Meet the Doctors

Dr. Melissa Blanchard (Agnew)

Dr. MelissaDr. Mel grew up in Onamia, Minnesota and was active in high school and college, participating in track and cross country. She majored in exercise science at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. While there, she was a three-time NCAA Division II National Champion and a 12-time All-American.

Seeking a health care profession that took a holistic approach, Dr. Mel discovered that chiropractic was a perfect fit. She attended Northwestern Health Sciences University where she learned about treating the cause of an injury or condition rather than masking symptoms as so many medications do.

During her internship, she saw firsthand the effects chiropractic care had on her patients and became excited to open her own practice. At Imperial Family Chiropractic, Dr. Mel often sees active individuals and athletes. She is certified in Graston and Rock Tape®.

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Mel stays busy with the Twin Cities Track Club. She runs on the weekends and enjoys checking out area restaurants and breweries.

Linsey is a therapeutically based therapist, meaning she listens to the clients needs and together with the client forms a plan to achieve each individuals goals.

KC dall’Amore, DCM, L. Ac

After working in corporate finance and accounting, KC chose a much more satisfying (for her) career path – Chinese Medicine. KC’s heritage lies in service of helping to heal using Chinese Medicine through her southern Chinese and Taiwanese lineage and current family members who heal using QiGong and other Chinese Medicine modalities. KC followed in the footsteps of her family healers and graduated with a Master of Acupuncture and a Doctorate of Chinese Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota.

KC offers acupuncture, TuiNa, fire cupping, GuaSha, and enjoys the challenge of prescribing herbal formulas.

KC loves playing broomball and says that Minnesota winters have passed much quicker after she began playing. KC also enjoys rock climbing, camping, traveling, foreign languages, writing, learning, and spending time in nature.
