I contacted Angela and immediately felt at ease with her and assured she was looking out for my best interest. I received a thorough verbal consultation and physical assessment. She was very accommodating to my schedule and planned her treatments accordingly.
With each session I felt improvement. Not only did I feel the improvement but I could see it too. The results were both impressive and encouraging. My overall improvement at the end of my treatment course was remarkable.

How it works ...
Step by step
Schedule a Consult
Let’s Talk About You
Tell me about you. Your dreams, goals, what you hope to accomplish, and how you’d like for me to help you. I’ll send you a questionnaire to help focus in on your desires and how I can help you make them a reality. Once you’ve filled it out, send it back to me sometime before your scheduled visit so I have time to look it over before we get together.
In-Home Session or Video Chat
I’ll text you to confirm our appointment the day before. For in-home sessions, I’ll also text you when I’m on my way to your home. For video sessions, I will contact you via video chat platform at the scheduled time so you can show me what’s going on with you.
At the first session, I’ll take a look at your alignment, posture, take some measurements, check for muscle tightness, joint mobility, and diastasis recti (in-home sessions only), and ask some questions. Then we will come up with a plan together to get you where you want to be.
Example goals: “I want to close up my diastasis recti and have a strong core.” Or, “I would like to be able to wake up in the morning without back pain.” Or, “I would like to improve my gut health so I eat without worry.”
Your goals and direction are up to you. I’ll be here to support you and give you pointers along the way.
Supportive Exercises & Remedies
After we go over your goals, I can help you make some tweaks to your current exercise plan or design one for you if you don’t have one already. Next we discuss you including what’s great about your posture/movement and what could use some TLC. I will demonstrate and have you practice specific exercises so you can learn to create great movement patterns that will give you the power to take care of you in order to support your body through its self-healing potential. In addition to specialized hands-on treatments. Finally, I offer natural DIY solutions that are safe and simple to use between sessions as needed to manage any remedial symptoms and promote healing.
After our session, I will put all the information together in a way that will be easy to track and follow so you can take the reins when you’re ready. You will receive a printable handout of the notes from our chat including an illustrated guide to the specific treatments we discussed.
Whether through regularly scheduled appointments, video/phone consults, or just text or email check-ins, I’m happy to be there for you in the way that works best for your time, budget, and learning style.
Up-Front, No Surprises Pricing
Don’t you hate it when you go in for medical services and don’t find out the cost until after you’ve already had the service done? Same here! Our pricing is up-front and transparent so that you will never have to wonder what you might be billed for later. All of our services have a flat, per session rate plus mileage fees depending on location. All we ask is that you pay before or at the time of each visit. That’s it.
I was experiencing severe back pain daily. Most mornings were a struggle to get out of bed. It affected my daily activities.
With consultations, Angela was able to see me in my element and work out exercises that I could do almost anywhere! I was able to chart and see my progress until I had on most days no back pain at all!!
With Angela’s help I was able to go from feeling and being immobile to being able to move freely with hardly experiencing pain in my back. I am grateful for her expertise and positive Christian attitude toward knowing and healing the body.
She’s amazing! I went to the chiropractor for 17 years. Different kinds. None of them could fix my pelvis.
A month with Angela and the 2″ difference between my legs due to my crooked pelvis was gone! Oh, and my 2 1/2 finger width diastasis recti is gone too!

For the past 20 years I have worked as a Practice Manager for a medical practice. With a lot of responsibility and long hours the stress and fatigue began to cause neck and shoulder pain.
Dr. Angela has made my life totally enjoyable and provided the comfort for productive work. As a firm believer in physical exercise and good diet, a consistent treatment for tension is very important.
Aging is not easy. However, with regular preventive therapy my body is able to endure stress and hard work without pain.
