Testimonial

    I have enjoyed the Healing Collaborative to the fullest! All the staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The massage chairs in the waiting room certainly add to the experience. 


    First, I enjoyed a birthday treat of massage and a facial which left me supple and relaxed. 


    Another visit was to see Dr Gilbert for chiropractic. I woke up in the morning with such a bad back that I could barely walk. My plan for the day was to take a very long run in marathon prep. I was afraid without this run, I wouldn't be able to do the upcoming marathon. Dr Gilbert saw me. The results were amazing! I walked out of the office with no pain or discomfort, enjoyed my long run, and smiled all 26 miles of trail two weeks later. It felt like a miracle.
