In keeping with the trend toward treatment of mind and body under one roof, a Lee’s Summit chiropractor is joining forces with three local psychologists.

The new Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center at 400 S.W. Longview Blvd. also will offer a dietitian, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga and other fitness classes.

Dr. Joe Symes opened Rejuvenate Chiropractic Center at the New Longview location almost four years ago but said he had long planned to create a wellness center with the psychologists at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center.

The psychologists have been practicing at 3367 N.E. Ralph Powell Road for almost three years and are planning to merge with Symes’ practice in about two months, after expansion space is finished.

The psychologists are Scott Symes, Joe Symes’ brother; Adam Fellows; and Adam’s wife, Tiffany Fellows. Joe Symes said he, his brother and Adam Fellows grew up together in Nevada, Mo. In college the Symes brothers decided to take different health care routes, he said. But they always fully understood the mind-body connection in health that is now connecting their practices.

“Chronic long-term pain might not always be just the result of something like a hip being out of alignment,” Symes said.

Weight may also be an issue, he said. And stress and depression might be issues underlying weight gain or other health problems, Adam Fellows added.

According to Fellows, the psychologists at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness use cognitive therapy to help patients understand the thought processes that may be sabotaging their health.

But in addition to treating health problems, Fellows added, the principals at Rejuvenate want to help people prevent them by staying fit.

Toward that end, they are tripling the size of the current chiropractic space to include a studio where yoga, pilates, kickboxing, other wellness classes and personal training will take place.

The partners are also thinking about adding some programs for children, like a kids yoga class, and an adult class that would combine outdoor walking and yoga.

Fellows said Lee’s Summit was an ideal location for a wellness center due to its highly educated, fitness-minded population. And Symes said New Longview was in a particularly active part of town, as evidenced by all the joggers and cyclists.

To enhance service to the community, Rejuvenate plans to launch a new website in October. A grand opening at the center will likely be held in early November.
