Doctor Brandi Whitaker

When patient’s experience stress or trauma, it is common for their body to lose physical, chemical, and emotional balance.  My passion is to educate patients about alternative healthcare and how it can restore balance. Providing this knowledge is important for patients to understand the root cause of their problem.  I help patients of all ages to restore optimal health by using Chiropractic and functional nutrition.

I know that no single approach is right for every patient, I utilize Gonstead, Diversified, Webster, and Nutrition Response Testing techniques.  I also provide saliva hormone testing, food sensitivity testing, and whole food nutrition which are resources that yields great results. My approach is comprehensive and compliments any traditional health care program.

I have been helping patients since 1998.  My educational background includes Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Cleveland Chiropractic College.

I live in Parkville with my husband and daughter.  I enjoy food, exercise, books, golf, gardening, and the outdoors.

Laura Bailey

I am a facilitator of healing through touch.  Each person deserves a customized massage, from deep tissue to gentle relaxation and prenatal massage.  Always included are essential oils, hot stones, cupping tools, and gqa sha. I utilize guided meditation as well.  I have been a licensed massage therapist in Missouri since 2013.

Simply being a part of a person’s relaxation and body rejuvenation is my passion.
