Eat healthy, stay active, sleep well, breathe deeply and......LOVE LIFE!


 I just want to introduce myself, my name is Leah Hood. To start off I'll give a little   background information about myself. My family has lived within the Manchester area for   the past 45 years. I grew up here and love the small town feel. I graduated from West   Delaware and went to Clark University for my undergraduate degree of, Bachelor of Science   in Biology. I got my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa. I   married Chad Hood, a Manchester, Iowa native as well on March 1, 2014. I am loving every   moment of married life. We have a beautiful little girl named McKenna! She is a little   stinker, but I love every moment and memory!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for   our family!

 Lifetime Chiropractic will remain to strive and help every patient that walks through our   doors. Your health care is our primary focus. Chiropractic care is a form of care that focuses   on patient wellness for all ages. I will strive to help you reach your highest potential.

 I will use the techniques included within the Palmer Package. A huge benefit to Chiropractic   is ART ( Active Release Technique) which is a muscle release technique. I am full body   certified in ART. Please do not hesitate to call the clinic or email for additional information.

Lisa Gudenkauf, Licensed Massage Therapist

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2004 and am a graduate of Carlson College of Massage Therapy. For nearly 15 years, I have practiced massage in my own private practice. I joined the Lifetime Chiropractic team in June of 2018. My husband Terry and I, along with our 5 children, live south of Manchester. I love to share my passion of health and wellness with my clients as a Massage Therapist, and continuing my knowledge as an Integrative Health Coach allows me to help my clients live a healthier life through holistic methods.
When I'm not busy helping with my husband’s business and kids schedules, I enjoy running and working out, as well as spending time with family and friends.
