How Effective Is Massage Therapy?

  • "Amazing is an understatement. Dr Jameson and his staff are the sweetest most caring people I have ever dealt with. After suffering from headaches since 2009 and not being able to find a reason why I went to Dr Jameson. He found the problem and started treatment. I have now been headache free for the first time in years and starting to feel normal again. I can't thank Dr. Jameson and his staff enough."

  • "Dr. J has been helping my husband, son, daughter in law, and friend with headaches, sinus problems, and back issues. When Tolberts back goes out, we head down to see Doc and he gets almost immediate relief. Within a couple of adjustments he is back to normal. Thanks again..."
