William Alfini Jr., DC
After 14 years of practicing at Brady Chiropractic Group, Dr. William Alfini, DC has made the difficult but exciting decision to retire from his chiropractic practice and move to Virginia. He and his wife Cheri will be joining their family of 3 adult children, their spouses, and of course the grandchildren, who all live far to the east.
Dr. Alfini began his professional education earning a BA in Pre-Med Biology at Carleton College in Northfield, MN. He then served in the Peace Corps for 3 years in Ecuador, South America. During this time in Ecuador he taught Spanish to school aged children. He also supervised the building of a suspension bridge over the Meme River, a river about as large as the Colorado River. In 1979, he graduated Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. From 1980 to the present, he has practiced chiropractic primarily in group practices as well as running a solo practice in Rifle, CO, which he has called his home for quite some time. "I feel group practices are the way of the future. They allow practitioners to do what we love to do and the group practice can provide patients with 5 1/2 days of potential care each week," Dr. Alfini said.
Dr Alfini joined Brady Chiropractic Group in 2004. During his time in Ecuador, Dr. Alfini became fluent in Spanish and was therefore able to treat many Spanish speaking patients. Anyone who saw Dr. Alfini was always welcomed with a warm hello and would hear at least one story from him - even if they had already heard it two times before. When asked about his time here, Dr. Alfini said: "This is the best time I have had practicing. Treating the good folks who love living here in the Grand Valley, with the support of the three very special chiropractors here in this group practice, alongside the highly trained staff has been very special. I know I will miss this valley, the mountains, and the people here every day. I am encouraging all my patients to continue to reap the health benefits that Brady Chiropractic Group provides. "
All of us at Brady Chiropractic Group will miss Dr. Alfini, his sharp wit, kind heart, and wealth of knowledge greatly and wish him and his family nothing but the best for the future.
Christine Nelsen, Certified Massage Therapist
I am a Colorado native, grew up in Indian Hills. My two children and I moved to Grand Junction in 1998 and have enjoyed this area. In my previous career I spent a lot of years behind a desk helping people; though I liked it, it just didn’t feel like enough. In 2009 I returned to school for massage therapy and found my calling. Through massage I have discovered a wonderful and exciting new career and best of all I get to meet wonderful people and get to help them feel better through massage. I can help you relax, reduce stress, manage or reduce pain, increase ROM, and help your body find balance through massage, stretches, and different modalities.
Some of the modalities that I use are Swedish, Trigger point therapy, hot stone, energy work, Reiki, deep tissue and prenatal. There are hundreds of modalities to learn and I am eager to grow in my profession and learn more ways to help benefit my clients.
