Todd Luther, DC
I come from a family of health care practitioners (MD, RN, ARNP-Midwife) and knew early on that healthcare was my passion. But it wasn’t until I injured my low-back snowboarding (97/98 Mt Baker!) and went to a chiropractor that I became interested in the healing art.
I come from Skagit County and attended schools in Clear Lake & Sedro-Woolley. Then continued at Skagit Valley College, Western Washington University and then Life Chiropractic College West in California.
I’ve been practicing since 2005 and really enjoy helping patients overcome back/neck pain conditions that prevent them from living an active and fun life.
I love hanging-out with my wife and two kids and also enjoy snowmobiling, snowboarding, mtn-biking, dirt-biking, weight-lifting, reading, traveling and cooking.

I have been working with clients that struggle with chronic and re-occurring pain since
1993. My passion is helping people get out of pain and helping them from possibly
needing surgery. Healing is my gift and that is why I have been doing this for so long.
My style and expertise is deep tissue body work, most people seem to like a firmer
touch if done properly for that individual. That being said, if you like a lighter “spa” touch,
I can, do that for you. I have many years of in the trench training and knowledge
working with people in various states of pain and dysfunction. I learned a very dynamic
technique called Shulman Therapy, I learned it from Shulman himself. He was 84 and
has seen it all. I have taken that training with my schooling and my own experience and
created my own style, I call it, "Dynamic Release Therapy". I look forward to working
with you and will do all I can to help you feel better and have a pleasant experience.
