18 months ago I fell and hit my head, since then I have struggled with multiple symptoms including nausea and dizziness. I have seen multiple professionals, but no one was able to correct these symptoms. Then a month ago, I woke up with severe vertigo and nausea that wouldn’t go away. My Daughter recommended Simpson Family Wellness in Syracuse. That is were I met Stephanie, who is an acupuncturist there. Needless to say, having vertigo was very scary and frustrating, and the fact that it was going on for weeks began to worry me. Stephanie was very comforting and caring…she reassured me that it would all be ok, and that she would be able to help ease my discomfort and get to the root of my vertigo. She spent time investigating the best course of treatment for me and after three visits my vertigo and nausea were gone! I wish I had discovered her week one of my vertigo! 😊I have seen a few acupuncturists over the years for various other reasons….and Stephanie is the BEST I’ve ever had! I literally drive and hour and a half one way to get to her…she is so worth it!

Stephanie Nguyen is a fabulous healer. I have been receiving acupuncture treatments for stress, hot flashes, and back pain. The acupuncture treatments have been so helpful. My hot flashes are almost gone and my pain is greatly relieved. Steph is very professional and relaxing. The needles do not hurt at all. Steph has provided me with an overall plan complete with Chinese herbs to assist with reducing menopausal symptoms. I totally recommend acupuncture to anyone. Steph Nguyen will take the time to customize a treatment plan for you.

Laura P.

I highly recommend Stephanie. After over 4 months of constant pain, two hospital visits, x-rays, 3 CT’s, and an MRI, I was told I just have to live on pain meds the rest of my life. I knew that was not for me! I made an appointment with Stephanie. I have had 3 appointments and I am so thankful to say that I am off all pain meds and am pain free!

Joan R.

Steph is an outstanding practitioner— very thoughtful and caring, but more importantly, she gets incredible results! I highly recommend booking with her.

Bryan I.

Stephanie is a fantastic practitioner and healthcare provider. Always attentive to the patients needs, and creates a great healing space. I highly recommend.

Dr. Simpson was amazing with our little one. She provided us with so much information and confidence with our baby who was very fussy. We saw her when our daughter was 5 weeks and we regret not seeing her sooner. She made my husband and I feel like we could get through the sleepless nights and exhausting days. In the end, we have a much happier baby and we couldn’t be more thankful!

Mikaela J.

Professionally speaking Dr Anna is amazing. I trust her 100% and have complete confidence in her knowledge and skills. Her great sense of humor is an added benefit.
Referring or recommending that expectant moms go to her for routine care, breech or other position malpresentation is such a great comfort to know she will give it her all to help that mom to be.
Personally speaking she opened a door to a family member that was difficult to open. Just by Dr Anna being patient and willing to listen, it broke down a wall that needed to be broken down as a result of physical pain and frustration. The results currently are amazing. Even though not directly performing care for my loved one at this time, her staff in her office are providing a service that has been incredible to observe. I am extremely grateful to Dr Anna and to the other providers in her office. An amazing team for sure.

Deb A.

Simply put, Dr. Anna is fantastic! She’s incredibly knowledgeable (I love that she loves her continuing ed!), very down to Earth, and super easy to talk with, which is especially helpful and important to me as a nervous and anxious new mom. I’m especially appreciative of her because she’s a mom to two young children herself. While I absolutely trust her chiropractic care of my son (she’s very good with him!), I am so thankful of the extra support and encouragement she’s shown me when she saw me struggle. She chose not to ignore it, but instead, reached out, which isn’t a trait I often see in doctors. Many can be touch me nots, and act almost God like, but she’s real, approachable, and is truly compassionate about her chosen field. On an unrelated note, she’s from Canada, like me, so that also contributes to her level of awesomeness!

I’d like to also recognize Lee, the office manager, as she is equally as amazing! She is a mom as well and has been so accommodating in helping me navigate this crazy journey I’m on. She’s been incredibly patient, kind, understanding, and helpful in trying to do what’s best for my baby, but also me. She’s always made time for me and my concerns and has never made me feel rushed or acted as if I’m a bother. Like Dr. Anna, her passion for helping others shines through and I very much appreciate them both!

I need to thank my doula/lactation consultant, the incomparable, Jen Deshaies, for referring me to Simpson Family Wellness Chiropractic. While pregnant, a friend encouraged me to attend a class Jen held about breastfeeding at Dr. Anna’s practice, which was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Jen, I’ve heard both Dr. Anna and Lee sing your praises numerous times too!

Thank you, ladies, for all of the love and support you’ve shown both me and Charlie!

Samantha O.

My daughter and I absolutely love it here and Dr. Anna does an amazing job. Not the 5 minute “pop and go”.

