After taking a long trip across the United States she settled in the small mountain town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

After two years of chiropractic pre-requisites and eight years of skiing, hiking and biking she made the move to CT. After four years of intensive study, Dr. Flynn graduated suma cum laude from the University of Bridgeport to receive her Doctorate in Chiropractic. Dr. Flynn's interest in chiropractic began with her mother and grandmother. With a genetic predisposition to scoliosis, going to the chiropractor regularly was a family affair. Fortunately, she was always surrounded by healthy influences. Dr. Flynn credits her mother with 'being ahead of her time' and teaching the family healthy habits to last a lifetime.

Dr. Flynn specializes in treating pregnant women and helps them achieve a more comfortable and enjoyable pregnancy and delivery. She is certified in the Webster Technique. By using a combination of the many techniques she has accumulated through school and years of post graduate training classes, Dr. Flynn is able to restore imbalances that could have occurred as a result of prior injuries, chronic poor posture, carrying children, heavy bags, playing sports, sitting at a desk/computer, improper shoes, driving, pregnancy, etc.. Our bodies can become imbalanced with restricted joints and when these joints become restricted, there is lack of blood flow and nutrition to the joint. These restricted movements can cause excessive wear and degeneration to begin. Chiropractic adjustments restore proper movement and bio mechanics to spinal, pelvis, extremity and skull joints. Along with manual work, Dr. Flynn also educates her patients on ergonomic solutions, stretches, posture strengthening, nutritional support and small lifestyle changes that go a long way to promote long term healthy bodies.
