Happy New Year! Let’s Make 2019 Amazing Together

Happy New Year!

(A Message from Dr. Annie)

2018 has been an amazing year. 

First, we feel deep gratitude that we’ve been able to help transform so many lives this year.

It’s an awesome and humbling responsibility to be trusted with your healthcare and we’ve loved being your manual therapy solution.

Plus, it’s been wonderful to become friends!  At Head 2 Toe it’s amazing to watch patients become part of our extended family. 

We love getting to know you during your time with us, and although we are proud to graduate you from care and say good bye (for now), we miss you!  Know that even if you are not here with us in the Clinic, you are on our thoughts and in our hearts.

I want to celebrate the incredible Head 2 Toe team.  Over the last year, we have grown from two Doctors to four!  We feel so fortunate to have such a diverse and highly skilled team working together.  This year in addition to Dr. Bruce and myself, we added Dr. Lee Schuster and Dr. Jenny Righi.  Our team is collaborative and offers an impressive array of manual therapy treatments to help you heal.

Plus, exciting news…we are thrilled to announce that in January 2019 we will be adding massage therapy to the Clinic! This has been a long-standing request from patients and a personal mission for me.

My long time friend and colleague Said Yaaquobi has moved back from Amsterdam and will be bringing his amazing skills to the clinic. 

We are thankful to be part of such an amazing community in Edmonds. 

We feel like we are uniquely fortunate to be able to work with so many skilled local Doctors and Naturopaths.  The Edmonds Community is supportive and we love being a part of it.

As the year wraps up, we look forward to caring for your aches and pains in 2019.  We understand you have lots of places to go, and we feel privileged that you have chosen us to help you get there.

Thank you.

To a Happy and Healthy 2019,

Dr. Annie Armstrong
