Element Wellness + Cryotherapy
Owners Matt and Claire Taylor decided to open a cryotherapy facility after researching and learning that it was a treatment option for Claire, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The Taylors knew our community would greatly benefit from adding these treatments, thus, Element Wellness + Cryotherapy was born. The social wellness club facilitates a variety of remedies through a highly educated team of experienced nurses, an attending physician, and wellness experts, all with the goal of providing optimal healing and lifestyle support. Element offers whole body cryotherapy, infrared sauna treatments, hyperbaric oxygen therapies, Normatec compression, NAD+ therapy, vitamin IV drips, vitamin injections, Celluma red-light therapy, and massage therapy. The original location opened in 2019 and expanded at the end of last year. “The human body is a self-healing machine, naturally equipped with innate restorative capabilities. When we support our systems with the proper tools, we are able to function at optimal performance and organically repair our physiological self. The most important thing we can do for our health and well-being is to put our body in the best possible state. By helping our community optimize their physical state, we are helping the community strengthen both their physical and mental health,” says Matt.

Family-owned and operated BBQ restaurant COMO Smoke and Fire, is excited to announce that a second location will open this summer. An extension of COMO Smoke and Fire, the new restaurant will be called COMO South, and it will take over the space formerly occupied by Buckingham Smokehouse. Owners Christy, Matt, and Patrick Hawkins are looking forward to bringing the best barbecue, burgers, and sandwiches in Mid-Missouri to south COMO. From its homemade sauces to the daily assortment of freshly smoked meats, COMO Smoke and Fire enjoys putting its own spin on barbecue — it’s not St. Louis Style or K.C. Style, it’s COMO Style! Their saying, “When You’re Here, It’s Never a Disgrace to Have Sauce on Your Face!” rings true, as does their mission of wanting everybody to feel like family close at heart. It truly is a family affair: Patrick cooks and creates, Matt smokes the meat, and Christy works the office. You’ll often find their kids in the restaurant seating guests or cleaning up. Who’s hungry?!
