~~~~~~~~~~~~November’s theme - Chiropractic Care ~~~~~~~~~~~

Dr. Carly Tokar - Tokar Family Chiropractic

Common chiropractic questions are: What is it? Is it safe? Does it hurt? Why would an expectant mom or child need to see a chiropractor?

Chiropractic is a natural, safe, gentle and effective way to address a number of common health conditions & ailments with a holistic and vitalistic approach. Even more importantly it is a proactive lifestyle choice to help promote and maintain optimal health & wellness.

Join us at NBW on
November 17th when Dr. Carly Tokar will discusses the many benefits of chiropractic care for you and your family, as well as answer all of your questions, and even share her personal health story that led her into becoming an advocate for natural health care through chiropractic!


How are we helping the community:

Natural BirthWorks hosts a monthly community outreach event, inviting women and their families to stop in and learn about all of the wonderful care they can receive - and have some fun!

We are fortunate to have onboard several providers offering special rates to help meet your financial situation. Currently "Yohi", our Acupuncturist, offers community visits for those in need; Toshani, our Yoga instructor, offers a Pranayama class at a "love donation". We are in the process of creating a non-profit,
‘All Women Matter’, which will offer prenatal care and breastfeeding support to uninsured women within the community.


We’re excited to join together in one space for your exceptional holistic care!
