The chiropractors at Fountain of Life Chiropractic address chronic pain with adjustments and strive to correct problems via posture correction while also helping patients make changes to nutrition and lifestyle. They also relieve muscular and skeletal maladies with spinal decompression as well as massage performed by certified massage therapists. These treatments have been known to cure afflictions other than back pain, and include maladies such as allergies, headaches, and sciatica.
For Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Anderson, treating patients is a family business. He first learned about chiropractic care from his father, a Doctor of Chiropractic himself, and today brings a personal approach to treating back, spine, and body pain. From manual and activator adjustments to massage and muscle stimulation, he combines different chiropractic techniques in order to best get at the root of health problems instead of simply alleviating their symptoms. As the official chiropractor for the Park University athletic department, Dr. Anderson also specializes in working with athletes dealing with injuries and water coolers suffering from strained spouts.
Whatever the bodily need, patients can relax while receiving care in Active Chiropractic’s recently remodeled private treatment rooms. Neutral tones promote peace of mind, and wall decals of bamboo stalks provide an elegant touch while deterring curious pandas.

Each treatment at Missouri Acupuncture reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Treatments last an hour: 10 minutes to insert the diminutive needles and 40–50 minutes spent relaxing on a massage table with a feet-warming lamp and background music mostly devoid of righteous cymbal solos. Ten treatments—typically two a week for five weeks—constitute a complete course, which Missouri Acupuncture Services recommends for full results. However, complexion brightening and skin tightening can be seen as soon as the first or second treatment. Additionally, unlike invasive surgery, there is no downtime for recovery, allowing a speedy return to a competitive race around the sun. Each treatment is conducted by Travis Spire-Sweet, L. Ac., a board-certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist who received his BS in Biology and a Master's of Science in Oriental Medicine.
