Connie Buntain, CA, Office Administrator and Medical Receptionist
Connie was born (July 7th) and raised in Lawrence, Kansas. She is one of seven kids and moved here in 1987 from Colorado Springs. She has one daughter, two granddaughters and 4 great grandsons.
Connie has been a patient of Back In Motion since its opening in 1999. She very quickly became the doctors dearest and longest friend, so they couldn't have been happier to have her join their team [officially].
They say, "officially", because you may recognize Connie and thought she was already part of the team. That's because she has been helping the office and their staff for many many years by covering previous staff vacations and time off, so becoming a more permanent fixture in 2013 was a very obvious and organic transition after years of owning and running her own housekeeping business.
Connie assists patients with their appointments and insurance, supports the massage therapists, along with assisting the doctors with patient care, like monitoring and removing acupuncture needles during your session and keeping the office running smoothly. As smoothly as someone who does it all can anyway. The zookeeper to the zoo. Feeding of these animals encouraged :)
Connie is not only the zookeeper, but the gate keeper.
Connie is the first person in the office that you will make contact with. In addition, she will be answering your calls, emails, FB messages, making your appointments, dealing with your insurance company, collecting your fees, sending your FlexPay receipts...yes...everything but adjust and massage you.
A loyal friend and asset to the team!

Lindsay and her highly intuitive spirit, utilizes many soft tissue techniques, including: Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Release, Stretching, Therapeutic, Pregnancy, Hot Stone and Sports Massage and is Reiki certified. She has been an amazing asset to the Back In Motion team and their patients by increasing patients range of motion, flexibility and endurance, while decreasing their pain and improving their overall health (mind and body) by relaxing your mind and muscle and releasing soft tissue tensions, aches and pains.
When not providing healing at Back In Motion, Lindsay provides healing and support to addicts as a Support Counselor and she reached her long time goal of taking SWIHA's 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program in 2018 .
