Meet Dr. Tiffany Johnson
At a young age I knew it was my life’s work to help people; little did I know how my purpose would unfold for my life. As a teen, I applied myself to sports and academics (just kidding, not really the studious type). I enjoyed the camaraderie of team but started struggling with ankle sprains and knee pain throughout high school basketball. That’s when I was first introduced to chiropractic. My chiropractor, Dr. Bonnie, helped me understand the stress I was putting on my body. Through regular care I was able to continue to be an active athlete throughout my high school and college years.
Dr. Bonnie’s approach inspired me to pursue chiropractic as a career. My goal was to focus on kids and sports and I enrolled at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. It was at that time that I married the love of my life, Craig.
We had both babies in Chiropractic school in which there were many lessons along the way. I was on bed rest with Callyn, our first, for 4 1/2 months as I started my first trimester. I always wondered my lesson back then, but it was a big one. I learned about Chiropractic during pregnancy, post-partum and for our baby. I had a personal experience which has impacted how I practice now. Our second pregnancy was at the end of my classroom requirements and the start of our internships. I was back in school 5 days after giving birth to Gavin (2 of which were a Saturday and Sunday) because of the requirements. I nursed, rocked, pumped and changed diapers (along with my other close friends in class) in our classroom because Chiropractic is focused on families.
I believe in truth, honesty and results. Regardless of whether I’m working with our team or with patients, my focus is on helping people be their best in every aspect of their lives. I love working with challenging cases, especially women and children. These situations dramatically impact the family unit and one of my major goals is to bring families back to ‘Happy and Healthy’. I take the time to dig deeper and help those who have lost hope, find the source of their illness, and through chiropractic and a variety of lifestyle modifications, begin a process of healing.
My interest in family health is a personal one; as a wife and mother of two children, I understand the challenges families face today when trying to live a wellness lifestyle. Life surely is busy, but all worth it.
Craig and I live in West Fargo with our daughter, Callyn (14), and son Gavin (11). We love this community and all it has to offer for kids and adults alike. We have surely made our home here! We maintain a wellness household and don’t take antibiotics, medications, vaccinations. We don’t have a medicine cabinet with Tylenol, aspirin, cough syrup, antibiotics, or any other pills or potions, but instead utilize chiropractic, nutrition, essential oils and other holistic methods to maintain strong and healthy immune systems.
I love helping people. I love when they see the ‘AHA’ moment and know in their heart and soul that they will get better. I want to impact the world, one family at a time. I want moms to be healthy so they are role models for their children and the standard of health. I want women to believe in themselves, to know they are worthy of all that is waiting for them. And I want the children of the world to be medication and antibiotic free; to not be labeled with a diagnosis; and to always remember that their body is whole, not broken.
Anything is possible if you Believe…in yourself, your body, and the power within you to heal.
Meet Dr. Marqelle Albrecht
A lot of people don’t have the convenience of knowing what career to pursue early in life…I was not one of those people. I saw my hometown chiropractor, Dr. Carol, for low back pain in junior high. Unlike Dr. Tiffany (J), I was a bookworm and carried around all my locker contents in a book bag. Dr. Carol was so nice and knowledgeable and was able to help me using only her hands. I WAS SOLD! I wanted to help people the way she helped me. If I had only known then that chiropractic is so much more than pain relief.
After attending NDSU here in Fargo, I too enrolled at Northwestern Health Sciences University. While in Bloomington, I started dating a boy from back home in South Dakota, Michael. We knew each other from high school but it didn’t turn into anything until there was 5 hours of distance between us.
It was during my second year of school when I decided I wanted to steer my chiropractic career towards children and young families. I had always loved children but until that point I had chiropractic care in a box and kiddos didn’t fit in there. I sat through a weekend of seminars where I heard a speaker talk about how it made more sense to start children off on the right foot with chiropractic care as part of a healthy lifestyle as compared to chasing symptoms in adults. Suddenly it clicked! Of course every child should be under chiropractic care. The nervous system is at its most crucial stage of growth and development from birth to two-years-old. If we can ensure that the nervous system is working at its best in children, we can set those little ones up for a lifetime of reaching their true potential.
There was no doubt in my mind after graduation that I wanted to end up back in the Fargo area. Michael and I now live in Mapleton with our Saint Bernard, Walter. In my spare time, I love to be outside, create arts and crafts, visit friends and family, quote movies, and motivate people.
Chiropractic is not just a form of healthcare geared at reducing discomfort. Instead it is a lifestyle, a true wellness lifestyle. Being checked at the chiropractor regularly, eating right, exercising, getting adequate rest, and having positive stress outlets are all pieces to a healthy puzzle. I know now the power chiropractic carries and I want to share that with as many people as possible. I want better for families- better health, better lives, better futures- and I want to help them get there.
Meet Lyndi Rosenau, Chiropractic Advocate
Here at Healing Touch Chiropractic, we see our patients as more than just numbers. We know you are people, busy people coping with stress and pain, and are here to hlep. We all are on our journey to wellness, we all are unique and we wanted to share a bit of our stories with you sto that you can rest assured that we understand where you are becuase at one point in our life or another, we have been there ourselves.
Many of our patients have been living wiht pain for a long time, or have come to believe that living pain free is not a reality that can be achieved. And we belive you can’t live your best life, be your best you, when coping with pain. You see, Lyndi had been suffering with daily headaches for some time and was given multiple medications and told she would just need to deal with the pain. That’s when she decided to give Dr. Tiffany a try. Dr. Tiffany took the time to take a more holistic look at the day-to-day triggers that were causing the headaches. By addressing her overall health, nutrition, hydration and chiropractic care, Lyndi’s life was transformed. That transformation lead to something very special, two year after first seeing Dr. Tiffany, Lyndi believed so much in the transformation she saw in her own life, that she chose to come on board and join Healing Touch as a chiropractic advocate.
So when you walk in the door for the first time, or after an injury or are in pain, there is not only a friendly face to greet you, but someone who truly understands how you are feeling and the transformation that is possible. Maybe you aren’t suffering from pain, but are just overwhelmed by the day-to-day busi-ness of being a wife and mother. Lyndi knows that too, she and her husband Chris make their home in Glyndon. Their lives are blessed and full with activities for their daughter Callie and their son Landon. When you are in the office say hi, and ask more about her story, we are so blessed to have her expertise and caring in our practice.
Meet Michelle Ihry, Yoga Instructor
I love helping people. That’s what most of us will say we want our life to be about, so I would like to share my WHY.
18 years ago I decided to achieve one of my goals, to be a dental hygienist. I enrolled in Moorhead Tech while my husband, Reed, and I were raising our kids in Devils Lake. This was a huge leap for me and one that I learned so much about.
- With persistence, anything is possible.
- To always be aware of what you LOVE to do, then do that.
I have always been ‘into fitness’ as I knew it improved my health in so many ways: relieving stress, getting strong, meeting new people and decreasing the amount of stress put on my body through my job. That’s when I fell into yoga. I started taking classes regularly in Devils Lake and the instructor inspired me to learn more about yoga, so I began teaching some classes every week.
Fast forward a few years, 2012: We moved to Fargo! I started teaching at my daughter’s business, Healing Touch Chiropractic. After a year of weekly classes, I wanted to know more so I got my 200-hour certification. Yoga is focused on the mind/body connection. It is not a competition with others or yourself. It’s about being connected, learning how to breathe while moving. It is for everyone.
Outside of fitness, my favorite things to do are: spend time with family (husband, our two kids and their families), be with grandkids, spend time at the lake, make art, exercise (yoga and crossfit are my favorites), experience nature in all seasons, meeting new people and spending time with friends.
