I started seeing Dr. Cavanaugh to facilitate recovery from a jaw surgery last summer. I soon found out that his treatment was effective for other health issues I had had such as low back pain and acid reflux. Recently, I was going through stressful time, and I happened to have an appointment with Dr. Cavanaugh. Even though, the reason for the visit was not for emotional distress, I clearly felt how I held my emotions and stress in my body, and I felt my body released them during the treatment.
Dr. Cavanaugh is compassionate, gentle, knowledgeable and open minded, and I deeply appreciate him choosing to be in a healing profession.
