Dr. Susan Levy, D.C., is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and a Diplomat in Chiropractic Orthopedics. As a wholistic practitioner, she has had over a quarter-century of experience in various branches of the health field.
Her broad professional career includes two certifications in Acupuncture, along with extensive study of massage, polarity therapy, and herbology. Dr. Levy also holds a degree in Registered Nursing, with expertise in such major fields of medicine as surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, cardiovascular, pediatrics, intensive care, and kidney transplant units.
Her first training was as a nursing assistant, which soon inspired her to become a registered nurse. She worked in many phases of nursing, including acute burn care and spinal cord injury rehabilitative care. She took classes in massage, reflexology, and herbs due to her interest in helping people by using non-invasive natural therapies.
She was then inspired to go to Chiropractic College, based on the successful treatment of her long-standing back pain by a chiropractor. During her time in Chiropractic College, Dr. Levy enthusiastically studied nutrition, cranial manipulation, and many other wholistic treatments.
After graduating from Chiropractic College, Dr. Levy started her wholistic practice in 1981. In 1985, she received the Chiropractor of the Year award from the Colorado State Chiropractic Society. In 1986, she received the Meritorious Service Award. She continued to study, taking post-graduate classes often, and earning a post-graduate degree in Chiropractic Orthopedics in 1987.
She helped organize the certification course in acupuncture for Colorado Chiropractors, and completed the course work herself, receiving certification in acupuncture in 1987, and continuing her acupuncture studies.
Dr. Levy has been studying and using Clinical Kinesiology since 1989 to evaluate patients and determine their appropriate treatments. This diagnostic tool, Clinical Kinesiology, provides a systematic pathway for evaluating each patient’s condition, that condition’s etiology (cause and origin), and the appropriateness of various treatments. Clinical Kinesiology allows a very in-depth evaluation of the root causes of dis-ease.
During the summer and fall of 1993, Dr. Levy appeared in a two-part television series, aired nationwide, on "Chiropractors," which featured her practice of Clinical Kinesiology.
Dr. Levy and Carol Lehr are the authors of Your Body Can Talk, published by Hohm Press. This book describes Clinical Kinesiology and acupuncture, and discusses several health conditions. It is a wonderful handbook for all practitioners using or interested in Applied or Clinical Kinesiology, as well as being an easily understood text for their patients.
Dr. Levy's positive, gentle, healing presence promotes an alternative method for restoring and maintaining health. Her popular seminars and monthly newsletters emphasize natural health care through balance, harmony, expertise, and love. She continues to research pathways to assist her patients as expediently as possible, and is eager to share this remarkable approach with her colleagues. She lives in Colorado.
