About Dr. Nina
Dr. Nina was in college at Tufts when she first tried chiropractic for her chronic back pain. After a short time under regular chiropractic care, not only did her back issues resolve, stomach pains that she had experienced since childhood also disappeared. This was an incredible experience that changed her life and set her on the career path to becoming a chiropractor.
Dr Nina graduated from Tufts University in 1987 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology, and moved out to Portland, Oregon to attend Western States Chiropractic College where she earned her chiropractic
degree in 1992. She had private practices in both Oregon and Tennessee before moving to the Boston area in 1999.
Dr. Nina has completed post-graduate education in working with children and pregnant women (as well as on-the-job training as a mom!) which gives her a special touch working with prenatal patients and infants.
Dr. Nina combines several adjusting techniques such as Koren Specific Technique (KST) and Applied Kinesiology, as well as various other forms of bodywork and she is certified in the Webster Technique for care during pregnancy. She also works with nutrition and detoxification to help facilitate the healing process.
Dr. Nina lives in Acton with her husband, two children and chocolate lab.
About Dr. Toni
Dr. Toni is a native of Woburn, MA. She spent her younger years playing many different sports and continued her athletic career at Bowdoin College, competing on and becoming captain of the women’s soccer and softball teams. Dr. Toni’s athletic pursuits helped her to appreciate the importance of having a healthy body functioning at its best. Still uncertain of her future profession, she graduated from Bowdoin in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience. She then went on to work at a small psychology clinic devoted to helping children and adolescents with various neurodevelopmental disorders. It was at this same time that Dr. Toni also discovered chiropractic! She became passionate about helping others achieve their health goals holistically with neurologically-based chiropractic care.
Dr. Toni received her chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, GA in December of 2017 and was honored as the Valedictorian of her graduating class. She uses a combination of adjusting techniques, including Koren Specific Technique. She has pursued advanced certification in pediatric care and is also certified in the Webster Technique to help moms throughout their pregnancies.
As a chiropractor, it is Dr. Toni’s ultimate goal to educate others on the body’s natural ability to heal from the inside out. In sharing this knowledge, she hopes to empower families to make healthier lifestyle choices.
In her spare time, Dr. Toni enjoys the outdoors and staying active. She especially loves taking her dog, Riggins, on hikes.
