About Dr. Swanson
My healing path really began when, as a college freshman, a motorcycle accident caused injuries that changed the course of my life. The brilliant doctor who saved my leg never knew how much he inspired me to become a healer myself.
A few years later, my first chiropractic visit came about on a day I was suddenly unable to get out of bed or stand without help. I felt helpless and frightened, so when the doctor’s quick adjustment restored my balance and coordination, it seemed like some kind of miracle.
I wanted nothing more than to help other people as I had been helped in my pain and distress, so I began training as a physician’s assistant. When I added courses in nutritional science and energetic healing, along with a Masters degree in psychology, I now had the tools to approach physical problems from several different angles. Then I earned my degree with honors from the L.A. campus of Cleveland Chiropractic College in 1988.
Continuing to build on my ability to tailor individual treatments, I went on to study Qi Gong and Noetic Field (Energy) Balancing, and spent an African internship learning traditional healing herbs. I also studied Buddhist meditation under the tutelage of a Dr. Lobsang Rapgay.
When I began working with children, it became important to understand children with special needs, so I enrolled in pediatric educational seminars. This enabled me to work with people of all ages and with varying extenuating circumstances.
Although I learned many things in many classrooms, the most important was that all aspects of a person must be involved in order for effective healing to take place: mind, body, emotions and spirit.
I also came to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual, and how important it is that a healing program be tailored to fit that person. The best medicine in the world is of no use unless it addresses that one person’s specific issues.
I look forward to assisting in your unique healing process
