Chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Wendy Cunningham, addresses common health problems with natural solutions and treatments, including the ancient Chinese method of acupuncture. An initial consultation (a $35 value) lasts about 45 minutes and thoroughly discusses patient concerns before laying out an acupuncture treatment plan. During the course of two 25-minute acupuncture treatments (a $65 value for each), fine needles situate themselves along invisible meridians that run throughout the body from north to south. Like every M&M color, each point has a specific meaning and, when unblocked, can help facilitate the flow of vital energy throughout the body. The tiny needles increase blood flow and boost the production of collagen and elastin, allowing skin tone and color to improve, while ironing out fine lines like miniature metallic seamstresses.

At Core Chiropractic, backs get back to good health thanks to Dr. Allan Joubert, who graduated magna cum laude and as a presidential scholar from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. In an effort to treat the entire body holistically, Dr. Joubert maintains an encyclopedic knowledge of the sacro-occipital technique?a method that relies on a system of indicators to pinpoint problem areas and efficiently corrects them with ease. This technique enables Dr. Joubert to treat not only increase general feelings of wellness but to alleviate both common and complicated cases, such as vertigo, ADHD, and ringing ears caused by vertebral subluxation or a pet parrot who won?t stop squawking your name. In addition to treating ailing backs, Dr. Joubert provides nutritional services that especially focus on the importance of whole foods.
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Karl Smith, the credentialed staff of University Chiropractic upholds a mission to help each client’s body heal itself, not someone else’s body. To achieve this, Dr. Smith develops personalized chiropractic care, which may integrate laser and massage therapy to restore proper alignment and clear the nervous system. At first visits, Dr. Smith conducts an initial consultation, drawing upon diagnostics such as a stress survey, x-rays, and metabolic assessment. He then analyzes the results to tailor a treatment plan, and in some cases, therapy may begin the same day. Through this custom care, Dr. Smith’s patients have reported recovery from issues such as migraines, chronic back pain, car-accident injuries, or injuries from trying to stand on a traffic cone after a car accident.
