Early in her education, Dr. Boyd was fortunate enough to witness the profound effects of CBP® in a small chiropractic office, where classic symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, migraine headaches, ear infections, asthma, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and TMJ problems were commonly alleviated.
Bringing this knowledge into her own practice, Dr. Boyd is well on the way to helping develop Symmetry Health Center into The Community Resource Center for Optimal Health and Healing. As spinal health becomes more widely acknowledged for directly affecting one’s overall health and vitality, the benefits of modern chiropractic are also becoming more widely recognized.
In a natural extension of spinal healthcare, Dr. Boyd now addresses the five principles of wholistic health through her practice: Structural Chiropractic care, Physical Fitness, Nutrition, Stress Relief/Management and Sleep. She explains, “The amount of chemicals people are given as part of their health care regimen is appalling. I’m committed to helping people refocus on the body’s natural ability to heal, something that’s under-acknowledged in the current medical system.”
Dr. Boyd continues to broaden her knowledge with the most up-to-date research while pursuing the latest techniques related to a diversity of spinal issues. She attends advanced seminars on an ongoing basis and is an instructor in CBP® at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA. With less than 5% of U.S. chiropractors certified in CBP®, she wanted to ensure it was taught correctly while giving back to the same institution where she received her doctorate in 2005. Being immersed in a stimulating, learning environment with the latest equipment and resources readily available to her also benefits her patients.
With a successful history of applying CBP® for everyone from children through all life stages, Dr. Boyd is always looking for newer, better ways to help her patients. She was honored for her work and contributions in CBP® with the prestigious Chiropractic BioPhysics® Chiropractor of the Year Award, 2009, at The 31st Annual CBP® Convention. In addition, Symmetry has been consistently recognized in Alameda Magazine’s “Best of Alameda” issue. Her commitment to ongoing education in her field keeps her on the leading edge of chiropractic care in the Bay Area.
Originally from Boonton, NJ, Dr. Boyd has called the city of Alameda home for several years. Prior to her post-graduate studies at Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Boyd was a 2001 graduate of Bloomfield College, from which she holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a focus on Pre-Chiropractic studies.
Dr. Boyd has always been passionate about finding ways to enrich the everyday living experience and motivate her surrounding community towards living healthier lives, people she sees not just as patients, but at her neighbors.
