At my office, you are an individual. I want to you feel comfortable and inspired, whatever that looks like for you.
When you first enter, youll enter a peaceful place to (re)connect with your potential to thrive. Make yourself comfortable in the reception room until I invite you into the private adjusting room. Please allow an extra 15 minutes for your first time in my office to complete a health history and questionnaire.
Together, confidentially, well review your past,.. future, and current health concerns and desires. A comprehensive physical assessment will give me further insight, and indicate whether I see a benefit in arranging any further testing. I have a network of incredible professionals I will refer you to if that is the case.
If I think its appropriate to begin with a chiropractic adjustment, I will use a gentle and powerful technique to clear interference from your nervous system. This visit generally takes an hour, and I recommend you take some quiet time after to integrate your adjustment and observe your body.
Well arrange a follow up visit for you, so we can track the physical and emotional reactions you may experience following your first visit. Well begin to design an active system for addressing any frustrating conditions of your life in a smart, manageable and powerful way.
I may suggest seeing you several times a week when we first begin care. Your body responds best with more frequent chiropractic input at first. But over the long term, my goal is to set you up with ways you can manage your own healing, so you will be empowered to take responsibility for your health and make better lifestyle choices. Of course, you may find my care to be a helpful tool to assist you and youre welcome to come visit whenever you need a refreshing dose of Dr. Shannon!
Dr. Shannon Parisi, Chiropractic Physician
I realized early that I wanted to be a healer. I was accepted to the Doctorate of Chiropractic graduate program at Life University in Marietta, Georgia at just 19 years old, and graduated four years later. Most of us are fundamentally called to do this work. I was surrounded by people completely invested in the science and art of healing, and the life wisdom of my classmates and teachers impacted me greatly.
I was young, but I knew this was my path, and I loved the challenging education. In addition to the required Doctorate curriculum, I immersed myself in studying outside of class with the masters of my profession. Thanks to teachers and every seminar I could find time for, I received a deep and integrative education that I actively continue to pursue today so I can bring you the very best and most effective chiropractic care right here in Salt Lake City. Most recently I became a certified B.E.S.T. practitioner which has been incredibly valuable.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, I met my husband, an extreme adrenaline junkie who had already lived many years in Utah and was missing his mountains. Now I considered myself more of a beach bum with a gutsy East Coast attitude and at first, I wasnt so sure about Utah. I was cultivating my first practice and the ocean was a short drive away. Life was good. I was definitely hesitant to uproot everything and move a thousand miles away from my life and the mild winters of NC.
But I uproot I did, and three years later, I am a believer. Its a total joy to call Salt Lake City home.
I truly come alive in my work, and I honor the opportunity to know you and serve you as a chiropractor and healer of humanity.

B.E.S.T. - Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique is a non-forceful, energy balancing hands on procedure used to help reestablish the full healing potential of the body. Understanding the body makes no mistakes regarding health and longevity, B.E.S.T. principles acknowledge the concept of Interference we create with our conscious mind. This Interference caused imbalance in the autonomic nervous system leading to exhaustion of our organ systems over time.
Activator The only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy.
Arthrostim® performs this high-velocity, low-amplitude motion 12 times per second, and is targeted to a very small area. The force of the thrust radiates through the joint and the tissues that surround it, releasing trigger points that are often the cause of muscle spasms. As opposed to traditional chiropractic adjustment techniques, use of the Arthrostim® does not cause the same popping and cracking noises in the joint that can make some people feel uneasy. It is a gentle, mechanical method of easing the joints back into alignment.
