At Essential Health Chiropractic Studio, Dr. Sue Sutherland bolsters health through all-natural home and bodycare products. She specializes in network spinal analysis, a technique she has studied since 1996. While performing it, she delivers a sequence of light touches in spots where the spinal cord attaches to the spine. These touches help the patient stretch, breathe, and move in a manner that releases tension and restores the body to a balanced state.

She also leads educational workshops so her clients can learn how proper breathing techniques can relieve tension without having to interrogate a school of really relaxed-looking fish.
