Deana Brooksher DC graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1997 as a Doctor of Chiropractic, with the clinical excellence award. She founded The Center for Holistic Health in Decatur, GA in 1998. Inspired by her monthly hikes at Panther Creek, she decided to leave the big city and simplify her life. She sold the Center of Holistic Health to her colleague and friend, Dr. Gene Clerkin and moved to the mountains in 2004.
Deana Brooksher was inspired by her mother’s losing battle with cancer to find a better way for others to manage and heal pathology:
“I knew in my heart, the way children know stuff, that there had to be a better solution than declaring war on a body and cutting out its parts and killing its cells chemically and reducing a human spirit into a corpse in survival.”
Her training covers a wide variety of healing modalities including Network Spinal Analysis, Somato Respiratory Integration, Structural Integration, Applied Kinesiology, Sacro Occipital Technique, Soft Tissue Orthopedics, Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Nutrition and Yoga.
