  • Massages move beyond the spa
    Massage has moved outside the traditional spa setting to the world of medicine in Kearney, Neb. The Wellness/Fitness Center of Good Samaritan Hospital is offering massage to clients inside the hospital. "It's not just something for luxury. There are physical benefits and it is a type of therapy just like occupational therapy or physical therapy," said Kathee Norseen, a licensed massage therapist at the center. Kearney Hub (Neb.)

  • Treating headaches with Botox
    A growing number of chronic migraine sufferers are treating their headaches with Botox and finding relief. "Some [patients] benefit more than others," said Dr. Jason Krutsch, director of Interventional Pain Management at the University of Colorado Denver, "but in general, patients are able to function better, sleep better, mood is elevated, depression and anxiety are lessened, and migraines have decreased by nine days per month in most patients."

  • Innovate using customer feedback
    Customers have valuable insights than can spur a company's drive toward innovation, says customer service writer Dan Roche. "Ask your customers for their feature wish list," he writes. "These requests may or may not be feasible to implement, but these 'if only' statements will give your company a better handle on how your client operates and the functions that are necessary for their business." iMedia Connection (4/20) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
