Dr. Samantha was born and raised in Portage, Michigan. Growing up, she always had a heightened curiosity for a healthy lifestyle and started off at Grand Valley State University working toward a physical therapy degree. Halfway through her program, she discovered chiropractic and its underlying principle that the body was made to heal itself. She knew this was exactly the profession she was called into, made the switch and headed down to Life University to get her doctor of chiropractic in Atlanta, Georgia.
Going down to Life University was a life-changing event. She was able to work through years of chronic strep throat, ear infections, weight issues, and female issues. She used to get severely sick four times a year and had to take NyQuil every night just to fall asleep. After regular chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle changes, Dr. Sam no longer gets sick every season, lost weight and female issues resolved. Along with restoring her health, she also met her husband, Dr. Brandon, down in chiropractic school. He somehow convinced a Michigan girl to marry an Ohio boy.
Fast forward a few years and the Shriner Doctors welcomed their first (of 3) baby boy Beckett into the world. Despite doing “all the right things” he was a super colicky baby and had A LOT of tummy issues.
Relying on the foundation that God doesn’t make babies or people to be sick and suffering their whole lives, they sought an answer. They discovered this is a common issue with parents and babies today, but knew it definitely wasn’t normal. After getting to the cause of baby Beckett’s health issues through metabolic testing and therapeutic supplementation, Dr. Samantha wanted to make sure no other babies and families had to suffer and be told this was a “normal baby thing, and to just deal with it until they grow out of it."
Being able to offer patients health and healing the way we live our lives, is one of the greatest blessings and joys Dr. Samantha has. We know in our hearts true healing comes from above, down, inside and out and getting to the cause of the problem is the best “treatment” we can give. She loves to be patient’s cheerleaders in their health journey and believes there is a cause for every health issue. If she doesn’t know the cause immediately, she will search until she finds it, learning and educating herself.
Outside of the office, Dr. Sam loves being a boy mom to Beckett, Zeke, Hendrix and their boxer Bo (who you occasionally see in the office). The whole family loves to be active and outside whenever possible and the boys especially like trying out the new healthy recipes mom makes. She loves disproving the myth that eating healthy doesn’t taste good.
Dr. Stephanie Mahaney, PharmD & ABAAHP
Stephanie Mahaney was born and raised in Akron, OH. She attended Ohio Northern University where she received her Doctor of Pharmacy. During her time at ONU, she ALMOST switched majors to biochemistry or nutrition because she was fascinated by how vitamins and nutrients affected how our bodies functioned. This passion for true health and proper nutrition led Stephanie to join the Revive team.
Stephanie was a chiropractic patient at Revive Chiropractic since they first opened and despite the best chiropractic care and improved diet, she still struggled with some chronic health issues. When Revive started their Metabolix program Stephanie was intrigued and jumped on board to get tested. It was through the Metabolix program that Stephanie was able to address the root cause of her health issues and find healing. This led Stephanie to want to learn more and she eventually was able to join Dr. Sam in running the Metabolix Program.
Stephanie completed a Fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in 2018 so she could further her knowledge to better help those she serves at Revive Chiropractic.
When Stephanie is not at the office you can find her spending time with her family – her husband Michael and daughter Charlotte, finding new healthy recipes to try, reading, listening to music, CrossFit or some type of exercise, and researching more about nutrition and health.
