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.
Krista Call's passion for massage therapy started as an interest in aromatherapy. She has used essential oils for the past 24 years, choosing, for example, lavender oil for bug bites, tea-tree oil for its cleansing effects, and peppermint for allergic reactions to reindeer. Eventually she began receiving reflexology treatments at the location where she bought her oils, which made her realize how crucial the mind-body connection is to health. She became a licensed massage therapist, desiring to share massage's myriad physical and emotional benefits with others.
At Soothing Days Massage Therapy, Call specializes in therapeutic Swedish and prenatal sessions and gently heats towels or stones to enhance circulation and relaxation. She loosens muscles at spa parties and bridal showers and can also travel to offices or sporting events to perform chair massages.
After graduating from the Ogden Institute of Massage, Melissa Mower practiced her craft in spas and chiropractic offices alike. Today, she brings the skills she honed in those contrasting environments to her very own studio. Mower prides herself on the open communication environment that she cultivates with her clients, whose massage "wants" are just as important to her as their massage "needs." She addresses these issues and more with bodywork from modalities that include deep-tissue, Swedish, sports, and trigger-point massage. During hot-stone massages, Mower soothes deep-seated pain with carefully placed simmering rocks; during infant massage, she eases youthful discomfort by placing babies on clients' sore backs.
New Image Day Spa staffs an experienced team of 23 massage therapists and 13 master aestheticians. The 30-minute classic facial begins with a skin analysis to map out each face's unique layout of caves, valleys, and rivers. After determining an appropriate course of action, aestheticians barrage pores with custom cleansing, exfoliating, masking, and moisturizing.
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.
