Quality Chiropractic Care For Portsmouth
Portsmouth Chiropractor | Dr. Shawn Shapiro
I watched how our healthcare system made my grandmother more sick… My grandmother went into the hospital for a mitral valve replacement in 1997; her surgery went fine but her aftercare got her sick! Missed diagnosis, medication errors and apathy on the part of the medical staff, lead to her getting worse after the surgery rather than better. I thought to myself, “there has to be another way to restore dignity to healthcare and improve a person’s quality of life, by interacting with a doctor.” I pursued this concern, and found that our medical system was greatly flawed. It was ultimately based on the premise that everyone who was sick, was somehow missing something. I started to learn more about vitalism, and about how the body needed to heal itself. This inspired me to pursue a career in chiropractic care. I found that when practiced properly, chiropractic care could empower people and restore them to health again, as well as provide a way for their health to continuously improve on a regular basis. …read more >>
Massage Therapist | Danica Barron
I’ve always had a passion for the human form and how it functions. My interest in massage therapy stems from a firm belief that everyone needs healing and that the healing journey really never ends. I believe that rest and relaxation are both vital parts of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I think it is important that massage is used to complement the health benefits of chiropractic and other natural healthcare modalities. My goal is to continue my study of the human body, and to increase my knowledge on how to help people live more active and healthy lifestyles.
Massage Therapist | Samantha Lanouette
Ever since I was young, I’ve had a natural gift of healing and finding areas that ail the muscular system. My personal belief is a sound body is a sound mind. In my experience, by releasing the body, the mind can release mental stress. I’m happy to help you on your path to healthy living.

Front Desk Supervisor | Courtney Lison
After having studied at Worcester State University with a focus in Occupational Therapy, I found that my interests within healthcare had expanded into the realms of preventive and holistic medicine. In 2012, I was introduced to vinyasa flow yoga and instantly fell in love with the practice. In August of 2013, I received my yoga instructor certification at the 200 HR level through Health Yoga Life in Boston, MA. The all-encompassing positive influence that yoga has brought to my life in terms of physical wellness and stress reduction has led me to seek opportunities where others share the same mindset. The collective team at Port City Chiropractic has welcomed me into their group of professionals with similar values and given me a sense of belonging. I thoroughly enjoy working in such a high energy environment where the satisfaction is written on the smiling faces of the patients I greet.
