What To Expect

We want to make sure that you are completely comfortable when you come in to see us. For some information about what your first visit will be like, read on! If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are more than happy to give you all the answers you need.

Getting Started

At Way of Life Wellness Center, we believe you have a right to feel alive, vital, joyous and free. We know that whatever limitations you might feel in your body – whether symptoms, pain, or disease – they all a call for change. However, when in distress, sometimes the hardest thing to know is what change to make. Connection to your body is your ticket to freedom.

We are experts in helping our clients to create a greater connection with their body’s wisdom no matter what the condition, symptom, pain or disease. We do this through a revolutionary system of care – Network Care – which assists people in reconnecting with their body through greater awareness of their own natural rhythms of breath, movement, and energy.

As established by the founder of Network Care, Donny Epstein, D.C, we have found that the tension, position and tone of the structures of the spine as well as the body’s habitual range of movement and capacity for breath, play a significant role in the expression of illness or wellness in any individual. By making precise, gentle contacts on the spine, we cue the brain and body to move from a state of being overwhelmed and defensive to a state of ease and growth.

Through the combination of outstanding spinal care, wellness education, and simple-to-use exercises, we partner with our clients to create short and long term outcomes which create immediate healing and sustainable transformation.

Your First Visit

We are very excited to welcome you to Way of Life Wellness Center to receive Network Care.  Your first visit is a special one as you will have an appointment with one of our doctors that will begin with an Initial Consultation.  During your consultation, the doctor will have an opportunity to find out how we can best serve your needs.  A fundamental part of this is reviewing a detailed Comprehensive Health Profile.  Please download the form from the link below and answer all the questions to the best of your ability and bring to your first visit.

The next form is our “Network Care Consent Form” Please print, read, sign and date the second page.  Whereas the first form gives us pertinent information about you, this form tells you about the care we provide in our office – Network Care – and some of the benefits of this particularly extraordinary care.

Following your consultation, you will receive a full spine and nervous system evaluation, specifically evaluating for defense posture and stress physiology, which are detriments to your health and wellness. Our chiropractic exam includes non-invasive scans called Surface EMG and thermography, giving us insight as to what may be causing your problems.  You will also receive your first network adjustment that day, which will begin assisting you to move from a state of defense into safety and ease.

Plan on spending an hour and fifteen minutes for your first visit.  At this point you may have already scheduled your second visit where the doctor will review the findings of your Initial Evaluation and give you recommendations for care. If you have not scheduled your second visit, please be prepared to schedule it at the beginning of your Initial Visit.

Below you will find the forms and a link to directions to our office.  Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions about anything prior to your visit. 

We look forward to seeing and serving you soon!

Warmest Regards,
Way of Life

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
