Back Pain Relief

Dr. Coffman first treated me for back pain that reoccurred after two years. My surgeon had told me I had back spurs, and I didn’t believe there was a treatment for the pain. I couldn’t lie down without pain. After one visit with Dr. Coffman, I slept pain-free all night! I had complete relief from my debilitating back pain. It’s amazing to observe the dramatic effects of such gentle treatment. -Sharon M.

Migraine Relief

I first saw Dr. Coffman after a horribly bad fall. I hit the back of my head so severely I was having extremely bad migraines daily. It seemed like a miracle that after one very gentle treatment, I saw some improvement. We had to work pretty slowly because my system couldn’t handle very much at a time. Within another four treatments, the migraines were gone for good. I cannot say enough good about my experiences with Dr. Coffman. She is also very caring, compassionate and serenely joyful. Her office and staff are calm and peaceful. I highly recommend her! – Pam S.

Help After Fall

“I am so impressed with Dr. Maria Coffman’s work. I had fallen last Friday and even though it was not a bad fall, I was having much pain in entire left leg, jaw, and shoulder. It was even affecting my walk. In just one, very gentle treatment, I feel so much better. My hips were not balanced and many other issues from the fall. I recommend her as excellent. She and her office staff are lovely and welcoming. The office has the feeling of peace and calm and healing.” -Pamela S.

Relief from Anxiety

“Since seeing Dr. Coffman, my anxiety has decreased dramatically. I have also gained a clearer focus and better awareness of myself and surroundings. Thank you, Dr. Coffman!” – Tekla T
