    I am very interested in taking your 1..5 hr class. I am unable to make it today. Are you going to have another? Unfortunately, I just saw this today.

      Hello Carolyn! Thank you for your interest in the class! I’m thinking of re-scheduling the class for Thursday December 8th at 6:15pm. Will that work for you? Warmly, Dr. Dawn

    I completed a registration form at the Grange, is that sufficient?

      Hi Jeanette!

      Before arriving at an initial exam, go ahead and complete the 2-page history form on the website! It’s more extensive and helpful to our time during an initial consult, than our very short meetings at a Farmer’s Market or other events when we give away ‘magical’ mini-stress-relief sessions. 🙂

    Hello Dr. Dawn,

    I am visiting Manzanita from Portland as I often do. Recently, I saw your Prcatice’s name on the Contemplative Arts website.
    I am 59 years old and have a slight scoliosis that I have known about since I was in my 30’s. I have kind of a trick right sacroiliac. Over the years, I try to keep the body healthy with yoga and walking. Some times I have gone in for monthly chiropractic adjustments, but not in the last year. I have noticed a lot more fatigue in the last 3 years. Lately tho, I have gotten better thru nutritional changes and adding certain supplements to my diet such as amino acids, and others. Any way, saw your informational videos on your website and your approach to treatment makes sense to me. Since as I am getting towards my 60’s, I would like to learn more about maintaining and improving my spinal health and in turn my overall health.

      Dear Mary, I’m delighted you contacted us! I’ve had the pleasure of not only helping many people with scoliosis, recurrent sacroiliac joint problems, and fatigue, but also in optimizing overall health, wellness, and energy levels. I am looking forward to assisting you in living a more vibrant, energized, flexible/strong and joyful life! -Dr. Dawn
