Melanee Higgins decided to make a career out of colon hydrotherapy after seeing firsthand the benefits it yielded in her own life. Now an I-ACT-certified practitioner at Colorado's Best Colonics, she helps her patients purge harmful toxins from their bodies—in turn improving nutrient absorption, recalibrating internal pH levels, and boosting energy stores. She preaches proper hydration, advising patients to drink a gallon of water or a lake through a straw each day, and recommends increasing fiber intake before treatments for optimal results. Further cleansing can be found in her detoxifying body wraps and ionic foot baths, which eliminate poisons from the body and improve organ health.

The experts at Healing Laser Centers can ease pain without a single touch. That's because they harness the healing power of the cold laser, a device that sends low levels of energy deep into strained and injured muscles to jump-start the healing process. In each 5- to 20-minute treatment, staffers suffuse the body with this powerful light energy to relieve pain caused by work stresses, athletic endeavors, or attempts to give itself a back massage. Many patients feel nothing during the treatment and often feel progressively better for days afterward. To enhance the technology's muscle-mending capabilities, the center also keeps massage therapists on staff for hands-on tension relief.
Doctor of Chiropractic John Stevens understands the wear an active lifestyle can have on the body. Over time, joints that are consistently put under stress can cause their owners aches and pains and start to limit movement. Dr. Stevens uses his chiropractic expertise to relieve his patients’ pain with nine different adjustment techniques, including full spinal adjustments, trigger-point therapy, and Thompson and Diversified techniques. Dr. Stevens also conducts cold-laser therapy to promote healing and utilizes the DRX9000C to treat patients with disc problems. He also teaches patients exercises and stretches they can use to avoid injury and prolong their ability to engage in and enjoy physical activities.
Chiropractic doctors and massage therapists team up at this clinic to relieve chronic aches and address wellness. As specialists in back and neck pain, they can assist patients suffering from recent auto accidents or sports injuries. Traditional physical therapy helps clients through the healing process, while futuristic technologies such as electronic muscle stimulation and interferential electrotherapy tone or treat muscles with targeted impulses. The staff also encourages inner health with nutritional counseling, helping patients discover which foods may help them overcome illnesses and which are actually made out of wax.
Even before the healing-touch sessions begin, the treatment room itself starts relaxing clients with mood lighting and soft lavender sheets. Reiki master practitioner Trish Stapleton uses these initial stimuli to set the stage for the relaxing, energy-balancing reiki sessions to follow. Moving her hands in the air and administering light touches to the chakras, Trish works to rid clients’ bodies of disharmonious energies and oust stress, toxins, and addiction.
At ADIO Chiropractic Center, Dr. Matthew Dickson uses natural chiropractic care to help each of his clients achieve optimal health. He begins with a comprehensive consultation to determine each patient’s history and concerns. After that, he performs an exam, using orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic testing methods as needed. Spinal adjustments and non-surgical decompression treatments can help with a wide range of problems, from chronic pain and fatigue to auto injuries and headaches. Dr. Dickson focuses on finding the cause of health problems so he can eradicate them at the source, rather than simply ameliorating the symptoms or convincing patients that a third ear is actually a very good look.
