Align, awaken and embody your optimal health and well-being. This is what Dr. Keneen McNiven, D.C. is all about.
McNiven is a gentle and holistic chiropractor, and has been practicing over 30 years. She started in Boulder, Colorado and now practices in both Durango and Mancos. She currently makes her home in Mancos.
Two things that make McNiven’s work unique are her holistic approach and her intent to teach and empower clients to learn to help themselves. She addresses all of a person — the spine, the muscles and also the unique “postural reactions and shapes” that impact their spine and their health as well. The shapes are the result of previous unresolved and undigested stresses, that are part of the spinal misalignments and part of the pain and energy loss, but unfortunately often missed by other professionals.
While utilizing traditional Chiropractic techniques, muscle-testing and gentle stress relieving hands-on work, along with breath work, she also uniquely addresses the reactive “postural shape” of a person. McNiven states that when she addresses not only the spine, but also the body’s postural reactions that impact the spine, people heal faster, regain their energy and experience an expanded awareness of how to help themselves heal as well.
