I put off coming into see Dr. Barry because of time because I work across town & it’s hard for me to break away from work, because I’m tired after work… blah blah blah. I finally made my back a priority as it started locking up and causing all sorts of pain. Here I am having my back stretched and preparing for an adjustment- one that I know will help in the long run! Thank you Doc!


A friend of mine recommended me to Dr Barry about a year ago. I was have lower back pain so bad that it hurt to set or stand. After four treatments it was much better, I continued to see Dr Barry and now haven’t had any pain for 8 months. Not ONLY does Dr Barry adjust you but you get a massage as part of the treatment



I have been going to Dr. Matthisen for 2 years as a UAA student athlete. He helped me get back into training after a bad sprained ankle within a week. I also went to him after getting whiplash in a car accident and I did not need insurance! I still see him regularly for just everyday pain. His massage therapists are the best and the staff is always super friendly! I will continue going to Dr. Matthisen because he is awesome and I know I can trust him and his judgement.



Have been visiting this establishment for the past 15 plus years. Dr barry has done great work. Most recently I have been seen by Dr. Bryan. Very Informative, educated, thorough, and caring. His true goal is to help clients achieve maximum relaxation without the daily aches and pains. Thank you for all the years of continued support thru little issues to post accident care. Cheers.
