BRISTOL - City and Chamber officials joined Dr. Hugues Valcourt in celebrating the grand opening of the recently remodeled SoVita Chiropractic downtown.
SoVita Chiropractic located at 281 N. Main St. opened last December and underwent three months of renovations.
Outside, visitors can see a giant-sized model of a section of four vertebrae.
Inside, there is ambient music, and a big screen TV displaying a crackling campfire.
The office is also decorated with miniature palm trees and little waterfall machines.
Touring the new office with Valcourt’s family, City officials, other chamber members and Cindy Bombard, president and CEO of the Central CT Chambers of Commerce, remarked that Valcourt had done a “fabulous” job in updating the space.
Formerly the office of chiropractor Dr. Mitchell Rose for more than 30 years, Valcourt says his office will help the people of Bristol to “reach optimal health through natural, drug free, chiropractic care.”
“We were able to acquire the space after Dr. Mitchell Rose retired and he saw us fit to continue his good work in the community,” said Valcourt.
Valcourt has 24 years of experience as a chiropractor, much of which was spent practicing in South Florida. He then moved to Connecticut with his wife, who is a teacher in Cheshire. Valcourt encouraged people to pay him a visit and see how chiropractic adjustment can help them to live healthier lives.
Karlos Boghosian, founder of SoVita Chiropractic, said that the Bristol office is the seventh SoVita Chiropractic location. He said that SoVita Chiropractic was eager to partner with the community and hold health education seminars.
“We want to get involved in this community and work together to make it a better place for our children,” he said.
“We are happy whenever a new business comes into Bristol, especially downtown,” said Bristol Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu, who attended the ribbon cutting with Peter Kelley of the City Council and Justin Malley, executive director of the Bristol Development Authority.
“Between this and the Centre Square development, a lot of people who come for medical appointments will be exposed to downtown Bristol,” said Malley. “It will give them a chance to look around and see what we have here.”
