Meet The Team
Meet your Office Manager Priscilla: Hello my name is Priscilla. I have been working in the chiropractic field for just about 7 years. As a young child my Mother would take me to see the chiropractor all the time. I remember loving being there, and when I left, I felt better. As a teenager and straying from chiropractic for a while, I developed a stomach condition called Colitis. At the age of 17 I was unable to function and live a regular life. With my medical doctors continuing to mask the problem with pain pills, and my life decreasing before my eyes, I decided to make a change. I went to see my chiropractor, and within that year I was off all my medication. My stomach condition had nearly vanished. It was then that I decided to dedicate my life to educating people on the benefits of chiropractic care. It saved my life. How you ask? I was severely subluxated. My spine was so compressed that it was putting pressure on my nerves that run right into my intestinal system, causing all my discomfort. Chiropractic relieved the compression and allowed my body to function properly. Now you can understand why I am so passionate about what I do. As a certified chiropractic assistant, advocate, and educator it is my promise to you as our patient to
help the doctor in what ever he needs to relieve the underlying cause that is Subluxation! At the age of 25 I live a happy life with my fiancé Matt and our five fur-children (Bella-Boxer, Titus-Boxer, Jade-Boxer, Zeus-Rottweiler, Isis-Rottweiler) in Elk Grove. It is never a dull moment at our house, but we love every minute of it.
I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment,
In health, Priscilla Goddard
Meet our new Massage Therapist Cathrine Duran “Cat”. I was a traveling chef for almost a decade until I had a bouldering accident that ended my career. After having to fly back to the United States for surgery, the cost, pain, and emotional scars left me feeling broken and deflated. I found yoga as a way to open my heart, my breath to expand my lungs, physical therapy to strengthen my bones, and massage to heal my muscles. As I started to mend, I realized I wanted to pass on the knowledge I was gaining to others, so they too could share in the gift of self healing. This is work I believe in because I have felt the changes in my own mind, body, and soul. I continue to add modalities to help the process of using movement through ones own body to promote health and facilitate comfort.

I offer various modalities of massage. Each session will be customized for what you need. Swedish for more relaxation, deep tissue for tight spots, joint mobilization to increase range of motion, or a combination of various techniques.
Myofascial therapy is very focused work. If you have pain, or trouble moving areas of your body, an initial assessment will tell me what muscles are the root of suffering. These sessions come in a package format, and extra time is needed for assessments.
Massage can help lengthen muscles, but a full focus on stretch can help regain flexibility and open connective tissue to allow more movement for the skeletal system as well as blood flow. Active, passive, or Thai stretches may be used.
