A Testimonial from Micah - as written by Micah: (some spelling changes. The original can be seen at Life and Balance Centre).

Once upon a time there lived a little girl named Micah Nicole. The girl was sick. One day she went to a chiropractor named Dr. Tammy Verlaan where she was adjusted several times a month. After that the little girl is now feeling so well so she can play and sleep well without wetting in the night and she lived happy ever after. The end.

"I was suffering from bedwetting, poor eating, teeth grinding and hyperactivity. This affected my relationship with my mum and dad. After a couple of adjustments, I noticed some improvement. My eating is great, same as my bedwetting and teeth grinding. I can now play more and I can sleep soundly without wetting. It's awesome, as Chiropractic helps me a lot in everyday life. I would recommend Chiropractic to my friends, it's worthy."

Why would children go to see a Chiropractor?

Children deserve the best chance to express health and their peak potential. We know that it is the goal of the majority of parents to help their children reach 100%.  It is a child's Nervous System that controls their amazing development, it controls the person they will grow to be. Knowing this, it is imperative that their Nervous System is working properly. For this to occur their Nervous System must be free from intereference.


Chiropractic is a safe and natural way to remove interference from your child's Nervous System and help children develop to their fullest potential. Chiropractic care for children begins at pregnancy. All children deserve to have their Nervous System checked by a doctor of Chiropractic. Family care is the essence of the chiropractic wellness lifestyle.
