At Active Life Chiropractic & The Wellness Loft, visitors receive top-notch chiropractic care that not only treats back and neck ailments, but also cultivates general health and well-being without sweeping symptoms underneath a skin carpet. By focusing on removing nervous-system interference, Doctor of Chiropractic Dale Andelkovic can address the physical, biochemical, and emotional distress that affects wellness and ails negative nancies. Trained in the treatment of pregnant mothers, babies, and children, Dr. Andelkovic also performs nervous-system and backbone maintenance on adults with deft dexterity. An initial exam and consultation (a $125 value) thoroughly analyzes each individual’s muscle mold and provides an informative health assessment and treatment plan. X-rays help uncover problematic ailments and trouble spots that can’t be seen by a naked eye, as a naked eye is too busy trying to cover its exposed iris to properly focus. Additionally, a bone-mast-straightening adjustment ensures nerves are unclogged and the body can traverse sidewalk seas unhindered (a $40 value). The 30-minute therapeutic massage capper shapes weathered muscles into a sturdy crowd-surfing hull (a $40 value).
Spa days are meant to be relaxing retreats, but often focus more on beauty services than actual relaxation. The Kinetic Mind Body Wellness Center offers an alternative, what owner Stephanie Carper-Smith calls a Wellness Day.
Staffers encourage each person to kick off their Wellness Day by admiring the visual beauty of the center, including the fine art that bedecks the walls. While guests reflect, the staff plies them with glasses of water or hot cups of tea sweetened with organic honey or agave.
These may include everything from a relaxing massage and acupuncture to a structured fitness class, such as yoga. Full-spectrum infrared saunas can help clients by elevating core temperatures, lowering blood pressure, and even jump-starting the metabolic processes that contribute to weight loss. The center also provides nutritional therapy and holistic health coaching, a gentle form of guidance that doesn't involve anybody in shorts blowing whistles and shouting, "Get healthier, son!"

At the helm of Healthy Life Acupuncture Center is Dr. Kimi Gudmundsen, who, besides holding a Ph.D., earned a masters degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and an aesthetician's license. She's able to put her extensive training to good use at the holistic wellness and natural beauty practice, where the treatments run the gamut from healing cold laser therapy to refreshing facials and peels.
Of course, acupuncture is the main specialty here, and Dr. Kimi and her team use the centuries-old technique to help recalibrate internal energy levels and address ailments such as anxiety, pain, and consumption. During the treatment, Dr. Kimi inserts very fine, sterilized needles at precise points, stimulating the body's self-healing mechanisms and redistributing energy flow so that it goes to the areas where it is most needed. The procedure is nearly painless, though some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation, feelings of warmth, or sudden empathy for hedgehogs.
Katherine E. J. Cheon is the esteemed acupuncturist at Healing Tree, and her career path seemed decided from birth. Raised in South Korea, her parents owned a holistic organic-herb farm, and she grew up playing with a wide variety of herbs. This innate passion let her to South Baylo University where she fine-tuned her herbal knowledge and began studying acupuncture. Now a licensed acupuncturist, Katherine is equipped to treat traditional maladies, and also fill the "effectiveness gaps" in conventional Western medicine, treating such issues as chronic back pain, infertility, headaches, and hat hair.
