"When my shoulder was in excruciating pain, my primary care doctor spent 10 minutes diagnosing it, decided it was a rotator cuff inflammation, gave me a cortisol shot, and sent me on my way.  When that didn't fix it, he suggested that the next step was going to be expensive and painful shoulder surgery that would take years of therapy to heal.  Instead, Amanda worked with my chiropractor to diagnose my TOS, and develop a treatment plan with her, her staff, and a physical trainer, that had me healed in 8 months!" - S.E.

"I have had massages, facials, and waxes at Fusion and I am never disappointed! I do want to take the time though to give feedback after my Brazilian wax with Kebree today. This was my first wax experience with Kebree and it was the best experience I have had (including both at Fusion and at other locations). Kebree is friendly, professional, and (maybe most importantly for waxing) very gentle in her approach. She made sure I was comfortable and the wax was as quick, painless, and relaxing as it could possibly be. I am looking forward to my next appointment!" - A.W.
