Our schedule is still light due to the hurricane, and we want to put our time to good use. There is no set fee for a massage, all proceeds will be donated to Irma relief efforts, pay what you choose. This is not just for patients - if you know anyone that needs destressed, including seniors, first responders, utility workers, etc., all are welcome to schedule as we have availability. We will schedule 1/2 hour and 1 hour appointments, from now through Friday the 22nd.

[09/13/17]   We will be open Thursday morning at 9 am. We think the phones will be working, but if you have problems contacting us, email us at [email protected], we will check the email frequently.

[09/10/17]   Reposted: Friends in Manatee Co. Please be aware that Manatee Memorial Hospital was evacuated (due to being near the water) and is closed. Do not go there if you have an emergency. Lakewood Ranch hospital is open. Our physician group is making emergency preparations for additional staff and we are adding providers. Currently we do not expect much increase in patients until after the eye has moved over us and EMS is back in operation. That means we are expecting a massive increase in emergency patients in the aftermath of this storm. PLEASE only come to ER if you have an actual emergency. This means heart attack, stroke, broken bones, cut that need stitches. NOT sniffles or coughs! If you must come to the ER please remember this is a small facility and waits may be very long. Also please remember many of our colleagues may very well have lost everything in this storm and instead of being with their families and picking up the pieces they will be there taking care of others. Be kind and be patient. We are all in this together. Good luck and stay safe.
Please repost to get as many as possible to see this.

[09/08/17]   Our office will be closed on Monday. You have our best wishes and prayers that you will all be safe in the coming days!

K-Laser therapy for an elephant!

Lasers! Elephants! Therapy! Osh, our 23-yr old bull elephant, receives light therapy laser treatment on his ear using a K-Laser Medical laser. This was a test - Osh doesn't currently have any skin problems, the test was to see if he will be comfortable holding his ear steady and allow us to do the treatment if needed in the future. The treatment is very comfortable for the patient, and Osh passed the test with flying colors!
