Dr. Harmony Dawson's chiropractic career started right here in Marshall on G. Drive after a run-in with a patch of black ice. After an ambulance ride to the Oaklawn Emergency Room, she was released with severe back and neck pain. After a couple of weeks of not being able to stand or walk without assistance, her medical doctor here in town told her to go to a chiropractor. The chiropractor noticed on her X-Rays that she had small fractures on two of her vertebra and her spine was severely misaligned. Thankfully it was something he could treat. A few adjustments later, she began walking straight again and was able to start to kick around a soccer ball. It was that moment, Dr. Dawson decided to become a Chiropractor.
She attended E.M.U. and then on to M.S.U. and finished with a B.A. in Human Biology. Dr. Harmony then enrolled at the prestigious Logan College of Chiropractic, graduating as a doctor of chiropractic. Dr. Harmony met her husband, Dr. Brent Dawson, while at Logan College and they began two very successful practices in Lexington, KY where they employed 12 staff including 4 doctors, and two massage therapists.
In 2015, they bought a house in Marshall to renovate. After spending many long weekends here, the Dawsons knew that this is where they wanted to raise their kids. They love Marshall, the people, and being an active part of this wonderful community.
Both Drs. Dawson have helped thousands of patients are trained in multiple techniques and have treated all ages, from the 94 yr.+ men and women, to newborn babies, to the high school athletes.
