Who We Are

Dr. Amy Robinson
Family Chiropractor

When people ask me why I do what I do, I tell them: " I want to change the world."

I want to help make this world a better place - one that is healthier, happier, more connected and whole. I want a world where people truly understand how magnificent they are, how amazing their bodies are, and that they can do anything.

"But you’re a chiropractor" - I imagine many puzzled people thinking; ‘How does that change the world?’

What they don’t know is this:

One person alone does not change the world. But one powerful idea - a vision that others can join on to - THAT carries the possibility to change everything.

As for me, I believe that the most important role I can play in my family, in my practice, and in my community, is to help people believe in what is possible for them, reconnecting them to their own inherent ability to function, heal, grow and evolve.

As someone with a deep understanding of health and healing, I support people in how they think about themselves and their health. Because the only way that people change their habits - is first to change how they think. THEN, and only then, will they change how they ACT.

The way I see it, if I can help more people today grasp how magnificent they are, and support them to make more choices that will allow themselves and their families thrive with vibrant health, happiness and vitality - then their world changes. And our entire world changes, too.
