I was battling with a debilitating foot injury for over a year. Three other doctors said I would need surgery which would likely prevent me from running or jumping, permanently. To say that Dr. Jen simply “cured” my foot, surgery-free, would be a gross understatement. She helped me feel self-fulfillment, impacted my professional growth, and improved my intimate life. Happiness, money, and sex? AND I can jump around like a maniac anytime? Clearly, the idea of “whole you” wellness is no joke--these doctors understand big picture health...through Pilates, Sensei Kara helped me create serious core-strength, and Dr. Jen and Dr. Jamie transformed the way I conceive of health & wellness. Seeing the big picture is so much better. My reality—empowered. My stays at Wholeyou Wellness have changed my life. Period.

I am someone who has been in chronic pain for as long as I can remember…back, neck, jaw, knees, wrists, thumbs, you name it. I was referred to Dr. Jen about 6 months ago from my massage therapist. I am still surprised at how much my pain has subsided and how much better I feel. This is actually the first winter that I have NOT had a wicked sinus infection! With a regimen of holistic supplements, regular bio-energetic adjustments and ionic cleansing de-tox, I feel like I haven't felt in 20 years (no exaggeration here)! I have tried so many other therapies for so many years (straight chiropractic, acupuncture, cranial sacral manipulation, NUCCA, physical therapy) and nothing worked, until I met Dr. Jen. Her philosophy is simple, based in science, and is non-invasive. If you are looking for something that TRULY works… Dr. Jen is your answer!!! Thanks Dr. Jen for helping me to feel human again!!

Hello Dr. Jen,
I just wanted to let you know that I have had an amazing experience after our first session.
Since I was young I felt I was unwanted, unheard and unloved.I was not going to make it another week in this world. I had one person that never gave up on me and she told me about you. I was open to help, but doubted anything would work. After our session I started remembering my past and saw things more clearly than I ever have been able to. You were able to go to the very core of when my life took a turn for the worse during my divorce 19 years ago. Getting divorced had crushed me on all levels. I had experienced a very traumatic childhood and when I married I had finally felt loved and had hope for my future for the very first time.
After our session I had complete clarity and understood my past of alcoholism, drug abuse, anger and attaching myself to people for self-worth was the only way I knew how to cope. I woke the next day after our session feeling optimistic and happy for the first time in my life. I have no words to express my profound gratitude. I feel like you have saved my life. I know you did!
Thank you seems so small compared to how I feel, but want to say it anyway. I can not believe that anyone could be at a more desparate place in their life then I was and with only one session it turned from desparation to happiness, hope and self-confidence. It has really been a miracle.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I was experiencing several health challenges including extreme fatigue and I was in excruciating pain all over my body and also had herniated discs in my neck. I had been going to doctors and chiropractors (for 13 years) but my symptoms still prevailed. I heard about Dr. Jen, so I decided to give her a try even though she was almost an hour away. Dr. Jen not only treated my pain but she really looked at everything I was dealing with as a whole. I was able to get rid of all my other doctors because I didn’t need them anymore. I now have energy and I am not in pain anymore!!! Wow! Dr. Jen brought me back to life. She has spent so much time with me & really listens to everything I have to say she is the most patient and knowledgeable chiropractor I have ever met. It is over a year later and I honestly do not know where I would be today without Dr. Jen.
For the last two years, I have had pain in my top right canine tooth. The pain is intermittent and sometimes affects the teeth on both sides of the tooth. The pain was they type you get from a tooth that is cold sensitive. I went to my dentist several times and they could not find anything wrong with my teeth. They recommended I see an ears, nose, and throat specialist. The ENT could find nothing wrong and recommended I see a neurologist. The neurologist thought it could be a nerve which runs from my brain and gave me medicine normally used for people who experience seizures. I was reluctant to take this medicine and went back to my dentist. He recommended I see an endodontist for hot and cold testing on my teeth. He recommended I get a root canal on my canine tooth. I went to another endodontist for a second opinion. He said I did not need a root canal and that I should wait for the pain to get worse before he attempts treatment. I went to yet a third dentist who did a 3-D x-ray of my mouth and could not find anything wrong. He recommended that I see Dr. Jen Furcht at Whole You Wellness & Pilates Studio. I started seeing Dr. Jen the end of December 2014. By mid-January 2015, the pain was gone. Dr. Jen is wonderful. I see her every 3 weeks and I feel great!
I ran the half marathon and felt good until mile 10 but finished - minus a toenail! My ITB hurt the next day but not nearly as bad as it has in the past and was fine by the afternoon. Dr. Jen, I truly think you are a miracle worker!!

