within five minutes his agitated demeanor changed

Dr. Melissa is amazing at what she does! Her gentle and calming nature made both myself and our child feel at peace. Our Sully was very Uncomfortable and agitated due to the cutting of his new teeth and with Dr. Melissa’s cranial work followed by an adjustment within five minutes his agitated demeanor changed and he pooped + a little later took a long nap! (yAY!!) So thankful our eyes have been opened to chiropractic care! To this day all of our kids are still under consistent chiropractic care!

Within two months, the pain was gone

I began seeing Melissa last year for shoulder/neck issues. I had seen several Chiropractors, spent thousands of dollars, literally, with no relief. I was told that shoulder issues usually take about 6 months to heal. Within 6 visits my shoulders felt so much better. Within two months, the pain was gone. It's a recurring issue and I do have to go in for tune ups, but to be able to turn at night without waking up in pain, to be able to reach for something without stopping mid-way, is fantastic. Carol, at the front desk is wonderful. Melissa is a blessing, and I can honestly say that I have never written that about any practitioner before.

getting my head back on straight...literally

Dr. Melissa is fantastic. Her care has been integral in me getting my head back on straight...literally... as well as helping my body stay mobile and aligned. I've also used Dr. Melissa cranial facial release services and I cannot recommend it enough! Feels like I can breathe more oxygen into my brain every time I leave - thanks Doc!

started feeling benefits right away

I wasn't really sold on chiropractic work until working with Dr. Melissa. She is so thorough with her initial exam and knowledgable that I feel completely confident with her and started feeling benefits right away (better sleep). Her office always smells really nice and Carol at the front desk is a doll! Always a great experience popping in to see these ladies!

Now my mom begs to get adjusted because she feels so safe at Life Chiropractic

I have been seeing Dr. Melissa for years. When we began treatment I was dealing with chronic pain and miss alignment. After some x rays and a few apts I was already feeling a positive change. I love her cozy office and friendly staff. She is very insightful and offers me home exercises and tips to keep my spin healthy. Dr. Melissa is authentic and has tons of experience in her field. I even brought my mom who is often reluctant to care. Now my mom begs to get adjusted because she feels so safe at Life Chiropractic. I highly recommend this to anyone in pain or just in need of minor adjustments for balance.

I trust her with my whole family

Dr. Melissa treated my husband and I for the past 2 years. She is AMAZING!! I've relocated away a few months ago from the Bay Area and miss her tremendously! Two years ago I was training for 2 half marathons and was having severe hip pain. It was by random that I came across a booth at my gym where they were giving free consultations with a chiropractor. After a quick consultation, Dr. Melissa invited me to see her at her office. I was hesitant at first because I'm cheap and was hoping my hip would heal itself....But I realized nothing is more important than my own health and wellbeing so I went. It was hands down best decision I ever made. Not only did Dr. Melissa see me through two half

Dr. Melissa changed my life and I am forever grateful!

Dr. Melissa changed my life and I am forever grateful! I have dealt with vertigo-like symptoms since 2008 and my "episodes" can last up to several weeks with non-stop dysequilibrium (I feel like I'm on a boat 24/7). I don't have traditional vertigo so none of those treatments/meds/etc have helped. I have tried all kinds of things over the years and then I met Dr. Melissa. In my first visit with her I was in the middle of an episode. I had nasal ballooning done and I had relief that lasted the rest of that day and into the next one. As we completed the series I was dizziness-free for longer and longer periods of time until I was basically normal. The treatments are intense and worth it since

Dr. Melissa has helped me with a nagging lower back pain I've had for the past few years. I can't believe I've waited this long! My initial evaluation was very thorough and I immediately felt comfortable in her care. I've been seeing her for a few months and I can feel the difference all over. Not only has she helped me with back pain, she has also supported me with knee pain, tightness in my shoulders, and jaw issues! I'm so thankful she was recommended to me. I highly suggest you pay a visit to the office and meet Dr. Melissa in person. Thank you Kate!

Wellness starts with "we" and "I" is the lonely letter in illness

Dr Melissa is a powerful healer with her grounded and gently-firm approach to Chiropractic care. I have been seeing her for nearly four years, at least every other week as part of my care plan for treating the symptoms of Endometriosis. In addition to seeing her myself, I have recommended her to a number of other people who are now seeing Dr. Melissa regularly so the ripple effect of her care for her clients is having a remarkable impact on the healthful lives of many people! I am honored to recommend Dr. Melissa to become part of your care team for both preventative wellness and the treatments of a variety of symptoms you may be experiencing. If you share your situation with Dr. Melissa, n
