“Dr. Charlie has aligned my spine and neck right before some of Moon Taxi’s biggest performances. I feel my best on stage when I have more energy and range of motion throughout the set. This greatly affects my performance with the ability to move freely during the music’s most energetic moments. Dr. Charlie’s ability to make his patients feel comfortable and at ease is an integral part of what he does with each visit. This is very important for me before show time! He has also taught me the value of good posture and how to be more conscious about it throughout the day. Everyone should visit and learn from Dr. Charlie!”
Wes Bailey, keyboardist (Moon Taxi)

“My neck is still feeling good after signing hundreds of books thanks to Charlie’s adjustment. Much appreciated!” 
John Densmore, drummer (The Doors)

“Big shout out to Charlie Kautz for his work prior to our show in Nashville.  Holistic and body working genius.”
-Bo Koster, keyboardist (My Morning Jacket)

“I met Dr. Kautz at Austin City Limits this year. After a year and a half on the road with Billy Idol, I had started to build up tension in my neck, forearms and shoulders, as our live show is very physically demanding. Charlie showed up 30 minutes before our show and spent 10 minutes with me. Immediately I felt relief in my arms and my rotator cuff. It was like my blood could start flowing in these areas again and it helped tremendously. I have come to see him in Wisconsin and he has taken me through stretches and exercises that will surely prevent future issues. The fact that his focus is so pointed to your specific instrument, combined with his general skills, makes him as unique and necessary as coffee in the morning.”
-Erik Eldenius, drummer (Billy Idol)

“Thanks for all of your good work keeping me up and running at the shows. The music is better as a result, Charlie!”
-Joel Cummins, keyboardist (Umphrey’s McGee)

“After 16 years of being on the road, bass playing finally caught up with me and I started having some pain in my joints and arms. I enjoy pain, but not pain while I’m playing. Dr. Charlie Kautz made me feel good and fixed my arms up nice so I can play bass all night long.”
Ryan Stasik, bassist (Umphreys McGee)

“I really appreciate Dr. Charlie Kautz’s work all the time and I think you would too. He’ll crack you up!”

-Dena Kaplan, producer/singer/dancer (Dena Amy)

I’m so much more limber, I’m faster, I have no pain, my back stays way straighter and I can do a lot more when I’m playing drums. My arms, legs, knees, ankles and hips just work way better. I recommend Charlie to every musician I know- to get treated by him whenever you’re on the road or can see him.”
-Vinnie Amico, drummer (moe.)

“Thanks Dr. Charlie. Peace.”
Common, hip-hop artist/actor

“I work with Dr. Charlie at the club and theater shows we put on, as well as all the festivals I see him at. Before I play, he helps take care of my voice and stretches out my arms, hands and wrists. The things he does truly encourages better performances out of people and it’s a very good service for us to have. Everybody loves Dr. Charlie because he’s super cool and can interact on the same level as all the artists.”

“Hey Charlie, thank you so much for some much-needed adjustments this past weekend. I stopped by the chiro room on a whim, not sure of the source of my thumb tingling, but your adjustments really helped me both physically and psychologically so I could concentrate on my job. For the first time in months, I can now give you 2 thumbs up! Thanks again.”
-Jefferson Waful, Lighting Director (Umphrey’s McGee)

“Dr. Charlie was exactly what the Bassnectar crew and artist needed.  We first met in the middle of a wild festival run where we were on with a lot of flights, van travel, and a new hotel (bed) every night).  Not only did he he align us, but he set us straight with a ginger shot and tips on stretches to keep us well – ones I used in my hotel room as often as I could.  Hope to see him again soon!”

