Chiropractic …

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Cartwright for 20 years. He has kept me so healthy that I very rarely need to see my primary care doctor. He is incredibly knowledgeable and very caring. I especially like that he know’s so much about women’s medicine. Thank you for all that you do for me, Dr. Cartwright.”

Massage …

“I have experienced other massage therapists, and have enjoyed them, but it was not until I met Kimberly that I truly understood how much healing could happen! I had a very painful rotator cuff issue. But when I combined her massage with my Chiropractor visits, pretty much all of the pain went away! Kimberly does not waste time “refilling” the oils she uses for the massage; she wears a belt around her waist so they are readily available. I appreciate that Kimberly makes the most of the time I invest with her; and her in depth knowledge of the body.”

Acupuncture

“My  physician diagnosed the pain in my knee as arthritis and told me I would have to learn to live with it, but after several months of worsening pain and swelling that became bad enough to wake me most nights, I decided to try acupuncture. After the first treatment, the pain was reduced markedly and kept lessening for a couple of days. By the end of four treatments I had recovered most pain-free movement and the swelling was gone. I know I still have arthritic knees but feel confident I really will be able to live with them with Lauren’s help. She’s amazing.”

Foundation Training …

“A close friend of mine worked with Erin after a car accident to learn how Foundation Training could help with her healing. She was so happy with the outcome of her training that she encouraged me to work with Erin too. I can’t thank my friend enough! Erin is a great teacher; she doesn’t make false promises, but she does extend hope, provides support, and skillfully teaches her patients how to help themselves move more effectively. Foundation Training doesn’t require any hype; the exercises and the resulting improvements in physical well-being speak for themselves. Foundation Training does not require extensive equipment and the exercises can easily been done at home. As a result, I’m enjoying the personal gratification that comes with being an active participant in my own healing.”

Massage…

“I met Kimberly through my long time chiropractor. She provided massage therapy for injuries sustained when I was rear-ended in a car accident (totaled my car). Between the two providers, I was healed and pain free within months!  When I injured my arm in the backyard being a ‘weekend warrior’, I once again turned to Kimberly for massage therapy and relief.  I have learned to never skip therapy with such a great practitioner.  My husband and I also eagerly look forward to our total body massage appointments, as she is able to release stress and tension for hard working people! I highly recommend her as a massage therapist. Two thumbs up!”

Acupuncture…

“Lauren is fabulous! She is patient, calming, and really listens to your needs. I saw her for pregnancy related leg pain and it was the only thing that truly made me feel any pain relief. On the days she gave me treatment I would finally be able to get some sleep at night. Priceless when you are pregnant. I would highly recommend her! The office is pleasant, easy to get to, and ample parking. Call her if you are in pain, she can help!”

Acupuncture…

“I was experiencing debilitating back pain for three months and went to a famous chiropractor and then my MD, then a couple acupuncturists… ugh, it was exhausting, nothing really helped. Until I made an appointment with Lauren, after just one treatment I felt much, much better. I will definitely be going back to her! I recommend you make an appointment with her for any of your healthcare needs.”

Foundation Training …

“I’ve been doing Foundation Training with Erin for over a year now. In that time I’ve definitely improved my posture, strength, and awareness. I’ve had back issues most of my life with debilitating bouts on a semi-frequent basis. I completely credit my improvement to Erin and Foundation Training for the fact that I now rarely suffer from flare ups. When I do get twinges at the onset of a flare up I’m armed with counter-measures that help prevent it from getting worse. Erin is very patient and tailors her approach to work best for my needs. I’m inherently lazy so seeing her weekly keeps me on point. Her enthusiasm and interest in Foundation Training comes from her own personal experience as a fellow back pain sufferer. Erin practices what she preaches!”