"When I first came to Dr. Sarra I had horrible back pain in my upper back and had been suffering from acid reflux for over a year. I had tried every medication out there with little success. I am happy to say that since I began seeing Dr. Sarra I haven't had any acid reflux and have stopped all of my medication and no symptoms have returned. My back pain is almost gone. This was the best decision I have made for my health. She is Great!"
"I began seeing Dr. Jen in September of 2007. I had just lost my father in January after a long battle with cancer. Most of my anxiety, sadness and grief were held in my neck, the back of my head and shoulders. I had already been under the care of two other chiropractors with no results, both of whom claimed to be "holistic" practitioners. I was in constant pain and found it very difficult to function. Dr. Jen was very sympathetic, intuitive and accurate with her assessment. A lot happened over the next few months, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Gradually, I began to heal and within a few months was completely pain-free. What was and is of most importance to me, is the subconscious mental/emotional components associated with my physical pain. Dr. Jen is truly an excellent facilitator who can read my body with uncanny accuracy. She has taught me many techniques/exercises to use on my own to help maintain balance and remain centered. Dr. Jen truly practices holistic medicine, working from the inside on a cellular level through to the external physical body. She is a doctor, teacher and most of all a wonderful healer. Many thanks, Dr. Jen!!!"
I have been feeling so much better since our last appointment on Wednesday. I haven’t been exhausted and my head doesn’t feel all foggy. I’m actually feeling energized!
I can’t say enough how appreciative I am to you for what you do!

"I have always known there was an incredible and innate connection between the mind and the body. What I have learned and practiced in the last year has done nothing but solidify that belief.
Working with Dr. Jen in her Energy Chiropractic Practice has allowed my body to become more balanced and healthier. The Ionic Cleanse System has allowed me less pain and stiffness in all of my joints. Her commitment to the education and implementation of wellness into the community is a joy to be around. Finally, to have someone who gets what I'm talking about!
In addition I always had a fear of getting my "neck cracked." With the technique that Dr. Jen uses it is unnecessary for her to crack my bones but I still get great results with out the fear. Her techniques also instill a preventative approach to my health care which makes the most sense to me and allows me to be completely in touch with my body.
She also introduced me to the Isagenix cellular cleansing system. A cleanse at the cellular level, I have permanently lost 3 inches off my waist!
The third part of this testimonial is regarding the Pilates classes I have been taking for over a year. My body is in the best shape it's been in years! I am 60 years old but can fool most into thinking I am 50! Not bad I'll tell you! Anyone who has the desire to be in touch with their own mind and body should take a serious look at what is available at Whole You Chiropractic! I'm sure glad I found Dr. Jen!"
Angelic Reiki Testimonial:
"I have been regularly benefiting from chiropractic for years. I began by encouraging my friend Gail to see the value of chiropractic. I actually went with her to be her support before I ever had a treatment!
It was shortly after that visit, that I had my first treatment. I got up from the table and the word "peace" came to my lips. I had never before experienced that bodily peace. The sometimes weekly trips to a chiropractor were very helpful. I even benefited from a 94-year-old chiropractor in upstate Pennsylvania while on vacation. However, a pain in my neck caused me great concern. It lasted for six months. I didn't even allow my chiropractor to crack my neck. There was too much pain.
It was after much thinking and prayer that I asked my daughter if her chiropractor who practices a gentle chiropractic could recommend anyone in this area for me. She did. She recommended Dr. Jen. I called and actually talked directly with her. She was able to see me within a couple of days. Her technique was so gentle and effective that the severe pain in my neck was gone within a few visits! I was thrilled to say the least! The pain has not returned.
I was also impressed with her concern and willingness to work on special areas in my body which are hurting or not functioning correctly. She sometimes finds them before I am aware of them. I have recommended her to several people. Unfortunately, many people do not realize the value of a chiropractic adjustment. I have also been benefiting from an ion foot bath after my chiropractic treatments. I look forward to each appointment!"
"Due to Broken ankle 16 years ago, I walked unevenly favoring that side. It led to muscles tightening unevenly and eventually to hip and lower back pain. One treatment with Dr. Sarra drastically reduced the lower back pain and eliminated the hip pain while walking. My posture is more erect, my stride longer and my gait much more balanced. I am looking forward to complete freedom from pain and ease of movement."

"Dr Jen's philosophy is that she does not see any obstacles that can stop someone from reaching their maximum or optimum health. She is truly committed to her patients well being and always listens and offers guidance. I have experienced significant improvement since I began seeing Dr Jen and am so grateful that she is my chiropractor. : )"

