Bonnie L. Walker, DC, Dipl Ac has been a licensed chiropractic physician in the state of North Carolina since 1989. She founded Wellspring Chiropractic and Acupuncture Center in Boone, NC in 1990, where she has been a primary care provider of chiropractic services, classical Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion, nutritional counseling, and wellness care for all ages. She has a special interest in immune disorders, internal medicine, and women’s health.

Drawn to the healing arts at 18 years of age, first as a patient, then interested health enthusiast then a healing arts professional, Dr. Bonnie has been a tireless advocate of patient responsibility for their own health. She engages each patient in an active partnership in understanding and reclaiming their optimum health goals. This is achieved by instructing the patient in lifestyle management (diet, exercise, mental and emotional health), basic Chinese and western health principles, awareness of and responsibility for one’s basic needs, in conjunction with appropriate application of the least invasive, most simple and effective, integrative therapies from eastern and western medicine.
Her primary influences have been: Julian Timoner, DC; Dorthea Linley, MD; Cary Reams, PhD; “Chip” Poluhowich, Ph D; Jacob Janse, DC; Alan Beardall, DC; Sean Marshall, D Ac; Nguyen van Nghi, MD, Tran viet Dzung, MD; and all of their masters, to whom she is eternally grateful.

“As a principle, the chiropractic concept is a classic in the field of human biology; as a method of healing, it stands in singular preeminence; as a profession, it has come to assume a pertinent and leading role; and its members stand as a dedicated and determined body to afford a health care service both unique and remarkable in its effectiveness.” ~ Joseph Janse, DC
