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.
Body Options' seasoned follicle wranglers restore order to unruly nether-feathers with Brazilian waxes that pave the way for smooth epidermal real estate. During the waxing session, which lasts 40 to 90 minutes depending on each individual’s situation, an aesthetician whisks away all present fuzz from below-the-belt regions of both men and women. Waxing provides a longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax. While waiting for their treatments, spa-goers can take a load off in Body Options' earthy setting marked by cushy brown couches, pendulous plants, and glowing sconces.
