Treehive Chiropractic will host a ribbon cutting on June 13 to celebrate the opening of its practice in Parker. New to the Parker area but not new to the chiropractic world, this will be owner Tim Zittle’s third chiropractic practice. “This is a seven-year dream in the making, so it’s a little bit surreal,” Tim says.
The opening of Treehive Chiropractic means “everything” to Tim. He says he himself has had challenges of mental, physical, health and emotional and has been empowered by those people who helped him become “the best version of himself.”
“It means everything to me that we are going be able to help people here in Parker,” Tim says. TreeHiveChiro.com
