“Love that it is Hands On, Complete, Gentle, Subtle, Non-Invasive, and the entire body is treated.  My treatment from Dr. Barbara James has been life changing in the Best Possible way…..  Not only in restoring mobility and articulation in my major physical injury, but also greatly aiding in the mental and emotional fallout that can come with a physically life altering injury.  I have been receiving care for around 6 months, but will continue to receive only her care for as long as she remains in practice.  I strongly recollect saying to Dr. James, “I have received Better Care in 5 weeks of seeing you, than 15 years of treatment from the one and only chiropractor I had been seeing..” Unbelievable and Positively Life & BODY Better …THANK YOU DR. JAMES.”
-Colleen M.


“I have been a patient of Dr. James for 2 years and find that the Micro Alignment Therapy that Dr. James uses to be very effective, yet gentle and with long lasting results for overall health improvement.  I have recommended Dr. James to friends who are equally pleased with their results.  I am a regular visitor and appreciate the natural approach to keeping healthy and fit.”
-Betty M.


“This therapy has always helped relieve my back pain, which has ranged from total left side constant pain; to disc pain; lower back pain.  It is gentle and effective.  I have been with Dr James for 20 years this year and I can’t see myself going to anyone else. I always receive good advice, effective help and gentle reprimands!”
Shannon. C.


“I found that micro alignment started helping me almost immediately. I went into my first treatment with a very stiff back yet after the first few clicks of my spine I could feel it loosening up. Amazing.  I have been with Dr. James for about three months. Once the bad winter arrived, I had to suspend treatment, but I will continue again when summer sets in. I have enjoyed my visits to Dr. James. She is very knowledgeable, kind and endlessly sunny by nature. Her assistant, Bonnie, has the same welcoming personality which makes visits there a pleasure.”
-Diana .I. S.


“I call Dr. James my magic doctor! After micro alignment treatments with her, I come away feeling de-stressed and pain free. I have been a client of Dr. James for at least 10 yrs.”
-Glenna L.


“Like the easy and painless way, it works. I always had trouble with my neck and back. Now I only go a couple times a year with this treatment it is wonderful. I have been going to Dr. James for 4 years and I would like to see this practiced across the country.”
-Eva W.


“I moved to a different neighborhood and Dr. James was close. Lucky me! This treatment is less intrusive and just as effective as other forms of chiropractic care. It’s gentle and I received a great thorough explanation of the therapy and suggested exercises for preventative measures. To other doctors considering learning this technique, I say, Bravo!”
-Barb S.


“I first saw Dr. James in 1994 for chronic back pain that I had for over 20 years. I had endured repeated visits to conventional chiropractors as well as alternative treatments like Rhumart therapy and acupuncture, but nothing helped for very long. I was delighted with the micro alignment approach and saw immediate improvement, with almost complete elimination of pain following five short visits. After seventeen years pain free, I returned to find relief for a new shoulder problem. I highly recommend Dr. James and her treatment methods for many different problems.”
-Ed M.


“Since I found this therapy I would never go back to other therapies. They are too invasive (compared to Micro Alignment) and my body was getting worse every time I had a treatment.
~ Judy M.


“This treatment is so gentle anyone could be helped by it. When you are ready to heal, Micro Alignment therapy is incredible.
~ Joyce H.


“I was actually ready to give up trying to do all the things in life that meant so much to me….My first treatment produced amazing results and instant relief to a three year old problem…I hope more people become aware and have the opportunity to experience for themselves what Micro Alignment therapy can do for them.
~ Teressa W.


“I have found Micro Alignment therapy very effective. There is no pain, or excess pressure nor discomfort, which makes it very favorable for patients. Having worked for a chiropractor for a number of years, I would very much like to have more chiropractors trained and practicing Micro Alignment Therapy.
~ Jeanne Y.


“I have been a chiropractic patient for 21 years and received many treatments with varying techniques. I’d never heard of Micro Alignment Therapy. One treatment was enough to convince me that I never wanted to go back to the twisting, pulling and awkwardness of conventional chiropractic – there was no need. A treatment with Micro Alignment Therapy is the most valuable testimony to this technique.
~ Estelle T.


“I am a 53 year old female with a history of neck and low back problems dating back to age 11….I will never revert back to what I now consider to be the old method after having experienced Micro Alignment Therapy…. I particularly think it important for very young children who require treatments as they will never grow up experiencing that uncomfortable feeling associated with a therapy, and will therefore look after their bodies when they need treatment.
~ Roberta H.


“My daughter Ashlee was 10 weeks old and continuously cried and/or screamed with pain. She would arch her back and go totally rigid. I was told by a friend that she took her infant to a chiropractor for colic….Now my friends and family cannot believe the difference in Ashlee’s behavior – no more screaming, no more gas pains, she is happy, relaxed, sleeps better and eats better. Dr. James helped us enjoy our child rather than being stressed out with the constant crying!
~ Brenda A.
