  • Kyra G.
    Chiropractic Assistant & Wellness Advocate

    Kyra just recently moved to the state of New Hampshire from New York. However, she grew up right over the boarder in Maine. Kyra is looking forward to becoming a part of the community here in Rochester.

    Kyra went to York County Community College and studied Business, but her true passions are physiology and helping animals in need. She adopted her best friend Rosie, an elderly black lab mix, 3 years ago from a shelter that she volunteered at in New York. In her free time, she has taken up refurbishing antique furniture and bringing it back to life! Kyra loves bringing new life into old treasures! 

  • Andrea Sutcliffe, CR
    Fascial Structural Integration Specialist / Certified Rolfer

    I got involved with Fascial Integration over ten years ago, as I realized I needed something to manage my own daily pain and tightness.  I have a somewhat rare medical condition called Eagles Syndrome. 
     
    A small bone, called the Styloid bone, just under my right jawbone is out of place.  This causes all the nerves, muscles, blood vessels and fascia on the right side of my head, neck and elsewhere to be stretched just a little too tight. 
     
    So, in 2013, I graduated from the Dr. Ida Rolf Institute.  My formal education provided a good basis to start.  But it is the misplaced bone in my neck that gives me new challenges - and new opportunities to learn - every day.  What I learn about bringing real change to my own pain and tightness has become a great gift to offer others.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have never felt rushed through an appointment, and Dr. Faria has always asked questions and listened fully, offering suggestions, giving needed adjustments, and sending me home w/ stretches and exercises to help me through tough days. She is a very compassionate person and I respect her Chiropractic Skills, along with her nutritional counseling."

    Jared
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Faria and her knowledge of the body. She listens, she cares and she helps get to the bottom of any problems you may be having. She solved a 12 year health problem I have been having with my diet. I had no idea I had food allergies as there are no food allergies in my family. All because she treats the whole body not just the spine. She not only has me as a patient now she has my children, my husband, and other family members."
    Catherine
  • "(Dr. Faria) has helped me return to good overall health after a couple of injuries. She has also been a big part of identifying areas of concern and recommending preventative tools to prevent future injuries."
    Mark
  • "I've been a client of Dr. Faria's for several years now and she has helped me so much! I am a Radiologic Technologist at a busy hospital, and I truly believe her chiropractic skills are what "keeps me going." She's helped me with my migraine and tension headaches and my chronic muscular pain. Her knowledge of nutrition is outstanding and the regimen of supplements she has me on, has made me feel much better than I was. Also, my immune system is working well, so that I rarely get sick, even though I work in a hospital."
