Brandon Linatsas, D.C.

Chiropractor

Dr. Brandon Linatsas was born in Marrietta, GA, while his father, Dr. David Linatsas attended Life Chiropractic College. Dr. Brandon, as his patients like to call him, moved with his family to Nashua at the age of one where his father founded Nashua Family Chiropractic. Dr. Brandon attended Nashua public schools and after graduating high school, attended Nashua Community College where he earned his Associate of Arts degree in Automotive Technology. While he still has a great passion for fixing cars, he realized that his love for chiropractic and helping others was his true calling.

In 2010, Dr. Brandon headed to the Bay Area of California to attend Life Chiropractic College West. While there, he was an active member of the Student International Chiropractic Association, Student American Chiropractic Association, World Congress of Chiropractic Students, Student International Federation of Chiropractic Organizations, and Delta Sigma Chi professional chiropractic fraternity. He graduated in September of 2013 with Clinical Honors.

The Nashua Family Chiropractic clinic and his father, David were a life-line source for chiropractic care and education. In 2015, Dr. Brandon was ecstatic to realize his life-long dream to join his father in practice as a doctor of chiropractic. Today Dr. Brandon owns and runs his family business as an integrated practice, while his father is enjoying retirement. Dr. Brandon lives an active lifestyle with his wife and two children and enjoys outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, camping, and soccer.

Johanna Lisle Newbold, D.C.

Chiropractor

Dr. Johanna Lisle Newbold is a New England native, born and raised in Massachusetts. While working in Information Technology for a Cambridge based biotech firm Dr. Johanna had some health problems that left her unable to enjoy her favorite activities.  After several attempts and multiple approaches towards regaining her health, she tried Chiropractic.  The experience was so powerful that she decided to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr. Johanna completed her bachelors in Biology and her doctor of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta Georgia. Prior to starting her degrees from Life University, Dr. Johanna completed a 1 year massage therapy program, with continuing education in Reiki.

Dr. Johanna focuses on Neurostructural Integration. Unlike many conventional chiropractors in the region, Dr. Johanna draws upon her experience in technology and engineering, along with her massage and Reiki background, for a unique approach to health.  Her approach allows her to help patients get fantastic results from care.

While not in her practice, Dr. Johanna can be found spending time with her family, running, or working in container vegetable gardens. Dr. Johanna’s hobbies include knitting, reading sci/fi fantasy novels from small publishers, and gluten free/dairy free baking.  Dr. Johanna served as Ward 8 Ward Clerk in Nashua from 2015-2017.

Vicki Irwin, L. Ac., Dipl. Ac.(NCCAOM)®

Licensed Acupuncturist

Vicki has been practicing in the healthcare field for over 20 years. Starting her career with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, she worked in the field for 15 years where she gained experience in medical, surgical, oncology (cancer), in-patient hospice care, and most recently in obstetrics and delivery. While Vicki had a wonderful career in nursing, she started to realize it was not a perfect fit for her.

Vicki’s draw to acupuncture happened almost upon accident. About ten years ago she found herself skeptical, sitting in the office of an acupuncturist for her own personal health issues that her doctors had been unable to manage well. She had decided to make the appointment as a last resort before a surgery she did not want to have. A year after receiving acupuncture, she no long required surgery, was off all of her medication, and had felt better than she had in a decade. This, Vicki describes, was the missing piece for her personally and professionally which led her to study acupuncture.

In 2011, Vicki acquired a Master’s Degree in Chinese Acupuncture Studies from the New England School of Acupuncture. Since then she has specialized becoming a Diplomate in Acupuncture with The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Vicki has prioritized safety in her practice by passing a National Clean Needle technique course. She is also a member of the NH Acupuncture and Asian Medicine Association.

Today Vicki maintains her NH State Acupuncture License as well as her license as a Registered Nurse in the State of Massachusetts. Most of all today she loves being able to integrate her nursing experience into her acupuncture practice.

William Fecteau, LMT

Licensed Massage Therapist

William recently moved to NH from Texas, where he graduated from massage school in Houston in 2016.  In 2018 he studied in Dallas, TX and achieved certification in orthopedic massage and integrated manual therapy.  In 2019 he traveled to the big island of Hawaii and learned Lomi-Lomi from a Kahuna, a traditional Hawaiian shaman whose lineage has preserved healing ways from ancient times.
“My work is focused on treating the structural causes of myofascial dysfunction, not just the symptoms expressing themselves as muscular pain and tension.  I look at skeletal alignment, joint function, muscular balance, nerve glide, and muscle firing patterns.  This comprehensive approach to bodywork will be different than your standard massage experience.  You will leave feeling nurtured and cared for, but you will also be empowered with an understanding of why you experience chronic pain and tension, and armed with the knowledge and tools to create lasting change in how your body feels on a day-to-day basis.”

Kathleen Lopez, MS, RDN, LDN, CDCES, CNSC, CLT

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Kathleen was born and raised in Iowa, has always been active in athletics, and she believes in family, faith, and hard work.  She has pursued and completed a BS and an MS in nutrition/dietetics due to her interest in medicine, sports, and in an attempt to fix her own chronic health problems.

Kathleen had suffered from abdominal pain, bloating, and fatigue since childhood, and after years of doctor’s visits, tests, and diets, nothing seemed to help. As she would not accept this as my fate, she is happy to say that she is now completely recovered and reversed my underlying illnesses.  This is why she is empathetic and so passionate about helping others!

Kathleen believes that putting evidenced-based practice into action is the key to maximizing health. She has had the opportunity to work with thousands of patients in several different areas of dietetics for over a decade, and this has given her a very unique perspective.

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist, Certified Nutrition Support Clinician, and Certified Leap Therapist, she uses tools that go far beyond food changes. The programs that she has designed address the physiologic principles of health, and this is why her patients and clients are able to recover and live their best lives.  Changes are best adhered to when minimum effort is required for maximum health benefit.  She am excited to accompany you along your health journey!

Sarah Truchon, BA

Billings Manager

Sarah is a New Hampshire native currently living in Amherst. Sarah attended high school at High Mowing School in Wilton, NH where she captained the lacrosse, basketball, and soccer teams. Sarah went on to attend the University of New Hampshire where she received a BA in Sociology with a minor in Spanish. She graduated summa cum laude in 2013 as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Kappa Delta honors societies.

Upon graduation, Sarah decided to pursue her lifelong passion of horseback riding and became a professional rider. After some time, Sarah then took a job working for an equestrian retail company, hoping to blend her love of horses with an office setting. Sarah started seeing Dr. Brandon in September of 2016 for severe back pain after a particularly bad fall off a horse. Sarah was quick to realize the value of Chiropractic care, as well as the amazing team Dr. Brandon has assembled in the office. When an opportunity to join the team arose, Sarah jumped at the chance and has been with Nashua Family Chiropractic since November 2017.

Outside of the office, Sarah enjoys riding and competing on her horse, Glori, as well as spending time with her family and her golden retriever, Penny.
