Chiropractic care is literally the practice of physical medicine.

Though hands-on healing is an art that goes back much farther than chiropractic, our profession is rooted in focus on the spine and its intimate link to the nervous system.

Chiropractic medicine is based on the idea that disruptions in the biomechanical structure, especially the spine, interrupt the communication system between the body and the brain, and get in the way of optimum function.

The lineage of chiropractic medicine honors the body’s ability to heal itself, and we use our hands to guide the body into its most optimum state.


Your body is not just a spine. You are a full being — an entire ecosystem consisting of mind, body, and spirit intertwined. Considering the whole system, I use mindful techniques to adjust the spine and fascial system with finesse and grace, using the least amount of force necessary.

My gentle, mindful approach to bodywork is especially appreciated by those with highly sensitive nervous systems or a history of trauma.

General signs and symptoms of spinal and nervous system imbalances:

  • Neck and back pain, tenderness, soreness, and stiffness

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness or balance problems

  • Reduced spinal mobility

  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in the extremities

  • Joint pain and stiffness

  • Low energy

  • Poor overall state of health

  • Poor tissue healing

  • Emotional irritability

Benefits of chiropractic care:

  • More balanced nervous system, which leads to improved digestion, brain function, immune system, circulation, clarity of thought, and many other great health benefits

  • Better body alignment and improved posture, which leads to increased confidence, sense of power and equilibrium, and decreased pain

  • More aligned structure, optimizing bodily function

  • Better ability to feel your body in space (proprioception)

  • Decreased stress, which has a ripple effect throughout your life


Chiropractors are required to complete the same prerequisites as allopathic medical doctors, and the first four years of our postgraduate training is very similar with the same foundational coursework in the basic sciences.

We are physical medicine doctors, so after the basic sciences, our education veers in the direction of spinal adjusting and hands-on care, where we can choose to study a myriad of techniques.

As a hands-on healing art, there are many forms of chiropractic care — truly something for everyone. My continuing education has been in the areas of women’s health, gentle techniques, somatics, energy, and trauma healing.
