Dr. Eckel strongly believes that in order for individuals to express their true health potential they must live congruent to their environment, thus emphasizing a true chiropractic lifestyle to each of her patients. As a cancer survivor herself, the importance of preventative care and healthy living is extremely important. Therefore she focuses on educating her patients on how they eat, move and think- because she feels this will make the biggest impact on the patients health, healing and recovery. She believes that maintenance of health is far superior to the treatment and diagnosis of disease, therefore there is no better time to start your chiropractic journey than now. From newborns to the aging, the recreational to the Olympic athlete, she encourages her patients to get their body checked regularly. Her ultimate goal is for her patients take back their health and live to be 100 years old on purpose.
