I love my sessions with Dr. Christine! Her approach to healing involves the whole being. She is gifted at assessing my body's imbalances and using a variety of modalities to restore health almost instantly. She is energetically very perceptive and works not only with my physical body but also my mental, emotional and spiritual health. Dr. Christine is gifted, compassionate, unique and a true gem. I highly recommend her! - Linda, energy worker
I credit Dr. Christine Lipat and Niu Health Chiropractic with helping me get through graduate school. Much more than helping me survive the stress, late nights and other deprivations that come with higher education, appointments with Dr. Christine Lipat have taught me so much about what my body requires to feel its best--what foods bring inflammation and which heal, what other environmental allergens and toxins to be aware of, and what supplements, and habits will help me offset these, and of course how all of these will help me maintain the positive effects of her low-impact adjustments. I most appreciate that Dr. Lipat's approach is not about creating a clientele dependent on her so much as one attuned to our own bodies and their needs. She teaches her patients the importance of health literacy and autonomy, and making informed choices for our current and future health. Dr. Lipat's approach, using muscle-testing and addressing structural, neuroemotional, chemical-nutritional obstacles to optimal physical, spiritual, emotional health, is gentle, intuitive and comprehensive. Go see her! - Tagi, 41, graduate student
I had my first ever chiropractic adjustment and kinesiology consultation with Dr. Christine Lipat last month. I was relieved to find that Dr. Lipat's chiropractic approach was way more gentle and holistic than I had expected! I came out of my session enlightened and affirmed in my desire to work towards emotional, chemical and physical balance in my life. More immediately, I came out of the session feeling utterly relaxed and at peace. After being diagnosed with asthma earlier in the year and having been dependent on antihistamines almost year round for several years to combat allergies, I am now taking a homeopathic remedy recommended by Dr. Lipat, and feeling much more empowered around managing my allergies. Mahalo a nui loa e Dr. Lipat! Thanks for guiding me on a niu holistic approach to health! *Testimonial update (5 months later): Aloha e Doctor Lipat! Just wanted to give you a quick update on my life/health. I've been trying to be conscientious about avoiding gluten, honey, mint, and tuna. I've been good about keeping my iPhone off, in flight mode, or away from me at nights. I have managed to avoid asthma medication, and was even able to do without the homeopathic treatment you gave me once it ran out. My hay fever has not gone away completely, but it is perceptibly less severe than in previous years. I do not wake up with the same amount of mucus needing to be expelled, and overall, I just feel healthier. I feel like the gluten-free diet was the game changer, but all the other bits have no doubt helped, too. I've been exercising regularly, too. - Teresia, professor
Dr. Lipat is a modern day shaman. I forgot what it meant to actually listen to my body and work in partnership with someone who is confident enough to share power with her patients. I will remember Dr. Lipat's empowering mantra, "if your body can create it (the ailment or dis-ease), it can uncreate it. Healing has been a journey of revelation on many levels for me. Thank you Dr. Lipat for your intuition, expertise, and professionalism. - Sonya, mom and education activist
Just finished another deeply healing adjustment with Dr. Lipat. I had gotten pretty sick with stress and kicked back my adrenal issues and other conditions, thus affecting many other noticeable differences in my body. Seeing Dr. Lipat for almost 2 months has delved me deeper into my healing and overall balance. I have reached new places of learning how the entire body works and immediately after there's always this shifted energy and things change around me. I have an overall sense of well being and happiness and things just work out. I'm understanding more this is true alignment. Dr. Lipat's approach is so different than other chiros that I've worked with. Her methods really look at all aspects of wellness and I feel and can see it in my body. Maraming salamat Christine for your loving care and healing gifts. I feel more renewed and aligned once again ♥. *Testimonial update: Dr. Christine T Lipat is an amazing practitioner! Since going to her for almost a year now, I've done the most deepest & life changing healing. Her kind, gentle & thorough ways have healed me in ways to move & progress through conditions I've been wanting to break through. I no longer rely on supplements & wish a condition would go away. She gets right to the point & guides you gently through the journey. My body has truly healed naturally. Please call and check her out. I assure you, you won't be disappointed. - Gigi, 40, cooking educator and nutritional guide
