Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.

Somers Chiropractic & Wellness
At Somers Chiropractic & Wellness, a team of chiropractic doctors, massage therapists, and front-desk staff collaborates to restore patients' health. Their friendly approach encourages patients to relax and voice their concerns, which doctors use to tailor treatments to help stop back pain, headaches, or a growing appreciation of slam poetry. Dr. Eric Somers, the clinic's chief chiropractor, draws on his background in athletic training to identify and address sports injuries. For some conditions, he prescribes low-intensity laser therapy, a nonsurgical treatment in which he shines a laser-light probe on damaged tissue with the aim of boosting circulation and speeding healing. Massage therapists such as Patricia Perdomo—a stroke survivor who has traveled the chiropractic path to recovery—marshal deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and Swedish massage modalities to ease pain, tension, and stress.
