The human body has evolved a reliable system for signaling discomfort and pain: backs throb to indicate overuse and noses beep to indicate low-battery life. Abide the body's high-priority communiqués with today's deal: for $45, you get a 60-minute massage at Wellness Dimensions in Overland Park, Kansas (a $90 value).
The medical practitioners at Wellness Dimensions seek out the root causes of physical ailments and address them accordingly with holistic and natural healing treatments, emphasizing a functional approach to medicine. Aches and pains abandon their muscle abodes at the hands of a 60-minute therapeutic massage, which can deploy a variety of techniques such as reiki, prenatal, and craniosacral. During a sports massage, dexterous fingers target specific sore spots caused by athletic activity and competitive flexing in front of the mirror. Therapists can warm up weary muscles with 60 minutes of hot-stone therapy, or help improve lymphatic flow with an innovative cupping session. The certified therapists also conduct table sessions in the Arvigo techniques of Maya abdominal massage. The noninvasive therapy aims to reposition misaligned internal organs to improve blood flow and prevent the liver from tickling the heart while it's trying to concentrate.
The naturopathic/functional practitioners at Wellness Dimensions have tasked themselves with the lofty goal of "restor[ing] health on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual." Functional medicine is derived from the belief that health is not merely the absence of disease, but the active presence of balance and wellness. So to attend to all systems in the body, Wellness Dimension's seven-person staff includes a massage therapist, a naturopathic clinician, and a traditional M.D. Treatments are equally diverse, ranging from the ancient, such as acupuncture, to the modern, including Venus Freeze body sculpting and massages from robots.
