Doctor Knippa is continually inspired by Chiropractic, Oriental Medicine and facilitating the healing processes of the body. She believes it to be her calling in life. She is the mother to a sweet, funny, active, brilliant, and healthy 4-year-old boy, who consistently reminds her to appreciate every moment. She loves working with her patients and helping them discover a new level of wellness. Dr. Knippa finds great joy in witnessing the healing that occurs in her office. Her goal is to guide each patient on their personal journey to obtain optimal wellness while helping them discover their truth, and find new ways to understand and rearrange their health puzzle.

In 1996, she graduated from Menlo College in Atherton, CA with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems. In 1998, while working for FedEx as a LAN admin in Colorado Springs, CO, she experienced serious health issues. This experience quickly spiraled Dr. Knippa towards her calling, an amazing adventure and continual journey in the pursuit of finding universal truths that include the root causes in the impedance of the individual’s health and wellness.

Dr. Knippa graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2005 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic and a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

In September of 2005, She moved from Southern California to Corpus Christi, TX for an amazing opportunity to train with her mentor and best friend. She fully took over the practice in 2007 and added two more phenomenal chiropractors to help her mission to better serve the south texas community. Dr. Knippa has fervently spent hundreds of hours in postgraduate education courses studying and researching the true causes of disease. She has trained in numerous cutting edge techniques: Applied Kinesiology; Brimhall Wellness; Neuro-Emotional Technique; Total Body Modification; Nutritional counseling; functional blood chemistry; epigenetics /nutrigenomics; Longevity, aging and wellness; brain injury, trauma, and healing; Autism and spectrum disorders; and has currently begun her studies in Quantum Neurology.

Dr. Knippa is grateful for the opportunity to not only help patients, but help other Doctors.


Dr.Kristin Knowlton was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. From a young age she was drawn towards the path of healing, initially beginning school with the mindset of becoming a medical doctor. Her journey took her to several colleges: Del Mar College, Baylor University, and Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. However, as time passed she found her education leading her away from Western medicine and towards a more natural and holistic approach. She graduated with her B.S. in Human Anatomy in 2012 and Doctor of Chiropractic in 2014 from Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Texas.

Since graduation she has trained in numerous techniques such as Pre-natal adjusting, Infant adjusting, Nutritional counseling, Applied Kinesiology, Neuro-Emotional Technique, Acupuncture, Therapeutic AcroYoga, and Thai Massage.

Dr. Knowlton’s desire is to change the lives of patients and persons in the community through education of the importance of active lifestyle and proactive health care. She will continue to gain knowledge in her profession as well as remaining current with the research in other health fields in order to impart that information on patients, to ultimately help build a more health conscious and empowered community.


Dr. Michael Prioux loves learning about the truly amazing abilities of the human body. That fascination is what inspired him to choose the chiropractic profession to help others find healing. His quest for acquiring knowledge about the human body is a passion that does not stop. He genuinely enjoys interacting with patients in the office.

Dr. Prioux hails originally from the southeast Texas city of Groves, inside the "Golden Triangle." He spent 6 years in the U.S. Marines as an avionics technician while taking undergrad classes for chiropractic college. He is a proud graduate from Texas Chiropractic College, completing his degree in August of 2001.

His time at TCC brought him in touch with Dr. John Brimhall which some people have called the "Father of Wellness." And after graduating Dr. Prioux spent several years assisting Dr. Brimhall lecture/teach across the U.S. Coincidentally, that is how Dr. Prioux met Dr. Knippa.

Dr. Prioux has read books and taken hundreds of hours on post-grad education. Keying on the areas of nutrition, body chemistry, detoxification, and functional medicine have led to the motto: "Put the good stuff in, take the bad stuff out, and give the body time." Dr. Prioux's post grad certifications include Acupuncture, Brimhall Wellness, Manipulation Under Anesthesia, Certified Clinical Nutrition, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists.
