Striving to help his patients achieve full body wellness, Dr. Smith began to study and implement cutting edge technologies and procedures that would assist them in meeting other health and wellness goals.  In order to keep Big Mountain Chiropractic on a subluxation focused path, Dr. Smith and his executive coordinator, Krista VanHelden, invested in launching a sister company that would continue bringing health and wellness to patients by better facilitating these new, non-subluxation based technologies and procedures.  Dr. Smith and his staff work with each patient to customize an appropriate treatment plan for continual results that help each patient look and feel their best. 
Dr. Smith and his lovely wife Julie are Montana natives who contribute generously to the Whitefish community.  Julie works in the local school system and Dr. Smith involves himself in a variety of local community events as well as volunteering his time to those in need at Shepherd's Hand clinic.

When they are not fulfilling professional passions or volunteering in the community, Kanyon and Julie enjoy the company of their three wonderful children.  As a family they enjoy spending time with friends and family in the Montana outdoors.


Dr. Kanyon Smith, DC

At the heart of Big Mountain Med Spa you will find this smiling face.  She is the girl behind the emails, the events, the monthly specials, the website, Instagram and Facebook, etc!  Although her role is very diverse, she loves the variety it brings!  She has an undergraduate degree from Seattle Pacific University in education and has taught locally over the last 18 years.  Although her career path has changed,  passion for serving others through teaching continues to serve her well in the customer service industry. 

She came to Big Mountain Chiropractic as it began to experience fast growth and more attention was needed for marketing and management.  Passionate about her ability to help others, Krista assisted in pioneering the launch of Big Mountain Med Spa as a sister company to Big Mountain Chiropractic.  She enjoys meeting and talking to new people, providing the information needed to keep up with life's changes, and serving patients in achieving full body health and wellness.   

Krista and her husband Ben, a local real estate agent in the Valley, are Flathead High high school sweethearts who have been married for 20 years and have two amazing kids.  When they aren't working or running kids around, Krista and her family enjoy spending as much time as possible on the water or in the mountains enjoying all the outdoor activities the great state of Montana has to offer.
