TIS parents Amy Lennon and Cliff Marhoefer, along with their team of providers at Hawthorne Chiropractic & Healing Arts, believe in a holistic approach to health care. As experienced chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists, their team works together to relieve pain. Amy and Cliff started Hawthorne Chiropractic over 20 years ago. “We have patients that have been with us since the beginning and some who come from as far away as Olympia and Corvallis,” says Amy. “I am now starting to treat not just the kids of, but the grandchildren of my patients!”
Amy and Cliff are both dedicated to continuing professional development in the field. They have evolved from using the excellent, but basic training that they received at Western States Chiropractic College, to becoming more fine-tuned through both experience and continuing education in contemporary, validated (sports) diagnostic techniques and treatment. “We love the problem solving part of our jobs as well as the co-treatment with other medical providers. There is so much more we can do when we put our skills and heads together.”
Amy is Graston and ART (Active Release Technique) certified and continues to seek out opportunities for self-education. Cliff is also certified in Graston and is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), a certification that necessitates monthly trainings for one year followed by a board exam. This allows him to participate with treatment and examination at sporting events. For Hawthorne Chiropractic, bringing new techniques and the latest research into their practice at the clinic has always been a priority.
It’s obvious that Amy, Cliff, and the rest of the staff have a commitment to their practice and their community, and it’s easy to see why people keep coming back. “We often hear from patients that ‘nothing else has worked’ and then they come here and it’s different. We are not bone crunchers. We take a whole body approach with our patients” says Amy. “All chiropractic clinics are unique, depending on how the providers were trained and their approach. Sometimes one experience isn’t right, but if people try a new provider and a new approach, the results can be very different. We love hearing from patients about what is working, and what may not be. We are really lucky to be able to enjoy our jobs this much.”
