What EveryBODY Needs with Dr. Ann Barter

Your health should be your biggest priority. Chiropractic and integrative care specialist Dr. Ann Barter says taking care of your health earlier is a huge gift. She sees a lot of people coming in who’ve put their health on the back burner for many years and think that they can get it back. From thyroid issues, infections, infertility issues in women, overall fatigue, and overall wellbeing, Dr. Barter has seen it all. As someone who had struggled with some stress and anxiety issues herself, Dr. Barter realized what some of her clients were going through. That’s what got her into Neurotransmitter Therapy and neuro-supplementation. Dr. Barter explains how neurotransmitter deficiency is causing a lot of conditions, and why it’s important to supplement our neurotransmitter and keep the gut microbiome healthy. read more

In Chiropractic philosophy, the goal of treatment is to help the body heal naturally. We help create an environment that removes stresses or triggers to allow the body to do its own healing. Providing Chiropractic manipulations takes stress off of the nervous system and realigns the body to help it perform with more coordination, relieve strain on joints, and decrease pain. We do soft tissue techniques to stimulate healing and balance musculature and fascia. We prescribe dietary supplements to support immune, digestive, lymphatic, and energy producing pathways. We help people pinpoint dietary triggers, overwhelming stresses and often refer to different practitioners to help dial in the areas we don’t specialize. All of what we do is to help the body optimize itself, because the body has the ability to do that. read more
