DR. SUMMER VAN ENGEN
DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC, REGISTERED NURSE, INTEGRATIVE BODYWORKER
“I discovered that I had ‘healing hands’ at age 12, but it took a few more years before I knew that chiropractic was the best path for me. Chiropractic philosophy starts with the principle that the body heals itself and that relieving stress on the nervous system by aligning the spine improves all the functions of the body. The idea made sense to me, but the chiropractic adjustment alone never seemed to address everything. I studied acupuncture, reflexology, myofascial release, and the scientific theories on electric microcurrents that might explain them all. I saw knee pain resolve by adjusting a toe, elbow pain disappear with cranial therapy, and scoliosis improve with the release of a scar on a leg. My practice lets me take the time with each client to give the most comprehensive treatment.”
Besides her doctorate in chiropractic, Dr. Summer holds a license as a registered nurse and certifications in acupuncture and functional medicine.
