  • "Helping a musician get in with a chiropractor at the clinic and coming back in the next day to hear him tell the doc it was the first time he woke up without pain in a long time!"

  • "This is a great opportunity to give back and to help artists be healthy.  It’s kind of my mission as a naturopathic doctor is to help people feel free and achieve a sense of wholeness again. Singers are often on the road; it’s hard for them to be healthy, and so I’m doing my best to support them on their journeys."

  • “I was able to get Dental, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and see a Naturopath all in two days! What an amazing amount of care! I couldn't be more thankful.”

  • "O+ injects our community with vitality every October, and we look forward to the spirit of mutual support that exists among business owners and residents surrounding the event. Some of our students have found us through events we've hosted during O+ weekend, and we value the festival's impact on our community all year long."

  • “I got the first massage of my life to sooth my overworked shoulders, and it was divine. On top of that I spoke to a doctor for a period of time about the risk I am at in regards to repetitive stress injuries as a muralist/animator. While these are things I was aware and fearful of for some time, his information was quite enlightening and presented in a candid and comfortable way. I am very thankful. Keep it up O+!”

  • "The most common theme that I found during treatments was how grateful everyone was.  It made it such a rewarding experience. Then being able to go out and see the performances was incredible. I needed a weekend of live music as much as they needed massages!"

    Liz Welter, LMT

  • “The music in the streets  and, selfishly the business it brought to uptown Kingston. So many wonderful out of town visitors stopped in and the conversations were filled with laughter. What a great event for people watching in addition to everything else!!!!”

    Diane Reeder
    Diane Reeder Kingston Candy Bar - Local Business Owner
  • “I can’t think of any better way to trade services than to play music for medical care.  Massages, Reiki, acupuncture, dental work … it’s a real pleasure.”
