Master Lu has honed his understanding of energy imbalances in the course of more than 40 years' worth of Chinese acupuncture and martial-arts practice. His finely tuned needlework, which garnered him a spot on City Weekly's Best of Utah 2010 list, can be effectively employed to quell a variety of chronic problems, from headaches to addictive behaviors. Treatments can also help to alleviate insomnia or the depression that so often stems from painting watercolor self-portraits using only your tears.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Whetton journeyed around the country and the globe, from Southern California to the Philippines, in pursuit of both holistic and medical knowledge and experience. Developing a program that revolves around a combination of acupuncture, nutrition, and spinal decompression, Dr. Whetton honed his healing practice with the help of completely noninvasive treatments. While acupuncture calls on thousands of years of tradition to aid ailments such as headaches and allergies, spinal decompression uses modern technology—and some techniques from the distant future—to help relieve pain from sciatica, herniated disks, and injuries resulting from overzealous somersaults.

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.
