Dear Patient,

I have always loved fixing things whether it was treating my pets, making plants grow, home repairs or tailoring clothes. Every day of Chiropractic College was learning about our amazing body and it's capabilities to heal. I am now living my passion, using my hands and knowledge of the body to help people reach their potential so they can live their passion as I have had the privilege to do.  The methods I use are gentle; to keep comfort upper-most in my therapeutic considerations.  I have some high-tech equipment, however, nothing has been sacrificed in maintaining high touch.  My personal philosophy is that we will not only provide relief for your discomfort, but also coach you to prevention and high-level wellness.

If you haven’t been in or a while, I invite you to drop in.  If you are a regular, I look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.  If we have not yet met, please come in for a consultation and adjustment.  Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being a part of your health care.

Yours in Good Health,

Janette Asaro Pena, D.C.
