Read what people are saying about the services and staff at ARCTIC:

Can’t say enough good things about ARCTIC Wellness. Dr. Schreffler worked with me to get over pain that had been bothering me for months and limiting my physical activity. He spent lots of time each session, really listening to me and figuring out what was needed to get me healthy again. That included chiropractic adjustment, working on my soft tissue, dry needling, and adding new exercises to strengthen different parts of my body. I worked with personal trainer Jamie, who was great and introduced me to TRX. I now am doing TRX classes at ARCTIC with Maren and this is a great addition to my workout routine. The approach here is on total body health and wellness – and it works. The staff are all extremely professional and welcoming. – Abby

Since enrolling in one of ARCTIC’s programs, the benefits have been clear.  The multi-pronged approach – chiropractic care, nutrition, injury prevention and training – has made all the difference.  I wish this program had been created sooner! – Meaghan

This review is for Amanda Long and Dr Keith Schreffler. Both are trusted and essential members of my wellness team for managing my chronic lower back and hip pain and post-thrombotic syndrome. I am not an athlete (nor do I have ambitions of becoming one!) and their care is an excellent fit for my needs. Amanda has been my massage therapist for the past two years and she embodies patient-centered care. She is a compassionate listener and a knowledgeable masseuse who is constantly pushing herself to learn and grow for the benefit of her clients. Amanda works with me to understand how I use my body and uses that knowledge to inform her treatment. I feel seen as a person, in less pain, and in better spirits after working with Amanda.

Amanda introduced me to Dr. Keith Schreffler nearly a year ago for treating my hip pain, and it is to the benefit of patients that they are working together. He, too, practices what he preaches about patient-centered care. I really appreciate his holistic approach to treating my pain and his patient, steady, and reassuring manner. He’s not a “crack and crunch”, one size fits all type of chiropractor; his treatment for me focuses on mobilizing and strengthening. I especially appreciate that he listens to my treatment goals and keeps those at the forefront of my treatment plan.In terms of the logistics of working with them, they are both punctual, have easy scheduling tools that send ample reminders, and their office is easy to get to via metro. – Anna

Let me begin by saying Caroline is so much more than a coach, she is my awesome, running friend. Caroline trained me to run the Marine Corps marathon 14 months after I received the “Gift of Life.” That is not a simple task as I needed as much mental help as I did athletic to take on and complete such a challenge. She gave me confidence when I had none, not only in running but beginning to live again. For many years my life was doctors and hospitals and she brought me to the world of runners where 5ks, 10ks and marathons are just what you do. I joke with Caroline that she knows what to do, either slow down or speed up, before I do. She helped me complete the greatest, most amazing journey I could’ve hoped for in completing a marathon post-transplant. – Steve

For years I have gone to National Pain & Spine Centers and other chiropractors on a monthly basis for lower back injections due to severe pain and would get temporary relief. 3 visits with Dr Schreffler and I have no more pain. OMG I am so happy and can’t believe it. I am even able to get off the sofa and stand up straight which I had a hard time doing as well. I highly recommend Dr. Schreffler!- Carla

I worked with Lauren on the sports performance nutrition package. She is absolutely fantastic to work with and is incredibly knowledgeable. She worked with my specific dietary restrictions and taught me how to eat healthy, delicious food. The best thing was that she gave me the tools I needed to successfully navigate the holidays and all of the delicious but unhealthy food. I spent time with my family, who did the majority of the cooking, and using the principles Lauren taught me, I had no issue eating healthy while enjoying the time with my family. She helped me achieve my goal, and I will definitely seek her help in the future if I have any questions! I highly recommend Lauren for any of the nutrition services– Whitney

Just wanted to send over a quick thank you for taking care of my members. I’ve sent a few over and all have had positive experiences. It’s great to have a place I can refer with confidence that they’re getting proper treatment. I try to take a comprehensive approach to building these people’s bodies from the ground up and in my eyes, that means getting rid of restrictions, asymmetries, and imbalances before lots of load and stress…thanks again for providing a valuable service and being great at what you do. –Justin, Owner at Underground Athlete
