Chiropractic is the healing science that places emphasis on maintaining the structural integrity and balance of the body, focusing primarily on spinal alignment. The goal of chiropractic care is to allow your body to heal itself and function optimally without the use of drugs or surgery.



Physical Therapy is a health profession involving care for those who experience temporary or permanent disability due to pain, injury or illness. The primary purpose of Physical Therapy is to reduce pain, increase range of motion, strengthen and improve functional mobility.

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment for back or neck pain due to disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, spinal stenosis and muscle spasms. We offer this FDA approved treatment in our office.


Acupuncture is an alternative treatment that has existed for over 3,000 years. Originating from ancient China, it is used to restore balance to the body with an aim toward total wellness. It is a safe, pain-free approach to healing used to activate the body's own healing process.

  • Angela Garbarino
    Weight Loss Coach

    Mentoring and helping others improve health is a passion of mine.  After experiencing my own health and weight struggles almost a decade ago, I successfully lost the weight which reversed several health conditions. Life for me before my weight loss journey was not enjoyable.  I remember the frustration, negative self-talk, exhaustion, brain fog, terrible digestion, and generally feeling terrible. Today, I am healthy, energetic, and vibrant. Pre-diabetes – gone, Hypothyroidism – gone, PCOS – gone...And there is NO GOING BACK!  Through my journey I learned valuable lessons that served me well. These are the tools I eagerly share with my patients today. I strive to help others open a new chapter of their lives for a new healthy body so they too can feel as wonderful for lifelong success.  As an educator and weight loss coach, I’m here to help each individual. I tailor coaching sessions to the needs of each person, as we all have our own unique struggles. Maintaining a healthy weight is really about putting all of the puzzle pieces of life together to fit in agreement to complete a total picture to create a picture of healthy living.  Nutrition is a big puzzle piece; however, other big pieces include lifestyle habits, stressors, & self-care to name a few. These are all important concepts I coach patients through for skill-building along the way. I’m there for my patients when they need me. Good communication is key in the patient-coach relationship. No judgements, just accountability and relatability.  I’ve been there too. As a native of New Orleans, I love and enjoy food too! I have adapted and evolved so I can now enjoy food in a healthier way to prevent a yo-yo diet pattern. Today I am a wife and proud mother of two children and so blessed to be able to share my knowledge with others. Coaching for me is not just a job, but an honor and a calling.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
