What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
In February, 2007, I had suffered a sudden onset of lower back and hip pain comparable to a railroad spike hammered into my hip.  I could hardly walk or get into a car.  When I stepped out of bed, my right leg collapsed beneath me.  I was afraid to lay down fearing I would never get up.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
I saw a Chiropractor here in Michigan for 4 visits within one week, with very little improvement.  I then came to visit family in Albuquerque, when I saw Melissa Hernandez for Trigger Point Therapy.  She pressed on specific points and had me stretch.  We did another session two days later.  Improvement was noticeable as we stretched and she did her magic.  The restriction that was so noticeable in my hip improved significantly.  I saw her for my third and final treatment and was entirely pain-free.  She instructed me on certain stretching exercises as part of my recovery.  She also discussed how my sleeping and sitting positions were perpetuating my problem.  I constantly have to stay aware of my sleeping and sitting positions, as I know now that it was involved in my hip and low back pain.  I never want to feel that pain again.

Melissa Hernandez is a master of her craft.  She is a healer.  Her touch is a blessing to all who encounter her, because her sole purpose is to eliminate the pain that many people believe they have to live with.  The underlying cause of Myofascial pain just makes Melissa more intrigued and determined to correct it.  I admire her ability, her knowledge, and her intense desire to benefit others.  I believe she will go far with her knowledge of this Myofascial and trigger point therapy and I can never thank her enough for helping me in my hour of need.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
I have had terrible rosacea for over twelve years.  Melissa’s treatments have changed the course of my rosacea.  My face stayed at a level of redness that required a lot of cover up, foundation, and powder just to give me the appearance of regular skin.  Without extensive makeup, I looked like a victim of a bad sunburn at all times.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
As I previously indicated, Full Circle Wellness Center’s treatments have changed the course of my rosacea.  My redness has decreased dramatically as a result of the photo rejuvenation.  My spider veins have decreased dramatically as well, as the results of the spider vein removal treatments.  I am very satisfied with my complexion and I only need to use a little bit of powder to even out my complexion.  It’s a miracle and everything I ever hoped for.

Full Circle Wellness Center is a haven of information and wonderful products that are real problem solvers.  The staff can quickly pinpoint a solution and move you in the direction of wellness.  The massages at Full Circle Wellness Center “ROCK”, and have become a staple in my life.  Full Circle Wellness Center has been a great find for our whole family.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
My skin was full of acne and was easily irritated by acne products.  I had acne on my forehead and my chinline.  I also started to get breakouts on my jaw line and it became more severe over time.  I had blackheads all over my nose.  My acne wasn’t just small little pimples.  They were inflamed and very painful.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
After the first treatment, I saw amazing results.  I also bought the GM Collin PureAcne line of products and they helped tremendously!  After four treatments and using the GM Collin skin care line, my skin is so soft and acne-free!  My skin is now less irritated and I barely have breakouts.  I am so happy with the results!

Melissa and her staff are amazing.  You guys are miracle workers.  Thank you so much!  You saved my life.  I am so happy my acne is gone after three years of struggling with horrible skin, I can finally look in the mirror and be happy with how I look.  Thank you so much Full Circle Wellness Center!

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
When I was referred to Melissa in September 2007, I had continuous pain in my lower neck and right shoulder.  I was taking pain medication and muscle relaxants daily.  I had a restricted range of motion that was so bad I couldn’t look down or to the right.  I could not exercise and had frequent headaches.  Needless to say, I was in poor physical condition.  Old cervical injuries were getting worse with age, as I approached 50.  I had tried several very good chiropractors and doctors over the previous 7 years, that helped for a while, but were not able to do much more for me.  It seemed my health was on a downward spiral.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
Just 6 months later, and after regular treatments and advice from Melissa, I am off all pain medications, my range of motion is vastly improved, I no longer have frequent headaches, and I am able to exercise every day.  Melissa just knew what to do for me.  With each treatment, I could feel my old athletic body come back.  With Melissa’s advice, I learned what kind of exercises to start off with and build on.  Melissa’s knowledge of how muscular anatomy effects posture is very impressive and right on target.  With each visit, she was able to read my problem areas and directly address them almost immediately.  My old injuries are still there, but I am in a much better position to maintain my health and fitness today, thanks to Melissa and her team at Full Circle Wellness. 

Sometimes we are faced with several health challenges at once that cannot be solved with just a Doctor’s visit or medications. Melissa and her team are committed to working along side the patient to help them find the path to natural healing. I am extremely grateful to Melissa for taking this kind of approach with me. It was just what I needed.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
My shoulders and my neck were unbearably stiff.  It hurt to move my right arm and turn my head.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
The trigger point therapy was great.  After about two sessions, I got my mobility back.   With Melissa’s suggestions, I managed to make a few changes to my sleeping routine, this also helped.  Besides trigger point therapy, Melissa is great at helping me understand how my body and my muscles work.  It made me more aware of how I use my body.  It also made me aware of the bad habits I can fall into while sitting, standing and sleeping.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
Due to hormonal changes, my face started to break out with many red bumps around my chin and started to spread up my cheek bones.  I had so many blackheads that were deep in my pores and wouldn’t even come near the surface.  The bumps left many scars and then the bumps would reappear.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
After a few weeks of dedicating myself to treatments and using a new skin care line(from Full Circle), I have zero red pumps, all of those deep blackheads have now disappeared, and the scarring is completely gone. It was a devastating experience to have a condition like this at the age of 29.  Make-up would not cover it and it didn’t’ help that I was very active in sports.  I am still active and I can look in the mirror and smile again, and see such a clear complexion.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
Overall, I felt well.  I had trouble with sciatica on the left side of my body.  I had pain affecting the entire left side of my body, all the way from my shoulder and down my whole leg.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
The trigger point therapy eliminated the pain in my left shoulder.  It greatly improved my sciatica to the point where I rarely have a flare up. Melissa is knowledgable, perhaps because her father is a doctor.  She should have been a doctor too…lucky for us she is not.  We reap the benefits of her knowledge of the human body and her expertise in several types of manual therapy.

What was your condition before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
I had migraines at least five to seven times a month.  They would last for days at a time and would paralyze my body.  Migraines were taking over my life, and I could not take care of my daughter or go to work.
How has your condition improved as a result of coming to Full Circle Wellness Center?
Thanks to Melissa’s help, I don’t have migraines much any more.  I no longer have them on a monthly basis.  If I do get a migraine, they are not as severe, and my last a day, not an entire week. Melissa has taught me some great stretches and breathing techniques that are very helpful when I start to get stressed out.  These stretches and breathing techniques have helped me to relax and prevent a migraine.  Migraines used to take over my life, before coming to Full Circle Wellness Center and receiving Melissa’s help.
