Together, they bring a holistic approach to wellness that has been born out of their mutual gifts, talents, and desires to help one another. They complement each other bring a fresh approach and unique offering to Upstate SC that is truly without precedent.
Dr. Jessica Caruso
Dr. Jessica Caruso brings a wealth of chiropractic knowledge and experience to the Upstate. But what really sets her apart is the fact that she cares. She genuinely wants to help people feel their best: physically, mentally, spiritually. Her story is unique. After undergoing a potentially devastating accident while in college, she turned that experience into a lifelong calling to help and heal others. She graduated from the New York Chiropractic college and dedicated her practice to getting sick people well without drugs or surgery. She specializes in low-impact, holistic treatments that get to the root cause of her patients’ problems. Areas of concentration include pregnancy, post-natal, and pediatric, among others. After 17 years of successfully treating thousands of devoted patients, she still actively pursues continuing education through chiropractic classes and programs in these concentrations to stay at the forefront of her profession. She is a certified Reiki Master Teacher and childbirth educator.
Fun Fact: Dr. Jessica had to turn down Justin Bieber’s request for a backstage chiropractor while performing in Boston because she was breastfeeding
“For over a decade, Dr. Jess has been so much more than a trusted chiropractor, she has been the center of my wellness team. As I’ve navigated multiple chronic and acute illnesses, she’s provided incredible care based….
My three children and I saw her regularly for the past 7 ½ years (until she moved out of state). The main reason for our family-wellness appointments was for chiropractic adjustments. But, our visits were so much more….
Dr. Jess is incredible! She is so compassionate, caring and understanding. Unsure and a little nervous about chiropractic care for my newborn son; he has had lots of eating issues and colic since he was born…
Brian is a visionary. He is a big-picture thinker who also possesses the ability “to get granular” and see his vision through. Brian started his professional career using his Computer Information Systems degree in the tech space, then moved on to managerial sales roles with two multi-billion dollar companies. From there, he parlayed his experience and talent into a Regional Sales Manager role for a startup software company. Although quite successful in these early ventures, Brian wanted to make more of a difference in the world. “There was something gnawing at me to give back and help people in their day-to-day lives,” he says. So, he took a pay cut to join a startup organic vitamin company, where he became immersed in health and wellness at a micro and macro level. It was also during this time that he was helping his then-girlfriend, Jessica, brand and launch her chiropractic business in New Hampshire. By 2010, she asked him to come on board to help run the business side of company so that she could focus her attention on helping her valued patients. This model has worked well for them and, 12 years later, they moved from New Hampshire to South Carolina to found Pillar Holistic Living.
“Jessica and I complement each other well and help balance each other out. At core, we are both dedicated to helping people feel better and live healthier. And we both possess different skillsets and have unique real-world experiences that enable us to make Pillar Holistic Living such a dynamic, all-encompassing wellness offering for families.”
