Golden Sun Chiropractic Practitioner Profile

Dr. Una Forde

Golden Sun Chiropractic and Dr. Una Forde are celebrating 25 years in practice this year.

Forde offers holistic and gentle chiropractic treatment at her Bloomington office. When she initially became interested in holistic healthcare, she saw chiropractic as an ideal way to provide healthcare to patients without the use of drugs and surgery.

“Chiropractic care is amazing and inspires me every day,” explains Forde, “the way it works to gently realign joints and remove blocks to the function of the nervous system, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.”

She graduated from Northwestern Chiropractic College (now Northwestern Health Sciences University), in Bloomington. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Bio-Medical Sciences from Montana State University with additional certification in acupuncture. She has studied various other modalities including craniosacral and health kinesiology.

Forde works closely with her husband, Theodore Rick, certified massage therapist, of Healing Taj, who provides adjunctive rehabilitative and relaxing bodywork using massage and Active Isolated Stretching (AIS).

“At Golden Sun Chiropractic and Healing Taj, we love working with patients interested in natural healing for themselves and their families,” says Forde. “We also like helping patients recover from injuries caused by falls, auto, work and sports. Early chiropractic and rehabilitative treatment for injuries with modalities like AIS can facilitate healing by re-establishing proper nerve function and improving circulation to the injured area, reducing pain and scar tissue and improving range of motion. This allows for quicker recovery and reduces likelihood of re-injury.”

Forde likes to offer new patients the opportunity to visit her office and see what they do by offering initial appointments for a reduced fee of $20 which they donate to charity.

“If you want to improve your vitality, stay active and enjoy your life with good health and mobility for as long as possible, make chiropractic a regular part of your health care maintenance plan,” Forde says. “Our dedication to quality, individual and customized care sets us apart.”

Golden Sun Chiropractic and Healing Taj combined their offices earlier this year when they moved from St. Louis Park to Bloomington. Their larger facility is spacious and warmly inviting.

Their guiding philosophy: “Our goal at Golden Sun Chiropractic Wellness Center is to provide you with quality chiropractic and holistic health care and to educate you about your health in a friendly, healing and welcoming atmosphere.”

Location: 220 W. 98th St., Ste. 7, Bloomington. For more information and appointments, call 952-922-1478 and/or visit
