Learning and studying through health-related jobs and classes for many years, Fonta Sawyer is passionate about helping others find solutions to their health challenges.
Fonta is a holistic health coach who helps guide her clients to achieving balance in their life both mentally, physically, spiritually and nutritionally. At cornerstone chiropractic wellness, one of the tools Fonta utilizes is a German technology called Bemer. 74% of all blood circulates through the microcirculation and 95% of all health issues are directly related to problems in the capillary beds. However, because capillaries are so small it’s difficult to work on and repair damage to these tiny blood vessels but luckily that’s where Bemer shines. As a matter of fact, the Bemer is so advanced that NASA has contracted them to incorporate their technology into the astronaut suits!
Fonta also educates her clients on the proper approach to a achieving their weight loss goals and explains what makes up a nutritious meal. She also uses various essential oils and is a strong advocate for the type of chiropractic methods used by Dr. Twit.