Dr. Christine is truly a professional and compassionate holistic doctor/chiropractor. I always felt better after our visits because she really took the time to find out what my body needed. Her methods in Upper Cervical Chiropractic are fantastic! If you are looking for a new doctor for your natural lifestyle definitely give her a try, you will be so impressed and surely feel better! - Sarah, active duty military wife
The first time I went to Dr. Christine I realized right away she is an amazing healer. She’s very knowledgeable, compassionate and generous. I came to her with a bad skin condition. I had been on these Western meds for like 20+ years but they had stopped working and I was getting bad side effects. The rashes covered most of my body and I had gotten quite depressed. She tested me for food allergies and has been working with me for several months. The rashes are 95% gone and I’m wearing a swimsuit again! woo hoo! I really love coming to her office too. It’s so serene and clean with calm music playing. A visit with her is so different from other doctors who don’t even shake your hand any more before they race out to the next patient. She really listens to what is going on with you – mind, body and spirit. Chiropractic is actually just one part of her work. She also does neuro-emotional technique, reiki and provides testing for environmental allergies too. My favorite is the reiki. You really get the sense she is healing you at a cellular level. Definitely worth every dime. – K.C., graduate student
Christine Lipat is by far the best chiropractor I have ever gone to … forever ever ever. I’m a massage therapist and yoga teacher and currently training for a marathon, so I am very much aware of all the kinks and changes happening within my body. I use my body alot and try to get weekly healing maintenance on my body. What I love about Dr. Lipat’s treatment is the wisdom and knowledge I take from each session. She is holistic ~ she sees the WHOLE human being, and treats your body as a holistic whole pinpointing the energetic, emotional, nutritional, mental and physical kinks out to you in the most gentle and intuitive way I have ever witnessed in a chiropractor. I used to be sorta anti-chiropractor back in the day because I was running into a lot of bone cracking kine of chiropractors. Christine is the exact opposite. She is so subtle with her work, yet it is felt sooo deeply within all the layers of your being and the work stays with you. Unlike other sessions I have had with other chiropractors, I do not suffer the same aches and pains or injuries after seeing Christine. My body takes to the healing and the healing integrates and gets deeper and deeper until it heals in the root. It is true healing. Her amazing depth of knowledge, her intuitive gift, her holistic perspective and practice and her gentle and subtle adjustments are a magical combination for a chiropractor. I recommend her to all of my clients, colleagues and super active and health conscious friends, because she is the complete package. Check out her toys too! Ask for her amazing crystal wand! It feels sooo good! Her pelvic adjuster table is wonderful too. You will learn a lot about yourself in many levels after a session with Dr. Lipat. Mahalo Christine for keeping me super healthy and deepening my connection to my body! – Darshan, bodyworker
When I think about my recent changes to take better care of my health, I have to credit Dr. Christine Lipat. Dr. Christine is truly a holistic practitioner who treats me with kindness, compassion, and respect. I think you will find her to be accessible and responsive to your needs,too. Together we looked at what was troubling me with my lower back, knees, and spine. Using a combination of assessments, Dr. Christine helped me see how nutrition and food sensitivities may be also be some of the underlying causes of my stiffness and joint pain. Her adjustments gave me some relief, too, as she helped me listen more closely to what my body has been trying to tell me for a long time. This very act of listening with her has attuned my awareness to my body’s own wisdom and way. Going to Niu Health Chiropractic also has helped me improve my food choices to reduce inflammation. Over time, with coaching and support, I have not only lost weight, but have also started to heal my depleted adrenals, too. Truly there has been so much to be excited about with more energy and returning mobility and agility in the body. I am so grateful to her and I know you will be, too! Woot! Woot! – Grace, 43, doula and early childhood literacy
