In addition to massage, Jennifer has completed an Integrative Health Coaching certification program with The Institute of Integrative Nutrition and a 200 hour Psychologically-Sensitive/ Trauma-Informed Yoga teacher training program with Room to Breathe.

Sarah Fiorello, Office Manager

Sarah Fiorello, Office Manager

Sarah has been a part of the Total Balance Chiropractic family since 2013, but originally was introduced to the practice as a patient in 2011. Having suffered from debilitating headaches and migraines for almost a decade, she finally decided to try chiropractic care as a solution for her pain. After following the care plan recommended by her chiropractor, Sarah saw incredible results. Through chiropractic care, Sarah began to understand how all stressors – nutritional, physical and emotional – take a toll on the body. Since then, Sarah has been a lover and advocate of chiropractic care; with a background in administration, her transition to the staff of Total Balance was quite a natural progression.

“It’s such a special thing to watch patients go through the healing process,” Sarah says. “It’s so rewarding to be part of that process by supporting both the patients and the doctors from start to finish.”

When not at the office, Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Charlotte. On weekends she can often be found on a long trail run out in the wilderness, cooking, and working as a freelance writer.
