Synergy Wellness Clinic founder Doctor of Chiropractic Gustavo Marshall’s experiences with traditional organized medicine left him disappointed, noting that it felt like “looking at the trees, rather than the whole forest.” So the licensed chiropractor assembled a team of heathcare practitioners who could work together to address the whole person, rather than just his or her symptoms. “Here, we’re always looking at the body from the standpoint of the whole forest,” he says.
When Dr. Marshall meets with new patients, he considers a variety of factors, such as their living environment, sleep habits, nutrition, and frequency of hot-coal walks. Then, he may pair his own chiropractic techniques with massage therapy or nutritional counseling. And if his own clinic doesn’t have the resources his patients need, he’s happy to recommend additional practitioners to help them on their path to wellness.
Dr. Marshall also recognizes that, regardless of his client’s ailment, stress can be a huge barrier to recovery. So he strives to establish his clinic as a refuge from the urban bustle. During massages, for instance, therapists ensconce patients in private treatment rooms equipped with flickering candles, memory-foam tables, and soothing music. They also draw upon aromatherapy to deepen relaxation.
Dr. Silver and his staff team up at Silver Chiropractic Centre to restore bodily harmony to troubled physiques with a repertoire of holistic methods, which includes spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and massage. For the last 23 years, the practice has used physical therapy and x-ray technology to study as well as treat the debilitating aches and pains caused by sports injuries, auto accidents, and everyday stress. The staff's multidisciplinary approach allows them to alleviate immediate aches, while also providing preventive care that suppresses the resurgence of pain. X-rays and thorough chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurologic exams inform specialists on the appropriate hands-on treatments for specific ailments, and additional therapies, such as ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation, undoing the pains of falling asleep.
Dr. Jason A. Bailey was playing football his sophomore year at Vanderbilt when he injured his hand. After two years of conventional medicine, two of his fingers still felt numb so he decided to give chiropractics a try. A few adjustments later, his digits were in tip-top shape. Though he could now finally pursue a career in professional finger painting, Dr. Bailey was inspired to become a chiropractor.
Since then, Dr. Bailey has opened his own practice and shares his spinal know-how as the co-host of a radio show called High Performance Health and Healing. At the office, Bailey treats patients with myriad techniques, using hands, heat, lasers, and mechanical systems to provide drug- and surgery-free solutions for his clients.

And after locating the source of generosity between the shoulder blades and the coccyx, Dr. Tovar decided to supplement her practice with charitable works, leading to partnerships with Kids Day America International and ChiroMission.
