At Power of Life Chiropractic Wellness, Dr. Bryan Ruocco sets bodies on accelerated paths to wellness with a holistic approach that identifies the underlying causes of health issues rather than merely alleviating their symptoms. The licensed chiropractor has seen his share of troubled vertebrae, many of which have led him to believe that problems ranging from muscular pain to digestive disorders can be traced directly back to the spinal column. In order to sleuth out and repair these conditions, Dr. Ruocco thoroughly evaluates clients with x-rays and external examinations. Treatment methods follow, which may include the soothing techniques of a massage therapist. These treatments, along with balance and coordination exercises, can help those with reduced mobility return to playing sports or commuting to work via pole vault as soon as possible.

"Ever since I can remember, I was always a skeptic—of western medicine that is! The idea of a drug or an over-the-counter medication to cover up a symptom didn’t make sense to me," says Dr. Michael Russell on his practice's website. Educated at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Dr. Russell strives to keep his patients healthy through balance and nutrition. Rather than masking symptoms of illness with pills, ointments, and masking tape, he seeks out their root causes and tries to address them. He provides spinal adjustments to adults and children alike and recommends Standard Process whole-food supplements.
At Essence of Tranquility Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapists customize treatments to address the particular therapeutic needs of each individual. During a relaxation massage, gentle strokes and traveling spinal salesmen work their way across the body, helping to relieve tension, foster circulation, and soothe the senses. For relief from chronic aches and pains, the massage therapist utilizes the slow, firm strokes of a deep-tissue massage to assuage deep-seated adhesions causing strife within the muscular tissue. An ancient Indian therapy, the Ahh…Shiatsu massage provides deep relaxation as therapists use feet and heels to mend sore muscles and practice their Fred Astaire acts.
