Dr. Peter Halvorson, D.C.
Dr. Peter Halvorson has been involved in drug-free healthcare also known as Alternative and Complementary Medicine (CAM) since he was a teenager in the late 1970’s. That is when he began his studies in foot reflexology and exploring a vegetarian diet. He discovered Chiropractic healthcare as a patient in his twenties, has been a Massage Therapist since 1993 and completed a three and half year program for his Doctorate of Chiropractic.
As a result of his studies, he has realized the great importance of a healthy brain and neurological system and the damaging effects of poor diet and stress.
Dr. Halvorson enjoys providing excellent, brain-based chiropractic care that lets patients leave happier than when they came in. He sees patients from prenatal to nonagenarians (90s) and finds great success in particular in adjusting the hip/pelvis/sacrum complex, utilizing techniques derived from the mechanics of Dr. Hugh Logan at the base of the spine (Logan Basic Technique).
Chiropractic care interrupts subconscious patterns that put stress on the brain and body. To do this Dr. Halvorson employs many diversified techniques in chiropractic adjustment and spinal analysis, including those he learned from over 16 years delivering therapeutic massage as a Licensed Massage Therapist, to customize his care to fit his patients’ individual and unique needs.
A Passion for Learning
Dr. Halvorson’s involvement in drug-free health care started back in the 1970s when, as a teenager, he began studying foot reflexology and explored the benefits of a vegetarian diet.
He received his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science/Microbiology through Northern Arizona University. He later came to find that he had finished a pre-med curriculum. Years later he graduated from the prestigious Logan University where he received his Doctor of Chiropractic.
Dr. Halvorson has also taken a considerable amount of continuing education courses in areas that include neuromuscular therapy, Koren Specific Technique, brain chemistry and many more so he can best serve his patients.
