Meet the Doctor
Dr. Jeanine Wolf-RichterPresident
Hello! My name is Dr. Jeanine Wolf-Richter.
Welcome to your wellness journey! I look forward to helping you!
I have been in practice in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years. I began Wolf Chiropractic out of my home in 1993 working from 6:30 - 8:30a.m and again from 6:30-9:30 pm while also working at a clinic in Lakewood. I built my own chiropractic table and eventually added an x-ray machine. Over the last 25 years my practice has grown to help thousands of people in Federal Way and surrounding areas, and has been 'home' from the day I moved here from the Midwest.
I am a mother to a wonderful son, a wife, a die-hard Seahawks fan, love golfing and am passionate about helping my patients feel and look their best.
I began my chiropractic journey when my mother was suffering from debilitating migraine headaches. She couldn’t tolerate any light or sound, I couldn’t even whisper to her. It was difficult to see my mom in so much pain, I felt helpless. I was desperate to help her so I would spend hours massaging her back, but it wasn’t until she sought chiropractic care that she found relief. Her headaches completely went away; her response to chiropractic was absolutely amazing. After seeing my mom’s results I knew I wanted to pursue a life in chiropractic.
In June of 2016, I also opened a company called Ideal Body Image NW Health Spa, which focuses on non-invasive, all natural body treatments, all-natural and organic skincare, weight loss, red light therapy and an infrared sauna. Since your skin is the largest organ of you body, I believe what you put 'on' your skin is as important as what you put in your body. We treat the whole person.
In the past two years, I have also been studying functional medicine. Statistically, as I see the health of my patients declining from various conditions I have become more passionate about treating my patients entire body to get to the root of their health problems by providing an 'True Cellular Detoxification' program that removes toxic chemicals and heavy metals from their body.
I attended my undergraduate studies at North Dakota State School of Science. Once I completed my undergraduate degree I went on to receive a Chiropractic Technician Degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic. After five years of working at various chiropractic offices, I went on to Northwestern College of Chiropractic to receive my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree and graduated in 1991.
Since graduating I have made it my mission to improve the lives of others and have continued my education in spinal trauma, spinal decompression, whiplash, neurology, functional medicine and natural health and healing.
At the age of 2, my son was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder and severe learning disabilities, which has inspired me to learn ways to help children 'on the spectrum' and help parent's deal with the challenges associated with this disease. My quest to learn about this condition lead me to further my continuing education with hopes of finding answers.
I completed a Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology, which is beneficial for all patients, since chiropractic has a direct influence on the nervous system.
Most recently I have been studying and applying 'True Cellular Detox' to help patients who are on the spectrum. It is also extremely beneficial for those with chronic inflammation which can eventually lead to many autoimmune diseases, thyroid issues, weight resistance and overall ill health.
I have also received certification in Whiplash & Spinal Trauma, Cox Disc Decompression, True Cellular Detox, and Ideal Protein Weight Loss.
