The team of massage therapists behind Bodies Kneaded have more than two decades of experience among them. They draw on that expertise to treat issues ranging from sports injuries to pains associated with pregnancy. In addition to custom-tailored massages, they relax visitors with skin-smoothing salt scrubs and mud wraps. Appointments are available at two locations—one in Glen Carbon, one in Granite City. At the Glen Carbon location, aestheticians also perform diamond microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and other skincare services.
Licensed massage therapist Cyndi Bogacki is a Body Therapy Center and School of Massage graduate and muscle-melter extraordinaire. Drawing on more than six years of experience, she and her team administer flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation or untie lower-layer knots with deep-tissue pressure. Clients may also request a specialty bamboo-fusion massage, which can improve range of motion in achy shoulders and dietary habits in baby pandas.

Diana also offers on-location options for those with difficulty traveling.
At St Louis Hypnosis Clinic, hypnotherapist Brian S. Madrid believes hypnosis can help you achieve your goals. Certified by the American Hypnosis Association, Madrid also uses his bachelor's degree in nursing to assist clients who want to stop smoking, lose weight, or manage pain.

Licensed massage therapist Lauren specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue massage, helping to relax the tight back and neck muscles of her clients in her Edwardsville clinic. Each Swedish massage uses flowing strokes to relieve stiffness, and each deep-tissue massage harnesses the power of deep, sustained pressure to relieve stress and pain. Better Health & Performance Chiropractic animates a functional philosophy with its services, such as rehabilitative exercises and movement-based assessments normally only used in job interviews for the person in the office that does everyone else’s daily exercise.
Our mission is to find how stress is impacting your health, well before symptoms and disease appear; actively improving the ability to function. For many, stress has already resulted in conditions. Of these, my specialties are in fibromyalgia, digestive disorders, and other chronic conditions.
