I first came to Collyard Chiropractic in December of 2011, needing help with depression and anxiety. I was tired of my family doctor telling me I needed to be on medication that would treat how I was feeling. I was desperate for another form of treatment.

My first visit with Dr. Carrie made me feel like I had finally found where I was supposed to be for healthcare. Dr. Carrie actually listened to me, first as a doctor, then as a fellow wife and mom. She suggested acupuncture, much to my dismay (needles!? in my back!?!). Since nothing else had previously worked, I trusted her judgement. After about a month of acupuncture treatments (roughly 8-10 visits) I was amazed at how much better I felt and was sleeping better than I had in a very long time.

Soon after my first acupuncture treatment I attended one of Dr. Carrie’s essential oils classes. I learned what oils to use to treat certain conditions and how to apply them. I immediately started using them on myself and my 18 month old. The combination of acupuncture and essential oils completely turned our family’s well-being around! I use oils almost daily as a preventative measure against illness with much success. In the past year and a half we have only made one extra clinic visit, outside of annual physicals. We have dramatically cut down the duration’s of colds and I have learned to treat an ear infection without a trip to the doctor!

My family and I are so grateful to Dr. Carrie, Julie and Laura for the care we receive, from adjustments and acupuncture, to caring for our 3 year old Reese while mom and dad receive treatment. We love that the office is kid friendly and Reese loves playing in the toy room and visiting with Julie. We have recommended Collyard Chiropractic to everyone, especially if traditional medical treatment has not been successful.
