Today a veritable cornucopia

  • The Three Ps

    Pasta, pizza, and peanut butter. We've all been there. For some of us, these three delicious, yet nutritionally limited, pantry items constituted our three main food groups for months, if not years of our 20s and 30s, possibly even our 40s. But there comes a time when the party's over and we need to

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Everyone in our 5-member family looks forward to appointments with Dr. Gailes. She is simply the best! She is a highly skilled and knowledgeable chiropractor who helps us feel better and who also teaches us different ways in which we can help ourselves and improve our own well-being. She is also one of the nicest people and we all think of her as a wonderful friend. We feel extremely fortunate to know her and have her in our Greenwich community."
    Jasna Dolgov
  • "Dr Gailes was thorough, patient and truly interested in solving for the root cause of my pain (desk ergonomics, sleeping pillow, lumbar support, etc). I’ve always been reluctant to go to a chiropractor- cracking and popping scared me! I was very pleasantly surprised at the approach- warm compress, electro stimulation and manual manipulation. Was a relaxing experience and I felt a difference! Am looking forward to returning for more relief! Thank you Dr Gailes!"
    Amy Vogt
  • "I'm commercial photographer and carry a lot of gear for the past 30 years. I met Dr. Gailes at a event and she convinced me I should try a treatment. I always had a my doubts about chiropractors, but she had a sweet manor and decided to give it a try. Wow, was I blown away how just one treatment gave me relief after years of abuse to my body. Very professional staff and office environment. I also have played sports and study martial arts for years. So you sports guys take notice, and let her do her magic!"
