Laser Lipo & Vein Center's vein specialist and phlebologist, the board-certified Dr. Thomas Wright, has marked nearly every step of his career with an award. As a student at the University of Missouri's School of Medicine, his leadership and academic performance in the top quarter of his class got him elected to the venerable Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. After graduation, his voracious appetite for knowledge earned him a Physician Recognition Award from the American Medical Association, which recognizes doctors who average at least 50 credits of educational activities and swallow one textbook like a vitamin each year. Dr. Wright has also studied tumescent liposuction under the tutelage of its inventor, Dr. Jeffrey Klein. He also contributes original research to the American College of Phlebology, teaches classes at the American Society of Nonsurgical Aesthetics, and invests heavily in his patients.
The center reflects his primary interests in vein disease and liposuction that only requires local anesthesia. Vein therapies are determined by an ultrasound evaluation, which could lead to a noninvasive treatment that heals with radio waves and the sterile affection of a grandmother robot. Lasers round out the practice's aesthetic side, as they can assist in liposuction and provide a gentle alternative to cosmetic injections. In addition to routing hair from the skin's surface, they penetrate below it to rejuvenate aging skin and zap veins.

The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on
The Ellen DeGeneres Show and
The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
Direct Connection Chiropractic owner Penny Richardson began her career after her son Miles's health was saved by chiropractic care. At a year old, he began suffering from ear and sinus infections, asthma, and allergies. After rounds of ineffective antibiotics and allergy shots, a friend of Penny's recommended chiropractic therapy. Within three months, Miles was off all medication and breathing treatments, and he’s remained healthy for more than 20 years. Her son’s transformation inspired Penny to get her chiropractor’s license and work to give her patients a chance for a new beginning with nonsurgical and noninvasive chiropractic treatments. With meticulous adjustments, the doctor helps align spines in adults and children, getting to the root of pain and discomfort. In addition to her chiropractic exams and adjustments, Dr. Penny also offers weight-loss and facial services to help achieve shapely curves and toned, glowing complexions.
