Dr. Rebecca Sutphin was raised in Raleigh, North Carolina. She went to UNC Wilmington for her undergraduate degree in Anthropology and received her Master of Arts degree from NC State University with a specialization in Forensic Anthropology. She attended Logan University in St. Louis
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, stress, and PMS improved overnight after having experienced these for several years. No longer needing medications, she was inspired to start learning about Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and investigate combining Chiropractic care with Acupuncture. 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.
Dr. Sutphin has been trained in several specialized Chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Activator, Thompson, COX Flexion-Distraction, and received a 100 Hour Certification in Applied Kinesiology (AK) from the American Board of Applied Kinesiology. Dr. Sutphin blends cupping, soft tissue protocols and trigger point release to assist the benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment and muscle manual therapy. While attending Logan University for her Doctorate, Dr. Sutphin interned at the University's Viscerosomatic Center. At the clinic she was able to incorporate Functional Medicine and Nutritional supplementation along with Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatments to help patients with muscle and skeletal complaints, but also with digestive, immune or endocrine disorders.
