John Tunstall introduced Suzanne Sawyer, practice manager, and Susan Cahoon, medical massage therapist, with the Family Wellness Center. Sawyer and Cahoon described the services the center offers. They include counseling mental and social issues for both individuals and families, treating addictions, weight management, treating pain disorders and treating sleep disorders. They accept walk-in clients, medical referrals and school referrals. For treating pain, they use closely controlled medication therapy, acupuncture and massage therapy. Their goal is to work with clients to solve problems.