I initially came in for extreme neck and shoulder pain and was treated for so much more. Christine Lipat, takes a truly holistic approach to health, considering diet, emotions and the environment during your first exam. And only gets better with each follow-up. She is reasonably priced, consistent and honest. I highly recommend Niu Health Chiropractic for anyone who is interested in long term health benefits and not just a temporary quick fix. – Joy, 44, student
Dr. Christine Lipatʻs holistic approach to health has helped me to improve my health and those around me! As a caregiver, my father has benefited from our new lifestyles. We eat healthier, exercise regularly, and take time to relax (doctorʻs recommendations). Dr. Lipatʻs intuition is spot-on! Iʻve had great results from my visits with her and feel very comfortable seeing her for just about everything. I highly recommend Dr. Lipat! – Eri, 26, office manager
I am a first time patient of Dr. Lipat. As a result of two visits I feel much better. I am especially comfortable with her doctor/patient partnership. I would recommend Dr. Lipat to anyone in need of her whole health approach to chiropractic care. – Anthony, 69, retired
Christine is a wonderful healer, with a powerful yet gentle touch and a huge heart. Her adjustments are soft and comfortable and simultaneously extremely precise and effective. I cannot recommend Dr. Christine enough. – A.K.
I really appreciate Christine’s deep medical, chiropractic knowledge and grounding in science combined with natural, holistic healing modalities. Her approach is powerful and effective in helping me find ways to address my health issues and concerns in tangible ways that make a difference in my day-to-day life. I like Christine’s gentle approach in using a combination of different chiropractic approaches with other holistic, natural healing systems and wellness counseling to address my health issues and concerns. I feel Christine’s treatment has helped reduce pain, stress and improved balance in my back, neck, shoulders and overall body. – Lori, 55 years old, nonprofit marketing communications consultant
Christine provided me with great chiropractic care at the LCCW Health Center. She was able to help me relieve various symptoms, while keeping the big picture of wellness in mind. At one point, I injured my shoulder and no matter how I moved it, it just wouldn’t seem to go back “in place.” It made a terrible clicking sound, felt quite uncomfortable, and kept me from playing flag football and training as hard as I would have liked for other activities. Christine was able to see me shortly after my injury, did a thorough exam, explained to me what was wrong with my shoulder, and then delivered a gentle adjustment that brought immediate relief. Her follow up over the next few visits was comprehensive and compassionate. [She was] very good at explaining why the body expresses pain as it does. And just explaining in general, why she was doing what she was doing. – Sandy, 32, chiropractic student
Christine is a wonderful chiropractor. I was uncertain about the whole idea because it was my first experience with chiropractic but she has shown me the importance of being aligned and what even minor adjustments can do for my body. I suffer from back issues due to dancing and from tendonitis in my wrists and hands. A few times a year my back would be in so much pain all I could do was lie down. Also, I could never open jars or bottles because of the twisting action on my hand and wrist. Christine is very gentle and always checks in with me to make sure I am comfortable with her technique. She also explains to me what she is doing, what my body is doing and what I can do in my daily life to avoid injury and feel good. I have not had a back episode since I started treatment with Christine and I always come away from my appointments feeling relaxed and refreshed. – Pamela, 40, HR and Finance admin
I am a chronic pain sufferer and my body felt the best it had in twenty years under Christine’s care. My chronic pain has been going on for twenty years plus. My chiropractic care has been going on for 18 years and Christine has fine-tuned the great work past interns began in my healing process. I don’t wake up with a “What’s gonna hurt today?” ethic anymore. Hallelujah!!! Christine was very low-key and non-intrusive and listened to what I thought my body was saying instead of imposing her own agenda. The positive results are a more upbeat outlook on life, a desire to reclaim some of the exercise possibilities that I thought were beyond me, and a much better sense of self overall. This all makes me a much happier camper and more outgoing = good times coming. – Robbie, 66, college registrar
