Our Story
  • Our chiropractic treatment philosophy is based on three main principles:

    Understand the patient, their medical history, and goals for treatment.

  • Provide safe and effective treatment.

  • Educate the patient so that they understand their condition, and learn how to minimize the likelihood of a future recurrence.

Our mission

Our number one mission is helping patients. Our goal isn’t to keep you dependent on having to schedule visits forever. We don’t just give you treatment, we also give you the education and the tools to maintain your own health as much as possible and get back to the lifestyle you love.

We want you to be comfortable and confident with your healthcare choices, so we offer complimentary consultations for new patients so you can meet our doctors and ask questions about your treatment options. If we feel that you would be better served by seeing another provider, we have extensive contacts in a variety of other specialties.

To get an idea of the kinds of issues we solve, check out our blog for extensive education about things you can do at home to improve your health and mobility.

Our philosophy

The beauty and effectiveness of chiropractic lies in simplicity.

At Hosmer Chiropractic Health, we believe that each person has the ability to heal themselves if given the right opportunity. We will guide you to achieve better health naturally through our different services such as: Chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, physical rehabilitation, etc.

The staff at Hosmer Chiropractic Health understands that while pain is the primary reason most people seek treatment, simply eliminating your pain is only the first step to lasting relief and improved health. We will help you take control of your health and show you how to feel your best every day. From helping you break the pain cycle to showing you self-care secrets that stop pain from returning, the doctors at Hosmer Chiropractic listen carefully and provide a customized chiropractic treatment and guidance according to your unique situation and health-related concerns and goals.

    Leigh
    (she/her)LMT (#24241)Multnomah Village

    Growing up on the sleepy seaside of Oregon, Leigh found joy wandering rolling forests and rocky beaches. In 2012, she drifted inland, spending several years developing her love of sweets as a pastry cook before attending the University of Western States for massage therapy. Leigh’s style blends a love of movement and condition-specific target work, using a clinical foundation of trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques (METs), myofascial work, sports therapy, and tool-assisted bodywork. In addition to that foundation, Leigh’s style is informed by the deep compressions and stretching of Thai massage and the rhythmic flow of Fijian.
    Always looking to grow, Leigh is currently studying Sarga, a footwork-based myofascial modality out of Hawaii. When she isn’t developing her massage style, you can find her experimenting in the kitchen, attempting any number of arts and crafts, and reading through the never-ending stack of books on her bedside table.

    Ashley embarked on her massage journey in 2009 when a simple shoulder rub inspired her to pursue a career in massage therapy. During her time as a student, she discovered a passion for rehabilitation care and set out to work with chiropractors after graduating in 2013.

    Romy has always loved massage, both giving and receiving. She has experienced many massage modalities, especially when traveling abroad, then later would practice on her friends for fun. Eventually, she changed careers from working with international websites to follow her “calling”. She attended East West College and has been a licensed massage therapist since 2004. She’ll often massage one area while gently moving the corresponding body part to help release tension in the muscles by “untying the knot”. Her style of massage flows smoothly while addressing constricted areas, and she’s always listening to how your body is responding to achieve the best results.

    Whether you’re new to massage or been seeing one for a long time I alway encourage open communication and prioritize fostering a safe and comfortable space for all. I tend to incorporate a variety of techniques in each session to best suit the patients preferences and treatment goals. including but not limited to Swedish, deep tissue, cupping/vacuum therapy, myofascial release, PNF stretching and trigger point therapy. Addressing the body as a whole unit working together allows my clients to get the most out of their sessions and address the underlaying issues at hand as well as focus on the area that is feeling the most discomfort. Outside of the treatment rooms I am a compassionate nanny, and lifelong animal lover with 2 kitties and a rescue pup that I absolutely adore!
