Chiropractic Redmond WA Michael Taggart

Chiropractor

Michael Taggart, D.C.

Dr. Michael Taggart has been practicing for more than 25 years. When he was young, he personally experienced the impressive changes that chiropractic care can do to an individual’s health. That’s why he decided to dedicate himself to the field of natural healing. Dr. Taggart is trained in Functional Medicine, Functional Neurology, and Chiropractic.

Dr. Taggart determines potential causes through detailed neurological examination, body chemistry and laboratory analysis, and with Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing).

Once the causes are found, health and function will be restored with appropriate treatment protocols involving some of the following: nutritional counseling, detoxification, Brain-Based Therapy (Functional Neurology), adjustments to spine, extremity joint, and cranial bones, muscle/trigger point therapy, and mind-body techniques.

Acupuncturist Lynnwood WA Alex Flores

LICENSED ACUPUNCTURIST

ALEX FLORES, L.A.C.

I graduated with a Masters's degree in Chinese Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2012 and completed an externship at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea focusing on musculoskeletal and temporomandibular disorders with great success in pain relief and chronic illness relief plans.

My first experiences with acupuncture were seeing individuals come in with severe pain and leaving with a smile at the end of their visit without pain. These extraordinary experiences made me want to pursue this life-changing therapy. I want to help many people with acupuncture to live an optimal and pain-free life full of health and vitality.

I became an acupuncture pain specialist through training in the Balance Method by Dr. Richard Tan and DNA, Distal Needling Acupuncture, by Bob Doane. I have treated many conditions with positive results and many success stories such as headache/migraine, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle pain, joint pain, sciatica and any acute to chronic pain conditions, fibromyalgia, Bell’s palsy, and fatigue.
