Amy Lennon, DC

It really never gets old. I love what I do so it’s fun to keep studying it & searching for new techniques. I have acquired many ‘tools’ for my doc bag and continue to learn when it is best to use them. I am grateful for the notable, trustworthy & wonderful referral base that my patients can access, from surgeons to art therapists. I work daily alongside massage therapists, acupuncturists, and physical therapists in order to apply the most comprehensive care for you. The way I provide care is holistic, from soft tissue assessment & nutrition to the way you move and what your specific goals are; I am open to hearing what you need, be it complicated or just a quick treatment. I am thorough so I can be confident & then I can be as specific as possible with my care. My patients continue to bring incredible meaning and so much love to my life; I am so thankful.

Through the utilization of chiropractic he was able to continue playing competitive soccer throughout his undergraduate studies. This led him not join the world of chiropractic care.
