King Chiropractic is a family operation helmed by Doctor of Chiropractic Rich King and his wife, Caroline King. It's not unusual to see one of their five children helping out around the office as dad aligns wayward spines and helps patients get back on the path to health through holistic interventions. Dr. King treats more than just back pain—he also addresses internal disorders, allergies, and nutrition issues. He uses a variety of tests and panels to assess the functioning of the adrenal glands, immune system, and other organs.

The dietary experts at Success Meals KC have a knack for creating healthy meals that taste just as delicious as their calorie-bogged counterparts. They concoct their nutritious alternatives according to a personalized meal profile, which they compile based on a customer's goals, caloric quota, lifestyle, palate, and ability to photosynthesize. By 6 a.m. each weekday, a bounty of three meals and two snacks lands on doorsteps, prepped for heating and eating. The three feasts include eatables such as a turkey-sausage breakfast burrito, a lunchtime mediterranean pizza, and grilled pork tenderloin, broken up by a midmorning snack and midafternoon dessert. Dishes are doled out according to several different programs, including ones for couples and kids, and are supplemented by guidance from dietary specialists to help achieve fitness.
Drawing upon her clinical background at a skin-treatment facility, Kenlee’s Skin Shop’s eponymous owner tends to wearied dermises with services that include facials, microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and waxing. Before embarking on facial or body treatments, Kenlee reads freckle horoscopes during a custom skin analysis that accounts for dryness and distinguishes dirt from penciled-on mustaches. Rather than trust other beauty purveyors for cosmetics that complement her many skin treatments, Kenlee stocks her studio’s shelves with her own mad-scientist creations. KSS Mineral Makeup boasts nine signature shades and three universal powders to help create a smooth, even complexion free of acne blemishes and glued-on clown noses.
