Dr. Jay Kitzman started with an interest in wellness at an early age. He particpated in many sports throughout his youth including soccer where he rose in ranks to the professional level. After completing his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology from Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa, he channeled his interest into personal training starting with the individual. He managed multiple fitness clubs and instructed many personal trainers.
After several years in the fitness industry, Dr. Kitzman wanted to expand beyond the fitness industry and have a greater impact on the healing and wellness of the individual. He wanted to learn first-hand the techniques that would lead to the body fostering healing and wellness as a way of life.
Dr. Kitzman chose to enroll at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa for many reasons, but the strongest pull was it's recognition as the "ivy league" of such study. During his time at Palmer, he also studied under Dr. Richard Yennie, Chiropractor & Diplomate in Acupuncture, one of the first non-Asians in the modern era to bring acupuncture to the United States and the first to combine acupuncture and chiropractic in a healing arts practice. He received his certification in acupuncture, and passed the NBCE acupuncture exam.
Dr. Kitzman further enhanced his education by traveling to The Republic of Madagascar to further his chiropractic and healing skills. Dr. Kitzman is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, Council of Chiropractic Acupuncture and the Council on Sports Medicine.
Dr. Kitzman strives to connect his patients to their total wellness based on the four aspects of healing in eastern philosophy including mechanical, chemical, energetic and soul.
