About the instructor, Dr. Thuy Katzenberger, DC, Lac

Dr. Thuy Katzenberger, DC, Lac founded Chiropractic Healing Arts Center in 2004 upon graduating from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minnesota. While attending NWHSU, she obtained her doctorate in Chiropractic, Masters in Acupuncture and Bachelor of Science in Human Biology. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis, MO.

Dr. Katzenberger is passionate about life long learning and is dedicated to helping patients improve their quality of life. Raised with an eastern philosophy and trained in western and eastern practices, she integrates both styles into her practice.

In 2013, Dr. Katzenberger went to Tian Jian University in China to lecture and learn. It was there that she witnessed the amazing treatments for stroke, MS, and other difficult conditions that solidified her belief that patients thrive when they receive multiple modalities of care.
