Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Salm has been my chiropractor for 12 years. She has helped me through many physical ailments and a few personal ones too. Recently I had shingles in my throat,ear,head,and across the side of my face. Then bells palsy followed the shingles. Dr. Salm performed what I call miracles with acupressure and acupuncture. My medical doctor said Dr. Salm did what she couldn't do with all of her medicine."
