Chiropractor in Lynnwood WA | Call 425-775-9914
Dr. Misty R. Gargan, DC

Dr. Misty Gargan first got under chiropractic care after hurting her neck playing tennis at Lynnwood Highschool. "Chiropractic care helped restore balance to my spine & nervous system, which allowed me to not miss a single match & achieve a varsity letter as a freshman!"

Dr. Misty still gets adjusted once a week or every other week to keep her immune system strong, to help her keep up with her nephews, and to keep her tuned-up for weekend rock climbing, hiking, and backpacking adventures. She is very passionate about healthy food and eating habits.

Dr. Misty has focused her post graduate education on pre-natal care, gentle instrument adjusting techniques, and nutrition. She specializes in pregnancy care and auto injuries. She has helped dozens of women have more comfortable and successfull pre-natal experiences.


Lead Chiropractor

Dr. Andrew Shannahan, DC

Dr. Shannahan was inspired to become a chiropractor way back in elementary school. "My best friend's dad was a chiropractor, so at an early age I was exposed to the chiropractic lifestyle. I was intrigued by their family's healthy habits (like avoiding sweets, always taking their vitamins, and not taking medications). Since then, I've learned a lot about why chiropractic is a unique form of healthcare, and I've become a total health nut. I hope that you'll be excited about our different approach!"

Dr. Shannahan still gets adjustments once a week to keep his nervous system free of interference, and to stay connected to his favorite activities like rock climbing, strength training, hiking, and backpacking. He is most passionate about rock climbing and boulders in the gym twice a week and gets outside whenever he can.

His post graduate education has focused on nutrition, rehab exercises, Biophysics technique, and strength training. He loves to work with weekend athletes.

Clinic Director

Ashley Gallagher, LMT

Ashley has been a Massage Therapist since 2006. After graduating with honors from Ashmead School of Massage in Everett, she has primarily worked in cooperatives and multi-practitioner massage clinics focusing on acute injury and pregnancy care. Most recently she worked in a large spa where she learned the ins-and-outs of five-star customer service and decadent relaxation techniques.

She has worked with a lot of athletes, ranging from recreational golfers to competitive hockey players. She believes that “No body is the same twice, so massage should be constantly changing with it”.  Her massage style is adaptable to YOUR needs and pressure tolerance. She gives a deeply relaxing, but firm, treatment massage.

She enjoys working on the neck, jaw, facial, and scalp to help alleviate headaches and migraine pain. She has worked with a lot of people who suffer from migraines and headaches. She uses trigger point therapy, range-of-motion / stretching, myofascial release, and lymphatic drainage techniques to help improve her patient’s health and relieve their pain.

Last but not least, she has worked with many Moms-to-be in every single stage of pregnancy and loves addressing the changing needs that occur at each stage and how different this is for every woman. She has worked with children from ages 7 and up, most of those being athletes or students who are overwhelmed with the academic and social aspects of daily life.


Masssage Therapist Lynnwood

Massage Therapist

Leslie Flynn - Billing CA

Leslie grew up near the sunny California coastline where she developed a fondness for the beach and the calming sounds of the water. Growing up with many brothers (6) in a “sports kind of family”, Leslie says she’s a bit of a tomboy.  Family fun often included playing baseball or football as well as camping and fishing.  Her favorite sports are baseball (go Dodgers!) and football (go Green Bay!).  As the oldest of eight siblings, Leslie sometimes had to take on the role of “caretaker” and “peacemaker”, both good qualities for her position at Summit Family.

Gardening is one of her interests when she’s not at work.  She likes to plant flowers and is eager to learn more about the intricacies of gardening.  She also reads a lot.  She likes authors James Patterson & Vince Flynn.

Leslie would love to travel to Ireland one day.  Her family is Irish, so she’d like to learn more about her Irish roots by traveling the country.  At home she would like to do more volunteer work, especially something that helps homeless or underprivileged children.  She’s also interested in learning the Filipino language.  One of her 4 nieces is part Filipino.

Leslie has over 10 years of experience as a Chiropractic Assistant and absolutely loves helping people and hearing patient’s success stories with gentle chiropractic care and massage.

Her own chiropractic story began one day when she woke up with back pain. Coincidentally, she was also looking for a new job at the time and happened to find a chiropractic office that was hiring.  She called the office to make an appointment for a new patient exam AND to ask for an interview.  She got the job and an exam that same day!

Her favorite part of being a chiropractic patient is how she feels after an adjustment, more energized and like her body is working better.

Leslie has two cats, Tux and Cliff.
