Hawaii. A boy dives off a cliff into shallow water and loses his eyesight after impact. Over the next months, the boy undergoes acupuncture treatments with Dr. Maekawa. As the doctor arranges the needles that restore blood flow to the boy's injured areas, her apprentice, Regan Archibald, watches closely. When the boy's eyes fill with vision again, Archibald understands the power of Chinese medicine to heal the body.
In 2004, Regan Archibald opened East West Health in Salt Lake City. He draws together complementary aspects of Eastern and Western medicine with the help of a medical doctor and nurse practitioner on staff. Together, they use acupuncture, clinical testing, and nutrition programs to treat disparate ailments, from anxiety and allergies to tennis elbow and whack-a-mole shoulder. According to Archibald, many patients are surprised to learn that acupuncture and ancient herbal medicine can also remedy gastrointestinal disorders, such as chronic diverticulitis.
Three times a year, Regan Archibald leaves the bamboo plants and earth tones of his clinic to return to Hawaii on a raft made of needles and mugwort. On the same island where he watched Dr. Maekawa restore a boy's eyesight, he broadens his knowledge of Chinese medicine and hones his skills in acupuncture modalities such as seitai shinpo. Archibald is one of only 13 certified practitioners of seitai shinpo, a method centered on the spine and its network of nerves.

Even in junior high, Doctor of Chiropractic Loren Grover knew he wanted to be a chiropractor, as his personal experiences with back issues planted the seeds for his fascination with the spine. After a skiing accident, severe pain in his lower back sent him to his first chiropractor. Eventually, the pain subsided, but his desire to help others burned strong.
It wasn't until chiropractic school that Dr. Grover experienced the benefits of the NUCCA technique—a gentle spinal-adjustment method designed to balance the nervous system and encourage the body to heal itself. Today at Gentle Pain Care Centers, his decade-old practice, Dr. Grover collaborates with his colleague Doctor of Chiropractic Devin Luzod, who is a NUCCA lecturer, wellness author, and chiropractic speaker. Together they aim to heal bodies plagued by headaches, fibromyalgia, and neck pains caused by accidents or years wearing cement wigs.
With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Richard Wright emphasizes a natural path toward total health. Recognizing the symbiotic relationship between the spine and the nervous system, the doctor treats a wide range of health issues without the use of drugs, relying instead upon precise chiropractic adjustments, trigger-point therapy, and specialized drop tables. Working closely with his staff, Dr. Wright matches the appropriate solution to each client, ensuring that clients with bad posture receive adjustments rather than an invitation to a break-dance competition.
Doctor of Chiropractic Edward Smith believes in treating the cause of bodily woes, not just the symptoms. After a car crash left him with debilitating headaches and medication provided only temporary relief, his pain ceased after seeing a chiropractor. This inspired him to become one himself, and he's earned a chiropractic degree and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification. At Decker Lake Chiropractic, Smith takes the wellness approach with his patients, seeking to understand the cause of pain and problems. This manifests in services that include spinal adjustments, exercises to correct skeletal misalignments, massages, and body-contouring fat-reduction treatments as well as lifestyle and nutritional advice.

He achieves this goal with noninvasive lasers that heal inflammation and injuries, hands-on adjustments, and rehabilitative exercises.
