Dr. Denise D’Harlingue


My dad got wonderful results from chiropractic care after suffering a stroke (possibly medication induced) at age 38. My mom got great results for her tail bone pain after a slip and fall on ice. But I really didn’t “get it”, that is, really understand the scope of what chiropractic could do until one treatment by a chiropractor, cleared up a troublesome “female problem” that I had suffered with for over five years.

My first chiropractor was a student, who was introduced to me by my neighbors. I became his patient in the college student clinic. I asked him so many questions that he suggested I attend chiropractic college to have them all answered. As luck would have it, Logan Chiropractic College, considered to be one of the top three chiropractic colleges in the world was located in my home town of St. Louis, Mo.

A Chiropractic Education

My first day of chiropractic college was quite memorable. Dr. Bea Hagen, college president spoke to the incoming students. She told of treating newborns with skulls disfigured from difficult births, remodeled through gentle chiropractic methods. She also spoke of the “old days” when she and other chiropractors went to jail for fighting for their rights to practice chiropractic in upstate New York. To be among the ranks of those that changed people’s lives for the better, facilitating positive changes without the ill “side effects” of medications and surgery, made that first day at Logan one of the proudest days of my life.

While in school, I worked at the offices of Dr Bert Hanicke and Dr Katherine Conable, both diplomats in Applied Kinesiology. As kinesiologists, Drs. Hanicke and Conable put a great deal of emphasis on patient function through muscle balancing and nutrition. The nutrition was of particular interest to me, as my dad’s health problems basically started with poor diet.

On a Personal Note…

Dr. Denise has been married to Mike, the “car aficionado” for thirty years. It was Mike’s job that brought her to Houston and keeps her supplied in frequent flyer miles and Marriott points. At her home, a heart beat from a bayou, she has a totally organic lawn and garden which keeps her busy chasing, trapping and observing possum, raccoons, armadillos and coyotes. Her bright, beautiful twenty something daughter, Michelle, seems to be following in one of her mom’s other avocations; artistic endeavors.

Being from the Midwest with four seasons, Houston weather has always been a bit of a challenge, but the warmth of the people here more than makes up for the climate. Our bayou location makes it easy for us to exercise on the paved trail in the early morning or evenings. We make Saturday trips to the local farmer’s markets to shop for organic foods. Patent’s often ask who adjusts me. I see one of my colleagues once or twice per month for regular spinal adjustments so that I can be all that I was meant to be and am always able and ready to give you my best on each visit.

Enough about me! How can we help you to be all you were meant to be with today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? Give our West Houston office a call so we can help you take your first step towards better health.
