Testimonials

Love from past clients…

Candace has helped me get to the root cause of symptoms I’ve experienced for up to 20 years in some cases. While conventional medicine never offered more than a band-aid for these symptoms, Candace worked to understand them and determine the kind of testing I could likely benefit from. From there, she was able to offer powerful insights based on my test results and a protocol that included supplements and lifestyle changes. After a few months, I started to see significant changes that I never thought were possible before seeing Candace. Working with her has been a game-changer for me and improved my quality of life significantly. I love working with Candace because she listens, and she’s truly invested in helping me get to the bottom of my health challenges.

Conventional medicine determined that “bad luck” was responsible for my recurring miscarriages, but thanks to Candace and the testing she recommended, I now have a clear understanding of the factors that were likely negatively impacting my ability to maintain a pregnancy. I have recommended Candace to several close friends and will continue to do so because I whole-heartedly believe in her ability to help people get to the root of their health problems. – Amy Scholtes

 

 

Prior to working with Candace, I was experiencing pain in my neck. Since working with her, I no longer have this crick. The thing I liked best about working with Candace is that she helped me understand the root cause of my pain. I have already recommended several people to her for Thai body work because of how much it helped me.     -Nathanael Wills

 

Since working with Candace, I have a lot more energy than I used to. We figured out several reasons why my gut and hormones were out of balance through testing and supplements. Some of my favorite things about working with Candace are her honesty, kindness, and thoroughness in her job. With her help, I have been given more opportunities to better myself and my health. I have also been able to become more aware of my body and taking charge of my health. I would definitely recommend Candace because she is a joy to work with and has done a lot for me and my wellness. She always does what she thinks is necessary, rather than just prescribing medicines to treat symptoms. She is a great listener and I have really enjoyed working with her. -Ashley Robinson 

 

Before working with Candace, I was a little hesitant about if I would get value out of my meeting with her. Growing up my dad was a nutritionist, so I had high expectations for our time together. After working with Candace, I achieved great improvements in my health. After doing some lab testing and figuring out the root of my symptoms I noticed an increase in my energy as well as a reduction in my perimenopausal symptoms. When Candace does lab testing, she works alongside a doctor who helps interpret the results. Having two eyes on my case was really beneficial in getting to the bottom of things. I have also found her expertise in safety and her protocol of supplements to be really comforting and beneficial. My favorite thing about working with Candace is that she provides a lot of flexibility in treatment, which helped me to find a treatment that fit me best. She is also very positive and supportive, which makes for a pleasant experience when working with her. Candace really pulls out all the stops and stays up to date on her research, which made me feel like I had a whole team of people working to improve my health. I recommend her to those who are open to a variety of modalities of healing.               -April Ambrose

 

Linda IrvinCandace has been a tremendously helpful health coach and guide. She is attentive and interested.  She did diagnostic testing to discern the causes of my fatigue and provided creative solutions and supplements.  Candace is affordable and passionate about what she does.  In another life she would be an over priced physician or nutritionist and who knows maybe some day she still will be.  I recommend her highly for nutrition and all purpose health advice.  She is really smart.   -Linda Hoff Irvin, Evanston

 

I’ve had 2 sessions now with Candace and they have been amazing. She is incredibly skilled, and her approach is gentle and sensitive. She really zones in quickly on the spots that need the most healing while treating the entire body at the same time. I used to get occasional Swedish massages, and this is very different. It goes much deeper and is more holistic and integrated. I will never go back to ‘regular’ massage again!  – Judy, Evanston

Candace gave me a Thai massage about a year ago, and I still can remember how great it was! It was different than any other massage I had gotten before – kept all my clothes on. She was very responsive and wanted to know exactly which spots were holding tension. I can still recall that she found tender areas that I didn’t know were there and she helped ease and release tension in those spots. Can’t wait to book my next massage with Candace!  – Martha Blackburn, St. Louis

 

Before working with Candace, I was dealing with pretty severe right hip pain. I had previously visited different chiropractors and physical therapists but was unable to find relief from my pain. Candace’s vast knowledge of trigger points has helped me on many occasions of working with her. I was able to find quick relief, which was much different than experiences I had elsewhere. She has a broad range of knowledge, is compassionate, and interesting. I highly recommend working with Candace. -Cici Davidson

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 3.56.37 PMBecause a new job was causing me added stress, I was having a lot of neck and shoulder stiffness and pain.  Candace’s knowledgeable and thorough treatment of the muscle areas that were contributing to the problem was exactly what I needed and alleviated my symptoms immediately.  I can not express how much of a difference this has made to my physical well-being and my outlook on life after the pain subsided.  Candace is very attuned to each of her clients and adjusts the level of therapy she’s administering based on the feedback she receives from the clients.  She takes her time and does a complete job every time with utmost patience for the whole process.  At the end of every session I’ve received from Candace, I feel calm, totally relaxed, limber, and revitalized.  -Jenni Dean, Lubbock

 

As a physical therapist, I appreciate talking with Candace about muscle pain and the benefits of bodywork; but even more so IScreen Shot 2016-03-01 at 3.58.43 PM appreciate receiving one of Candace’s bodywork sessions.  Candace is professional, relational, peaceful, and skillful.  She finds the aches I didn’t even know were there.  At the end of a session with her, I feel like I’ve been well cared for physically and emotionally.  -Kristin Ross, Evanston

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.13.12 PMCandace’s Thai messages are amazing!  I have had her massages both as a pregnant woman with a sore back and as a new mom with tired arms and back from nursing, and both times she was able to identify the point of the pain and work out the knots.  Candace is a calming presence and she creates an atmosphere that truly helps me relax.   -Mallary Wiley, Lexington

Candace gives the best Thai massages, and I’ve been to Thailand and had actual Thai Massages there! I always feel amazing afterwards, all my pain having left me and feeling entirely relaxed. I highly recommend anyone in the area to visit her. She skillfully addresses the painful area(s) and resolves my pain every time. -Rachel Dvorak, Danville

 

 

As a mother of children with gut issues, I am grateful for Candace’s wealth of knowledge in nutrition.  Many times she has given me good insights, recipes, and encouragement.  I know I can trust Candace’s advice. – Kristin Ross, Evanston

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.07.04 PMAs a Registered Nurse I am aware of the lack of focus of nutrition in the medical world and am interested in the healing that good food brings. Candace introduced me to Weston A. Price’s principles of nutrition. Food can be a sensitive issue but Candace shares her advice and knowledge in a helpful,gentle way. I felt empowered to experiment with changes at my own pace and ultimately had confidence that I found the right diet for during pregnancy, birth, and now breast feeding. – Kate Bierma Marshak, Evanston
