The renovations on the new massage rooms is slowly coming along. After a mother nature set back, we are continuing with the progress. The flooring will be laid in the next week, then it's the finishing touches with the baseboards, trim and doors.
Please be a few minutes early for your appointment since we try to maximize our schedules and stay on time.
Chiropractic appointments are scheduled every 15 minutes.
Massage appointments are buffered with 15 minutes to change sheets and for client to change in or out of clothing.
If you are late for your chiropractic appointment this may result in you waiting for the next available spot or rescheduling your appointment for another day.

Chiropractic Care Could Help With Existing Health Problems
As an alternative form of medical treatment, chiropractic care is generally geared towards helping patients with back, neck and joint pain. Dr. Hamza Saif, an Ottawa-based chiropractor at the Hunt Chiropractic Clinic, says the treatment can also improve symptoms and effects of common illnesses to improve overall quality of life.
Chiropractic treatment for health problems is not always considered when it comes to healing, but you may be surprised to find that relief from some of the most chronic pains could be helped by a few chiropractic sessions.
While we don't claim to cure organic diseases, we can improve the quality of life to patients dealing with them," said Saif.
Saif gives the example of asthma, which often causes mid-back pain due to constant coughing. Chiropractors can't cure asthma, but they can relieve the back and muscle pain caused by it, he says.
According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, the treatment is gradually gaining popularity. The association reports that 53 percent of Canadians had visited a chiropractor for treatment at some point in their lives in 2009, compared to 49 percent in 2005.
Even as it gains popularity, there is push-back to the alternative treatment by medical doctors and patients alike, who say there is little medical evidence for chiropractic solutions. One of the major risks often associated with chiropractic care is the potential for increasing the risk of strokes. However, a study published by the European Spine Journal in 2008, found that there were no links between the two.
Saif says much of the controversy surrounding chiropractic treatment is often due to a lack of education, especially in older doctors who weren't formally taught it in medical school (chiropractors get their degrees at separate chiropractic colleges).
"The best place to start is a consultation with a licensed chiropractor. Skeptical people are usually the ones who haven't seen a chiropractor."
Migraines: According to migraines.com, a number of studies have proved that chiropractic treatment can lower the frequency and pain intensity of migraines.
Cerebral Palsy: Individuals with cerebral palsy often have "dysfunctional muscles", which cause other muscles to work extra and strain. Chiropractic treatment can help reduce stress on these muscles, says Saif.
Parkinson's Disease: While it's unknown exactly what causes this disease, studies have linked it to accidents causing head traumas and spinal misalignments, according to Yourspine.com. Chiropractic treatments can correct these misalignments and remove pressure on surrounding nerves.
Arthritis Pain Relief: Saif says most people over 50-years-old have some signs of joint degeneration, which causes pain and stiffness. Chiropractic adjustments can help joints feel less sore so they move more freely.
High Blood Pressure: According to Saif, studies have shown that just one chiropractic session can keep blood pressure lowered for several weeks. He recommends seeing a NUCCA specialist, a specific type of chiropractic that deals with upper neck adjustments.
Cancer Pain Relief: The effects of cancer treatments like chemotherapy can often leave patients feeling extreme fatigue and soreness to the point they are bedridden. With chiropractic adjustment, some of this pain can be relieved so they have a better quality of life says Saif.

Chiropractic Care and Cancer
What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), our chiropractors can provide chiropractic treatment to relieve pain and stiffness in your joints and muscles caused or intensified by surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care
Cancer and treatments for cancer can cause stress on the musculoskeletal system. Some cancer patients experience peripheral neuropathy, aches and pains in the neck and/or back, muscle tension, headaches, or difficulty walking.
