Dr. Leah Hahn
Dr. Leah Hahn grew up in Minnesota and watched her mother suffer with severe illness for years while receiving little help from the medical profession. Finally her mother found a Chiropractor that helped her achieve health and healing through chiropractic care and nutrition. After these experiences, Dr. Leah knew that she had found her passion and wanted to dedicate her time and energy to helping others in a holistic and natural form of healing.
This inspiration led Dr. Leah’s pursuit to help people achieve abundant health. She attended Cornell College and received her degree in Biology and Anthropology. Her next pursuit was Northwestern Health Sciences University for postgraduate studies. At NWHSU she completed her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, and additionally specialized in Network Spinal Analysis and Functional Medicine.
Dr. Scott Hahn
Dr. Scott Hahn grew up in northern Minnesota, near the Canadian border. Living in an incredibly beautiful part of the country, he was able to take advantage of the outdoors. Dr. Scott grew up as an outdoor enthusiast and also excelled in multiple sports. After severely injuring his shoulder in football, it was chiropractic that finally allowed him to become active again.
It was his personal story of healing that inspired Dr. Scott to attend chiropractic school. He attended University of Minnesota Duluth before pursuing his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University. He met Dr. Leah during the first week of chiropractic school. Dr. Leah and Dr. Scott share a similar passion for providing natural health and wellness for families. Together, they attended hundreds of hours of seminars to gain Certification in Network Spinal Analysis, Health and Wellness, Nutrition, Public Outreach and a Certification in Pediatrics.

Dr. Miriam continues to be a student, diving deep into Vedic Sciences, Neuro-Emotional health, and Functional Neurology to deepen the understanding of her craft and her role in the fabric of life.
Dr. Miriam’s first exposure to chiropractic began in 2001 when she started experiencing symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. The chiropractic philosophy and the mind-body awareness that developed as a result of continuous chiropractic care set the stage for Dr. Miriam’s spiritual journey inward. Her passion is to empower those to be in alignment with their highest truth by helping people discover freedom in their bodies. All of the wisdom and presence is held in the body and to learn how to develop honor and reverence to feel your story is what she believes to be a beautiful path.
An avid traveler, Dr. Miriam’s first experience of service took place in Afghanistan, educating children in orphanages. Upon graduation, she traveled for 8.5 months in India, Nepal, and Indonesia participating in chiropractic service trips and temporary clinics.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Miriam is certified as a Kundalini Yoga Instructor and enjoys dancing, cooking healthy foods, reading, running around in nature, and deep belly laughter. Her hometown is in Fremont, California and she is excited to meet her soul family here in Colorado!
