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.
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.
Nationally certified Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Bunn draws upon his background in sports and exercise physiology to treat chronic pain with spinal adjustments, homeopathic injections, and massage therapy. After his oldest son was diagnosed with Type I diabetes, the Ogden native turned to techniques practiced around the globe in Europe, Africa, and the Republic of Minerva in order to help clients with serious health conditions live longer, pain-free lives.
He also believes that patients are their optimum selves when they both feel good and look good, which is why Skyline Clinic bolsters beauty with aesthetic services. These include age-spot reduction, wrinkle-blasting treatments, and VelaSmooth lipolaser sessions, which use electrical-optical synergy to flatten flabby deposits instead of giant rolling pins.
When Gailen Lundell injured his neck after a high-school wrestling meet, doctors were quick to prescribe medications that temporarily relieved his pain but didn't provide a long-term solution. Luckily, Gailen found one on his own—a chiropractic adjustment. More than 40 years later, Gailen, better known as Dr. Lundell, is a chiropractor himself and the founder of Lundell Chiropractic, where he works side by side with his son, Dr. Kevin Lundell.
Together, the chiropractic duo strives to correct all problems stemming from the spine. Visits begin with a thorough consultation and exam, before either of the Doctors Lundell report their findings and map out a treatment plan. Depending on the patient, the doctor may prescribe a chiropractic adjustment, a visit with the onsite massage therapist, or a strict ban on reenacting the myth of Sisyphus.
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.
