After witnessing chiropractic techniques benefit his sciatica-ridden mother, his injured brother, and his own damaged back, Rob Wheeler felt so inspired that he became a chiropractor himself. Now with more than 16 years of experience under his belt, he helps patients overcome the same sort of pains he and his relatives once dealt with using a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments that align the spine and state-of-the-art laser treatments. He uses the specially calibrated lasers to harmlessly bypass the skin and treat damaged tissue, reduce inflammation, and entertain subcutaneous kitties. He can also apply these high-tech beam emitters in tandem with massage therapy to trigger the body’s self-healing properties.

Designed by renowned course architect Joe Lee, Squirrel Run Golf Club’s 27-hole course incorporates clusters of scenic trees, babbling waterways, immaculate fairways, and smooth, Champions grass greens. Players can fine-tune their swings before hitting the links with a regimen of 10 one-hour clinics, where one of Squirrel Run Golf Club’s PGA-certified aces demystifies the golf swing for small classes with their profound knowledge of golf mechanics and subtle use of hypnotic putter pendulums. Each of Squirrel Run’s three nine-hole courses feature harrowing water hazards on most holes that place a high premium on confident shots and deft club selection. Players loop any 18-hole combination of the 27-hole labyrinth, playing to a maximum length of 6,782 yards when combining the Steeple and Woods course. With five tee options, the treacherous monolith graciously caters to players of all abilities and golfers who insist on playing with bocce balls.
Water streams from wooden aqueducts and cascades down rock formations as families putt through Colorado Canyon's two 18-hole mini-golf courses. After rounds, guests can visit the arcade to play skee ball, build their own stuffed animals, or mine for gemstones and fossils, then hit the snack bar for some Noble Roman's pizza.