I've had back pain for about 13 years and I came to a point in my life where everything I did caused more pain so I stopped exercising. Kara was able to get me back to exercising through Pilates. I now can do a proper abdominal curl and have found abdominal muscles I never knew I had even after rowing in college. I am also now able to build my upper body even though I was never able to do that my entire life. Kara is very knowledgeable instructor and makes sure you are doing the exercises correctly and that is sooooo important. She is very patient and is able to assist and adapt to whatever ailments I have going on with my body that day."
"I first started seeing Dr. Jen for Chiropractic and Wellness Care over a year ago. I had constant, horrible pain in my foot. My general practitioner diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis and told me my only options were to wear orthotics or get a cortisone shot. Personally, I wasn't thrilled with either of those options. One night during a Pilates session I asked my instructor if there were any exercises I could do to relieve some of the pain. She referred me to Dr. Jen (who happens to be her daughter). I was skeptical at first. I had never gone to a chiropractor before and was only aware of the myths that I had heard (bone cracking, once you start going you will need to go frequently or you'll be in pain, etc). Given the amount of discomfort I was having I felt I had nothing to lose but to try it. After my first visit I still had the pain but could feel a difference in the way I was standing and that my weight was being evenly distributed in my feet. With each session the pain would lessen. Within 6-8 months the pain had gone completely away.
I continue to see Jen once a month to maintain the proper alignment so that I don't revert back to the foot pain I had in the beginning. Once my foot problem was resolved I mentioned to Jen that now she needs to help me with my migraine headaches which were mainly hormonal. She told me about an amino acid supplement that helps to regulate the hormones produced so that they are producing at the level they are supposed to. Once again I was skeptical but with a 90 day money back guarantee I had nothing to lose. At month 4 I saw a 50% drop in the number of migraine headaches I would get each month. On top of the amino acid supplements Dr. Jen explained the importance of your body having the appropriate PH balance through eating specific foods and taking green barley supplements. Since I have adjusted my diet and started taking the supplements I am down to about 1 bad headache a month and I no longer feel like I am constantly hungry.
So I snack less and have even lost some weight in the process. Besides my foot and headache problems being corrected, my entire body feels better. I used to get achiness in my shoulders and tension in my neck and I get those issues less frequently now. I also now have an understanding on how everything in your body relates to each other and when there is a problem in one area another part of your body has to compensate for that. Not only am I feeling so much better but I am more productive at work and in my personal life now that I am not distracted by the pain. I would recommend Dr Jen's services to anyone looking to improve their health and quality of life."
"I started having migraine headaches about 15 years ago quite frequently. I found after being in a study, many medications and various other techniques the best for my problem was chiropractic care. After seeing an area chiropractor for 10 very time consuming years at least once or twice a week this was my only temporary relief. I found myself being roughly adjusted in my neck and back and just going back thinking that this was what I was going to need all the time. I was recommended to Dr. Jen by someone and my daughter has been seeing her for many health problems which are now disappearing. I drive a well worth 45 minutes each way every week for the last few months for her magic hands treatment. I feel much more relaxed and have not had many headaches and when I do they are easy to relieve. Her techniques are so gentle and relieving. I highly recommend anyone to see her."
"Having received a number of positive referrals for Dr. Jen, I set up an appointment and will never forget my first session. I walked in as a 50 year old man with a stiff back and sore knees and walked out 20 minutes later like someone had just sprayed my joints with WD 40. I could touch my toes (without bending my knees!) and walk comfortably with no knee discomfort. Dr. Jen said my back and neck were out of line as well as my knees (I had never heard that before---heck, I didn't even know knees could go out of line!).
More impressively, Dr, Jen was able to, over time, realign my body to the point where the muscles are now gaining memory on the right way to stay, in between visits....and she does this without those old fashioned neck and back cracks that so many of are used to over time. She gets the same result (alignment) without the uncomfortable back cracking that I had experienced and become accustomed to.
"I have never been athletic. In school I was chosen last for team sports in gym class. I developed a personal philosophy that there should be some people reserved in this world who don't sweat and I was one of them. When I turned 40 I realized I needed to start exercising before all the aches and pains took over my life. I had read all the articles that exercise was the best thing to have high quality life. I joined a gym and took some classes; yoga, weights, and body sculpt. Then I took Kara's Pilates classes, WOW I could do this! I have now been taking classes from Kara for more than 6 years.
Kara is always helpful and paces the class or training session to her students. She changes the exercises so you don't get bored. I love it that I have to focus on the class and what she is going to throw at us next that my worries for the day disappear. She also has a sense of humor. She does not take herself, exercising or you to seriously.
Kara's depth of knowledge is tremendous. In both classes and private training sessions she modifies routines or exercises to accommodate student's abilities or injuries. You still get a good work out but don't aggravate injuries.
Overall, Kara's Pilates training focuses on you, her student, and what works best for you. It still amazes me that she can show me a new exercise and I will not be able to do it. She will say "Don't worry we'll work on it" and a couple months later I will be able to do it. She knows how to get you to achieve more than you ever thought you could. It just takes patience and persistence."

"I have an ailment where my rib goes out of place. When this happens I can barely lift my head from the pillow without awful pain. Generally this pain stays with me for several days or as long as a week. Making the smallest of tasks (turning my head), a chore. However, Dr. Sarra identified my pain and provided several modalities to help me. She used ice and a tool that she calls a percussor along with a gentle adjustment. Almost immediately I was better! Dr. Sarra exemplifies great work chiropractors do and she further strengthens my belief in alternative health care."
