Casey is an amazing healer in a surprising package. He fixed my back when I threw it out and gave me tools to reset my body and get stronger. He is such an awesome person to have on your wellness team. The office personnel are professional and awesome, and they were really helpful at managing the insurance side of things. Thanks!

Sitting here with so much relief that I feel compelled to come here to sing Innergate’s praises. I’ve been a patient there for over 5 years and have worked with different providers from Casey to Elizabeth. I’m so chuffed at how better I feel that I am fully taking advantage of the whole team and have scheduled to work with the naturopath on staff. I started going for horrible period symptoms but have been seen for an assortment of issues such as TMJ, migraines/headaches and sleep problems. Casey helped me figure out a three week tension headache that was seriously ruining the quality of my life. Elizabeth was able to help me sleep through the night and jump started my two year cardio streak. She’s also a wealth of knowledge when it comes to food as medicine. I’m so thankful for these wonderful practitioners. They take my insurance and I look forward to going in every time. Highly recommend!

My first two visits have been absolutely perfect. Acupuncture really helped my shoulder and arm as it was in very bad form. Can't recommend this place enough.

Renee and Brad have been treating my sciatic and neck pain for a few weeks and I can already feel an improvement in pain levels and ability to work. Not only is the clinic close to my house, but parking is a breeze and the place is always nice and clean. Thanks Inner Gate! -N

Staff are calm collective yet outgoing and evaluate clients efficiently. Treatments were designed wonderfully and much more intended was resolved.

Five Stars for acupuncturist Elizabeth Bourgeois. Liz knows more about the workings of the human body than most of the medical doctors I have seen and she has an uncanny ability to ask questions, test a few points, and hone in on the exact cause of whatever happens to be paining my 50-year-old body at the time. The day before my first visit with Liz I'd been roller skating and did an accidental and involuntary split--kind of like James Brown, except I didn't GET UP! Anyway, my primary care provider was not very helpful told me I had a pulled muscle and sent me limping home. Liz, within moments of meeting me, identified exactly which muscle was injured and where. She knew exactly where to put the needles for immediate pain relief, and it's no exaggeration to say that I limped in and walked out. I continue to see Liz regularly to treat some chronic issues and the inevitable new pain of the month. The office staff at IGH&W are all super friendly and I 10/10 would recommend them. Especially Liz for acupuncture.

I originally came to the Halsey clinic to see Dr. Heather Krebsbach who has helped me manage multiple health issues. She is AMAZING and deserves every “Best Doctor” award she receives! The front desk staff are great—always helpful and pleasant. The primary reason I’m leaving this review however is to recognize Renee Fields. I started getting medicinal massages from her about a year ago to help ease my chronic pain from both a lower back injury and almost daily battles with headaches. I’ve had many different massage therapists over the years and I can easily say that Renee is THE BEST! On top of being a great LMT, she is also an amazing person! Very intuitive, compassionate and intelligent. I enjoy our conversations as much as the relief I get from our appointments. She offers massage packages that help make getting treatments more affordable! All in all, my experiences at Inner Gate have been great!
I have never had a more thorough, thoughtful, clear medical appointment in my life. Dr. Krebsbach was present and focused for the entire appointment and sent a detailed after visit summary.

Dr. Jerrod Puckett obtained a Masters of Science in Sports Medicine in addition to his Doctorate in Chiropractic, which required hundreds of additional hours treating athletes, on and off the field.

How We Treat You

Evaluation of injuries and orthopedic disorders to find the cause of pain and dysfunction.

Based on these findings, treatment plans are then devised, which include acupuncture, myofascial release (a type of clinical deep tissue massage), and corrective exercises.

Postural assessment to understand the global imbalances that can lead to, and/or prevent proper healing of, orthopedic disorders and sports injuries.
