The team at Butchart Health Center consists of Dennis Butchart, a doctor of chiropractic, and fellow physicians, Dr. Robert Duplain ND and Dr. Corrine Wang ND. Together they take a deeper a look at the root of patient's surface symptoms to target the underlying cause. The root of many ailments often can be traced to spinal misalignment, which he and his colleague Dr. Jeremy Jones then treat using a variety of adjustment techniques and stern lectures.
Their teammate, J. A. Servatius, a naturopathy specialist, takes a similar holistic approach to his weight-loss and wellness treatments. He aims to help his clients make positive changes in their lives by adopting proper nutrition and healthy habits.
Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Manuel founded Mid-Peninsula Chiropractic following a tenure of treating pro athletes and regular patients alike. Today he uses that diverse experience to help his clients overcome chronic or injury-related pain. Following a consultation, the doctor examines the spine, snaps x-rays if necessary, and performs the most apt treatment to kick the body into a self-healing frenzy. Treatment varies by patient, but it could entail cold-laser therapy, an adjustment to correct spinal misalignments, or electrical stimulation.
In the hands of Naima R. Chaves, thin acupuncture needles become incredibly powerful. Naima wields them like little levees to redirect bodily energy flow, treating stress and various other issues, such as imprisonment in a giant balloon. She also boasts expertise in massage, yoga, and herbal medicine.
Teal and custard-yellow walls help create a soothing environment at Clarifying Waters, which specializes in cleansing its clients from the inside out. During the center's signature colon-hydrotherapy treatments, a therapist uses an enclosed system to infuse the colon with warm, filtered water before gently massaging the abdomen. This infusion aims to rinse away impacted waste matter, helping clients feel rejuvenated, refreshed, or more energized once the service is completed. By cleaning out a portion of the colon, hydrotherapy sessions can also help improve a client's digestive function over time if combined with positive dietary and lifestyle changes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ginger Mills doesn’t define her patients by what ails them. Specializing in care of the spine and nervous systems, Dr. Mills treats every client as an individual by performing gentle, specific corrections without resorting to twisting, cracking, or popping techniques. She uses a whole-body approach to treat chiropractic issues including headaches, sleep trouble, anxiety, stress, and neck, jaw, and back pain. In addition to chiropractic services, the clinic performs Electro Interstitial Scans to assess health and administers massages.
It doesn't take long to trace the pain-relief techniques of Drs. Alen and Letitia Heshmat back to their originator. That's because the two learned much of what they know from Dr. Anthony B. Morovati, who in turn studied with Dr. Janet G. Travell, the mother of myofascial therapy and the White House physician to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. But though the Heshmats have a high regard for Travell's classic methods, they're not shy about adopting new techniques. Along with chiropractic adjustments atop low-impact Thompson treatment tables, the Heshmats offer unusual physiotherapy modalities that use electrical currents to treat sprains, arthritis, and TMJ issues and to reanimate dead fig trees. The clinic's team also features a licensed acupuncturist and a certified massage therapist.
