To enrich mental well-being, Diana draws upon her life-coaching skills by arranging events such as lectures in which attendees learn to transform their negative thoughts into positive, empowering mantras.
The chiropractic team at The Joint...the chiropractic place has streamlined the chiropractic process. Virtually every aspect of the visitation is designed around patient convenience. Instead of scheduling appointments, patients simply walk in and fill out paperwork. A doctor is onsite to minimize wait time. During exams, patients stay comfortable in their street clothes or favorite footed pajamas while the doctors examine their spine, searching for subluxations and bulges. They devise a treatment plan that can include chiropractic adjustments, which typically only take about 10 minutes.
