Linda Squires

Linda Squires has been a practicing chiropractor since 1987. She recently moved to Grand Rapids from Boston, Massachusetts.

Linda earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. In 1982, she moved to the St. Louis area to attend Logan Chiropractic University. After graduating in December 1985, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts.

From the start, Linda was looking for a holistic practice and began her career at The Health Alliance in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She practiced there from February 1987 to September 1993. Then, she opened her own practice in Brookline, Massachusetts called Amethyst Chiropractic.

In 1999, Linda, another chiropractor/acupuncturist, and a massage therapist opened Amethyst Center in Davis Square in Somerville, Massachusetts. The trio created a holistic center with eight treatment rooms which included chiropractic, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, naturopathy, and energy therapies. She left Massachusetts and Amethyst Center to move to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2012, where she began her career with Holistic Care Approach in February 2014.

Linda’s treatments include non-force chiropractic techniques along with muscle work and energy therapies. She is interested in truly finding out the underlying issues for each new patient and then determining the best plan of treatment for that individual. Linda uses Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT). The original non- or low-force technique of chiropractic was developed by Richard Van Rumpt. At the heart of the technique is a method of challenging and leg measuring (similar to muscle testing) to detect the presence and location of spinal misalignment (subluxation), and a thumb thrust for correction. Structures included n analysis and corrections are vertebrae, ribs, muscles, discs, cranial, soft tissues, extremities, and some ligaments.
