Chiropractic Helped My Asthma

Dr. Johanna Hartley

Growing up, Dr. Johanna had asthma, always feeling like the kid that was endlessly sick. Looking for relief, she was led in the right direction. With a mother that was a massage therapist working in a chiropractic office, she started getting adjusted without knowing too much about chiropractic care. A pleasant surprise happened when her asthma started to improve through care!

Getting off of Medications

“Over the next couple of years, I didn’t have to be dependent on medication anymore. I could be active and participate in sports like I’d always wanted to.” Dr. Johanna’s experience with chiropractic was so life-changing that she knew at a young age that she wanted to be a chiropractor.

I wanted to help people change their health and lifestyle, naturally. Just like I didn’t want to be dependent on medications, neither should they.

Focusing on Corrective and Wellness Care

Dr. Johanna attended Lynchburg College in Virginia for her undergraduate education before attaining her Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL. Because Dr. Johanna knew she was relocating to the area, she aligned herself with Dr. Hartley as she knew of her great reputation of care in the community. She wanted to work with someone who practiced with the same passion for helping families. With a similar philosophy and passion to help build a stronger community, the two team together to offer outstanding, well-rounded care.

Enjoying the Beach and Family Time

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Johanna likes to be active! She enjoys being outside in the sun and spending time with her friends, family and her dogs. Dr Johanna likes many fitness classes in the area, attends the downtown market often, and takes advantage of local St. Petersburg and Clearwater events.

Dr. Johanna moved to St. Petersburg in 2015. She was eager to start practicing with Dr. Theresa Hartley. So when Dr. Johanna and Dr. Theresa’s brother Peter met they hit it off! Dr. Johanna and Peter Hartley, Dr. Theresa Hartley’s brother, got married on September 2nd, 2017. Now we can truly say we are a family practice inside and out.
