Dr. Kim Beecher received her doctor of chiropractic degree in 1989 from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West where she graduated magna cum laude. Although she loved her prior career teaching in junior and senior high schools in Santa Cruz, she wanted a profession where she could combine her love for people, her scientific background, and working with her hands. She also continued teaching for another ten years, this time college-level human anatomy.
In addition, Kim continues to teach nationally and internationally as a yoga teacher. She is a senior-level TriYoga teacher trainer at TriYoga Center Santa Cruz. Since 1986, she has been a student of Kali Ray (Yogini Kaliji), the founder of TriYoga.
Dr. Beecher has a bachelor of science degree with a major in biology from Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts and a master’s degree in education from Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. She is also a certified massage therapist.
Since 1996 I have suffered from a lower back injury, manifesting in a constant dull ache and back going completely out every 10-14 months, rendering me inactive for a couple of days each time...Dr Beecher started treating me in early 2016 and since then my back has never gone out and I have had pain free months (7 consecutive) never experienced since original injury! Thank you, Kim! Grateful for your healing.
After my son was born and I had been breastfeeding for a while, I developed great pain in the soles of my feet. I didn't feel it during the day, but when I got up after resting, e.g. in the morning or when I'd get up at night to get the crying baby, I almost couldn't walk. Being 31, I'd hobble down the stairs like an 80-year-old. Luckily this state only lasted about 5 to 10 minutes or so, if I kept walking even though it was painful. At first I didn't think it could have anything to do with pregancy at all. But when I googled "foot pain after sleep", I found various entries in parenting-forums where new mums wrote exactly about my problem and were asking for advice. I tried wearing all kinds of special shoes (from "barefoot-technique" to "extra-soft footbed"), got foot massages ... In the forums I learned that through pregnancy and lactation hormones the soft tissues in new mum's feet relax sometimes a little too much so the bones in the foot might become misaligned. Kim Beecher, D.C., finally cured my foot pain "simply" by realigning the bones in my feet. The treatment took about half an hour and my feet felt just so light right after that my hopes were very high for the next morning. And I definitely wasn't disappointed: the pain was gone completely!
A Very Special Friend
Kim R. Beecher D.C.
I have a very special friend
Who's helped in many ways
With healing hands and happy smile
To brighten up my days
She has this tranquil presence

Or a gentle ocean breeze
She is that pure and shining light
That brightens many hearts

Which sets her so apart
She is a motivator
With a positive attitude
Inspiring health and happiness
With the love that she exudes
And so I bless the day I met
My chiropractic friend
Who brings a zest for living
With loving healing hands
I want you to know that the adjustment was fabulous. My elbow stopped hurting right away. I was sure it was a bruise that would take weeks to heel. Instantly it stopped hurting. Thank you so much for all you do. I'm so grateful to have you in my life.
Marshall called tonight and said that his feet feel great.....he cannot believe it, but is totally thrilled. Thank you so much for taking care of the pain....and establishing balance!
Thank you for the healing. Thank you very much for the divine healing touch with your magical instrument. I am feeling a lot better and looking forward to the next session.
I felt quite sore when I left your office. I drove home and put heat on my back then slept for about an hour or so. Since then I have been doing many tasks virtually pain free. It’s as if I worked out strenuously and made my back muscles work extra hard; so there is a bit of stiffness, but there is not the immobility and extreme pain that I had. Thank you so much for helping me. I will definitely be in on Thursday again.
My right shoulder had again been bothering me for the last month or so, and the pain had been increasing. I briefly mentioned it and Kim said “Let me look at it". She briefly felt my shoulder and said my posture was wrong and shoulder blade needs a little help. She made the correction. Over the last one hour, I can not express in words how beautiful the feeling is and how refreshing the shoulder is. Kim mentioned, “Hope you feel better, and hope it lasts". Thank you so much for the warmth and care and the gentle touch you gave.
I always think of you feeling much love and warmth in my heart to you. As for me I'm doing fine. By the way, my wrist doesn't hurt at all!!! You did save me. No one could, but you got rid of the pain that tortured me many many years since childhood! Endless gratefulness.
Nothing has had the effect of your treatment. I suspect you combine the chiro with healing practices. You are so good that I would take a trip to wherever you are to have another of your treatments!
You are the only person in 20 years who has been able to make the shoulder feel pain free! Some people are just healers, I guess.
I want to thank you so much for fixing me up last night. You are so wonderful and I awoke this morning feeling completely healed. I just can't believe it. No pain, no discomfort. You are the angel of chiropractic care and I'm so grateful to have you as my neighbor, friend and healer!!!
Kim, I am feeling SOOO much better today! Energy-wise, in addition to no back pain, and standing up straight, and feeling quite normal. Thank you so very much! You worked your magic.
