Line cupcakes tins with liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all brownie ingredients in a blender or food processor. Fill cupcakes tins with the batter. For mini cupcakes, bake for 10-11 mins. For regular cupcakes - 16-18 mins. Cool completely. Mix all the icing ingredients together. Should be a liquid form. When cupcakes are cooled completely, either drizzle or dip the cupcake in the icing. Move the cupcakes to the fridge immediately for the icing to harden. Enjoy!

The chiropractic adjustment is key to maintaining health. When the spine is out of alignment, we often feel pain and reduced mobility. This is called a subluxation. Drs. Starkeys and Dr. Berardino are trained to find these subluxations by thorough examination and diagnostic imaging. The adjustment is performed by the chiropractor where a gentle thrust is applied to the body to realign the spine. This decreases pain and improves mobility, circulation and overall health.
Dr. Elizabeth Starkey and Dr. Berardino also offer dry needling. Dry needling is a technique for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. The technique uses a “dry” needle, one without medicine or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. It targets Myofascial Trigger Points, a taut band of skeletal muscle located within a larger muscle group that can be tender to the touch. They are located throughout the body and play a role in producing and sustaining feelings of pain.
We are also offering $25 Sports Physicals.
