Most people attending a college reunion don't expect a massage. Then again, most people going in for a massage don't expect a college reunion. But at Whole Self Massage Therapy, where six of the seven therapists honed their chops at Healing Arts Institute in Ohio, the specialists share much more than an alma mater. Their similar training has instilled in them a seasoned skill set and passion for wellness, which is evidenced in their attentive Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massages. The path to wellness also leads through the facility's sauna, where clients can shed toxins and summon their spirit-Zamboni, and diverges at many turns into rooms where hands and feet relish in paraffin treatments and acupuncturists align energies via the centuries-old Chinese healing practice.
Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body. Varicose vein treatments involve radio frequency ablation and use thermal energy to shrink vein walls and seal them closed. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option.
