WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I feel extremely lucky to have found Kristy - New Element Chiropractic. I have been seeing Chiropractors for over 13 years due to migraines, and upper back/neck issues and she is by far the best, most attentive and effective I have ever had. Kristy has a gentle and meaningful approach while incorporating massage and movement through her adjustments. I have never experienced a Chiropractor that spends as much time and effort through each of the adjustments. If you're seeking a Chiropractor that cracks you and sends you out the door quickly, this is not your place. You can expect that Kristy will take the time to listen to your needs and adjust you extremely thoughtfully. I do not take recommending medical professionals lightly, but I have felt more than comfortable and happy to recommend Kristy to many of my family members and colleagues. She is top notch.
"I never knew I needed this. My wife scheduled an appointment with Kristy after I kept having headaches. And oh boy I needed my first adjustment. Such a big difference in motion and general ease in my neck. Kristy is highly knowledgable and tailors her chiro care to your needs and lifestyle. As I ramped up my exercise routine Kristy has been essential in keeping me going.
Dr. Kristy has been my chiropractor for almost 2 years. I started my care with Kristy while I was pregnant and she was so gentle and would offer suggestions for positions and just overall comfort while pregnant. I continued my chiropractic care with Kristy after I gave birth (emergency c section) and she also began cupping my c section scar which helped immensely. Most times I have my two children with me and she is so accommodating. She has a small children's table with toys in the corner and has even put on Netflix and let my kids have snacks and run around her office. Dr. Kristy also helped me with a persistent injury and encouraged me to seek out other medical professionals and get a second opinion after the first specialist was less than helpful. I would suggest her over and over!
"I've been coming to New Element for over a year! Dr. Kristy Johnson is HANDSDOWN the most caring and professional chiropractor in the Bay Area. She treated me during my pregnancy which relieved a lot of the tension, pains and aches that come with pregnancy. I tend to have tension/tightness on my neck leading to headaches but ever since I have been under Dr. Johnson's care I have noticed a tremendous improvement. I do not hesitate to recommend New Element to my friends and colleagues because I know that Dr. Johnson goes above and beyond for her patients."
I rely on my back for my job and my livelihood. As I have grown into my 50's, I have tapered off of doing the things that I love. My work load halved until I met Kristy. The techniques and instructions for my back health that she has used on me have brought back my livelihood and energy. My workload and energy have doubled and I am quite happy with the way I feel overall. I highly recommend trying Kristy and her practice to see if she can do the same for you!
Dr. Kristy has been the MVP in my journey to wellness! I try to live an active lifestyle with weightlifting , kickboxing , swimming or hiking a few times per week, but I also sit for HOURS in front of a computer like I'm sure most of us do in the Silicon Valley. Some might say I'm a bit of a workaholic, so with all that time spent sitting, I developed lower back issues. I'm also quite clumsy so I've racked up a few injuries from workouts or just sleeping wrong.
She takes the time to listen to my issues at the beginning of every appointment and has helped alleviate my pain with adjustments, massages, graston, and homeopathic tips. I couldn't ask for a better partner in helping me stay mobile and well!
Thank you Dr. Kristy!
