Drs. Kirsten Sage and Dave Bourgouin straighten spines and flip self-healing switches with an array of chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage services. Massages begin with a chiropractic examination that enables therapists to plot out an individualized regimen of kneadings and chops. While therapists assiduously take notes, patients can discuss any underlying health issues and point out pains accrued while playing sports or hiding in air ducts to scare unsuspecting coworkers. Patients can then select from seven massage modalities, which range from the soothing strokes of Swedish massage to the energy-building herbal infusions of flower-essence therapy. The ancient healing art of acupressure employs focused finger pressure to stimulate self-healing, and the therapeutic deep-tissue massage translates Spanish love poems into Morse code to pacify angry muscles.
Doctor of Chiropractic Kirsten Sage, founder and namesake of Sage Health, has been healing for more than a decade, but she’s never prescribed a drug. Her methods are entirely natural, from chiropractic services to massage and acupuncture. Although many of her techniques date back to the world’s earliest healers, some represent modern advances. Dr. Larry Dahl works alongside Dr. Sage, bringing several years of experience to each chiropractic consultation and spine-saving treatment session.
