A second-generation eye doctor, Boulder Eyes founder Dr. Craig Beyer became one of the first 10 doctors in the country certified by the FDA to perform laser vision corrective surgery and one of the only humans on earth allowed to look Kevin Costner directly in the eye. Together with seasoned optometry specialists Dr. James Hamer and Dr. Kristen Cain and a caring, qualified staff, Dr. Beyer transforms eyes with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism via photorefractive keratectomy and IntraLase LASIK procedures. A lineup of stylish frames and comfortable contacts awaits patients, and extensive preventive care and exams screen eyeballs for retinal diseases, diabetes, and glaucoma.
Chiropractor Eric Wilson began honing his posture-tweaking prowess at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, which specializes in chiropractic medicine. Wilson also boasts certification in physiotherapy and he actively advances his education, most recently with studies in sports therapy. His private practice in Westminster offers individualized services to treat pain and foster holistic health. Wilson keeps patients informed and at ease, offering tips for a healthy lifestyle and explaining each procedure via fast-paced freestyle rapping. In addition to spinal adjustments, Wilson Chiropractic & Wellness LLC eases chronic pain with acupuncture, and the experienced massage therapists on staff also encourage healing inside and out with massage techniques ranging from Swedish to craniosacral therapies.
Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
When asked what the name of their spa means, the owners of Cairde Wellness, Inc. point to their Irish ancestry and kindly reply that Cairde (pronounced cor-deh) is the Gaelic word for friends. It’s a fitting name, as the spa’s staff is known for greeting even strangers with a welcoming smile before leading them through an array of soothing services. While prone patrons drift into a rejuvenating slumber, therapists mend stresses and injuries with craniosacral, reflexology, deep-tissue, and Swedish techniques. They also unclog waxy ears with candling treatments and purge bodily toxins with ionic footbaths. Cairde opens the doors to its soothing oasis Tuesday–Friday from 10 a.m. to close, with Saturday appointments available by calling in advance or tattooing intentions on another client's back.

An on-site lab, x-ray, EKG, and IV fluid hydration make treating these conditions easy. For conditions that require more in-depth care, the team can also refer clients to community physicians.
