Brian then pursued chiropractic studies at Life University in Georgia, earning his degree and obtaining a Maryland chiropractic license to kickstart his career in Baltimore.

After many successful years on the East Coast, Brian decided to return to Washington state, where he had first settled with his family after emigrating from Korea. The Pacific Northwest, with its stunning nature and welcoming community, always felt like a second home to him. Brian is thrilled to be back in this beloved region.

Brian’s path to chiropractic care was shaped by extensive research and exposure to various healthcare professions, including roles as a dental assistant, hospital intern, and physical therapy clinic observer. A pivotal mentorship with a chiropractor ignited his passion for the field, revealing the profound impact chiropractic care can have on overall health and well-being. Brian is particularly inspired by the ability to help patients not just alleviate pain but achieve enriched, healthier living through both acute and maintenance care.

The moment Brian knew he had chosen the right profession was when he saw the transformative, positive changes in his patients' lives.

Chiropractic treatment, however, allows Brian to directly and closely impact his patients' health, seeing tangible improvements and fostering a better quality of life.

Professionally, Brian is committed to providing the highest quality of care and educating the community about the importance of spinal alignment.

Beyond her professional life, Hailey finds joy in various creative pursuits. She enjoys reading and creating art, with a particular fondness for mushroom art. Additionally, she cherishes moments spent walking her dogs and dancing to music, embracing the pleasures of life outside of work.

Her decision to work in the chiropractic industry is rooted in the fundamental principles of chiropractic care, particularly the belief in the body's innate ability to heal itself when the nervous system functions optimally. Aahana has personally experienced the resilience that comes from a well-functioning nervous system, evident in her ability to overcome various stressors, physical setbacks, and health challenges.

Aahana knew she was in the right profession during a service trip to Mexico City, where she, alongside a group of chiropractic students, provided care to over 3000 people in just three days. One patient, in particular, left a lasting impression. Suffering from Bell's Palsy, she faced difficulties with basic activities like eating and smiling. Aahana seized the opportunity to provide chiropractic care, and after three days of treatment, the patient's facial paralysis had disappeared, and her smile had returned. This transformative experience solidified Aahana's belief that chiropractic care extends far beyond pain relief.

As a chiropractor, Aahana is a member of the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA) and holds Webster certification through them.
