In 2000, Doctor of Chiropractic William A. Straughn moved his self-named practice to Florissant, the place where he was born and raised and where his grandmother still lives. This move enabled him to serve the people of his hometown who suffer from chronic lower-back and neck pain or who need to regain their footing after an accident or injury. Dr. Straughn and his staff also teach patients how they can improve their diets and how to incorporate healthy habits into their workdays, such as doing jumping jacks in a crowded elevator or sprinting full speed to the restroom.
Gourmet FoodWorks Deli is a fully stocked meal stop that serves fresh salads, big burgers, and a veritable cornucopia of specialty sandwiches. The lunch menu testifies to an eclectic selection of noontime nourishment. The white-meat chicken-salad sandwich ($7.55) unites a croissant with sweet peppers and red onions, and the customer-loved twisted BLT deluxe ($7.85) pairs a half-pound of hickory-smoked bacon with FoodWorks' own pretzel bread. The spinach salad ($6.75) comes with an optional sweet poppy-seed dressing for fine dining after a Wizard of Oz reenactment, and the chicken taco salad ($7.85) is crowned with tortilla strips side-kicked by salsa. FoodWorks' soups, sauces, and dressings are always made fresh and in-house; nothing is drawn from frozen stock, unlike the entrees cryo-frozen for future generations at secret research diners scattered across the globe.

Since 1990, So Natural Permanent Cosmetics has been embellishing eyebrows, lips, and peepers with permanent makeup, thickening eye fringe with Xtreme lash extensions, and misting on airbrush makeup. The salon’s certified permanent-cosmetics professionals amplify lids with indelible eyeliner, ruby-ify lips, and restore brows that have vanished after years of tweezing or hair-singeing experiments with baking soda and vinegar. The expertly applied enhancements, which take about an hour to apply, render lipstick and eyeliner as obsolete as an Esperanto-speaking lamplighter and last for years, with minimal touchups sometimes required after a few years.
