How we help

It's been our mission from the start to provide the most efficient, effective and powerful methods that assist you in having a naturally healthy body.
Below is an introduction to our methods and specialties.


The highest evolution of reflex testing by one of the highest trained Nutrition Response Testers in the world and senior practitioner in Alaska. It has been found that behind the body dysfunction is inflammation due to exposure and intake of heavy metals, chemicals, food products, “bugs”, and scar tissue damage over the years. Our testing finds it, and gives solutions without drugs and surgeries.

Our bodies are pure energy at their core. Every cell in the human body communicates through electrical signals. The flow of these signals controls our brain waves, heart rhythm, nervous system, and the way our cells react to our environment. 


One of the oldest, effective, accepted and proven methods of Chiropractic care. It is a precise method with precision adjusting. We analyze the body by Motion and Static Palpation, Symptoms, Diagnostic imaging, Visualization, and then understand what needs to be done.

Brain Rejuvination

As you most likely know, you are not your body, you have a body! And that body brings lots of pleasure and at times discomfort. Things go wrong and as a result the energies of the body can really get mixed up. Everything in life has its own energy signature and energy field, so does your body and the parts of your body. When the body part is working properly it has positive energy and conversely negative energy when in a state of dysfunction.

IOnic foot detox bath

Often, when we are working with a patient who is reaching their goals on our program, healthy progress can become stalled due to the body’s inability to remove toxins efficiently. If these toxins are allowed to build up, the patient’s immune system suffers, inflammation increases, and the body reabsorbs the toxins it can’t get rid of.
By supporting their bodies detoxification process through, an ionic foot bath detox, we can ensure that the patient’s lymphatic system works unimpeded. Any residual toxins can be flushed out resulting in improved overall health for the patient.

Red Light Therapy

Red and near infrared light, when delivered within the optimal wavelengths and energy levels, protect your body’s cells from nitric oxide damage. Cellular healing takes place during red light therapy as it is the only light that can reach a cell’s mitochondria to stimulate healing and regeneration from this damage. Your appearance, performance, and overall well-being are improved through regular treatments. Reduced recovery time, diminished inflammation and improved circulation are additional benefits.

Emotion Clearing

Emotions can be thought of as messages which help us to understand why things are the way they are in our lives. Many are timestamped and can be recalled easily while others could be ancestrally imbedded. If they are not transformed they are transmitted. When unprocessed, these emotions may lay dormant or "trapped" in your subconscious mind creating pain, malfunction, and eventual disease in your life and body. You may experience difficulty making decisions or have an inability to feel, receive or express love. You may also suffer physically from body aches, illness and weight gain.
By releasing these emotions, a positive change takes place and your body can regain it's full healing capabilities. 

Cranial Fascial Release

Dr. Greg Sternquist is now trained and certified in the Cranial Facial Release Technique. CFR is an advanced form of “balloon assisted” cranial adjusting that incorporates the use of tiny balloons that are carefully inserted in the naso-pharanx region and quickly inflated to mobilize the bones of the face and cranium. It has been used quite successfully, since the 1930's, in the treatment of various respiratory, neurological and structural disorders. 
The CFR treatment is safe and quick when performed by a professional. Often times, results are immediate. The whole process takes about 2 to 3 seconds, and is performed in a series of 4 individual treatments, over a 7-14 day period.
The CFR procedure is being offered, in our office, to established patients. Call today to schedule your free 20 minute consultation (907)743-3040

Nutrition Guidance Program


With Gonstead Chiropractic we can give you the ultimate standard in "hands on" spinal adjusting and this technique remains the leader in chiropractic techniques.

How does Gonstead Chiropractic work?
It’s a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of illness or non-optimum health.

We use various examination procedures such as visualization of spinal posture, and motion. As well as in-depth methods to examine and analyze various factors that can effectively uncover characteristics of full spine and pelvis alignment, neurological effects of the vertebral subluxation(a partial dislocation) and overall health.

