Loree Pinnavaia, DC, FAFS, Clinical Director
Dr. Loree Pinnavaia, Doctor of Chiropractic and Functional Medicine Practitioner, is passionate about helping individuals who are looking for a smarter approach to achieve wellness, are motivated to get to the bottom of their health issues, and are looking for a sustainable life-long strategy for optimum health. Partnering with her patients, she utilizes the most effective, natural, and science-backed methods in clinical nutrition and Functional/Lifestyle Medicine to restore health. Her quest was sparked by facing her youngest daughter’s struggle with a chronic neurodevelopmental disorder. After seeking answers from conventional doctors, she discovered solutions for her daughter by pouring through scientific literature and pursuing experts abreast of current science. Surprisingly, these new and effective therapies remain far from what is prescribed in mainstream clinical practice and sadly out-of-reach to the average patient. She saw how a new healthcare paradigm -one that is centered around the patient’s bio-individuality and the most current therapies -could transform both our longevity and quality of life. This began her quest to close the gap between the outdated, failing approach to chronic illness and new scientific methods for whole body healing.
With a postgraduate degree in chiropractic orthopedics, Loree founded Equilibrio Body in 2004. Equilibrio Body is a positive community-based studio providing anti-aging fitness through Pilates and Physical Therapy. Equilibrio Body provides permanent resolutions to orthopedic issues through a safe and fun way to physically transform yourself.
Loree then founded Equilibrio Health as part of her own personal transformation. Initially inspired by her daughter’s successful journey, Loree began to explore Functional and Lifestyle Medicine. Today it has dramatically changed her life as well as the lives of those patients she serves. She spent over one thousand hours of continuing education with the Institute for Functional Medicine, Functional Medicine University and studied under pioneers such as Dr. Datis Kharrazian and Dr. Brandon Brock. Loree’s clinical applications in brain health are founded upon the work of Dr. Dale Bredesen. Today, the teams at Equilibrio Health and Equilibrio Body, provide a comprehensive and complete transformational wellness experience.
Loree uses her knowledge and experience to create a lasting therapeutic partnership with patients because she realizes poor health can cause physical and emotional stress, shorter lifespan and can become the gateway to the chronic diseases that more than 50% of us suffer from today. She believes that truly excellent health is sustainable and that it leads to succeeding in our life goals well into our later years.
