Overweight and a herniated disc in my neck that resulted in lingering numbness in my left hand and fingers.
Treatments that were tried before Elevation Health:
Dieting and exercise but with no results.
How has Elevation Health impacted your life?
Since receiving chiropractic adjustments and attending the blockbuster workshop events, I have lost over 30 pounds. I am now at my goal weight of 135 for the first time in 20 years, the numbness in my fingers is gone and I now have loads of energy to get me through the day.
Thank you Elevation Health,

I have been under the care of Elevation Health for three years. Before then I had a history of debilitating migraine headaches, high blood pressure, tinnitus, was overweight, a weakened immune system having recently recovered from shingles, anemia, lacked energy, was overly anxious and stressed out, lower back pain caused by poor hip alignment, as well as stiffness in the neck and shoulders. One day I was introduced by a friend who was a patient and right away I agreed to an evaluation. When I got the results I was shocked to learn that there was a lot more going on than I was physically aware of. I then realized that in order to avoid more problems down the road, I had to act quickly and get help to deal with the root cause of all those ailments.
After I became a patient, I knew that I had to make the most of the opportunity I had been given to make it right. This was my chance to get a new lease on life. After the first adjustment I immediately felt some relief, especially in my neck area. The first few months I had to go in three times a week then eventually it was twice a week and then I graduated to the maintenance phase which is once a week. With every visit I noticed that I was making a lot of progress and was therefore determined not to miss my appointments.
In due course, I realized that I had to adopt all of the core four principles of Elevation Health (Function, Fitness, Nutrition and Education). I had my adjustments as scheduled in order to have a healthy nervous system. The Nutrition component was challenging as I had to make drastic lifestyle changes, but once I did it paid off. The Elevation Health Nutrition Program is very comprehensive. I underwent a detailed and thorough detoxification regimen in order to get rid of all the toxins accumulated over the years so that I get the most out of the good nutrition I was to adopt. The Education component, which includes events attendance such as workshops, has been an eye opener. There is always such a wealth of information at every event that I can not afford to miss any of the workshops. I appreciate the fact that the doctors spend the time to do all the research and summarize the facts in such a way that is precise and easy to understand. The Fitness component has enabled me to come full circle because I have learned how to exercise right and also get the most out of my routine in less than half the time.
In the short time I have been with Elevation Health I have been transformed in so many ways. I feel great, have lots of energy, hardly any aches or pains, lost about thirty five pounds, I’m less anxious or stressed out. I had customized orthotics specially made to relieve my lower back pain which was due to a misaligned hip. I am now able to stand for hours without feeling any strain. I have not felt this good in many years.
My goal is optimal health in order to avoid chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease among others. I am going to achieve this by continuing chiropractic care and making lifestyle changes that can keep illness at bay. Like the Elevation Health doctors always remind us, chronic diseases are extremely expensive and so investing in one’s health will reap dividends in the future. With this in mind, I hope to live out my full God-given health and life potential without interference.
Thank you very much to the entire Elevation Health Team for your tireless commitment and dedication to educate and help people of all walks of life to get better so that they can realize their full potential. God bless you.

I have been blessed with my experience at Dr. Hartley’s office. I was so pleased with my experiences that when my grandson started having severe headaches, my first thought was to have his nervous system checked by Dr. Hartley. After a couple of adjustments, I am happy to say that his headaches are almost completely gone! Praise God! Since then, his mother, father, brother and sister have joined the journey to better health at Elevation Health!
Dr. Hartley is the most professional, informative and personal doctor I have ever been to. She knows you and is concerned about everyone’s care and future. Always ready to lend an ear and offers great advice. I wouldn’t have had the success that I have experienced without the wonderful care and personal attention I have received at Elevation Health!
May God Bless You All,

**Prior to chiropractic care, our family was dealing with chronic discomfort and periodic pain. We had no regular care or health maintenance care. We are not big “medicine” people so the chiropractic lifestyle was an easy adjustment for us. A healthy nervous system made sense and we are now working on keeping our whole body/family healthy!
In the beginning, we came for regular chiropractic adjustments, did our at home exercises & therapy. My son Bryce came because of headaches, my husband Tad is working on chronic pain and high blood pressure, and I worked on low back discomfort. Now my other children, Emileigh, Lillie & Owen come in to make sure their nervous systems are functioning properly and their immune systems are strong! There is success when your spine is in line & your body is working like it should. Who knew that my husband’s blood pressure could come down so drastically and towards a normal level so quickly?!
Dr. Hartley is one the most “down to earth” doctors we know. She really takes her time with us, has a kind spirit about her. She knows her “stuff”. Dr. Hartley, Kim & Rachel have become part of the family J

Health Problems before Elevation Health:
Asthma. Kelly is a soccer athlete, but got to the point where she could not play more than 10 minutes before getting short of breath and having to come off the field.
What treatments did you try first?
Went to the family medical doctor and told her to just keep doing her asthma inhaler. She went to at least two specialists and had blood work and several tests done only to be told the asthma was a condition she would have to live with.
What has Elevation Health chiropractic care done for you?
Kelly has been receiving regular chiropractic adjustments along with important dietary changes. Within 6 weeks of starting care, Kelly no longer had to use an inhaler and has not had any asthma problems or episodes while playing sports! Of course, this has greatly improved her level of play in soccer.
