Dr. Kristine Tohtz, DC, LAc discovered chiropractic and holistic medicine at a young age. Having seen the wonders that chiropractic and acupuncture had on her family, she decided to dedicate her life to helping others with their ailments in a holistic manner incorporating these two healing arts into one practice.

After attending two supervised medical internships in Beijing and Hangzhou, China, she found advanced studies to be warranted and and obtained her Master’s of Science in Acupuncture (MsAc) through the National University of Health Sciences graduating summa cum laude in August 2014.

As a Certified Yoga Instructor through the Temple of Kriya Yoga, Dr. Tohtz uses yoga and meditation as a part of her treatment options for patients.  She is also a certified hypnotherapist through the National Guild of Hypnotherapy to assist with such issues as IBS, stress reduction and smoking cessation.

The combination of all of these healing arts is paired in a unique way for each patient for their optimal treatment, rehabilitation and general stress management. So that she may offer the most cutting edge treatment options for her patients, Dr. Tohtz attends numerous continuing education courses in rehabilitation, yoga, nutritional therapies, comprehensive evaluation of blood work, acupuncture, Chinese medicine and body work in various forms to name a few.
