About Carolyn Gochee, D.C.
Dr. Carolyn Gochee, a holistic chiropractor, chose to specialize in wellness because of the myriad of benefits she and her family received from chiropractic care as she was growing up. She became aware of the power of chiropractic care when she and her family experienced significant relief from ear infections, headaches, migraines, and premenstrual symptoms.
Dr. Gochee graduated in 2003, from Logan University in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri, where she was awarded top of her class in Logan Basic Technique. She opened her private practice in Craig, Colorado, in August 2004, and practiced there until she moved to Grand Junction in the summer of 2017.
Throughout her career, Dr. Gochee has continually expanded her scope of practice to include therapies that match her philosophy that healing comes from within.
Functional Medicine/Functional Blood Chemistry- Dr. Gochee has taken hundreds of hours in this forward-thinking method of medicine that recognizes the body as one integrated system rather than a collection of independent organs. Using this underlying premise, specific blood work and/or saliva testing is ordered and analyzed. Often, a patient will receive test results that are “normal,” which on the surface may indicate there is no pathology or disease, but the patient still feels “off” or “not themselves.” Using functional medicine, Dr. Gochee can find clues of pathology and underlying problems that are being missed by many healthcare professionals.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) – a specific way of testing the muscles and treating them through chiropractic adjustments and/or nutrition.
Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) – Dr. Gochee is certified and has over 500 hours of post-doctoral training in SOT. SOT practitioners recognize the cranial bones and other cranial structures can cause central nervous system problems. For example, chronic sinusitis, ADD/ADHD and chronic headaches can be helped dramatically by relaxing the nervous system through cranial adjustments.
Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) – a very specific mind-body technique discovered by a chiropractor over 30 years ago which is utilized by both physical and mental/emotional practitioners. NET works at the cellular level to help find and release “stuck” emotions that relate to imbalances in the physiology.
Appreciating the benefits of collaborative and integrative care, Dr. Gochee is excited to be a part of the team at Healing Horizons. She believes when chiropractic care is complemented with acupuncture, nutrition, massage, and behavioral health; a patient’s full healing potential can be achieved.
