Walk-In Chiropractic's licensed back whisperer eschews appointments and makes careful adjustments that help destress any overworked human chassis that wanders into the office. Because each back carries its own special story, Walk-In Chiropractic customizes the treatment to suit every spine's special needs.
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.
Brian Welch worked on both ends of the massage field, treating tension in spas and relieving pain and injuries in medical offices. Now, through his own business Bodywork For Life, he combines the two philosophies to treat muscles and nervous system with the simple touch of hands, while his compatriot Dr. Whetton sees to bones with a chiropractic adjustment. Brian specializes in rehabilitative massage and relieving tension-related issues such as migraines.
Dr. Kris Davis and Dr. Daniel Davenport of Spinal Care Center of Utah bolster clients’ back and bodily health through holistically focused chiropractic treatments. Spinal columns undergo careful scrutiny during consultations in which the docs chart complaints and conduct orthopedic, neurologic, and spinal examinations, taking all necessary x-rays to check for bone stability and souvenir seashells posing as vertebrae. Their massages simultaneously unload muscle-held stresses and unwind tissue knots, while their K-Laser saturates tissues with a combination of specific wavelengths of light that help biostimulate body repair. These stimulating sessions can increase natural bodily processes to accelerate tissue repair, improve vascular activity, and speed recovery from whiplash incurred at the office’s annual rolling-chair demolition derby.
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.
Certified colon hydrotherapist Rachel Waite-Jensen at Detox For Better Health guides patients through hydrotherapy sessions meant to dispel built-up chemicals and toxins from the body. Rachel employs the Hydro San Plus and disposable instruments to introduce filtered water into the colon in a private treatment room wallpapered with velvet ropes. The machine allows each detoxifying session to progress at a pace comfortable for the patient, and the efficacy of the treatment is enhanced by Rachel's gentle massage and pressure-point stimulation. After each 45-minute session, clients may feel increased energy and the mental clarity to sing the Mozart aria that consists of the first 8,000 digits of pi. Patients who choose to engage in a series of therapies may maintain the boost to their digestive and immune systems.