What is the Gonstead Chiropractic Procedure like?
Visualization — Visualization is a way to cross reference all the other findings. Your chiropractor is an expert in looking for subtle changes in your posture and movement which could indicate any problems.

Instrumentation — The instrument of choice in the Gonstead System is the Nervoscope. The Nervoscope detects uneven distributions of heat along the spine which can be indicative of inflammation and nerve pressure. This instrument is guided down the length of your back and feels like two fingers gliding down each side of your spine.

Static Palpation — This is simply the process of feeling (or palpating) your spine in a stationary (or static) position. Your chiropractor will feel for the presence of swelling (or edema), tenderness and any abnormal texture or tightness in the muscles and other tissues of your back.

Motion Palpation — This process involves feeling the spine while moving and bending it at various angles. This enables the chiropractor to determine how easily or difficult each segment in your spine moves in different directions.

X-Ray Analysis — X-ray films enable your doctor to visualize the entire structure of your spine. This is helpful in evaluating posture, joint and disc integrity, vertebral misalignments and ruling out any pathologies, or recent fractures that may be present or contributing to the patient’s condition. These full-spine radiographs are taken in the standing, weight-bearing position to fully substantiate the examination findings.

Why use Alaska Health Improvement Center?
The reason is quite simple – the Gonstead techniques require a very high level of mastery. In fact, one can look at the Gonstead system as an art form: every single adjustment requires a significant amount of skill, practice, and dedication. Having an experienced Gonstead Chiropractor like Dr. Greg is your best start to a happy, healthy lifestyle.


Nutrition Response Testing®

With Nutrition Response Testing® we can help you discover the real underlying cause of your health problems and fix them – naturally and holistically.

How does Nutrition Response Testing® work?
It’s a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of illness or non-optimum health. We use your body’s reflexes as a biofeedback system to tell us what areas are weak and need nutritional support. By checking these reflexes directly against a series of the most common causes of dysfunction including environmental toxins, food allergies, immune challenges, and even scars we can discover the actual root of your health problems.

Isn’t Nutrition Response Testing® just like other muscle testing?
Actually, Nutrition Response Testing® is quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. What makes it truly different are the results. You’ll know it’s the right approach when you experience results where you’ve tried so many other things and failed to improve your health. I’ve seen nothing but success with almost any health challenge encountered in my many years of practice. The only limiting factor we come up against is if a person is unwilling to make the lifestyle changes they need to produce lasting health improvement. Real long-term results come from long term commitment to a new way of living. Chronic health conditions that have taken half a lifetime to create don’t get better overnight–but they CAN get better!

What is the Nutrition Response Testing® Procedure like?
The actual procedure is simple and direct with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. We use your body’s reflexes to determine if you are having trouble with toxins, food allergies, scars and other potential culprits that could be negatively affecting your health. We assess your organ systems for deficiencies and use all this information to design a personal program that is right for you. 

Can it help me even though I've tried everything else?
Nutrition Response Testing® is a clinically proven system used by hundreds of practitioners for more than 15 years. Thousands of patients all over the country have experienced tremendous relief from many different health challenges including chronic pain, hormonal imbalances, unexplained illnesses, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive issues, food allergies and many more.

What can I expect at my first visit?
At your first visit we’ll have you fill out a health history and then gather information about your current symptoms and concerns. We will also do a computerized Heart Rate Variability test to gain even more insight into how your nervous system is functioning. Then you will be examined using Nutrition Response Testing® analysis to determine exactly what will support your health recovery. 

What is the Alaska Health Improvement Program?
It is a completely individualized Clinical Nutrition Program that relies on the information that your nervous system provides, making it accurate, reliable and totally customized to your body and health challenges. Depending on the report of findings, we recommend a specific nutritional supplement program along with modifications to what you eat that may be causing your health conditions. This may include adding foods or eliminating foods to be sure your body has the best chance at healing.
