Stern Wellness Center Celebrates 15 Years of Supporting Self-Healing: The Back Whisperer

Dr. Lawrence Stern

Dr. Lawrence Stern had operated a traditional chiropractic practice for more than a decade when he decided to expand his focus, attending not only to his patients’ physical symptoms but also to their emotional and spiritual well-being. “I understood that taking care of the whole person was paramount to helping people break through barriers to self-healing,” he says. “So fifteen years ago, I founded Stern Wellness Center to do just that.”

He built a team of experienced specialists, including a licensed massage therapist, an integrative nutritionist and a reiki master, to support patients in their journeys to healing. “The environment provides a whole-person approach to wellness,” he says. “It’s a collaborative system of care that promotes life-changing results.” Stern also expanded his own repertoire, earning advanced certification in network spinal analysis, a gentle, intuitive, holistic approach to healing the spine and nervous system.

The goal at Stern Wellness is to unlock the body’s innate ability to heal, he says. “Often, the root cause of pain or unexplainable symptoms stem from disorders of the body’s master communication engine, the nervous system. When there is interference, the body loses its ability to heal. We restore it through the specialties of wellness chiropractic and network spinal analysis, massage therapy, integrative nutrition, reiki healing and transformational coaching.”
