Our Specialties


The ultimate goal is to help patients find improvement in comfort and function as quickly as possible, and then to help them stay that way. Needing to get adjusted all the time to feel well is not our version of quality care. We aim to provide lasting whole-body work, teach people how to take the best care of themselves, and then be here to help maintain the balance. The more you are invested in your own care outside of the office, the less you are likely to find yourself needing treatments.

We believe that bodywork can help incredibly to get you back on track when feeling out of whack, usually due to a myriad of lifestyle strains and stresses. And for wee ones, it can really get them off on the right track and allow a physical and emotional unwinding from their birthing adventures.

Every single treatment here looks different from the next because each body has a unique need, and each person has their own goals and preferences. We are passionate about catering care to each comfort level.  In chiropractic work, we aim our goals to a more gentle approach based upon the patients comfort level, which for some means that there is no “cracking” at all, and for others there may be lots. We also are quick to make referrals to other impressive providers when we believe our care would be best complimented or replaced by another modality.  For Massage Therapy, Craniosacral, & Shiatsu, our listening skills allow each practitioner to hone in on the best modalities to aid in the deepest results for complete health and wellness.

*For anyone out there who has been nervous about chiropractic, please know that every doctor practices in a totally different way, and our utmost commitment here is to your comfort and education toward lifelong wellness.
