My name is Martha DeSante.  My life purpose is to help people reconnect with their bodies and learn to inhabit them with love and joy.  At my companies, Light Within Chiropractic and Back In Body, I help people heal from the wounds of denying themselves priority, pleasure and play.  I love to assist people as they reclaim their power as the CEO of their health and wellness using the tools of the awesome chiropractic adjustment, muscle work (hands-on, Graston/Gua Sha), personally prescribed yoga, Pilates, and postural exercises, breath and awareness.

  • Nutritional Support Session

    These sessions are intended to be used to provide additional nutritional support strategies to existing chiropractic patients. 
    • 60 Minute Initial Nutritional Support Session $100
      If you are looking for practical ways to determine what sort of diet and supplementation best support you and your goals, then nutritional support sessions are for you! The recommendations provided establish whole, nutrient dense foods as your base of support, then fill in with supplementation as indicated. My thought process involving nutrition is informed by Weston A. Price Foundation, the GAPS diet, low inflammatory and low allergenic potential food choices and Paleo/Primal – ish diets with an emphasis on lots of plant material and organic/pastured/humanely raised/locally sourced food as much as possible. Whether you are embarking on an elimination diet to identify potential food sensitivities or are looking to build a basic healthy nutritional foundation for you and your family, you will find the support that you seek. *For existing chiropractic patients at Light Within Chiropractic, PLLC dba Back In Body.
