"I can't recommend them enough."
I suffered from recurring hip pain and upper back pain. Spencer and Kaila offered a unique approach to my chronic conditions. While other chiropractors and acupuncturists I had seen always treated the problems as separate conditions, Kaila and Spencer were quick to identify the root causes of my problems and treated them effectively. Spencer and Kaila discovered that the pain was a result of a weak core, poor flexibility, and most surprisingly, a poor response to feelings of anxiety I had been having. Until they asked, I really hadn't correlated my bouts of anxiety and flare-ups of pain. Once I reflected, it seemed so obvious. The combination of Kaila's acupuncture, Spencer's chiropractic treatments, and both of their strength and flexibility training and anxiety counseling made me a new man. Best of all, they taught me how to take care of myself. To this day, I have no more pain (or anxiety!). I only wish they would have stayed in town so I could go in for a tune up now and again. I haven't found anyone that comes close. I can't recommend them enough.
“Acupuncture became a much appreciated tool in helping to minimize and alleviate my pain.”
Kaila Cruttenden is an incredible acupuncturist and Chinese medical practitioner. I was in her care for three months on a weekly basis due to lower back and foot issues. She would help me strengthen my lower back muscles through work on different machines and floor exercises, as well as manipulating my hip and leg areas in different stretches to relieve pain. Kaila would also give me phenomenal deep muscle massages that loosened those frozen and tight areas that we're keeping me in discomfort. I never knew that hurting in that moment would bring so much relief after the massage! Kaila is an acupuncturist, but I'm afraid of needles, so only because of her gentle persistence and her wonderful abilities that I grew to completely trust, did I allow her to put needles in my back and foot! She was completely accurate about acupuncture and it's benefits and she was even a very painless "needle pusher"!! Acupuncture became a much appreciated tool in helping to minimize and alleviate my pain. Kaila is an experienced and highly qualified practitioner that I would recommend to anyone because her methods work!!
I can't say enough good things about Kaila and Spencer! I was passing through town on my way to a motorcycle race and they were able to squeeze me in and help loosen up my back. They are both very amazing people, and provided some of the best back care I have ever received. Thank you!!

“Kaila is not only very professional and effective but also extremely compassionate.”
I have been suffering with chronic lower back pain for 8 years and with very aggressive muscle spasms in my upper back for the past year. After using all the options at my disposal; chiropractic, massage, pharmaceuticals, products sold on the television - I found no lasting relief. After my first session with Kaila, my mother responded that she had not seen me so relaxed in years, the benefits stuck. I went to Kaila for several more visits where the benefits lasted hours longer each time. I am sitting typing this now with no muscle spasms at all. Kaila is not only very professional and effective but also extremely compassionate - which was so comforting during the treatments. She went out of her way to give me alternative medical options to help with my condition - even writing me emails in her own time to summarize her advice to me, enabling me to relax while being treated.
“Working as a team, they were able to pinpoint the trigger spots most likely causing the pain.”
For a number of years, I have experienced right side low back pain with diminished feeling in the outer part of my right leg. I have also suffered from a knot in my cervical area enhanced by tension and stress. I am also very conservative when it comes to any type of medical/chiropractic treatment. For that reason, I never seriously considered acupuncture until I was introduced to Kaila and Spencer. Working as a team, they were able to pinpoint the trigger spots most likely causing the pain. I decided to give acupuncture combined with strengthening and stretching therapy a try. I'm sure glad I did. From the very first painless acupuncture session, I experienced immediate relief in both the lower back and cervical areas which lasted longer than relief experienced from any previous form of therapy. The diminished feeling in the leg also lessened. I was very pleased with the treatment and professionalism of both Kaila and Spencer.
“They were so nice and informative and really tailored my treatment to meet my specific needs.”
Kaila and Spencer are amazing. After trudging through my physically demanding job with horrible neck and shoulder pain/spasms, I turned to them for help. I had never been to a chiropractor or acupuncturist so I was nervous and didn't know what to expect. They were so nice and informative and really tailored my treatment to meet my specific needs. I was very pleased that Spencer didn't just "crack and hack" as I call it, and used a lot of stretching, massage and other techniques in conjunction with adjustments. He used my background as an equestrian to help me understand how to use my core/specific muscles to speed my healing. He even informed me that I was breathing incorrectly! (who knew....whoops...) Kaila taught me how to relax. I'm constantly on the move and have a very hard time chilling out but somehow Kaila managed to get through to me. I'm sure it wasn't easy for her and I applaud her for her patience. I felt that Kaila's acupuncture along with Spencer's treatments worked so well together for a tense person like me. In addition to the actual treatment both of them have gone out of their way to show me exercises, stretches, nutritional advice and other things to do at home to help myself heal. The spasms are gone and I have the tools now to deal with the small amount of pain I occasionally have. I would recommend Elemental Back and Body to anyone!

“Great people to have on your side while getting yourself back on track to being a healthier, happier person.”
This is just a little note about Spencer and Kaila at Elemental Back & Body and the work that they have done for me. First of all I started out overweight, out of shape and very sore. They have worked on all of my sore spots, including my neck, back, elbows and knees. They have done great things, thanks to Spencer's patient and gentle manipulation and deep tissue work. Kaila's artful placement of her acupuncture needles has done a lot to relieve a lot of my tension, help relax my muscles and equalize my balance. I started out at over 245 pounds, andsince going on theirliver cleanse and diet modification, I am down to 185 pounds in 5 1/2 months. Both Spencer and Kaila have been nothing less than professional, patient and attentive. Great people to have on your side while getting yourself back on track to being a healthier, happier person. I truly thank them for all their help.
