What our patients are saying...
"With a combination of heat, massage and manipulation, Dr. Radu Ioan has kept my aging body relatively pain free! I like the massage aspect of the treatment. Most Chiropractors I've been to only do the manipulation. I also like the fact that I don't have to wait for my appointments!"

"I am a devoted fan of Kirossage! I first came for treatment of a specific injury, but quickly converted to regular visits as I always feel SO much better after treatment. I enjoy the chiropractic benefits without any bone cracking adjustments and have recommended Kirossage to all my friends. It is a pleasure to "share" the good news with anyone who will listen to me rattle on about the caring and supportive staff and what a difference Kirossage has made in my life."

"Anytime I have a pain or knots in my back, shoulders and neck I go straight to Dr. Ioan! I swear I feel at least 80 percent better just after one treatment! He has magic hands that would help out any pain you have. He is the best in the west!"

"I have been suffering from herniated discs in my lower back and an arthritic condition in my neck for many years. On August 16, 2004, through a very high recommendation from a friend of mine, I went to see Dr. Radu Ioan for consultation. After an exam and analysis of my spine, neck, posture and my general health condition, I decided to be treated for the following couple of weeks. I find Dr. Ioan's Kirossage technique unique, extremely beneficial and truly healing in all aspects of physical fitness and health. Needless to say, I am still seeing him on a regular basis some 7 years later. I think, that alone, speaks for itself. Try it and see for yourself!"

"I'm an ex-ballet dancer in my mid fifties with every kind of orthopedic complaint you can imagine. My knee is missing parts, my back and hips are a mess, and I have what I jokingly refer to as "rocks" in my traps and neck muscles. I've had several chiropractors over the years, but most were fairly detached and mechanical and did the predictable types of adjustments and treatments. A friend recommended Dr. Ioan and warned me that he was "not your usual chiropractor". He does a very unique combination of massage he calls "Kirossage" and it really is the perfect name. Although I'm sure he is more than able and would do it if I asked, he doesn't automatically do the forced adjustments most chiropractors do. He starts with moist heat on your back, then uses this very specific pressure and massage to gently but firmly move your back into alignment. And then he massages out the "rocks"! I leave feeling no pain or stiffness or soreness at all, and this has never happened to me before with any other doctor. It's like getting the best massage you ever had, plus being aligned properly so you can carry on with your physical activities! I have not had any current injuries to approach him with yet (maybe because his work on me is so effective), but I feel absolutely confident that he can handle any injury problem. And he is such a warm, kind, friendly guy-very strong, and at the same time, very gentle. Maria, the office manager, is every bit as warm and wonderful as Dr. Ioan. They are easy to reach, she makes it easy to make or change appointments, and she truly cares about her patients. They work with most insurances, but this treatment would be worth any amount of money. I am more than happy to answer any questions about these folks, and I will be their patient forever."