Paula P.

Due to Dr. Anna’s nutritional counseling and easy to implement dietary changes, I have lowered my triglycerides from high to normal, and raised my vitamin D levels from almost non-existent to normal. Thanks Dr. Anna!

Chad W.

Dr. Anna did bodywork on my infant twins following their tongue and lip tie revisions. She helped to release tension and correct their latches, which helped my breastfeeding experience immensely. She is very patient and so good with children, not to mention extremely skilled in what she does. Highly recommend!

Mary B.

Dr Anna is absolutely the best!!! I had been to my family Dr, and several specialists. I had every test known to man done. Blood work many times, even surgery and still no answers for my pain. The Drs pushed one pill after another and kept telling me I needed pain management. I wasn’t buying it. Dr Anna spent many hours researching all my tests and lab work, and it didn’t take her long to see what all of the medical professionals never picked up on. Thank you Dr Anna for giving me my life back. I respect and admire you as a healer and a person. I’m eternally grateful for your help.

Susan A.

I have been to other chiropractors and have never felt so listened to and taken care of! Dr anna really takes the time to make sure you are getting the best possible care! And there’s lots of toys for the kids too! I am so blessed to have found this office

Cassie B.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU Dr. Simpson! So I went in for a routine adjustment today and mentioned to Doctor Simpson that I have had trouble engaging my core since having my second C-section. She confirmed I have diastasis recti and my abs are currently not speaking to each other ha ha. Good news? She can help! We started with some basic core exercises and then she taped me with her sweet new skills she learned this weekend. My shoulders are also feeling amazing as it is in the correct position thanks to more tape! She’s a miracle worker!

Lindsay S.

Dr. Anna-Marie Simpson used KT tape for my knee before a 5k this weekend and it was likely the only reason I was able to complete it! Without her help, my knee would likely have given out. She’s also helped me treat a pulled back and general kept me in good working order. Plus, she’s a blast to work with! Thanks Dr. Anna!

Sara F.

My infant son was referred to Dr. Anna by our amazing IBCLC (lactation consultant) for bodywork after his lip and tongue tie revisions almost a year ago, now. There are few providers in the area experienced and knowledgeable in the chiropractic and CST work needed for before and after tie revisions – Dr. Anna is definitely one of them.


Dr. Anna is very gentle with children and has been accommodating of all of my sons needs. He had and still has anxiety around people other than his parents and Dr. Anna has made sure he is as comfortable as possible at every visit. She gives him breaks and encourages us to nurse anytime he seems to be getting upset.


After seeing her work with my son, I decided to become a patient, as well. Dr. Anna is very professional, yet puts you at easy with her friendly demeanor. Her work speaks for itself and once she has her hands on you, you won’t question whether or not you will return. She doesn’t just “crack” your spine and move on. She spends a good amount of time working on muscles before and after adjusting the bones.


Her new center also has lots of other great practitioners and she offers tons of free classes and workshops on a range of wellness topics. Highly recommend!!

Theresa S.

Dr. Anna is an incredible healer and practitioner whom I have seen for over a year and whom I have now sent friends, students, colleagues, and family.


I see Dr. Anna for general wellness and for issues that come up as a result of day-to-day life, illness, musician injuries, and as a compliment (and assist) to my yoga practice and business.  I have sent my yoga students (and their babies!) to her to assist with prenatal and postnatal challenges and also have recommended her to many friends and family so she could help them reduce and remedy chronic pain.


I have always been nervous about and around medicine and doctors.  From the first appointment, I felt like Dr. Anna truly listened to my concerns and made sure to address and discuss each one thoroughly, plan a course of treatment, and then provide follow up instructions.  I have left every appointment with a better knowledge of my body and how to live and move in such a way that I feel better.


After a recent accident, I was experiencing lower back pain in a way that made sleeping and standing for long times a real challenge – I made an appointment and the improvement was instant and marked. Also, I am a musician and have dealt with TMJ for years: Dr. Anna has worked with my and with my body in such a way that I can now make music pain and tension free when in the past recommendations were all based around reactionary solutions (pain medicine) rather than proactive solutions.


I am so grateful to Dr. Anna for her ability to make me feel so much better, for her commitment to ongoing professional development that keeps her at the cutting edge of her profession, and for her commitment to sharing healthy living and wellness throughout Central New York.

Erin T.

Dr. Anna is amazing! She’s very thorough. She educates you on you injury and you body to help you understand why you are experiencing discomfort and how the adjustments are going to help. While I was treated she gave me some literature on stretching to do and postures because I sit at a desk all day. She truly cars about you, even after you leave the office.
Dr. Anna treated my son as well. I had no idea the impact he was taking as kid. They have a lot from their tumbles and falls, poor diets and stressors at school. After a few visits, I saw a drastic improvement!
She has a great sense of humor and an excellent bedside manner. The only regret you’ll have, is not going.
Thank you Dr. Anna!!

