Dr. Richelle KnowlesDr. Richelle Knowles is a well-known chiropractor here in Boulder and our local practice members can rely on her for compassionate and empathetic care here at Network Wellness Center. She began her impressive academic career at Duquesne University in Pennsylvania. Her deep commitment to entering the field of health care led her to pursue a degree in Pharmacology.

However, Dr. Richelle’s life changed dramatically when she learned about the theory, principles, and practice of chiropractic care and chose to leave behind her studies in pharmacology. She enrolled at Sherman College of Chiropractic and proved herself to be a student of remarkable ability. She was named Chiropractic Intern of the Month and represented Sherman College at the World Congress of Chiropractic Students before graduating with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. In 2011, Dr. Richelle was deeply honored to receive an appointment to the Colorado Board of Chiropractic Examiners from Governor John Hickenlooper and served a four-year term.

Drs. Richelle and Daniel Knowles, D.C. strongly believe that the key to good health lies within each and every one of us. All of the health professionals at Network Wellness Center are passionately dedicated to living a healthy, healing lifestyle and care for the welfare and long-term health of their practice members. They are active members of a number of Chiropractic organizations, including the Association of Reorganizational Healing Practitioners, the Colorado Chiropractic Association, and the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations.

Drs. Knowles both also work to train other doctors in clinical practice. Additionally, these doctors dedicate a lot of their time to speaking with interested organizations and groups about the benefits of chiropractic in promoting a healing, healthy lifestyle as well as training doctors around the world.

Dr. Patrick MartensDr. Martens has wanted to help people his entire life, and he’s proud to have found exactly that as a chiropractor. He graduated from Life West College of Chiropractic in the Bay Area after completing his undergraduate degree in Berkley.

While in college, Dr. Martens experienced a highly stressful period that affected him emotionally, physically and mentally. During that time, he was under traditional chiropractic care, but found it wasn’t helping him get back to living the life he loved so much.

Eventually, he found Network Wellness Center and instantly fell in love with the idea and science-backed technique. After undergoing care for about a month, he felt an immense weight lifted off of his shoulder, and he was able to get back to his happy, traditional self–or as he puts it–even better than he was before!

Optimizing Your Present Moment

Ever since his firsthand experience with Network Wellness Center, he knew this is what he wanted to do. Every day at the practice, he enjoys helping practice members of all walks of life restore function and vitality to their lives, naturally. “When it comes to my practice members, I’ll meet them where they are on their journey to health and help them get to where they want to be.”

Outside of the Practice

When he isn’t changing lives in the practice, Dr. Martens enjoys spending time in nature and going on outdoor adventures with his wife. The couple are new to the Boulder area, but loving every minute of it. When he has the time, he loves creating music, whether it’s sitting at the piano or putting together digital compositions via Garage Band. Dr. Martens is also dabbling in the podcast world and looks forward to releasing upcoming content.

Get to know more about him when you book a visit with us–he can’t wait to welcome you to the practice and get to know more about you.
