Business Manager Jeanette Sosa
My passion for Chiropractic started when my husband, Dr. Michael Sosa, and I moved to Georgia and he attended Life Chiropractic University in 1988. The truth and principle of Chiropractic is our way of life. God put a perfect healing system in our bodies called our Nervous System and as long as there is no interference we can express our God given talents and potential to live His amazing journey. Michael and I are blessed to have 3 amazing girls born at home with a midwife. Our girls nervous system were checked within minutes of birth and have been brought up with God’s amazing principle of Above, Down, Inside, Out. Our daughters born in 1991, 1993, and 1999 have all worked in the family practice and all express desires to continue in preventive healthcare. We look forward to the day a second generation of Sosa chiropractors are serving our community. I love seeing our patients become proactive in their healthcare. Their trust in God’s amazing healing ability shines through when they bring in their kids to get adjusted and see symptoms disappear. Eyes are opened to a healthier lifestyle including adjustments, clean eating, removing toxins, and exercising. We have been serving and loving our Tampa Bay community since 1991 and are amazed by the blessings we receive from our families. Come meet our amazing staff who share in our passion for chiropractic and bring joy to me with their serving hearts.
