Is Empower Right For You?


By Dr. Lauren Dyer

Just over 3 years ago, we opened our doors not knowing what to expect.

All we knew was that we wanted to practice in a way that put our patients first—with integrity, compassion, and exceptional service being the intentions behind every decision we make. We wanted our space to foster connection, community, and growth for each person that walked through our doors.

Little did we know that over the next few years our care would be so well-received that it has allowed us to serve hundreds of people across Maine from neighboring towns to hours away—even out-of-state. As we reflected on how this came to be, a few key themes emerged for what set us apart and why patients continue to work with us. However, we understand that we are not for everyone. We have our own approaches, specialties, and philosophies that you may or may not connect with. If so, wonderful. We look forward to meeting you. If not, that’s okay. We hope you find the care you’re seeking.

Whether you are interested in Chiropractic or Acupuncture to elevate your well-being, we want you to have this introduction so you can confidently decide if we are the right fit for you.

Thank you in advance for considering our practice.

For Chiropractic this can include stretches and strengthening exercises; for Acupuncture this can include Lifestyle and/or Mindset Exercises, Eastern Dietary Therapy, and Chinese Herbal Medicine.

  5. You are looking for more than just spinal manipulations from your Chiropractor. You value an approach that looks at the bigger picture beyond the joints.
