I have mixed feelings regarding Dr. Manning and his theories/practice. On one hand, over the past several years he has helped me immensely with specific health issues I had been having at the time. I do feel as if he does actually care about the well being of his patients, yet, at the same time, as a previous reviewer stated, his salesman approach is very questionable. On several occasions he has attempted to push different supplements on me. When I questioned some of the ingredients or the purpose of one, he has become defensive and upset; other times he has not been able to answer questions about the supplements. I do not know if the brand he sells "Herbvana" is manufactured only for his practice or if others sell the brand as well (I have been unable to find the brand on an internet search). Regardless, it seems every time I mentioned a small aliment he tried to push at least another supplement or two on me (anything as simple as "my finger hurts today as I slammed it in a drawer," and I was greeted with something such as, "you must have an imbalance of XXXX and taking supplement YYYY will help you." And of course the supplements were very expensive (according to Dr. Manning though, "they are nothing but the best ingredients"). By the end of my treatment under Dr. Manning, he didn't have a clue what all (supplements) he had given to me. Regardless, I cannot deny the fact that he had helped me with certain issues. As I have recently relocated to another state, I have stopped going to Dr. Manning. Furthermore, for trying to create such a peaceful, relaxing environment at his office/Heaven Day Spa, it seemed as though you never knew what kind of mood he would be in. Sometimes he was your best friend in the world; some days a practitioner; some days a very cranky, sarcastic, condescending man. His staff was always very friendly but highly incompetent, consistently mixing-up appointments, charges to bills, etc.
Pros: Calming atmosphere
Cons: Expensive; Questionable products
