Jean Thompson, D.C.
Dr. Jean Thompson has been in chiropractic practice ten years after graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO in 1998. She also has her B.S. in Biology from Susquehanna University.
Besides Dr. Thompson's extensive credentials, most of her clinical expertise is from her own personal "healing journey". A jaw injury that was unhelped by traditional medical care led her to seek out a chiropractor for help. In just two visits, she was pain free and hooked on natural chiropractic care! In 2002, she was injured in a cycling accident resulting in 2 fractured vertebrae and a closed head injury. Doctors were stunned at her speedy recovery, thanks to chiropractic and cranial manipulation. This may be why two of Dr. Thompson's specialties are Jaw/TMJ relief and cranial manipulations for head injuries.
Dr. Thompson believes in treating the whole person with the goal of achieving a balance of three aspects of health. These aspects include: STRUCTURE, CHEMICAL, and MENTAL HEALTH. To achieve this method of treatment, Dr. Thompson uses SOT (Sacro Occipital Technique). This is a method of chiropractic that is effective in finding the cause of your symptoms, and to NOT just treat the symptoms. SOT is a gentle, holistic approach which includes: joint alignment, organ manipulation, cranial manipulation, extremity manipulation, and nutritional counseling.
Common conditions treated by SOT:
- TJM/Jaw Pain and/or clicking
- Hiatel Hernia
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Back Pain
- Headaches & Migraines
- Low Immune System
- Head Injuries & Concussions
- Learning Disabilities
- ADD & ADHD
- and more...
Dr. Thompson had a thriving private practice in Lakewood, CO for 5 years before relocating to Maryland in 2003. She is also the Anatomy and Physiology Instructor at the Massage Institute of Maryland and on the Board of Directors. She is a frequent lecturer on various health related topics and runs Health Retreats for women.

Cynthia Molina, Licensed Acupuncturist
Cynthia Molina is a licensed acupuncturist. She established her practice in 2008 and is the owner of Transformative Acupuncture, LLC in Columbia, MD. Cynthia holds her Master of Acupuncture Degree from Tai Sophia Institute in Laurel, MD. Throughout her coursework in the program, Cynthia became an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist and is a member of the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association. She also studied and practices Zero Balancing, a hands-on bodywork system designed to align your energy body with your physical structure. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. She implemented the knowledge she gained throughout her study of the mind and human behavior after graduation on a crisis intervention hotline.
Cynthia wanted to be able to do more for people than be a sounding board to the callers on the hotline. Her love of the body-mind connection led her to acupuncture. Based on her own experience in acupuncture, Cynthia enrolled at Tai Sophia. It was in the presence of her first acupuncturist that she was able to see how she had been living life up until that point as a victim and chose to turn things around and be at the cause of her life. Her transformation on a physical, emotional and spiritual level led to the awareness of the wisdom of her body. She attributes her improved well being and significant weight loss to acupuncture in conjunction with a regular running, yoga, and meditation practice.
