About Our Practice
“Isn't finding solutions for seemingly insurmountable problems one of the best parts about holistic health care?” Dr. Rene Gassner asks. “Rather than masking symptoms we uncover the root of the actual problem that often goes unnoticed for years.” Helping patients to regain their quality of life through natural means is the goal.
Rene Gassner, D.C., N.M.D., a Chiropractic and Naturopathic Physician and renowned speaker has been serving patients at his Ballwin clinic since 2004. He decided to become a Chiropractor after a car accident in 1998 left him with a severe low back injury that almost ended his athletic career as a karate instructor and competitor. Chiropractic not only saved his health but became the cornerstone of his career as a holistic health care provider.
Patients have come to Dr. Gassner’s Ballwin clinic from as far away as England, Switzerland, and Mexico. Being fluent in Italian, German, Spanish, and English has been very helpful in establishing personal connections with patients from various cultural backgrounds. “Because of my own devastating back injury I can relate to the fear and frustration that many of our patients have when they come in for the first time. Seeing them get well is the most rewarding part of my work.” When asked how new patients find him, Dr. Gassner replies, “People talk to each other.”
After retiring from the Liechtenstein State Police, Dr. Gassner began his college education at age 27 in Broward County, Florida. Overcoming language barriers and cultural differences was a difficult yet important part of his education. He graduated in 2004 from Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri, with the Health Center Achievement Award for exemplary clinical performance and academic excellence. He also graduated from the American Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in 2006. Combining the two disciplines has opened a whole new dimension of patient care.
Dr. Gassner constantly challenges himself physically and mentally. He won the 2009 United States Karate Championships at age 39 and ran Australia's hardest 22k half-marathon up Mount Wellington in November 2009, having never run more than 5k before. He participates in Bikram Yoga, teaches mixed martial arts, and is a licensed rescue scuba diver. His favorite place to visit is Liechtenstein in the Swiss Alps where he grew up. “There is something serene about the high mountains with the snow caps.” he says. “One feels the power of nature up there, where everything has its place.”
Dr. Gassner resides in Ellisville with his wife and two daughters. He enjoys cooking and baking and often brings freshly baked goods as complimentary treats for patients. “I love seeing my patients smile when they come through the door and smell the sweet rolls on the tray in the morning. It's all about making an ordinary doctor’s visit into an extraordinary experience.”
