Born and raised in Longmont, CO, Dr. Alyssa became a Texas resident when she left for college twelve years ago. Graduating with honors and earning a bachelors of science in Biochemistry, she worked a year in a research lab for a nutraceutical (natural pharmaceuticals) company, Mannatech Inc, in Coppell. Here she helped the company develop their market-leading antioxidant, Ambrotose AO. Wanting to help people on a more personal level, she started chiropractic school. In January of 2007, she graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas and went to work for several doctors in the DFW area before she opened her own Chiropractic healing center-Your McKinney Chiropractor-in the fall of 2008. In July of 2009, Dr. Alyssa joined with other like-minded healers to bring about RejuveNation LifeSpa, where people came to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect their mind, body, and spirit. But somethings are not meant to last forever. In September of 2010, Dr. Alyssa went back into private practice after closing the LifeSpa so to rededicate herself to more personal service of the public. Dr. Alyssa specializes in a holistic approach to healing, identifying the underlying, real cause of most problems, not just getting rid of symptoms. And since everybody is different, sometimes requiring different approaches to healing, she encompasses about 10 different techniques when treating patients. Massage and muscle work is incorporated with all treatments, including custom stretches and exercises. Some adjusting techniques used include the Thompson, Gonstead, Activator, Diversified, and extremity adjusting techniques along with the BioEnergetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.). In addition, nutritional and life/work stress pattern counseling is provided to make sure ALL of her patients health and wellness needs are met.