Cyndi D

Anna has been a great help to me. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 30 years due to a bad back. She has mad it possible for me to enjoy a normal life and continue working at the age of 64.
I have the greatest respect for her as she gives me the time needed and listens to my problem.
I have gone to others who run an assembly line and give you a 3 minute treatment.
Anna takes all time needed. She has taken 40 minutes when needed.

Take the time and go see her. She will give you the time and treatment you need.

David F

Dr. Anna is one of a kind. I started to see her at 22 weeks pregnant right up to delivery . I attribute my healthy pregnancy and fast delivery to her. Dr. Anna always answered any questions I had , and really took the time to get to get to know me as a patient. I left every session feeling so much better than when I first came in. I also appreciated learning the exercises/stretches to do at home. She is a true professional and I’d recommend her to anyone seeking chiropractic care. Thank you , Dr.Anna!

I have to admit, when Dr Anna first told me about the program, I was a little nervous. I try to be a good eater and make good, healthy decisions, but it doesn’t always happen. But I knew I didn’t like the way I looked and felt, so I knew it was time for a change. I was still carrying around a lot of baby weight (and my “baby” is now 2!). Time for a change! So I decided to go for it. I knew support was crucial, so I asked my husband and mother to get on board. They agreed.


Day 1 came and it wasn’t so bad. Even the first 3-4 days weren’t too bad, once I figured out how I like my shakes. I was enjoying having the fresh fruits and veggies always available, and so did my kiddos. Things got a little “tough” right before Day 11 (protein day), but I made it!


After the full 21 days, I saw noticeable differences…on the scale, in my clothes, in my energy level. The numbers were fantastic in my post-purification meeting.


I (we, the hubbs and I) have continued this healthy lifestyle and I am still seeing weight loss. I love that it is also affecting my children in a positive way. They are asking for fewer processed snacks, and for more fruits and veggies. Added bonus!


I am continually talking the program and its benefits up to people.


Thank you so much to Dr Anna for her constant support!!

Robin L

I completed the SP Purification Program for the first time at the start of summer. I felt sluggish and couldn’t lose weight, so Dr. Simpson recommended I give it a try. The first few days were the hardest, especially when my family continued to eat in a way that let’s just say wasn’t on the cleanse. I found with packing ahead, and creativity it became much easier and I didn’t want the foods I used to crave. I lost weight and inches, but also felt much healthier! I will definitely be doing another cleanse when I’m able!

Crystal A

Thank you Dr. Anna for ALL you have done for us! We soooo appreciate you!


Your professional supervision was fantastic! feeling great still and 5 lbs less. Thank you Dr Anna for all the great recipes and encouragement!

Mary S

On Tuesday May 20th, 2014 I started the process, the 21 Day Purification Program. Having suffered with gluten intolerance and many other allergies, I’ve had a hard time losing weight for 16 years. I tried many times to lose weight but had no success. The first two days were hard as I was addicted to caffeine so I had bad headaches. As the days went on, drinking the shakes eating lots of vegetables and some fruit became so much easier. By the 10th day I started feeling like a new person! I had more energy and I was exercising every day. By the end of the program I was feeling AMAZING! When weighing in I was feeling great about my accomplishments. I had finally lost 12 pounds, 3 inches in my hips and 3 inches in my waist. So I would definitely recommend this to anyone struggling with weight loss and to someone looking for a healthy start!

My name is Craig and my wife and I did the 21-day Standard Process cleanse in the fall of 2014. I had never been able to stick to a diet before, but with my wife’s support, we entered into the cleanse together and were both very successful.


I am a 46-year-old man with poor eating habits. My goals for this cleanse was to “reboot” my system that was plagued with artificial everything, from sweeteners to processed and fast food. I would skip meals, especially breakfast, and binge eat on junk food late at night. I felt tired most of the time, had considerable mood swings, and was very introverted in my relationships.


Physically I suffer from very high blood pressure, cholesterol issue, endurance, and severe acid reflux. I was looking for a miracle.


The cleanse changed so many bad habits I had built up in my life. I was more thoughtful and intentional at the store – looking at organic fruits and vegetables, reading labels, and selecting a higher quality food to put on my family’s table. I was eating at regular times throughout the day, drinking high quantities of water, and making healthy choices when wanting snacks.


