Welcome to Our Office!
Whole Family Chiropractic isn’t just who we are, it’s what we do. It is our goal to increase the health of the whole body, the whole spine, and the whole family using chiropractic techniques, cranial techniques, nutritional counseling, massage, rehab exercises, workshops, and classes in yoga and Pilates.
We are the only chiropractors in this area certified in the Cranial Release Technique – a gentle technique that provides a global release of tension throughout the cranium to allow for greater healing and stress release.
We are members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and have done extensive postgraduate work in the care of children and pregnant patients.
