Welcome to AMMA!






Welcome to AMMA’s home on the web.  Please browse our site to learn more about how we can help you achieve your health-related goals. Feel free to call us or email us if you have questions or would like to set up an appointment for a complete consultation.

We are a small, locally owned, practitioner run medical office.  We see clients from 8am until 8pm Monday through Friday.  If you call during business hours and we don’t answer, we are probably giving undivided attention to our clients.  You can expect the same when you come for an appointment.

Please leave a message! We will follow up with you to assess your needs within 48 hours.

Be well!

Amber & Paul Vachon

Money Back Guarantee

Did you know that we offer a money back guarantee to all of our new clients?  We are so confident that you will like our work that we’re willing to say, “If you don’t like it, you won’t be charged.”  You’ll pay nothing.  It’s as simple as that!

So, give us a call. . . .  What do you have to lose?


Goodbye, Francois!

We are sorry that Francois is no longer practicing with us.  He has moved back to Raleigh.  We will miss him and his gifts, but we wish him the best!


1952 Video: “Posture Pals”

If you’re looking for a few laughs, here’s a classic Young America Films video on posture from 1952.  Not quite as useful as the 1953 Posture Video, but even more entertaining (thanks to Mystery Science Theater 3000 riffs). Look for a young Melissa Gilbert!



Fauja Singh: World’s Oldest Runner

At 101, Fauja Singh is an inspiration for us all.  Don’t let your age in years make you feel – and act – old.

Read his story at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/08/fauja-singh-worlds-oldest_n_2647436.html.  Be sure to scroll down for the BBC video!




Inclement Weather?

Winter Storm watches are going on today.  Some places are already experiencing sleet and most of the schools are closed for the day.  We are here, but please give us a call if you will not make it for your appointment today.   See our Snow Policy here. The same goes for all types of inclement weather.


The Pleasure Trap with Douglas Lisle

Here’s a great TED Talk that summarizes The Pleasure Trap. From the book description: “The author offers unique insights into the factors that make us susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses, and present ways to restore the biological processes designed by nature to keep us running at maximum efficiency and vitality.”


1953 Video on Posture

For your holiday amusement, here’s a classic Young America Films video on posture from 1953.  Rather cheesy, but there’s actually some good information in there.  Enjoy!



Thanks to the Mystery Giver

Imagine my surprise when UPS delivered a package with a smile today.

Apparently, an anonymous client sent me a Kindle (with all the extras) for Christmas.   Though I would love to personally thank this individual for such a generous gift, it seems that Secret Santa wishes to remain secret.  So, thank you.  I hope you read this post.  What a treat!  We’re looking forward to using our new toy during our Christmas travels.  I’ve already loaded more books than we’ll be able to read in a year!



Christmas Holidays

Our office will be closed for the Christmas holidays as of Tuesday, the 18th of December.  We will reopen on Wednesday, the 3rd of January.

We wish you a wonderful holiday celebration with your family and friends!
