    Great! They helped solve mechanical problem by treating the whole person with diet, exercise, supplements and targeted rehab for specific muscle groups. I could not be happier with a chiropractic practice and I have been to many highly regarded professionals all over the world. They are the best!

    I arranged a first-time apt. for lower back pain. The person on the phone referred me to a well-organized website with a detailed outline of what to expect on the first visit, including: an hour-and-a-half visit that would include x-rays, exam/evaluation, adjustment.
    What I got was 2:15 minutes of sitting that did include: x-rays, a 10-15 minute test of reflexes by an assistant (David Kirsch seemed
    ready to do it but stepped out to return a phone call), and finally after over 2 hours, a 5 minute talk with D. Kirsch  during which time he said I had a ?strange? back and that he didn?t think an adjustment would help (by this time it was 12:00 / lunchtime). He said he would have his receptionist give me the name of a physical therapist.  She did not remember to provide the name, but she did give me a $200 bill!

    Dr. Thaw took the time to meet with me in his office first to discuss my past and current problems. He was able to to then come up with a treatment plan. He has been a good listener and has fixed my neck issue without unnecessary procedures.
    His staff is friendly and helpful.
    I now have my boyfriend going as well. He is very satisfied also.

    Overall the experience was positive. I have gone to Revitalize Day Spa many times and I've received massages from many different massage therapists there. Although each therapist has their own style I've liked most of them. Most of the time I use a pre-purchased discounted rate. It's helpful to sign up for their emails.
    The facilities are nice and updated. One of the benefits is the relaxation room where you can hang out after your massage in a quiet space and have water and tea. It's a great way to 'absorb' the massage fully before heading back out into the world. I wish the massage rooms were quieter. Unfortunately, noise travels easily from other rooms, the hallway, the nail room and even the front office. Light music and a fan help.
    If someone plans to schedule a massage with Revitalize for the first time, I'd recommend that you explain to the scheduler what you like or if there's a particular problem you're trying to get worked on and they'll suggest who might be a good fit.

    Dr. Kirsch said he didn't want to take X-Rays of my shoulders in addition to what I brought from previous doctor, but rather he'd rely on his feeling of my body to do the treatment. He also said that he doesn't do precise measurements to calculate the angles of spinal vertibrae, but he rather relies on his feeling of the body and its mobility to make adjustments. 
    I admit, I admire when people want to save me money, but it also made me nerveous. After the treatments, the pain in my neck was partially gone and I could move my head side to side. However, it transformed into another kind of pain - now I feel like my neck is swollen, and I feel like my scull is pressing on the tip of the spine, creating headaiche. I find myself massaging my head and neck throughout the day to get relief. The pain in the shoulders lowered for a bit, but then was back the next day with higher intensity. I still wake up with the sensetion of a needle shouting through my chest and I cannot turn or sleep in any positin, only in some.
    Overall, Dr. Kirsch appeared very friendly and I got a sense that he truly wanted to help and do a good job. That's why I feel bad marking him low on here. However, I felt nerveous trusting a doctor who doesn't take X-Rays and relyes only on his feelings to do the treatment. Neck and spine are sensitive areas with many nerves and parts, which could be screwed up pretty easily, and since the treatment did not provide the relief I was seeking, I decided to cancel all my future appointments and go to the regular MD. I love holistic methods, but I also feel more comfortable when they are more... scientific.

    Felt great after.  He really has a lot of knowledge - he communicated what he was picking put on from my muscles and gave me some tips.  I bought a package of massages and plan to return.

    We looked into several day cares and had issues with all of the others except for Cook's Academy. The director even came in on the day she was supposed to leave for a family vacation to show us around and meet with my husband and I.

    It went great. I met with Dr. Prater and he was able to diagnose the issue, gave me a few adjustments, and gave me some stretches and exercises I could do at home. He even figured out that, because of a prior sports injury from over 10 years ago, I had changed my walking style to favor a knee. After the knee healed, I maintained this walking style out of force of habit, which caused other imbalances that may have contributed to the issue. So, instead of just feeling better, I am also learning to "walk" again and provide better, more balanced support for my body. I go back when I feel like I need to, there is no pressure from the office.

    What a difference between my first Chiropractic experience and my second! I am staying with Dr. Prater.

    I visited them this morning. I just think they are thorough. It's a nice clean office. It's not just chiropractic but also kinesiology so it's more of a whole body approach rather than just the spine. The staff is friendly and professional. Their treatment has so far been good. I went for migraine treatment and I haven't had one since I've been going. I've been scheduling a week or two in advance so that I can get early appointments and so far it's been working out. The office is a brand new beautiful facility.

    I've waited 45 minutes in the waiting area each time I've gone (though I was on time) but there are plenty of magazines to choose from with comfortable seats.The staff is a little dry but courteous and after being directed to another room and waiting another 20-30 minutes, the doctor arrives.

     I had x-rays done and afterward the doctor examined my flexibility and pointed out the places he knew I would have pain. (Now this is my sense of humor but it could be helpful.  After painfully poking me 4 times and asking me 4 times if that hurts, I finally said, "Yes that hurts, you jerk!  I had a big smile on my face so he knew I was joking but he was still taken aback a little, my desired response tbh)I had to buy a Styrofoam doohickey to exercise with on two occasions which was annoying.

     The first visit was without an adjustment which was very disappointing but I understand why he waited until the x-rays came back.  I've seen him thrice and he's very happy with the results as am I.  My back has had two adjustments and I'm heading there again tomorrow.  He's maxing out my insurance visits so take that for whatever value it brings.
