Holistic Fitness aims to cleanse the body inside and out, employing staff members whose talents stretch as wide as their tallest client's arms. Three certified colon hydrotherapists, three massage therapists, and a doctor of chiropractic all call the holistic center home and offer services that complement one another. For example, Dr. Anne Roulo often recommends her chiropractic patients combine adjustments with colon hydrotherapy, which can increase energy levels and wash away toxic material.
Dr. Tobin Lingafelter treats back and neck pain with a strategic combination of chiropractic care and detoxification services. With the Solo dome system, clients can detoxify and be relieved from pain using safe, far-infrared heat. Radiant heat penetrates the skin during each 30-minute session, leaving clients with a natural warmth akin to sunbathing or being under a pile of polar bears.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum teaches aesthetician and cosmetology aspirants to administer mani-pedis, haircuts, and other pampering services under the watchful eye of licensed and experienced instructors. Customers opting for the mani-pedi will plop into padded seats before extremities technicians direct their focus to prettifying digits of all sizes and decimal points. Skilled keratin crafters will tend to hand parts with expert care during luxurious spa manicures, before sprucing backup fingers with soothing spa pedicures. Those who choose today's second option will also receive a haircut, shampoo, and style under the deft hands of a studious hairdresser. Trained sculptors of scalp whiskers use high-quality products from Peel's Salon Services as they trim, wash, and style manes in 30–45 minutes, the same time it takes to finish a game of full-contact hopscotch. Alternatively, the glycolic smoothing peel and aromatherapy-oil body wrap reinvigorates sleepy visages and hydrates drought-swept skin expanses. During the peel, facial cells receive an exfoliation that can reduce the visibility of undesired facial features such as minor scars, fine lines, and second noses. During the aromatherapy-oil wrap, calming scents elicit thoughts of peace and potpourri as the gently compressed epidermis replenishes its empty aquifers. Xenon International Academy’s Ballwin campus boasts an 18,000-square-foot space sufficient to house four fully equipped semiprivate spa rooms, a private waxing room, 72 client-service stations, and three classroom workshops, with space leftover to park a hoverized Mississippi steamboat. Walk-ins and appointments are welcome.
St. Louis Lipo Laser eschews the space-age aesthetic one might expect from a laser body-sculpting center; if anything, the clinic's unassuming red-brick storefront invokes the charm of a neighborhood medical practice. This same charm pervades the center's treatment rooms, where skilled physicians and technicians welcome their patients with old-fashioned kindness as they call upon noninvasive lipo-laser technology in lieu of traditional liposuction to help combat excess pounds. Lipo-laser treatments can shrink fat cells around the hips, arms, thighs, and other areas without inflicting the incisions that more invasive fat-removal procedures require. After laser sessions coupled with body-vibration treatments, patients may see increased flexibility and other benefits similar to those of traditional exercise, and they can immediately resume such regular activities as walking down stairs and climbing up elevator cables.
