We were all told to stay apart.
But COVID-19 brought these two business partners together.
Here’s what happened. The rising pandemic in March 2020 had forced the temporary closure of massage therapist Danielle Ormsby’s popular O Light Body Bar in Ronkonkoma.
The doors were shuttered, yet this shrewd businesswoman from Sachem was hatching a plan.
While home, Ormsby learned that chiropractors were being deemed “essential workers” by the state. That meant chiropractors were still allowed to operate when people such as massage therapists, barbers and other service providers were not.
“I needed a chiropractor to keep our doors open, so I went out and found myself a nice, handsome one,” she said with a laugh.
Looks aside, Ormsby still had to vet this man. So, she sent some friends to try out the services of Dillon Kenul, who at the time was seeing clients in the office of his father, also a chiropractor, in the Bellport area.
The reports back were very positive.
Then, she tried him herself.
Keep in mind there was nothing really wrong with her at the time.
“But I had a life-changing experience,” she said. “He gave me one crack and I felt like my entire existence and my world changed. It was that intense. I had tears of joy. I went home, jumped up and down with my daughter. I was set free.”
That’s what Kenul, who goes by Dr. Dill, does for people. “I make people feel 10 years younger,” he says.