Chiropractic care can help to reduce stress and increase mobility, flexibility, strength and function, as well as help improve overall well-being. Specially, a chiropractic adjustment can help alleviate a variety of symptoms, including:
Experienced care team
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Painful walking
- Neuropathy (pain or numbness in the hands and feet)
Our chiropractors are licensed physicians with expertise in using non-invasive manual or instrument procedures to restore the muscle and joints of the body, particularly the spine. They work closely with your oncologists and the rest of your care team to help to reduce stress to the nervous system without the use of drugs or surgical treatment.
Individualized treatment approach
If your oncologist determines chiropractic care is safe and appropriate, a chiropractor will work with your oncologists and the rest of your care team to develop a plan. Your plan may included non-invasive manual chiropractic techniques to correct bone, muscle and joint problems and restore nerve function.
A common therapeutic procedure is spinal manipulation, or chiropractic adjustment. Manipulation involves manually applying a controlled force to the spice and/or other joints in the body that have become misaligned or restricted in their movement.
Some specific chiropractic techniques to restore alignment include:
Throughout your cancer treatment, we will consistently monitor your scans and X-rays, as well as your lab results, to ensure safe delivery of care. Our chiropractors can also work closely with your hometown doctor to ensure your care is safe and appropriate once you return home.
- Hands-on adjustments
- Electrical stimulation of the muscles
- Application of special instruments
- Non-force techniques
While chiropractic care can be helpful to many patients, it may not be for everyone. For example, chiropractic services may not be recommended is a bone metastasis is found or your platelet counts are low.
- 24 out of 32 NFL teams have chiropractors listed as "official chiropractor" for their teams
- currently no women provide chiropractic services to the NFL
- Chiropractic sports medicine specialists first began treating Olympic athletes at the Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976
Another fun fact!
A few of Dr. Amanda's professors at Logan College of Chiropractic are affiliated with professional sport teams.
Dr. Filson has been the chiropractor for the St. Louis Cardinals since 1990. He was given a World Series ring in 2006 for his contribution to the team winning the World Series
Dr. Michael Murphy, a past Essex County resident, has been the chiropractor for the St. Louis Rams since 2001 and the chiropractor for the St. Louis Blues since 1997.
Spring Into Shape
Spring officially kicks off on March 15 this year; for many people, that signals the first day of their quest to get into the shape they've always desired. Why Spring? Perhaps because it represents renewal, rebirth - the re-emergence of plants that shed their leaves for winter, animals that went into hibernation, etc.
Have you been hibernating this winter? Did you pack on the holiday pounds - and keep right on going into the first few months of the year? Well, now the time to shed those pounds and get back to the lean, mean fighting machine you once were. Here are four sensible ways to get started:
- Lose your car keys: Walking is the simplest form of exercise and opportunities abound, especially if you're willing to forgo modern conveniences like your car, which can take you right to the doorstep of any destination. If the weather's good and you're withing a mile of where you're going, why not leave the car at home and foot it? And if you're travelling longer distances, why not park the car a good distance away and finish the trip with a brisk, invigorating walk? Movement is life - so start moving more and sitting less today.
- Hit the deck: Exercise isn't about gym memberships, fancy equipment and personal training (although those can all be effective); it can be as simple as using your body's own weight against itself and the forces of gravity. Don't have time to get to the gym? Then hit the deck at home and do a five-rotation workout that includes push-ups, planks, wall squats, leg lifts and lunges (and that's just for starters!).
- Control the remote: After a stressful day at the office and an evening shift as chef/teacher/maid at home, exercise may be the furthest thing from your mind. No, it's time to plop down on the couch and watch a few hours of television to unwind. The problem: Couch time generally means little movement; what's more, it can often lead to intermittent snacking, which can add empty calories to your day. Set a TV limit (for your entire family) and then find something more productive to do with your time.
- Make lots of lemonade: We've saved the most important lesson for last. Getting in shape is a process, a lifestyle; it doesn't happen overnight and there will be plenty of challenges along the way. But like any other challenge, your attitude can make a profound difference. Whether it's a busy week when you're forced to miss a workout, or a month in which the mirror and scale don't seem to be your friends, stay positive. Take every lemon and turn it into lemonade.
