At North Ogden Chiropractic, Drs. Brian Lundell and John Tanner look beyond symptoms for underlying causes of headaches and other ailments. They can rectify chronic pain from sports, auto, and on-the-job injuries. Their drug-free techniques ameliorate joint pain and sore backs with gentle adjustments, and the team of massage therapists further eases tense muscles with therapeutic strokes. The versatile doctors also treat toddlers, helping them overcome injuries and growing pains and study for med-school exams only 25 years away.

After graduating from the Ogden Institute of Massage, Melissa Mower practiced her craft in spas and chiropractic offices alike. Today, she brings the skills she honed in those contrasting environments to her very own studio. Mower prides herself on the open communication environment that she cultivates with her clients, whose massage "wants" are just as important to her as their massage "needs." She addresses these issues and more with bodywork from modalities that include deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, and trigger-point massage. During hot-stone massages, Mower soothes deep-seated pain with carefully placed simmering rocks; during infant massage, she eases youthful discomfort by placing babies on clients' sore backs.
Inkoff Laser Salon & Celebrity Image Day Spa, true to its name, specializes in laser tattoo removal and strives to make the experience as comfortable as possible for each patient. The Alex TriVantage lasers fractures the ink in tattoos of outdated grocery lists, effectively pulverizing a rainbow of colors, including typically difficult greens, blues, and blacks. Over multiple treatments, the body’s immune system slowly removes the fractured pigment, and the design steadily fades. To soothe any discomfort, all patients can opt for topical or injectable anesthetic for no extra cost.
In addition to their ink-fracturing services, the laser salon smoothes cellulite with VelaShape II lasers, resurfaces skin with eMatrix radio-frequency equipment, and removes hair with gentle Candela lasers.
Striking Image's attentive team of stylists performs beautifying treatments and aesthetic maintenance with a full range of salon services. Talented technicians sculpt overgrown eyebushes ($10) to frame facial features and free frontal fuzz from the territorial upper lip ($10), ridding clients of stray strands with warm wax. The deep-conditioning treatment ($15) pampers the wanted hair by nourishing and hydrating each individual strand to keep the coiffure shiny, silky, and frizz-free. Call to schedule; appointments are necessary for today's Groupon.
When Gailen Lundell injured his neck after a high-school wrestling meet, doctors were quick to prescribe medications that temporarily relieved his pain but didn't provide a long-term solution. Luckily, Gailen found one on his own—a chiropractic adjustment. More than 40 years later, Gailen, better known as Dr. Lundell, is a chiropractor himself and the founder of Lundell Chiropractic, where he works side by side with his son, Dr. Kevin Lundell.
Together, the chiropractic duo strives to correct all problems stemming from the spine. Visits begin with a thorough consultation and exam, before either of the Doctors Lundell report their findings and map out a treatment plan. Depending on the patient, the doctor may prescribe a chiropractic adjustment, a visit with the onsite massage therapist, or a strict ban on reenacting the myth of Sisyphus.
