About La Luna Natural Health
Dr. Karin Nealon, D.C.
Dr. Karin, chiropractic physician and founder of La Luna Natural Health, relocated from Portland, Oregon to San Diego, Calfornia with her family in 2013. She incorporates her strong medical and scientific background to complement the manual therapy techniques of joint manipulation, soft tissue work, and craniosacral therapy. She specializes in natural healing, health and wellness for women and their families.
Karin graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Long Island University. After spending a few years in molecular research she was awarded a United States Fulbright Scholarship to study in Australia. Upon her return she continued in research and transitioned into the clinical healthcare realm, working in both a hospital emergency room and cardiology department. Discouraged by the way Western medicine often focuses on managing disease rather than promoting wellness, Dr. Karin became determined to blend the sciences of Western Medicine with the holistic approach of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. She returned to school at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland.
While attending Western States, Dr. Karin birthed the first two of her three wonderful children. The experience of birth and motherhood focused her career interests to include care of women and infants. It also developed her passion for nutrition and healthy eating, especially in regard to children.
