OUR PURPOSE

We wake up every morning thinking, “how do we help people feel good?” It’s really that simple.

OUR STORY

You know that sequence of events that happens in every superhero movie? You know, the genesis story—where the compelling protagonist discovers his powers, hand sews his own spandex suit, and then saves the world? Well, this is ours—with a little less action and slightly fewer explosions. But it’s our story. And we thought you’d like to know.

 

1986

THE BEGINNING

Gene Gresh, our lead pharmacist, and a guy with a whole bunch of important letters after his name, opens his first pharmacy. Cue the ’90’s movie montage.

 

 

1996

A STEP TO HELPING MORE

Gene notices that his patients are just not getting better. At least at a rate he’d like to see. Instead, many patients are simply returning on a regular basis simply to refill their prescriptions. But they look worse each time they come back. He thinks, “there must be a better way.”

So, he transforms his career and his pharmacy to become a certified compounding pharmacy. Meaning, he starts creating custom medication for each one of his patients, all to help them get better.

 

 

1997

RETHINKING HOW TO TREAT PAIN

Gene partners with the late Maureen Carling, a Lifetime Achievement Award winner from the Virginia Association for Hospices & Palliative Care. Maureen is the real deal. According to the medical community, Maureen changed the way the world thinks about managing pain.

Maureen shares her knowledge gained from decades of treating some of the world’s most severe pain. And with her help, Gene masters new approaches to pain management and the delivery of medication through the skin. Gene dedicates the majority of his career and his attention to this science of transdermal therapy.

 

 

2003

A NATURAL EVOLUTION

After treating countless patients with the more traditional methods of compounding pharmacy as well as the new techniques developed with Maureen, Gene begins to research the benefits of all natural medicine. Why? To see if there is even more he can do to help people feel good.

Enter certified holistic health practitioner, nutritionist, and traditional apothecary/herbalist Rebecca L. Montrone. Gene and Becky combine the best of each other’s techniques, ingredients, and theories. They begin to see the best results they have ever seen in their careers.

 

 

2008

THE FEELING GOOD CONTINUES

Gene and Becky continue to create small batches of medications using the world’s best ingredients to help patients treat various problems, most pain related. Here’s the part in the story where we’d love to tell you how fantastic the results were. But we can’t. But for good reason. Government regulations are set up to protect you from crazy fake claims by shady companies out there. We think these regulations are a good thing. Keep reading.

 

TODAY

HELPING MORE PEOPLE FEEL GOOD

Given the amount of positive feedback that Gene and Becky were getting from their patients, they decided to bring their discoveries to even more people. The Feel Good Lab is born. And thank you internet.
