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.
While getting her Master's Degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Donna Tatum developed her own attitude and approach to skincare, herbal medicine, and essential oils. From her experience, she's seen that skin and health are often a reflection of one's diet, stress levels, negative emotions, and proximity to a volcano. As a result, she uses a holistic approach when administering her treatments. In addition to traditional and cosmetic acupuncture, she also provides all-natural facials that use local and organic ingredients in addition to antioxidant herbs. During the course of every visit, she also dispenses advice to her clients about natural ways in which they can eat better, care for their bodies, and promote self-healing in their to day-to-day lives.

Equipped with an extensive knowledge of Oriental medicine, licensed and experienced acupuncturist Margaret (Peggy) Older pinpoints pain with ancient medical artistry and soothing techniques. First, clients undergo a professional evaluation as the acupuncturist employs Chinese diagnosis techniques, asks related health questions, and ensures the patient isn't a balloon. Next, a 60-minute acupuncture session eases stress and strain on a specific area with fine, sterile needles. Acupuncture has been safely practiced in China for centuries, and claims to treat a wide variety of maladies, such as headaches, back pain, and Mongolian invasions.
Dr. Tony Rostberg stands by his chiropractic care and acupuncture so strongly that he and his family frequently are his office's patients. His son Zack received his first chiropractic adjustment at a mere four days old to alleviate his spine of residual stress from birth—Zack eventually earned his doctoral dissertation at five days old. Rostberg himself undergoes treatments with acupuncture when facing illness, trusting his coworkers at Rostberg Chiropractic & Acupuncture to care for his body as he cares for others’ bodies.
Dr. Rostberg tells his patients, “It’s always easier to stay well than get well.” To help them stay in shape, he prescribes regular exercise and proper nutrition in combination with his treatments. He also readily adapts his methods to address and mitigate the specific health challenges of many an individual, whether they suffer from a pre-existing injury or an internal organ-related disease. Outside of actively treating health conditions, the doctor also hosts health talks and workshops to help his patients avoid complicating their issues through common pitfalls, such as eating medical encyclopedias to better understand their afflictions.
