Professors and administrators at the annual benefits fair held on the campus at Manhattanville College were a little less stressed when selecting insurance plans because Dr. Susan Friedman of the Foundation for Wellness Professionals and a massage therapist were on hand conducting Wellness Surveys and giving tension relieving massages.
Stephanie Carcano invited over 18 of her fellow professionals; Economics and Music History Professors, as well as a Graduate School administrators among others, in the Ballroom at Reid Castle, an historic castle with an illustrious past. Today, with its lovely chapel and interiors, it is a popular venue for weddings and other gatherings.
Common complaints revealed on the surveys were not surprising; headaches, back pain, tension and stress were all on the list. However, Dr. Friedman has the ability to treat other ailments not usually associated with chiropractic care.
Dr. Susan Friedman sees patients that have diabetic neuropathy, subluxation, adrenal gland problems, plantar fasciitis, and spinal fusion issues. Her practice uses state of the art techniques such as the Neurologic Relief Centers Technique and the DRX9000 tm can relieve herniated and degenerated discs.
The Foundation for Wellness Professionals is an association of volunteer professional healthcare and motivational and keynote speakers who perform Wellness Days, do spinal screenings and deliver educational workshops at no charge in their communities. Dr. Friedman has been a member of the FWP for about 20 years.
