Melissa – Office Manager

I have been a patient at Van Every Family Chiropractic Center since 2000 and an employee since 2005. My son Aiden was born in May of 2007. The day after he was born he had his first adjustment!! He continues to be adjusted on a regular basis. Aiden had a lot of digestive problems as an infant and we discovered that he was allergic to milk, soy and wheat. At the time I got him adjusted about 2 to 3 times a week. It made a significant difference in his disposition. His colic stopped and his digestive system regulated. Aiden continues to get adjusted weekly with Dr. Saylor’s technique, KST. It is a non abrasive technique that Aiden loves. I feel so fortunate to have exposed my son to chiropractic care from birth. It has clearly contributed to his well being.


Hi my name is Denelle and I have been on Van Every’s team since 2008. I really enjoy working in an environment focused on healing. Personally I have been a fan of chiropractic since the 80’s. Chiropractic helps me manage the tension in my neck and back. Regular adjustments also help me manage my stress and sinus headaches, without medication. It simply keeps me in balance. My most profound KST adjustment occurred after a 48 hour food poisoning episode. I had very sore ribs and was aching everywhere. I can’t even explain how much better I felt after Dr. Saylor adjusted me. So I can attest that an adjustment can help you heal faster. We have a lot of pediatric patients in our practice. It is great to see chiropractic through the childrens perspective…they get it….they know when they are out and tell their parents when they need an adjustment. Some of our youngsters who practice sign language have made up a sign for an adjustment. I enjoy encouraging patients to keep on track with their health goals. It is really rewarding to see their progress. I love all things summer: water, sun, boating, and gardening. When the clouds come out, you can find me antiquing or shopping. I am a mother to a cockatiel, named Buddy whom I adopted in 2002 and spoil rotten and a chihauha named Piquita who loves to come to the office.




Hi! My name is Kathy, and I’m the newest member of the Van Every team. After retiring from a communication company and being home for a year, I got bored (just like everyone said I would!). I wanted to work again, but do something I enjoyed that was fun and rewarding. I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunity to work for Dr. Saylor. The atmosphere is fun and it’s rewarding to see how many people are helped by Dr. Saylor. Never having seen a chiropractor before, I was surprised to learn after my initial scan that my shoulder pain was coming from my neck. After thinking about it, I realized it was probably from carrying a ladder for 25 years! I had immediate relief after my very first adjustment! I now have my husband Mark coming on a regular basis, and he feels great too! Regular adjustments have helped his lower back pain and carpel tunnel syndrome. I look forward to getting to know all of our patients and learning more about the amazing qualities of chiropractic care.






My family encouraged me to try chiropractic treatment as a natural approach to healing when I was pregnant and struggling with sciatic pain. I was very impressed with my results and have continued with care under Dr. Saylor with my three boys as well. I believe our regular adjustments have kept my kids healthy; we have not needed to visit our pediatrician for a sick visit in three years! I have loved my experience with the Van Every family so much that I was thrilled to join the team in June of 2008.


Heather, a Massage Therapist, has been a part of the wonderful Van Every Family since September 2002. She has a daughter named Kaitlyn born in 2006, and a Golden Retriever named Kenobi (yep Star Wars reference). Besides massage therapy, she loves music (especially the Beatles), traveling, and being a mom. Heather received her schooling at Carnegie Institute in Troy, and has taken additional training at William Beaumont Hospital to help broaden her knowledge. She specializes in Oncology and Hospital Massage as well as Reiki, which is an energy balancing technique.


I am a Royal Oak native and it is my pleasure to join the Van Every team as a Massage Therapist. After studying music in college, I wanted to start a career in which I could learn and help others to live healthier, less stressful lives. A family friend suggested I study Massage Therapy at Carnegie Institute in Troy, which I did in 2009 and loved it! I am trained in techniques that include Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Pregnancy massage and Lymphatic wellness massage. I look forward to meeting you and working with Dr. Saylor in helping you achieve your health goals!.
