Our patients travel to the Danto Osteopathic Clinic from all over the country. Most of Dr. Danto's patients are from the Kansas City area, but some people travel from hours away. And, other people travel from all over the United States. This is reminiscent of the patients that had travelled from all over the country to see Dr. Still, the founder of Osteopathy. The travel in Dr. Still's day was by horse and buggy, as well as by train and ship. Today, most people travel by car or plane, but the effects of the travel are quite different from those experienced in Dr. Still's day.
In Dr. Still's day you did not travel far fast. An hour's journey on the expressway now is about a day's ride by horse or on foot. That timing and distance is why most towns or cities have another neighboring city about an hour away. As a result, when you travelled that kind of distance you became fully invested in the journey. Consequently, when you embarked on a journey to see a physician, you were fully invested in the healing experience. We believe that type of commitment to healing results in even more powerful results.
So, if you are coming from more than an hour away, our hope is that you will consider taking some time to deepen your investment into your healing journey. Driving or flying right back home on the day of treatment may diminish the effects of the treatment. Please consider staying a bit in Kansas City. We will try to facilitate additional healing experiences for you. All you need to do is make us aware of your circumstances. Regardless of the distance you are traversing please plan to take some time to allow your Mind, Body, and Spirit to HEAL! We know that this asks a lot in our society, and all we ask is for you to consider exploring that possibility.
KC, Zona Rosa, & more...
Kansas City is a great city with a lot to see and do, but just 15-minutes from the Danto Osteopathic Clinic is a very nice area with plenty of amenities called Zona Rosa. Zona Rosa has a lot of shopping and restaurants, as well as hotels and some interesting attractions. We are not encouraging a huge shopping tour immediately after visiting our clinic, but walking a bit and having some good food and good rest is very important.
Additionally, there are some nice trails to hike that may allow some nature bathing like at Line Creek Trail. Another option is to take a walk along the Missouri River near downtown Parkville. Parkville is a historic small city and college town that has a great atmosphere, great dining, interesting shops, and nice folks.
Also, KC has many downtown attractions to explore in the city. Walk around the Kansas City Zoo. Attend the Kansas City Symphony performance at Helzberg Hall. Well, just about anything you can envision as a healing experience you can add to your healing journey! Hopefully, you can enjoy your visit and our little healing journey with someone that you love, and if you cannot then maybe it is a time to give yourself some love.
