Our mission is to provide natural healthcare to our patients through chiropractic, nutrition, and wellness education.  We are committed to teaching our patients and our community about the human body`s ability to heal naturally and we will strive to help our patients reach their goals of optimum health and function.  We thrive on treating patients, not diseases.

Why Did I Become A Chiropractor?

Welcome to our website!

We hope that it helps you enhance your journey to better health and wellness. As a wellness focused clinic we do our best to help people like yourself achieve your maximum potential. This task is something we don’t take lightly, and we work constantly to bring you the best intentions, information and care. 

Our chiropractic philosophy is that health is innate to the human body, and that left un-interfered with we will achieve the ultimate goal of total wellness. We know that the body is self-healing, self-regulating and self-controlling. It was inherently meant to be magnificent and express life and function perfectly.

Unfortunately, we have grown up with an overwhelming exposure to so many negative and detrimental influences to our health. Fast food restaurants, pollution, nutritionally depleted foods, prescription medicines for every ailment, even tap water in many communities all add to the burden of maintaining good health.  Advertising has us all believing that breakfast cereal will give us all the nourishment we need. We are exposed to so many commercials telling us that health comes from a bottle of pills that we believe it.

To our advantage though is the fact that we are living in the Information Age. What used to be knowledge only available to the privileged doctor, is today’s public domain. We can all research, study and acquire any information about any of the health topics we desire that can help us make better and more well-informed decisions about our health and life.

We hope this website brings you much of the information you need to make all the right decisions concerning your health and life choices. We invite you to browse through this site and check out all of the information on it. If you need assistance in finding information or if there is anything else we can do to help you in your journey to optimal health please contact us.

Good health to you,

                   Dr. Rachel Northern and the Staff

Whether you are seeking relief from an existing symptom, looking to improve your general health, or looking to achieve optimal wellness, we will do our best to serve your needs with the utmost professionalism and compassion.
