As a 2009 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic West, Dr. Young has focused her continuing education over the years on pediatrics and women’s health. She is trained in a wide variety of techniques to help people of all ages address many different health concerns. She is nearing completion of becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

She is also able to broaden her scope by offering a nutritional approach to many conditions like the common cold, allergies, pain management, sleep and digestive issues. Dr. Young is also a member of the Washington State Chiropractic Association, American Chiropractic Association and American Chiropractic Associations Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics where she currently volunteers as the Research Chair helping to promote contributions to research and advancements in Pediatric Chiropractic.
Dr. Amanda Kugel
I became part of Olympia, Washington community in 2012, after moving from my home town near Green Bay, Wisconsin. Prior to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic, I worked for four years as a nutrition counselor with the Women and Children (WIC) Program in Wisconsin. While there I developed a passion for helping individuals in the perinatal process, babies, and children.
This passion followed me to chiropractic school. After graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2012, I completed an additional certification program as a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) to further my skills working with individuals throughout the pregnancy process, and for infants and children in my chiropractic office.
I am certified in the Webster Technique, a gentle method used during pregnancy to help align the mother’s pelvis for her own comfort and to potentially improve room for the baby to develop. In addition to standard manual techniques taught by Palmer College of Chiropractic, I have training in the Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT), Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and Kinesiology Taping. I enjoy using these gentle techniques for patient comfort and to support muscle and connective tissue causes of movement disorders.
