Dr. Sutphin gained interest in health and wellness while pursuing her forensic science studies. After suffering trauma from being hit by a car while riding her bicycle, Dr. Sutphin was amazed when Chiropractic care allowed her to quickly regain her normal function and brought effective pain relief without medication. She was inspired to go to Logan University to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
While studying at Chiropractic school, Dr. Sutphin received Traditional Chinese Acupuncture treatments for recurring digestive issues. She was shocked when her severe IBS symptoms improved overnight after having experienced upset for several years. No longer needing medications, she was inspired to start learning about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and investigate combining Chiropractic treatments with Acupuncture. Three years later, Dr. Sutphin achieved her goal to be a Chiropractic Acupuncturist and holds a Certificate in Acupuncture and Meridian Therapy in addition to her Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree.
