When Dr. Blair was in high school, she was a competitive dancer who suffered from extreme exertion pain in her rib cage. She went to several doctors checking her lungs and liver, with all tests coming back normal. One of her best friends was a Chiropractic Assistant, and suggested that she come see her Chiropractor. She started receiving regular chiropractic care, and all her pain dissipated. Not only was she pain free, but she noticed she could breathe easier, her lifelong allergies disappeared, and she was an overall more energetic and positive young teenager. As her high school years progressed, she knew she wanted to become a chiropractor. Dr. Blair has always had a passion for health and fitness and a drive to inspire those around her to live a healthy lifestyle.

Allyson is extremely passionate about Chinese Medicine and she views it as an integral addition to our modern healthcare system. She has extensive training in western medical diagnosis and treatment which provides an important framework for her approach to patient care. She believes that physical symptoms are merely one piece of a large, complex puzzle and each person is unique. Thus, her goal is to take the time to understand each patient’s unique concerns, life circumstances, and history to offer the most comprehensive care possible.
Allyson is proud to offer a variety of services including acupuncture, custom herbal consultations, cupping, gua-sha, electroacupuncture, and nutrition & lifestyle consults. In addition to her Acupuncture license, she is certified in NADA (National Acupuncture Detox Association) Protocol, and Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT).
