Dr. Annette McKinney, DC MSOM
Dr. Annette McKinney DC, MSOM is a graduate of the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. She is originally from Cleveland, Ohio and has a passion for alternative healthcare and empowering others to achieve wellness. While finishing her Doctorate in Chiropractic, she also worked to complete her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, taking special interests in women's reproductive dysfunction, chronic pain and nutrition. This dual immersion in Eastern and Western principles, supplements, and herbs allows her to achieve a high level of holistic healing prescriptions for each of her patients.
Dr. McKinney's chiropractic practice is influenced by her background in Chinese martial arts. She began studying bagua zhang, a form similar to tai chi, and qigong nearly 10 years ago. This allowed her to see the connections between these ancient arts and alternative healthcare. Dr. McKinney draws from her martial arts training to utilize acupressure points and body biomechanics to restore proper functionality during patient rehabilitation.
