Testimonial

    "Excellent experience; accommodated me and my daughter-in-law from Germany who has not had chiropractic care since 2014. I am very appreciative that Dr. Harris could work us in. The tool is freezing, so my rating for this experience is TOP. Thank you!"

    Robert A.

    "I see both the therapeutic massage therapist, Mary, and Dr. Harris. Marry has changed the methods she uses frequently, always with good results. The only negative is about to go away. She is currently on the second floor, but they are moving to a single story building. Both Mary and Dr. Harris seem to be able to zero in on the points that hurt, and release the tenderness"

    John W.

    "Everyone is Always professional, kind, and patient. Check in is awesome. Dr Harris is great! Love the the new location. Would and have recommended this practice!"

    Angie P.

    "Everyone is Always professional, kind, and patient. Check in is awesome. Dr Harris is great! Love the the new location. Would and have recommended this practice!"

    Nicky S.

    "As an older runner, cyclist, and crossfitter, I originally came to Dr Harris and Mary with a myriad of issues. They worked together to get me up and running, and now I see them for maintenance. I highly recommend them both to anyone who asks. And I love their new facility!"

    Tracy M.

    "Love this place, couldn't ask for a more friendlier staff, pleasant atmosphere, enjoy going there. I always have great results from Dr. Harris, she rocks! I have recommended this place to several people :)"

    Jennifer K.

    "From the friendly and engaging receptionist to the expertise of Dr. Harris, chiropractic treatments are (almost) enjoyable with this team. Such a pleasure to have such a great resource/service when needed ... really... the best!!"

    Joyce M.

    "It all starts with awesome Vanessa who makes you feel like family and takes great care of you from the time you enter the office. Then from there is Dr. Harris, who is genuinely concerned with how you are feeling and listens to you and is VERY patient with you, no matter how many times you interrupt her, because you have something else you want to make sure you share about what is going on in and with your body. Dr, Harris is very fun (without losing focus on caring for you) and takes the time to know you as a person also."

    Beverly B.

    "I have been going to Dr. Harris for many years and have always had a great experience. Dr. Harris is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Vanessa is welcoming and organized. Love the new office!"

    Pamela P.

    "I have seen Dr. Harris and several physical therapists and therapeutic massage therapist over many years. They are always kind, professional and attentive to help you get well or out of chronic pain."

    Linda P.

    "I come in knotted up due to shoulder/neck and back issues, but I always leave feeling *excellent.* Dr. Harris is very knowledgeable, genuinely nice, and super attentive. Vanessa is so courteous, helpful, and efficient. New facility is a gem. Highly recommended!"

    Lisa S.

    "Dr. Harris and her staff are making the most of their new building with best in class exercise equipment, therapeutic solutions and a comfortable setting. Any patient should feel as if she is in excellent hands; Dr. Harris works with her practitioners to be certain each patient receives individualized care and successful outcomes. When you are in pain, you should expect nothing less."

    Pat H.

    "Always nice to find those in the business -of- healing, like Dr. Harris, who first emphasize the Healing, not just Business. She cares who you are and quickly hones in on the core issues--the actual sources of discomfort, and her skill at gently but firmly addressing them is impressive...I also appreciate having my questions answered so clearly--since I apparently paid no attention in Health class and know little of muscles/joints, and did nothing at home to help avoid or relieve pain. Dr. Harris is great at suggesting what's best. In addition, her homeopathic knowledge adds a dimension to all-around care. Finally, I enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere--I start feeling relieved the moment I enter, knowing that the smiles are genuine (thank you Vanessa, and Alicia)...and that I'm going to feel a heck of a lot better when I leave."

    Carol G

    "Wonderful experience. The receptionist was kind and warm and helped me fill out the paperwork quickly and efficiently. Then Dr. Harris was the best chiropractor I have ever been to. She listened and took the time to really understand where I was hurting and why. She then cracked me from neck to lower back and I feel wonderful. She even had me move around and asked if I was still in pain, I was so she continued working until she could resolve my immediate pain. Repeat visits will be necessary to completely fix the problem, but at least now I don't have a stabbing pain every time I bend. I didn't feel rushed or like I was wasting her time, she listened and cared! Great visit!"

    Amanda T.

    "Dr Harris is very knowledgeable, and able to get to the root of the problem quickly. I highly recommend this practice."

    Ronda L.

    "This was my first visit to a chiropractic, and I didn't know what to expect. I had two different issues and Dr. Harris was able to address and resolve them both more quickly than I could have imagined. She also showed me exercises for how to strengthen/stretch the problem areas to prevent recurrences. Dr. Harris has a very relaxed, caring demeanor and her competence and professionalism put you right at ease. The office staff is friendly, warm and helpful. I'd recommend this place to anyone."

    Laurie P.

    "Dr. Harris and her staff are always pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Excellent service Love the new offices!"

    Doug J.

    "After suffering all weekend with a stabbing pain between my shoulder blades, I called Harpers Ferry Chiropractic Monday morning around 9. I made an appointment for 11 the same day. Dr Harris worked on the muscles in my back, and made an adjustment to my spine. I experienced immediate relief. I was still sore for a couple of days, but it felt like the knife in my back had been removed. I thought I'd be laid up for a while, but, I'm back to work. My experience was better than I expected. I found Dr Harris to be knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. She seems like someone who would go out of her way to help. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

    Dave K.

    "Very professional, wonderful staff I enjoy the new facilities and the staff is wonderful. Dr Harris knows how to adjust me gently and Mike seems to find the right spots to keep this 70+ body going. Vanessa is always pleasant and can find the appointment that works great for my schedule."

    Jan L.

    "The way Chiropractic care should be.... I am not new to Chiropractic care but new to the area. I found Dr. Harris/Group and could not be more pleased. The center is beautiful and inviting. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Dr. Harris addressed the issues quickly and effectively. I am amazed at how fast I recover and am pain-free. My previous Chiropractic group have pressured me to buy special pillows, herbs, diets etc. There is no pressure here for anything. If I ask about something they tell me about it and that's it. She leaves it up to me to decide on a follow-up appointment. What a lovely way to care for your patients. I am grateful I found this group and enthusiastically refer my friends and family. (this practice is in-network for my health insurance, my out of pocket cost has been around $35 per visit)"

    Denise C.

    "Dr Harris’ knowledge of nutrition is phenomenal. I have referred many patients, family and friends and have found that when they follow her advice they receive the results they are looking for, particularly with weight loss, improved diabetes control and lower cholesterol. Couple this with her knowledge of the body from Chiropractic Medicine and she provides a holistic, functional approach to medicine that anyone could benefit from. I see her along with my immediate family and we are thankful to have this quality of healthcare so close to home."

    Kristina A. Maciunas, MD/Family Physician

If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
