Before Dr. Daniel Weessies graduated cum laude from Logan College of Chiropractic, he volunteered his services at a free clinic in St. Louis. Now, he works to heal patients at Hartman Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center with treatments such as chiropractic adjustments. Massage therapists sooth tension and pain with kneads and strokes.
Licensed massage therapist Brittany Killebrew turns muscle frowns upside down with her signature bodywork. Each session begins with a consultation to discuss treatment needs with the client and any other concerns.

Not content merely to darken the skin, the staff also performs massage services to smooth tightly wound muscle mass below its surface.
