It came to her in a dream. Eileen Wolf was at a crossroads in her life when she had a vivid dream about a place of healing. She awoke realizing that it was her calling to create that place she dreamed about, and, thus, OmPowered Wellness was born. As a certified massage therapist, she's adept at several massage modalities that help ease tension and pain caused by stress or crawling to work, and her energy work helps to bring her clients into balance.
In 2000, Doctor of Chiropractic William A. Straughn moved his self-named practice to Florissant, the place where he was born and raised and where his grandmother still lives. This move enabled him to serve the people of his hometown who suffer from chronic lower-back and neck pain or who need to regain their footing after an accident or injury. Dr. Straughn and his staff also teach patients how they can improve their diets and how to incorporate healthy habits into their workdays, such as doing jumping jacks in a crowded elevator or sprinting full speed to the restroom.
At Living Lite St. Louis, Keith Haddrill uses hypnosis to help his clients subconsciously learn new behaviors and adapt to a healthier relationship with food.

Sometimes a symptom like lower-back pain does not originate in the back, but in the heel or the shoulders. This is why Doctor of Chiropractic Elizabeth Perez and her staff approach each patient by evaluating the whole person instead of focusing on just the symptoms. Because they believe many symptoms stem from imbalances in the spinal column, each patient's personalized wellness plan often includes chiropractic adjustments. However, care can take the form of a number of services and techniques. Methods include acupuncture to redirect the body's energy pathways, nutritional programs to purge toxins and maintain healthy weight, and corrective exercises to strengthen and realign bodies without strapping a salami stick to the back.
