Who We Are
Restored Health Chiropractic Mission & Vision
To provide the best individualized care to every patient, no matter where they are in their health journey.
Why the Unalome?
Traditionally, the unalome symbolizes a person's journey through life or to enlightenment. We wanted to build off of this and use it in our logo to describe a person's journey to health.
When we started the rebranding process, we envisioned an office that offered chiropractic care to individuals in every stage of their health journey. Maybe we are the first taste of alternative healthcare for somebody struggling with a chronic issue who has not been able to get answers using other routes. Or maybe we are the new chiropractic home to somebody who has seen a chiropractor for 20+ years and they are wanting to explore other therapies we offer. We want to care for everybody, no matter where you may be in the sometimes messy and not-so-straightforward journey to better health. We would be honored to serve as a part of your particular health journey.
“Wonderful chiropractor (Eric) and massage therapist (Alicia). They always listen to me. I had had some surgery and had to do modifications with my adjustments and massage, and they were more than willing to do whatever I needed. Excellent chiropractic office!”