After about a week of physical transition, a noticeable change in my energy level was felt. My sleep was deeper and I awoke more rested and energized. I had not taken anti-acids throughout the cleanse because I never suffered from acid reflux or heartburn. I stopped taking my blood pressure medicine because my pressure had normalized due to the cleanse. My weight loss was moderate (I lost almost 20 pounds over the 21-days), but the biggest loss was my bloated stomach and fat around my waist. Pants that I could barely button were easy to button and comfortable to wear.


Not to mention the mental improvements. I felt more engaged in conversations. I felt my thinking was more clear and focused. I wasn’t plagued with fatigue throughout the day. It was the most alert I have felt the most of my adult life.


I would have to say the most important improvement was when my kids would join in by eating better foods. It hit me how important it is to establish healthy eating habits early in life in order to build a better life.


I highly recommend the cleanse to anyone who wants a new start and foundation to build a new healthy lifestyle. The cleanse was a major investment of time and energy to plan and implement the meals and snacks, but the benefits came rapidly and encouraged us to persevere. In the end, the effort put into it is well worth it.

Craig D

In May I started the standard process 21 day purification program that Dr. Anna-Marie was offering at one of her ladies info nights. I had been feeling very tired and rundown. And after talking with Dr. Anna she helped me realize that it was all the sugar I was eating. I do love sugar!


The cleanse was hard at first, those sugary treats were screaming at me to eat them. But by the second week I was feeling really great so it was getting easier.


By the end of the program I lost 12 lbs and was feeling great, but more than that I had learned a whole new way of eating and taking care of myself, that I have continued with and am actually enjoying! Thank you Dr. Anna for giving me the tools to change!

Kris B

I went into the 21 day purification program a bit hesitant, but I am so glad I made the decision! By the end of the 21 days, I felt great- no headaches or bloating, my acne and eczema was clearing and almost gone and I didn’t have that afternoon crashing feeling. I was down 8 pounds and continue to lose weight since the program. It’s a total reset for your body and you learn really fast what foods do not agree with your system. My absolute favorite part of the whole program was how I learned how to feed my family. My two year old can open the fridge and have access to many colorful and flavorful fruits and veggies that weren’t as available before the purification program. He has found many new favorites himself! Dr. Anna-Marie was so supportive and helpful throughout he whole program and had so many great suggestions so that we wouldn’t get bored with it. I’d recommend this to anyone looking to get healthier, lose weight, or even just become more informed about how to fuel your body!

Lee R

I visit Dr. Simpson on a regular basis and she has really helped with my back and postural problems. She does muscle work, and uses kinesio tape to train help retrain the correct function while helping to keep the adjustments. It has really helped me feel healthier and be able to do more both at work and at home. She is really knowledgeable about nutrition and has helped me make healthier choices in food selections to reduce inflammation. Also she has recommended vitamins to supplement my dietary needs and give me more energy. I recommend anyone to go visit her. She has really helped me!

James S

I am very thankful to Dr. Anna. I have been in chronic pain for over 20 years and have seen multiple people over the years consisting of other chiros, physical therapists, and acupuncturists, and I have never gotten any relief. I recently went to a pain center where they suggested cervical injections, that come with risks. So, in a last-ditch effort I decided to see a chiro one more time. Several people recommended Dr. Anna so I decided to give her a try.

I have been seeing her for a few months. During that time I have had to take a pain reliever only once, where I was taking it daily from years. I can function again without pain. I no longer have a constant headache and I can drive in a car without being in pain again.

I especially like that she is not like so many other chiros that I have seen. Since she spends about an hour with her patients, she does not demand that you come to her three times per week (of course she assesses that based on your own issues).

Go see her! You will not be disappointed!

Kelly AR

I can’t recommend Dr Anna enough!! She is an amazing chiropractor! She is great with both of my kids. I know they are growing great and sleeping better because of Dr Anna. My daughter who is 3 loves going and will ask to go see Dr Anna. My son who is almost 2 is just starting to talk but I know he too will be raving about Dr Anna soon because he feels so much better after he goes to see her.

It is amazing to get great chiropractic care and nutrition advice and tips! I love that Dr Anna teaches you how to take care of yourself!

Elaine D

Dr. Anna is amazing. She has helped me change my eating habits and I’m loving it,and I feel great!
She is just so full of information, I am amazed at all the knowledge she has.
Thank you soooo much.

Kristina B

Absolutely amazing! Doctor Simpson not only spends quality time on you but also educates you to continue healthy habits outside of the office. I would recommend this practice to everyone!

Lindsay S

Dr. Anna-Marie is a great and thorough doctor of chiropractic that truely cares for each and every patient. If you or your family/babies need chiro care or are in need of sound and research based nutrition advice/counselling, look no further, in my honest opinion, you may find great care at Simpson Family Wellness.

Peter S

Best Chiro ever!
