Video: Introducing Dr. Becca Keyes

We are excited to announce the addition of Becca Keyes, D.C. to the team at Thrive!

You will likely see Dr. Becca getting to know people, observing, and learning the office flow in May. In June, she will begin adjusting and working on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and some Saturdays. We are pleased to offer more availability to all of you and also begin to accept more new patients in a more timely manner. 

Here is a bio from Dr. Becca:

Hi, I’m Becca! My chiropractic journey began in a high school health class where I connected the dots between the nervous system, the spine, and the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. I was fascinated that stress on the spine could cause so many health issues and that an adjustment could remove that stress, allowing a person to heal, feel good, move easier with age, and get sick less frequently. I couldn’t wait to help others realize how smart and intuitive their bodies are! 

I received a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from Michigan State University in 2014 and a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in 2017. After graduation I moved to Chicago where I served the South and West Loop communities. I adjust using diversified, activator, drop table, BGI and SOT which means my style is gentle and honors the body’s energy. I love to adjust all people but especially love to care for mamas!

My husband, Kevin, and I moved to Cincinnati last year with our bluetick coonhound Ruby. In January 2023, I gave birth to our son Henry at home. I love to go on family walks and hikes, play games with friends, host trivia nights, crochet, bake pastries, listen to podcasts, Ed Sheeran and Coldplay, and travel to visit our friends and family all over the country. We’ve enjoyed becoming parents and exploring this new place we call home!