-Nicole Fiorentino, bassist (The Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, The Cold and Lovely)

“For years I’ve had tension and pain issues in my hands, wrists, and arms due to playing and performing drums. Charlies adjustments and chiropractic work has been the most beneficial treatment I’ve ever received in alleviating these problems. After a session with Charlie, my entire body feels looser and more aligned, and I notice a significant reduction in the tension I feel in my arms, allowing me to play looser and end a show with my arms feeling good, not tight and sore. I’m confident that whatever physical issues you may be having, especially if you are a musician, Charlie can help you immensely. On top of all that, he’s a super cool dude. Thanks Charlie!”
– Steve Florian, drummer (Indigo Sun)

“Since I started seeing Dr. Charlie on a weekly basis, my musical performance level is at an all time high! I was diagnosed with a bulging disc in my spine and it does not help that I have to strap a 30 pound bass around my neck for hours at a time. Not only has Dr. Charlie helped to fix my problem, but has also given me advice on posture and pre-show warm ups to prevent further aggravation. My overall mobility and the fact that I’m not in pain on stage frees my mind and body to and allows me to focus on the music.”
-Jason Haeberlin, bassist/producer (Undercover Organism, Plaid Hawaii)

“Dr. Charlie does wonders with the spine! As a person who is constantly active, working as a nurse during the day and playing music all night, the stress that I harbor in my upper back can start to build on me. Charlie has some tricks up his sleeve for getting rid of the aches and pains that keep me from playing and feeling my best.”
-Ian Hutchinson, guitarist

“Charlie has helped increase my range of movement and comfort while playing music as well as in everyday activities, and has also allowed me to become conscious of how I carry out my routines. The first time he did some work on my arms and back was the day of a show, and after he was done it was quite possibly the loosest my arms have ever felt while playing. Dr. Charlie can provide you relief and he is highly qualified, professional, and very personable. I recommend his services to anyone who has experienced any of these issues that get in the way of accomplishing their daily necessities or lifelong goals.”
–Rick Carlson, drummer

“Seeing Dr. Charlie is one of my favorite things. Always shows up with a slew of vitamins, juices, and loads of musicians oriented chiropractic knowledge. Most importantly he always shows up with an amazing attitude that permeates through to anyone near by. When our crew finds out we are going to see him, moods are instantly lifted.  Not only is he one of my favorite human beings, his level of professionalism is unsurpassable. Dr. Charlie truly cares about his clients giving any and all advice he can to help your body out, often times he will even email you advice if he sees a simple Facebook post complaining of pain.  In one adjustment, months of neglect to my body from touring are erased.  I’ve even had a BROKEN rib fixed by this magic man!  If I could have Charlie with me every show we play I would be the happiest man alive. If you’re an artist or part of a touring crew get in touch with Dr. Charlie Kautz, trust me you will not regret it.”
-Keegan Westervelt, Production Manager (Cherub)

“Why can’t every festival have Dr. Charlie Kautz behind the stage, ready to give me an adjustment after the set?”
-Ryan Hug, Tour Manager (Cherub)

The Miramar Theatre/Brew City Bass (Milwaukee, WI)

-Jacob Barinholtz, drummer (Manic Focus, The Coop)

-Kevin Friedman (Carousel, Daywave)

“A real highlight of my festival experience was getting chiropractic work done by Dr. Charlie Kautz. Charlie is a musicians chiropractor and really knows his stuff.

I suggest looking him up, musician or not!”
-Collin O’Brien, drummer (Low Spark, Travelling Without Moving)

“I just had my first session with Charlie. Wow…can’t wait to crush the House of Blues tomorrow!!!”
-Chris Anderson, drummer (SunSquabi)

“Dr. Charlie!!! What a guy. I’ve had issues with my shoulder for a few years now. That has led to issues throughout my entire arm, especially while playing percussion. After spending some time with the doc before our show last night, I can’t explain how much of a difference it made. Not just physically, but mentally as well…it was nice to feel good to the point that i was free of any mental restrictions that might typically be there when attempting to avoid further pain. I thank you Charlie! Please give this guy your time, you won’t regret it, neither will your body!!”
-Todd Trettin, percussionist (Stereo Frontier)

“I played the show of my life tonight. I normally get fatigued when jumping around while playing guitar but Dr. Charlie made me feel no pain during my performance.

-Brian Koceja, Guitarist (Stereo Frontier)

Looking forward to catching another session at a show in the near future.”
