Dr. Lauren Penn | Chiropractor Care
Lauren Penn has been healing people for more than twenty-five years. She was born with an innate gift to quickly discern the root cause of a person’s ailments and devise an effective plan of care to cure and restore them. Today, as a Doctor of Chiropractic and Holistic Healthcare Practitioner, she continues her life’s purpose through her private practice, Pinpoint Chiropractic and Wellness, located at 3608 Galley Road in Colorado Springs.
Dr. Penn’s journey as a physician began out of necessity to establish steady employment independent of corporatized healthcare. And to acquire freedom as a single mother to readily parent her son, who suffered from asthma and eczema. Yet, doctoring by far wasn’t Lauren’s initial objective:
“It was a fluke. I never wanted to be a doctor, but the doors for nursing were closing for me. I’d applied to the University of Arlington and had been on their waiting list for 2 ½ years. I worked for a hospital that said it would pay for my nursing school. However, when the time came, the Director of Surgery refused to sign off on my schooling because he felt no one liked me.”
Nevertheless, her employer’s refusal to pay was a powerful motivator for intense self-reflection, which doubly served to extract her strengths. During her tenure, she’d developed a special soap for her son’s skin disorder, which became useful to others with similar conditions. As well, she’d successfully treated a man with shingles using her own blend of essential oils. Likewise, a woman with a severe case of painful sinus and inflammation issues was cured of her ailments when Dr. Penn administered a parasite cleanse, that consisted of applying a substance called Paragon by way of drops on the tongue. That patient hasn’t suffered sinus issues since.
“The thing is, I never volunteered my services or expertise. Those I treated came into my care during casual encounters or happenstance. So, I never considered holistic healing as a career.”
Dr. Penn recalls 2012 as being her hardest year in corporate healthcare. She was a surgical technologist at a hospital in Texas, where she’d gotten written up for a complaint she wasn’t allowed to rebut. That day she emptied her locker in preparation to immediately depart the building if they were to fire her. It took another year, but ultimately, she was unjustly terminated:
“The staff had been following me around, trying to get me fired. Eventually, they succeeded by blaming me for incidents that weren’t my fault. By the time they succeeded, I had already been accepted to Chiropractic School.”
Lauren graduated from Parker University in 2017, with a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree. After successfully passing all her boards, she opened her first private practice, Temple & Penn Chiropractic in Dallas. She attained several regular patients who sustained the practice for a year before her decision to relocate to Colorado.
Upon arriving in the Home of the Rocky Mountains in 2019, she met Claudine Malcolm, a local business owner who provided her a space to open her new practice. To date, the talented doctor and therapist has made waves amid the urban and homeopathic communities and shows no signs of slowing down. Future aspirations for Dr. Penn include expanding the size of her practice to accommodate her growing client base and continuing to formulate effective treatment plans through environmental remedies.
