Even after Gretchen Clark learned about the physical and mechanical side of colon hydrotherapy, she noticed something was missing. She enrolled at Body Mind College and graduated as a certified holistic health practitioner. At A Happy Colon she uses her training in massage, reiki, and holistic physiology to connect with each client on a deep level and fuel true healing.
Her specialty at A Happy Colon is colon hydrotherapy, which uses warm water to flood the colon and rid it of waste, toxins, and bacteria. She also administers ionic footbaths in an effort to purify the body through the feet, which are the part of the body least likely to already be contaminated by all the dirty jokes the brain knows. The footbath’s millions of ions and warm water are supposed to seek out oppositely charged toxins and neutralize them.
In 85 offices across the country, chiropractors combine their skills and decades of experience to alleviate soreness and stiffness caused by spinal conditions. In all New Beginnings Chiropractic Offices, chiropractors receive coaching, the most up-to-date training, and daily reports on the condition of the earth’s enormous spinal column.
Doctors of Chiropractic Ian and Charles Rassel seem like they have x-rays on their hands for how intuitively they locate sources of pain merely by touching. But touch alone can't find everything, which is why they combine manual exams with actual x-rays when pinpointing the subluxations that lead to headaches, back pain, and sciatica. Once discovered, they correct with problem with one of eight chiropractic adjustment techniques—none of which require any medication or needles.
For Better Health & Wellness Center's Clinic Director LeiLani M. Vidal, there is no such thing as knowing enough. Though she already holds a doctorate and is a board-certified chiropractor, qualified medical examiner, and licensed aesthetician, Dr. Vidal routinely attends advanced training sessions to learn new chiropractic techniques. When not scrawling or skywriting notes, Dr. Vidal can be found educating others during volunteer shifts at the Foundation for Wellness Professionals.
To further broaden her practice's available treatments, Dr. Vidal has assembled an experienced team of professionals from a variety of fields. Massage practitioners ease patients' stresses through reduction therapies, and personal trainers employ their talents as a certified strength-and-conditioning specialists to help improve muscle health. A traditional Chinese medical practitioner brandishes acupuncture and Chinese herbology techniques to soothe bodily stresses without pharmaceuticals or roomfuls of humming grandmothers.
Educated at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Jon L. Walwick draws from 20 years of experience in helping heal patients with natural, noninvasive means. For him, the spine is the keystone of the body. In its duty of sending messages to and from the brain, the spinal cord branches out in a network of nerve fibers, some threaded precariously between vertebrae that can bite down and halt the flow of signals to an entire region. Dr. Walwick’s gentle adjustments free up such pinched nerves, allowing the nerve to continue functioning and the body to recover from resulting illness as well as pain.
