Without a back, you'd never know which way was forward, making dramatic exits confusing and awkward. Reward your back for not being up front with today's Groupon. For $29, new patients get a chiropractic consult and exam ($150 value), x-rays ($75 value), a massage ($50 value), and adjustment ($50 value) at Skyline Wellness Center in Alexandria.
Skyline Wellness Center offers a whole-person approach to health and wellness, as opposed to podiatrists and patella specialists, who simply don’t want to hear about chronic headaches and recurring dreams about being a giant redwood. Your visit to Skyline starts off with a consultation with your friendly practitioner, W. Jean-Luc Sansfaute, Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Sansfaute will ask about any health concerns and your expectations so he can come up with the best treatment. After your consultation, you’ll get a complete examination with x-rays to investigate your condition. You’ll finish your visit with an expert 20-minute massage to loosen up your muscles and help encourage your body to heal itself. After your massage, you can schedule a follow-up appointment for your adjustment, so Dr. Sansfaute will have plenty of time to study your x-rays beforehand.
Chiropractic isn't like astrophysics, where any quack with a telescope can set up shop; doctors of chiropractic receive at least four academic years of education and pass national board examinations before receiving their ceremonial telescopes. Dr. Sansfaute is a graduate of Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX.
Patients say sitting at a desk for eight hours a day isn't the same after the amiable back-benders are through with you: joints fit together, back pain vanishes, and shame over being ditched at prom dissolves. A session can also help with nerve, muscle, and organ disorders, and fight fatigue and depression.
Though there are few online reviews, two Google Maps users give Skyline Wellness Center a perfect five-star rating:
- I was very surprised at how warm and welcoming the place was and the staff was super friendly. Dr. Jean-Luc took the time to explain everything from the time of the examination to the time of treatment. He put me at ease and most importantly he took my pain away. – Lance
- [Office manager] Megan and Dr. Jean-Luc are very friendly! The office has convenient hours and was never crowed, in my experience, which meant quick adjustments and THE FULL ATTENTION of the Dr. Not only that but the adjustments were very deliberate and strong; the BEST that I've ever had. – Sean
Skyline Wellness Center
Drawn by the holistic lure of chiropractic medicine, Paris native and owner Dr. W. Jean-Luc Sansfaute teamed up with an acupuncturist and a massage therapist to tackle ailments from all holistic fronts.
A wide range of techniques allows the practitioners to address both illness and physical pain, for which they offer immediate relief. Using a "whole-person approach" to wellness, the staff searches for underlying causes of pain and helps each patient adopt a healthier lifestyle with nutritional counseling, corrective exercises, and trigger words that make them suddenly crave apples.
