In the craziness of today’s fast-paced world, carving out time for your health and wellbeing is more important than ever. We’ve gathered several local experts to share rejuvenating and reinvigorating treatments and services so that you have all the resources you need to look and feel your best.
Reflections Body Solutions
Reflections Body Solutions offers a new treatment option for the tightening of the skin & visible reduction of wrinkles & lines. VirtueRF works by applying sterile microneedles deep into the dermis of the skin. The needles create microscopic channels that deliver radio-frequency heat energy at the desired depths to promote remodeling of the collagen and the elastin that tightens & lifts the skin.
Patient Benefits from VirtueRF:
• Tighter Skin
• Reduced Pore Size
• Improved Tone & Texture.
• No Downtime
VirtueRF microneedles are driven into the skin using the exclusive robotic precision delivery system. The insertion of the needles is so exact that it creates no tearing or trauma to the skin. It delivers the heat under the skin precisely where it needs to go without causing burning, itching or irritation.
VirtueRF treatments are spaced 5 weeks apart and a series of 3 treatments is recommended for a patient who has never had the VirtueRF before. A maintenance treatment is recommended every 6 months.
VirtueRF can treat the face, neck, chest, arms, stomach & knees. We are very excited to be able to offer this exciting technology to Reflections Body Solutions. Our consultations are complimentary & look forward to seeing you soon!
BROW BAR is a unique beauty spa nestled in Kansas City’s Brookside Shops. I started BROW BAR because I saw an opportunity to offer beauty services in a way that was not being done. So many times I had visited aesthetics studios, salons and medical “spas” that gave me what I needed but not what I truly desired. I always felt like these visits were the perfect opportunity to relax, but I never felt relaxed. I usually felt rushed and that the experience was cold and sterile. I knew I could do better, so in 2018, I started BROW BAR. From day one the focus was on quality. Quality of the experience first and foremost, but quality of products, services, tools and everything in between as well. We offer the comforts of a high-end spa but with all of the advanced beauty treatments women are looking for. Our mission is to make every beauty treatment, even
a brow wax or botox, feel like a spa experience. We want
you to leave feeling beautiful and relaxed!

Center for Nutrition & Preventative Medicine
Most Americans have gained weight in recent months. Being overweight can rob you of joy, energy and health—and with COVID-19 added to the list of common health concerns, weight loss has never been more important.
Losing weight and keeping it off is far more difficult than most people realize, and unfortunately, common weight loss attempts are ineffective. Food cravings, chronic hunger or a sluggish metabolism can make weight loss impossible. A powerful, personalized, medically based treatment plan can be the key to success.
Since founding the Center for Nutrition in 1996, Dr. Rick Tague, M.D., M.P.H. & T.M., has assisted over 30,000 patients in losing over 500,000 pounds. A medical weight loss and “Optimum Health” specialist, Dr. Tague is an Alpha Omega Alpha honors graduate of Tulane University School of Medicine.
He also holds a Masters Degree in Public Health from Tulane and is board certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine and the American Board of Family Medicine.
Dramatic improvements in self-esteem, energy levels, activity levels and health measures have been typical among Dr. Tague’s patients while losing 20, 40, 60, 100 pounds or more. If you need a personal treatment plan to lose weight and improve your nutrition, seek help from someone with understanding and experience.
Dr. Tague’s Center for Nutrition and Preventive Medicine has medical clinics in Leawood and in Topeka. For more information, or to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation, contact the Center for Nutrition at 913-814-8222 in Leawood or 785-273- 4443 in Topeka, or visit TagueNutrition.com.
Myofascial Release Therapy

If your muscles are tight and you don’t feel as flexible as you used to be, Myofascial Release Therapy might be for you. And flexibility is far more than just touching-your-toes bragging rights—tightened muscles can lead to serious injury or ongoing pain issues. Myofascial Release Therapy is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. Jan Kelly established Midwest Myofascial Release Center to empower healing at one’s own pace in hopes of returning to a pain-free, active lifestyle through individualized treatment. Myofascial Release Therapy is the foundation of our treatment approach, and in addition to MFR, we offer Far Infrared Sauna sessions, Therapeutic Massage, Scar Tissue Release, and Myofascial Cupping to assist the body in detoxing and releasing restrictions to further assist the body in breaking the cycle of pain.
