Bryan Kent, DC, L. Ac
Dr. Bryan Kent, is also is one of our chiropractors. Dr. Kent is a graduate of the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and holds a Masters of Science in Acupuncture in addition to his Doctor of Chiropractic.
A Rochester New York native, Dr. Bryan Kent is a 2016 graduate of New York Chiropractic College with highest honors. In addition to his doctor, Dr. Kent is a licensed Acupuncturist with a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. While in school Dr. Kent spent over 200 hours obtaining advanced certificates and training in Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.), myofascial decompression therapy, traditional Chinese fire cupping, ConnectX Instrument Assisted Myofascial Therapy, Myofascial Taping by Rock Tape, and Advanced Joint Manipulation with the Motional Palpation Institute to name a few.
As a practitioner, Dr. Kent believes that every person is an athlete. Whether racing marathons or triathlon, performing heavy deadlifts and deep squats, cycling through your daily vinyasa, going for walk with the pooch or picking up your kids for a hug, you’re an athlete because you move! That movement is the fundamental function of life and vitality. Dr. Kent’s mission is to have you moving at your most optimal level and to get you back to doing what you love, better than before you were treated.
Dr. Kent has a long history with movement and sports. While in high school he excelled as a runner but also on stage dancing and performing. During college Dr. Kent was a three-season varsity athlete racing Cross Country, and Indoor and Outdoor track. On the track he specialized in the 5,000 and 10,000 meter races with the occasional 1500 meter race if his coach was feeling extra spicy. After college Dr. Kent pursued a career as a professional triathlete racing for team USA triathlon at the amateur world Championships. After two years of hard training and racing, Dr. Kent ultimately missed his professional triathlon license narrowly and decided it was time to returned to his hometown to prepare for Chiropractic school.
While in California, Dr. Kent began using Crossfit as a way to get stronger for Triathlon. It wasn’t long before he was hooked and he has continued to develop a passion for body weight movement, kettle bells, olympic lifting, and of course good the old fashion Crossfit “WOD”. Dr. Kent views each day as an opportunity to move with increased proficiency regardless of what kind of movement that may be. Dr. Kent is currently preparing to return to racing triathlon and foot races after a 4 year “off season” during his professional education. He is looking forward to serving the communities he loves in Boston.

Meghan Meade, L.Ac., MAOM, MS PREP, CYT
Having suffered from anxiety, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, and exercise-induced repetitive stress injuries throughout her adolescence and twenties, Meghan first sought out acupuncture as a last ditch effort to salvage some semblance of health and sanity during a particularly stressful period in her life. It worked. Remarkably well. So palpable was the influence of acupuncture on her well being that she was compelled to leave a career in advertising to study Chinese medicine so that she could help others benefit from its effects.
Meghan earned her masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) and a masters degree in Pain Research, Education, and Policy from Tufts University Medical School. She is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine and is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
In her clinical practice Meghan integrates both Eastern and Western perspectives to provide treatments unique to each patient’s needs, and endeavors to empower patients to move forward on their paths to not just feeling good, but feeling like their true selves. In addition to her work as a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, Meghan serves as adjunct faculty at MCPHS and works as a yoga teacher and holistic health coach.
