MONROE, CT — Dr. Adaliz Gomez earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Bridgeport and worked at Judson Family Chiropractic in Newington for a year and a half before deciding to open his own practice.
“I wanted to create a more unique environment for my practice,” she said at the grand opening of The Healing Touch Family Chiropractic, 292 Elm St., on Saturday afternoon.
“I’m from New Jersey, so it was between New Jersey or here,” Gomez said of choosing a location for her practice.
She lives in Bridgeport, so Monroe was a better ride. “It reminds me of home,” Gomez said. “It’s very suburban. The people are great.
Family-owned chiropractic Healing Touch recently became a member of the Monroe Chamber of Commerce.
Its opening hours are Monday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Although The Healing Touch Family Chiropractic opened on August 1, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce held its grand opening on Saturday afternoon.
A table on the sidewalk had brochures and Halloween candy for the kids. Inside, pretzels and potato chips filled ghost-like plastic cups, and Italian subs were among the dishes offered to guests.
Raffle tickets were given out for memberships at CycleBar and Row House, both at 535 Monroe Turnpike, and The Edge Fitness Clubs, 41 Monroe Turnpike in Trumbull.
The event was attended by family and friends of Gomez, Monroe Community and Economic Development Manager William Holsworth, Chamber President Ray Giovanni and several other members.
State Representative Tony Scott, R-112e, congratulated Gomez on behalf of himself and first-team coach Ken Kellogg, who was unable to attend. Scott helped Gomez wield a giant pair of scissors to cut the ceremonial ribbon.
“Small businesses are so huge, not just for Monroe but for the state,” Scott said, “not just for the services, but for the jobs they create here. We love adding businesses and it’s going to be a great addition to this town.
Scott told Gomez to contact him and city officials with any issues she might have.
Giovanni said he spoke to Gomez about his practice one recent morning.
“It’s for kids and adults,” he said. “I didn’t know you could do chiropractic with young children, even infants. She is very passionate about her job. I told her about her skills and knowledge, and her caring for others who are struggling. »
“I think it’s amazing,” Gomez said of everyone who came out to support her grand opening. “It’s been a great turnout so far. I am blessed.”
The healing touch
According to his website, Gomez finds and treats the root cause of the problem for his patients to prevent the recurrence of symptoms.
“There is so much more to chiropractic care than just aches and pains, such as overall health, well-being, and quality of life,” says Gomez.
The site says:
Our goal is to educate you on what your body is fully capable of when it comes to correcting compromised areas of your spine. You’ll be informed throughout the process, from why you’re having back pain to how it affects your digestion, breathing, heartburn, sleep, concentration, or even why your child is wetting his or her bed.
We believe your body is a self-healing organ and smarter than any doctor. Once all interference from the nervous system is removed, your body will be able to function at its highest level. Although aches and pains may have brought you to our practice, we are not here simply to make you feel better (although that is a significant side effect), but to help you heal better.
Ask yourself this question: Are you here for temporary symptom relief or are you here to correct the problem?
