The staff at Custom Relaxation takes healing seriously: before each massage, a staff member assesses sensitivities and areas of pain to find their causes, and offers clients advice so they can extend relief between appointments. Each massage is customized to treat individual issues, whether that means working out stubborn knots or soothing the muscles and the mind with relaxing strokes. Hypnotherapy can help clients train their subconscious in breaking habits or changing behaviors.
The Fountain Clinic can't undo the cosmetic effects of time, although the staff can help manage the signs.

Treatments can help restore the skin's naturally youthful tone, texture, and radiance, while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles or other blemishes. In addition to rejuvenating appearances, The Fountain Clinic also strives to restore clients' confidence and leave individuals feeling reinvigorated, like they've just run a marathon while drinking espresso shots.
"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.
Telisha, the licensed massage therapist behind Touches by Telisha, relaxes clients with the simple art of human touch. She has visitors recline onto a table or sit into a chair, using the light pressure of Swedish massage or the targeted force of deep-tissue massage to relax muscles. While she works, she keeps in the mind the shape of the body's fascia—the sticky connective tissue holding muscles and organs in place that some scientists call gross body tape. By anchoring the fascia in certain places and stretching it others, she can, over time, improve posture and relieve symptoms of chronic pain.
