Here's the deal! If you opt into their wellness program, you have to pay up front and if you do not experience any improvement, oh well, too bad, so sad. They've got your money and you are stuck making payments until your Care Credit loan is paid off! This is the situation I am in now. The personalized program they set me up on cost me $6,466!!!!! This was for 3 MONTHS of wellness, possibly six. PLUS, that DOES NOT include ASEA, which is a monthly MLM supplement that they say "works with the program" and you "need to be on." That's an additional $200/month. PLUS, there is the protein powder that cost $48-and-change per bag, monthly. PLUS, there are the Beyond Organic supplements and foods that you have to buy that are an additional cost.They sit you in a room and put you in, what they refer to as the "Hot Seat." Appropriately termed as I felt intimidated when presented the cost of the program, and although I was sick to my stomach when I saw the price, I signed the deal anyway. My bad. Kicking myself every month now when I make that payment.The wellness program included two visits per week: one for lipo laser which supposedly draws toxins out of your fat, a chiropractic adjustment, and a muscle testing allergy treatment. The second visit is an ionic foot soak, a chiropractic adjustment, and a muscle testing allergy treatment.The $6,466 fee includes a cellular healing diet plan, cookbook, and some supplements. After five months, my inhaler use increased from one inhaler per month to 1-1/2!! NOT GOOD ... especially when paying such an exorbitant fee to feel batter!! I followed the diet, did everything I was told to do and when I caught a cold, I was sick - in bed - for 16 days! Very unusual. Also, since Dr. Jim wanted me off all fruits due to their sugar content, I started getting severe muscle spasms in my shin bones and in my rib cage. Turned out I was potassium deficient. I believe that occurred as a result of removing bananas from my diet, because before this "wellness plan" I would drink a smoothie every morning that included a banana, almond butter, kale and coconut water. Bananas = potassium.The "next phase" of my wellness program was going to cost me just shy of $500 in more supplements. This is where I drew the line and decided to cut my losses. I could not see throwing any more money at a program that obviously was NOT working for me, so I opted out. When I told the office manager, Sonja, her entire demeanor changed. She went from being sweet as pecan pie to sticking her nose up in the air and saying, "Your choice" and walking away from me without even allowing me to finish explaining. At this point, it was completely obvious that if I was not going to keep throwing money at them, she was not interested in what I had to say. So sad, because I had hoped to continue seeing Dr. Jim for adjustments but that attitude changed my mind.I found another local chiropractor where I get acupuncture and adjustments. I started juicing again (something Dr. Jim is opposed to as he prefers blended drinks), added fruit back into my diet and in less than a week, I am down to 2-5 puffs on my inhaler DAILY!!! This is down from 12-15 puffs just to get through the night!!! I'm also sleeping through the night without coughing fits. HUGE IMPROVEMENT in a very short period of time! And it only cost me $45/session for acupuncture ... AS NEEDED! No monumental financial commitment, no pressure, no up-front fees, no contract!It makes me even sicker to say that when I added all the incidentals (ASEA, Protein Powder, Beyond Organic, etc) to the original plan price, in the five months that I went to Acworth Wellness Center, it cost me close to $9000. When you figure that out monthly, that comes out to $1800 PER MONTH!! That's more than twice what I pay for my mortgage!!!!Sad to say that Acworth Wellness was NOT GOOD for my health... physical or financial!!!! =(
I and my entire family have been treated at this office for the past 14 years! The service is incredible. I love how we are treated as a person and not just a number. I honestly feel like family. We've been treated for allergies, chiropractic, skin conditions and have gone through a complete body detoxification. Service is A+
We have been patients of the Acworth Wellness Center for so many years and we really can't say enough about him and his staff. Friendly, caring, skilled and knowledgeable is how I would describe them. Don't wait if your health is a concern to you. Get in to see them ASAP. Our family loves and trusts the Acworth Wellness Center.
I booked a surprise appointment for my lady. TLDR: It didn't go well.Her father was admitted to ICU and is in critical condition but I still was respectful enough to call and cancel the appointment while in parallel dealing with a very stressful family issue, I explained that he was in ICU and was asked to hold twice. The staff here had the audacity and disrespect to call and leave a voicemail for her saying that I hung up on then twice (which is totally true, this situation does not allow me to sit on hold and wait on rude staff, (I just wanted to allow you to free up the slot we obviously could not make), this call was from Latrice also stating that you needed her credit card to charge her a fee, and if not she would be banned from massage envy. This is very offensive and inappropriate considering the situation was explained. They are supposed to provide therapy to help people relax and de-stress, and have done the opposite by totally mishandling this situation and disrespected me and my lady in the process.My goal was to get her in this 90 minute session to relieve extreme tension, so that she could come for sessions regularly for maintenance. I will not be doing so at this location, and it is very unlikely we will be visiting massage envy at all in the future, depending on how this complaint is handled.I don't CARE if these folks want to be super insensitive and charge a fee for cancellation (but really 50% do you folks drink on the job?), but insulting me and my lady, blowing up both of our phones during an already stresful time - that's more than insensitive, that's a total lack of caring about the customer whatsoever.
Great Place! Much more helpful than the “big box stores”. Renee Really cares about you and your health! I send all my friends and family here because I trust they will give the best possible advice.
I worked in a day spa for 3 years as a massage therapist so I can't help but to judge every massage place I go to. I woke up Friday morning unable to walk upright and knew I had to do something quickly so I reluctantly booked an appointment at Massage Envy. Little did I know, I was about to have the massage of my life. It is amazing how the human touch is so healing and I am happy to say Todd was a perfect match. He has amazing hands and my tight muscles and sideways walk was just what he fixed. I chose an hour massage and wish I extended the time considering I didn't want to get off the table! I went for the deep tissue massage and while I am sensitive, he was thorough on every inch of my back, even stretching out my sciatica. I was impressed how soft his touch was yet he managed to work out every kink and knot! We went through some stretches and heat therapy tricks and I was on my way.The next morning my back felt like I had been through the war but I was upright and even went for a run, something I haven't done in almost a week. I can do without the car salesman speech at check out about joining their "club" but I was so too dazed so it didn't phase me. Todd is amazing and you have to go and experience him for yourself.
Great place to grab a massage - I've been able to get scheduled the same day. Fair prices and excellent therapists.
I trust Dr. Jim and his staff with my family and that says a LOT!!! The detox programs, weight loss program, allergy treatments, chiropractic adjustments, everything! I would never even think about looking for another wellness center.
