Chiropractic Team

Dr. Dave McCann, D.C. (Clinical Director) is a 1997 honors graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis. His background in engineering prepared him well for his systematic, yet highly creative approach to working with the human body. His extensive study of Applied Kinesiology gives him an excellent knowledge of the muscular system and how it relates to not only the skeleton, but also to the organs and the energy meridians of the body. Through his use of kinesiology, or “muscle testing”, he discovers the hidden causes of dis-ease in his patients.

In addition to being an extraordinary chiropractor, Dr. Dave has a passion for nutrition. His use of the Zyto 5.0 Balance bio-communication device,which measures the body’s positive or negative response to subtle energetic impulses called virtual stimulus items (VSIs). The Zyto Balance and Applied Kinesiology testing, paired with his clinical experience, enables him to find the appropriate nutritional protocol to support virtually any health issue.Dr. Dave’s humor and compassion go far to creating a healing atmosphere for anyone fortunate enough to be on his table.

Dr Dave McCann leads a FREE monthly “Nutrition Discussion” on an evolving topic on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm at Adams Avenue Integrative Health.  Space is limited, so please call to reserve a place in advance if possible. 


Dr. Miriam Hashemi holds a Bachelor of Science in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West. Miriam continues to be a student, diving deep into Vedic Sciences, Neuro-Emotional health, and Functional Neurology to deepen the understanding of her craft and her role in the fabric of life.

Miriam’s first exposure to chiropractic began in 2001 when she started experiencing symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.  The chiropractic philosophy and the mind-body awareness that developed as a result of continuous chiropractic care set the stage for Miriam’s spiritual journey inward. Her passion is to empower those to be in alignment with their highest truth by helping people discover freedom in their bodies. All of the wisdom and presence is held in the body and to learn how to develop honor and reverence to feel your story is what she believes to be a beautiful path. Her holistic approach incorporates a combination of Network Spinal, Diversified,Bio-geometric Integration, Drop table, and Somato Respiratory Integration.

An avid traveler, Miriam’s first experience of service took place in Afghanistan, educating children in orphanages. Upon graduation, she traveled for 8.5 months in India, Nepal, and Indonesia participating in chiropractic service trips and temporary clinics. She is currently enrolled in Kundalini teaching training and enjoys dancing, cooking healthy foods, reading, running around in nature, and deep belly laughter.
