Dr. Stekel’s mission: “I want to help people realize that the sickness they have doesn’t have to be permanent. That there is hope. I am amazed at the ability our body’s have to be able to heal. It’s exciting when I get to witness the transformation that occurs as people undergo care in my office. My patients have often come in with a specific pain, and after a short time find that other problems which they hadn’t focused on were getting better. It’s very rewarding when someone realizes the principle that we are made to heal, and that many times, all we need is to create the right environment within the body for that to happen.”
