Upon taking his doctor of chiropractic degree, Hewitt had three options: He could open his own practice, work for someone else, or start a business under someone else's umbrella. He decided to hone his business skills and spent two-and-a-half years under the tutelage of Dr. Stephen Franson of Beverly, who was named All-State and All-American Chiropractor by his peers. The Hewitts see MVWC as much more than a busi- ness, though. It is a family. Kendra not only knows the name of every patient they treat, but she also knows when they joined MVWC and why. They are building reciprocal relationships with the wider medical com- munity, too. They are not anti-medical care. They are pro-lifestyle. Their hope is that in the future, more progressive primary-care physicians will refer patients to MVWC. That way people will remedy the root causes of their health problems instead of simply taking yet another prescription. "People do not want to treat the symptoms. They want lasting change," Kendra says. "That is exactly what we wanted to offer from day one." Today, the Hewitts are rewriting the definition of wellness, one patient at a time. The center is equipped for classes as well as treatments. Merrimack Valley Wellness Center 800 Turnpike St. #101 North Andover 978-655-4979 CO N TAC T
