What our clients say...

Melissa Castiglia
Melissa Castiglia
Andre is one of the best practitioners I’ve ever seen. He is so knowledgeable and full of empathy. The amount of times I’ve cried walking into our sessions because of my health is ridiculous. But each time, he has held space for me and assisted me to work through it. When I first came to see him, I struggled so much with neurological fatigue every single day due to a multiple sclerosis diagnosis. He explained our treatment plan so clearly, stage by stage (and still continues to keep me educated to this day). With his treatments, my fatigue got less and less. And my capacity grew more and more. I look forward to our sessions weekly and couldn’t recommend his services highly enough. He is a fantastic chiropractor, with an endless wealth of knowledge and compassion.
