"I enjoy working with Dr. Teresa and our other staff to provide our clients with a well rounded approach to improving their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being."
Trish Hansel has been excited about and interested in holistic concepts since childhood. Her mother intuitively blended allopathic and holistic medicines. Growing up in a home with no healthcare insurance, healthcare needs were paid cash out of pocket on her father’s farmer/carpenter income. This laid the groundwork for Trish’s career in massage therapy.
Trish has great hands, and is exceptional at neck work, and relieving neck and shoulder pain, and headaches. She is also practiced at Craniosacral Therapy, Bone and Spirit, Visceral Manipulation, Viscera and Feelings, Muscles and Emotion, and Myofascia and Thought therapies.
"When not working, I enjoy spending time with my children, granddaughter, and our dog, Honey. I can be found taking long walks in the woods, (avoiding poison ivy!) I love to read, garden, sing; and yoga, when I'm feeling disciplined. A major life's passion for me has been embracing the majesty in the indigenous cultures and its teachings."

About Lori Gillespie
I joined the Cummings Chiropractic family in February 2011.
My interest in healing has been ongoing for many years. I, as a patient, personally have experienced several different healing modalities, including acupuncture, healing with light, hypnosis, chiropractic, Reiki, CranioSacral, 3-in-1 concepts, EMT, SRT, and massage. These modalities assisted me in healing not only my physical body but the emotional aspects of my life as well.
The desire to assist others toward ultimate health and happiness led me to consider a change in my career. The first modality I learned was Reiki. I achieved the master level in November of 1999. The second modality was massage. I earned my certification in massage from Baker College of Flint in December 2001. I taught several classes in the massage therapy program at both the Baker College of Flint and Owosso from 2005-2008. Since graduating from massage school, I have taken CranioSacral I, several classes on homeopathic and essential oils, an Energy Balancing Class, Ultra Silva Mind Training, and further Reiki classes.
