Bon voyage to Cathy Pollock

Cathy Pollock is a teacher of the Alexander Technique who started her first practice in Bend, Oregon in 1994, then moved to Salt Lake in 1996 to teach full-time (and fit in some ski time). Now Cathy is returning to central Oregon.

Cathy will be here until mid-August. If you haven’t yet had an Alexander Technique lesson, or need a “tune-up,” now is the time to experience Cathy’s masterful hands. She will also return to Salt Lake annually to get her fill of Wasatch powder and conduct private lessons.

New to Salt Lake City

After 16 years of practicing chiropractic in Ogden, Corey Sondrup, chiropractic physician, has opened up a second office in Sugar House

For the past 16 years Dr. Sondrup has maintained a busy holistic-oriented chiropractic clinic which targets the body-mind-spirit complex. Dr. Sondrup combines cutting edge chiropractic with many eastern based holistic techniques. Primarily he combines chiropractic, nutrition and energy healing.

Also available at his office is the new combination of acupuncture and homeopathy called Biopunc­ture. By injecting homeopathic remedies in targeted acupuncture points Dr. Corey says he is able to help patients with a variety of chronic pain issues.

There are also formulations for cosmetic purposes. Cosmetic Bio-mesotherapy provides a natural alternative to surgery and botox for toning and rejuvenating the face, neck, breasts and other areas.

Dr. Corey Sondrup is the author of two self-help/personal growth books: Reclaiming Your Power and, new this year, Mastering Life’s Lessons. Dr. Corey teaches energy healing seminars across North America. —Jane Laird
