Sarah returned to our office after a long writing sabbatical. She’s recently finished her fifth novel, a young adult science fiction novel involving deadly plants and secret chambers. while she has several short stories in print, Sarah dreams of publishing novel length works and teaching writing courses to aspiring authors.
When she’s not at the clinic, or busy writing, Sarah enjoys reading, video games and hiking. Having recently purchased her first house and a pair of adorable kittens (Pumpkin and Pi), Sarah also spends a fair amount of time just enjoying the home she shares with her husband.
Sarah is excited to return to Folweiler Chiropractic, and looks forward to helping you reach all your health and wellness goals.
Deb Hamilton has been in practice since 1991 and brings a depth of experience to her massage that makes her a tremendous asset. She draws from a wide range of techniques in her massages, from several modalities in deep tissue massage to energy work like Reiki and BodyTalk. She receives high compliments from other chiropractors and clients.
Deb went to Virginia Tech and received a degree in communications. After working in advertising for a few years, she decided to make a change in careers. She was drawn to massage from a desire to help others and strengthen human connections and relationships.
That desire for human relationships carries over into her personal life. She gets strength and joy from her many friends. She is a passionate indoor gardener. Her Ballard home is filled with over 50 houseplants, including some that she has nurtured for decades. She has cuttings from her grandmother’s African violets and a terrarium plant that has grown to over six feet tall!
Seattle is a good fit for Deb. She finds Seattleites more grounded and balanced in their lives, allowing for more than just work.
Deb admits to two vices — tea and chocolate. She once dreamed of opening a community center/tea house based on these two loves, but finds that her true love is bodywork. Deb recently gave her 10,000th professional massage.
