SHAW Chiropractic has moved to a
larger location in Sandy!
We are now located at:
870 E 9400 S Ste 108
Sandy, UT 84094
Here is our new office (some areas are still a work in progress) with an explanation of the different areas:
Front Desk/Waiting Area
Enjoy a cold glass of Mt Olympus Spring Water as you wait momentarily in our waiting area.
Behind our front desk you will notice the different supplies and supplements you can purchase to improve your at home exercise and nutrition to magnify your adjustments. We carry doTERRA Essential Oils, Biofreeze, Sombra, ROCKTAPE, Standard Process, MediHerb, TheraBand exercise equipment, Exercise Balls (we only sell burst resistant for patient safety), and D-Stressor Canes (see previous post).
Kids Play Area
Of course kids need to be in the adjusting area to be treated but not usually as often as their parents. We want to have our clinic be a family friendly environment and don’t want parents to worry about bringing their kids to an appointment. So we have toys, books, and children’s movies to entertain them. The clinic is still small enough that you are within ear shot at all times and can hear your children as they play.
We would recommend it however, that if you are planning a longer massage with the massage therapist to plan on having someone else watch your children or bring someone old enough to attend to them as you are getting a massage. Overall you will be able to relax more completely and receive the full benefit of your massage if you are not worried about what the kids are doing.
Chiropractic Exam/Treatment Area
“Hallway” to exam and treatment area. As you can see Dr. Shaw is well certified to be taking care of you and your family.
Dr. Shaw’s main technique is Activator Methods but he is comfortable in many other techniques as well. This adjusting table can pivot so that you get on the table in a standing position and get off the same way. This makes it easier and more comfortable to get on and off the table and puts you in a position that makes it less stressful on Dr. Shaw’s back (we want to look after our doctor as well) to take care of you properly.
We have an awesome percussor available to help decrease muscle tightness and trigger points. We also utilize the Erchonia Cold Laser to help with aches and pains, increase range of motion, etc.
You will also notice the pillow under the table. These are pillows designed with cutouts for pregnant women to lay down fairly comfortably on their belly without any added pressure being put on the baby. The pillows cradle and support the abdomen and most of our pregnant patients ask if they can stay on the pillows longer because this is the first time in months they have felt the pressure and the weight of the pregnancy relieved.
This is our exam area (still in the process of decluttering) where everything Dr. Shaw needs is close at hand to provide a quality examination. We now also can muscle test you to find out exactly which nutritional supplements your body is in need of to support your body to reduce the symptom(s) you are experiencing and to help the adjustment to hold better.
Active Therapy Area
Motion is Life!
We want to make sure you have the knowledge you need to strengthen the muscles to hold your adjustments better, have better balance and posture, and to have the strength you need to do the things you want to do. We have very specific protocols using exercise balls, stretches, tubing/bands, wobble boards, etc. to help strengthen the various areas of the body. Dr. Shaw will get down on the floor with you to make sure you know exactly how to do the exercises and that you are comfortable performing each exercise before letting you advance to more difficult exercises. For anyone trying to get a little cardio exercising done, we have the Dual Trainer which can be used as an elliptical or a bicycle.
Here is our massage room being utilized by the very talented Jennie Freestone LMT with Heartpoint Healing. Jennie is very good at what she does and very intuitive as far as what type of massage needs to be done. She is using her talents to try and create a very relaxing and meditative environment for your optimal treatment.
Classroom/Foot Scanning Station
We want to be able to educate our patients and the public about natural healthcare and ways to improve their daily lives. So, we picked a clinic location that would allow us to have a classroom area. We can easily accommodate up to 30 attendees (comfortably). The classes will vary and the room will be rented out to people to use who match our vision and philosophy. Most classes will probably be in the evening or during lunch hours and offered on a regular basis. If you would like to keep up to speed on the upcoming classes “like” our Facebook Page and we will keep you up to date.
In this area we also have the FootLevelers Foot Scan Station where we can scan your feet and see if any of the arches in your feet are falling and if you could benefit from custom orthotics.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know our clinic better and we hope you will feel comfortable bringing your family and friends to see what we can do to help you live a more comfortable life!
