Dr. Cherie Lechner-Lunato, DC
Body Divine – The alignment of your mind, body and heart…not just your spine!
Dr. Cherie Lechner-Lunato is committed to healthy, happy, families. With over 28 years of specialized knowledge and experience in chiropractic care, her holistic approach to her practice not only touches the whole patient, but the whole family. As a family care chiropractor, she has treated patients as young as one hour old and nearly 100.
Dr. Cherie (as her patients call her) is a partner in her patients’ well-being and a stand for the human potential of each person she treats. Her philosophy is to focus on the individual, determine their needs and then customize a treatment approach specifically designed for each patient’s health and wellness goals.
As a practicing family chiropractor, Dr. Cherie has worked with patients through many stages of life and through various states of healing and wellness. She’s assisted many individuals prior to starting their families by working with patients with fertility challenges or recurrent losses. Many miracle babies have been born after prospective parents have been told that they couldn’t conceive without medical intervention or traditional treatment had failed.
Chiropractic care during pregnancy reduces morning sickness, aches and pains and can even shorten labor up to four hours. Dr. Cherie has attended many home births of her patients and has cared for the mother after delivery with postnatal chiropractic care.
Dr. Cherie also offers care and services to newborns. 95% of a child’s neurological development occurs within the first year of life and is complete at age five. Subluxations (minor misalignments of the spinal vertebrae) can stress the nervous systems adversely, affecting virtually any of the body systems and functions. Gentle chiropractic manipulation throughout a child’s development can decrease stress on the nervous system and result in a child’s improved immune system, sleep and improved moods.
Sports & Fitness Care
In addition to the little ones in the family, Dr. Cherie’s experience in sports chiropractic benefits moms and dads in their fitness goals. Chiropractic adjustments increase athletic performance, decrease injuries, and reduces healing time when an injury does occur. She has worked with many marathoners, body builders, yoga practioners and triathletes as well as professional athletes from Joffrey Ballet dancers to pro-golfers.
Her additional services provided to patients include:
