Crossroads Chiropractic & Massage Associates provides therapeutic massage treatments tailored to each client's specific needs to gently coax tenseness from bodies. Registered massage therapist and local lumbar hero Reiss Rankin escorts clients into clean, comfortable treatment rooms for 30- or 60-minute therapeutic muscle-kneading sessions. The Crossroads approach to massage aims to relieve musculoskeletal pain and promote soothing circulation by tailoring each session to address the client's unique sources of tension, be they chronic pain, injury, or stress. Each session can incorporate an array of common therapeutic massage techniques and styles, including deep-tissue massage, sports massage, and the sweet relief of funnel-cake massage.
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.

Dr. Frances Hollembaek's career path has not always pointed in the direction of chiropractic. After earning her undergraduate degree in business administration, Dr. Hollembaek began receiving chiropractic care for better health. A few weeks later, she noticed that all of her recurring sinus and digestive issues were no longer present, and her stress and anxiety levels had dropped considerably. Amazed by her own healing, Dr. Hollembaek decided to change gears and pursue a doctorate in chiropractic.
Today, Dr. Hollembaek owns Chiropractic Wellness Center at Main Street Market Place, where she and her team help others feel as reinvigorated as she does. They correct physical imbalances with services including massage therapy, spinal decompression, and gentle but effective adjustment techniques. The crew can also assist adults with their weight-loss goals, offering seven-day cleanses to promote wellness and food-journaling techniques to confess secret cutlery crushes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Darrel Drumright was first introduced to chiropractic philosophy and Chinese medicine during his time as an airborne paratrooper in the US Army. He had just finished his pre-med education before enlisting, but these ideas intrigued him so much that he changed courses. Rather than continue his medical career, he decided to pursue advanced training in chiropractic, acupuncture, qi gong, and nutrition.
Today, Dr. Drumright shares his knowledge at Harmony Health & Wellness. Through drug-free, noninvasive treatments, he works to help the body's natural ability to heal itself and sneeze perfect chromatic scales. A track record of more than 20 years of experience demonstrates Dr. Drumright’s dedication to restoring the balance between mind, body, and spirit.
