness Bar, massages soothe aches and the heat from an infrared sauna helps induce detoxifying sweat. Seasoned technicians strip away unwanted hair at the BeBare Bare, whereas the Blowout Bar’s stylists work with the hair you have, crafting quick new 'dos with washing and blow-drying. You can finish primping for a night on the town with a custom airbrush tan at the Bronze Bar, or head to the Beauty Bar for a makeup application, teeth-whitening treatment, or eyebrow and lash tint.
Lisa Adams got her start in the health and wellness industry as a registered nurse specializing in surgical and pediatric care. After spending more than 15 years in the health-care field, she realized that her patients were spending too much time and money on treating their symptoms and not enough on prevention. So, in 2008, after earning a national certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork, she left nursing to open Spirit of Namaste' Massage And Body Work.
In her practice, Lisa specializes in two therapies designed to bring the body back into balance. The first, Maya abdominal massage, helps relieve digestive disorders by guiding abdominal organs back into their optimal positions and then telling them to stay by using a treat. Flowtrition, on the other hand, uses gentle touches along the spinal cord to relieve tension and pain at the neurological level, typically in just 15–30 minutes. Lisa can perform these therapies on adults and children as well as dogs and horses.
