About Kate and Jason 

Originally from Peabody, MA, Jason is a recent graduate of New York Chiropractic College. He completed his clinical chiropractic training at Bay Pines VA hospital in Florida. Prior to attending NYCC, he completed his undergraduate degree at UMass Amherst where he was a member of the men’s rugby club and later became a licensed massage therapist through The Massage School of Easthampton. He is passionate about empowering patients to achieve active goals and reduce pain in as few visits as possible. His treatments are custom tailored to fit each patient’s unique needs and often combine targeted soft tissue work, adjustments and rehabilitative exercise. Jason is thrilled to join the team at AFP as chiropractor and is looking forward to calling the Pioneer Valley home once again.
