Andrea Adamcakova-Dodd, PhD

My wife and my boss. Did I repeat myself?

Andrea is from Slovakia and came to the US, while working on her PhD back in 2000. I knew she was the one early on and she has proven to me over and over again that I was right

When wanting to change professions she was very reluctant at first, but as friends and clients kept telling her that I helped them and that I was very good at what I was doing she backed me 100%. With having two beautiful children backing me 100% was a lot of work on her part and I am very grateful for her support.

Darryl Dodd, LMT, Neural Reset Practitioner, BS, University of Iowa

With too many years sitting behind a desk I decided to make a change and I always wanted to get into the health field.

After my medical doctor was not able determine the cause of a numbness and tingling feeling that started in my right hand traveled up my arm, across my face and down to my left hand I went to a massage therapist. I did not think that he would be able to do anything about it, but I described it to him and he told me that it sounded like some of my muscles that could impinge on my brachial plexus might be tight. He pressed on pectoralis minor and it was excruciating as well as a few other muscles. He relaxed them and showed me some stretches and after one visit and without drugs, I have not had that issue again. After this experience I knew what I wanted to do.

I am very aggressive going after tight and tender muscles and I have been amazed with the healing power of touch! The state of Iowa only requires 16 hours of CEU's to renew the license and in a year I had over 200 hours. I dedicate time every week to learn, so that I can help as many people that I can.
