Dr. Kerry (Chia-Hua) Chan was born and raised in Taichung, Taiwan.

Watching her mom recover through Chiropractic care after many other care options failed, she was inspired to become a chiropractor.

She has taken hundreds of hours of additional training, including caring for a range of people from infants to elderly, as well as, numerous chiropractic techniques.

Attention prospective patients and returning patients, Dr. Cantwell will be on a mini-sabbatical until mid-August 2022. She places her highest confidence in the other chiropractors on the TLW team!

Dr. Cantwell studied chiropractic at Life Chiropractic West, graduating with honors in 2005, after living and working in her homeland of New Zealand, she returned to the Bay Area in 2009 and soon opened the Thriving Life Wellness Center, affirming her own mission that everyone has the innate ability to thrive. Her approach is holistic, helping the body help itself, to achieve balance and sustainable healing.

It’s called Bio Geometric Integration (BGI), a way for releasing stored potential energy in the body, via a combination of lighter touches and deeper adjustments to release tension patterns that have accumulated over time in your body. BGI focuses on locating your body’s inherent strengths and reconnecting the whole through breath and subtle movements. This approach builds energy and potential for release, rather than focusing only on the painful or out of balance area, which has become symptomatic

Dr. Cantwell also has a passion for working with mothers and babies, specializing in pre and postnatal care.

Dr. Cantwell is trained and certified in the Webster Technique to help prevent or alleviate breech presentation. Specific chiropractic adjustments align the pelvic structures and release pressure on the soft tissues, including the round ligament which reduce intra uterine constraint, creating space so the baby can move on its own into a head down position. The Webster Technique complements other methods that your doctor may perform to change the position of the baby.

She wants to ensure your baby has the greatest chance for a safe birth without complications. Her approach brings a connection to your pregnant body as a whole, while specifically assessing and aligning your pelvis so your pelvic bones are balanced and freely moving, releasing pulling torsion on the uterus, and giving space for gravity to help your baby to move into the ideal position for birth.
