Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
Theresa, Nu View of U's owner and principle massage therapist, calls upon seven years of bodywork experience to help clients combat stress and knotted muscles. Theresa and her team of tension busters knead muscles with a gentle to medium flow during the Swedish massage or work out injuries accrued from ziplining across the hallway with leftover floss during a sports or deep-tissue treatment. For muscles that refuse to budge, therapists are happy to add hot stones to the mix or bring about balance with reflexology or craniosacral therapy to help improve circulation and reduce pain.

Wilson keeps patients informed and at ease, offering tips for a healthy lifestyle and explaining each procedure via fast-paced freestyle rapping.

Though they tap into nearly 20 combined years of experience, aesthetician Ashley Lybarger and reflexologist Lonnie Fletcher are students of their own crafts. Ashley stays abreast of beauty trends and products while expanding her menu of gel manicures and pedicures and deep-cleansing facials. Lonnie testifies to the effectiveness of reflexology by receiving it regularly. Through a relaxing pressure-point massage, he attempts to harmonize the body by manipulating the nerve endings in the hands and feet that correspond to various areas.
Discover Health & Wellness's staff of chiropractors and massage therapists is dedicated to boosting clients’ overall well-being by building relationships and facilitating education. Initial consultations and noninvasive tests help discover undetected nerve damage or vertebrae playing musical chairs, allowing doctors to adjust spines and therapists to massage muscles with technical precision. The doctors themselves can vouch for the efficacy of chiropractic care. As a young man, Doctor of Chiropractic Cameron Hall worked on ski patrol. As he explains in his bio video, skiing for 10 hours a day took a hard-hitting toll on his back and knees, and nearly laid him low. Happily, a chiropractor on staff set his spine straight, saving him from a life bereft of his favorite hobbies, including rock climbing and river rafting. The experience inspired him to become a chiropractor.
