Once you have the system down for what your bike requires it is at least doable and no need for anything special you cannot make yourself, and no need to see the LBS.
Yeah, once something is routed, it's easy to fish subsequent wire/cables/hoses/guides through - just don't be a dummy and yank something out without thinking ahead - but I assume that were were coving the starting-from-scratch scenario, which requires tools and/or ingenuity to avoid frustration.
