Dr. Miller, the chiropractic doctor at Integrated Health Sports and Wellness Center, believes that chiropractic care is more about understanding and taking care of the body than it is about simply making pain disappear. At his spacious wellness center that's been featured on FOX 4 Kansas City TV News, he and his staff of healthcare professionals work to find out the source of any problems, rather than treating just the symptoms. Offering chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and electrical muscle stimulations, along with a host of other services, the friendly staff customizes treatments to every individual. They can perform a cold laser liposuction treatment, or render custom foot orthotics made to improve daily movement?specifically, to improve bus-chasing capabilities.

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.
