"Dr. Tremayne has saved my neck, and my DIGESTION! I have had chronic neck and back pain, and poor alignment for over 10 years now, but never considered the possibility that my digestion could be effected by my spinal alignment. I have a bad habit of not going to the doctor, even when I need to, so it took my old friend Ian Davis-Tremayne and I reconnecting on Facebook to get me interested in taking care of my physical issues. He spoke of his profession with deep love and excitement. This love for getting people well is what inspired me to look into a visit with him, and I am forever grateful that I did. During my first visit, Ian asked me a number of questions, some of which I would have never known related to upper cervical specific chiropractic. I told him I had terrible digestion issues, and slightly high blood pressure (which is really bizarre because Im young, I eat really well, exercise, and I am not overly stressed). I also mentioned I experience chronic neck and back pain. He asked if I had ever had any physical trauma such as a car accident, and I informed him that I was a passenger in an awful car accident at the age of 15. I also had surgery at the age of 18 or 19 to remove a tumor from my neck, so there was some built up scar tissue. Because of this, I had some x-rays taken on that first day. On my second visit, we reviewed my x-rays and discussed my care plan. While reviewing my x-rays, Dr. Tremayne showed me that I had a bone chip on one of my vertebrae from the car accident I was in at 15 years old. I never knew about the chip/fracture. Because of this I was over compensating with other parts of my neck to keep my head on straight and to avoid discomfort. I was growing extra bone in all the wrong places, and my spine was TOTALLY off center to boot! This meant my brainstem was not flowing properly, potentially effecting my digestion/blood pressure. In order to get my issues corrected, I have been going in to see Dr. Tremayne for a few months now. My posture has DRAMATICALLY improved. I no longer experience chronic pain. I have new tools and exercises to take care of my body. No joke, my blood pressure is back to normal!! (I was pre-hypertension) AND, for real, yall, my digestion is normal! (Possibly my favorite benefit of Upper Cervical Chiropractic!) Dr. Tremayne is gentle, compassionate, and highly skilled in what he does. Unlike other chiropractors, he only adjusts me when he sees I need to be adjusted. I truly appreciate that there is a chiropractor in Marin who is as spiritual and comforting as he is professional and qualified. I highly recommend Dr. Tremayne."

"At about 7 weeks old, I noticed that my daughter Ella was holding her head to one side in a drastic manner. In every picture her head would be tilted to the side. She also could not latch on to nurse very well on one side. She would get really fussy and she just seemed like she was in pain and favoring her neck in a certain way. It was very scary and broke my heart! I had been to see a chiropractor and cranial sacral therapist in the area and she referred me to Dr. Ian. She said that because Ellas problem was in the upper cervical area and that Dr. Ian was amazing with children, that it would be a good idea to see him. I am so glad I did! At first I was nervous to have my little babys neck adjusted. But Dr. Ian assured me that it is a really gentle adjustment and that because babys necks have a lot of cartilage, they heal quickly. He made the adjustment (at a house call!!Awesome!) and she didnt even react, just turned over and smiled. He was so sweet and so gentle, you could tell that he loved children. In just 2 adjustments Ella started to improve drastically. He gave me some stretching exercises to do with her as well. Her head started to straighten out, she latched on well and was an extremely happy baby. No more fussing for no reason and tons of smiles! My husband and I are so thankful for Dr. Ians help, she became a different child! Thank you Dr. Ian!"

"As an actor and a physical performance artist, my body is my canvas, my tool, and my primary means for expression. It is also my living. While in graduate school I had a fall during class that (while magnificent and hilarious) left me with moderate to severe back pain for three years. Within a few months of the injury I was under the care of a chiropractor whose care was impersonal, exorbitantly expensive, and that led to no pain relief. I would walk into his office with pain, and 10 minutes later I would walk out with pain but with a large chunk of my checking account gone. I gave up on chiropractic care and figured I would just have to tough it out myself. A couple of years later I was performing in a show and again fell and aggravated the injury. This was in the middle of a 6 week run of 5 shows a week. I had no understudy, and I needed to continue to be able to perform. I knew I needed help, but was unsure of where to turn to. But after my first appointment with Ian I knew I was in good hands. Ian is an extremely talented body worker, and is passionate about healing. And perhaps most importantly, he wants you to understand what is happening in your body and how he is working with you to help your body heal itself. The care he provides is total and comprehensive, and the results are amazing. Since seeing Ian the pain in my lower back has ceased and I have the tools to help keep myself from re-injury and to continue to heal. In a culture where health care is primarily based on treatment of symptoms, Ians approach to healing the body is revelatory and a welcome relief!"
