Dr. Amber Galipp is a native Texan. She was born and raised in the Dallas area. She attended the University of Memphis where she received her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. She had planned to attend medical school until her senior year in college. Her mentor mentioned a career in chiropractic and it all of a sudden made sense. Dr. Amber has always looked to the more natural ways to treat things and was treated by a chiropractor at a young age. She suffered migraine headaches in elementary school that would cause her to have to go home. It wasn’t until she began seeing a chiropractor for sports injuries she sustained that she began getting relief from her headaches. She just thought they were a part of life and was so glad to finally get relief. Like many of her patients, she had no idea that these things were all connected.
Shortly after undergrad, she started chiropractic school here in Dallas, Texas at Parker College of Chiropractic. When Dr. Amber began school she thought she wanted to be a sports specialist. It wasn’t until she had the unbelievable opportunity to serve on a mission trip to Haiti and Dominican Republic that her passion for pediatrics was revealed to her. While on this trip she was blessed to treat entire villages shortly after the 2011 earthquake in Haiti. It was on this trip that she realized the power of one single adjustment. There was an infant with a severe spinal curvature that would be detrimental to his development later in life. With one atlas (C1 vertebra) adjustment his issue completely resolved within 30 minutes. This impacted this child’s life forever, as it did Dr.Amber’s. This trip was when she felt the calling to help spread the word about the powerful impact of chiropractic care for kids! Her heart has never been the same.
Dr. Amber looks forward to coming into the office every day to see and treat her patients and is honored to serve, support, and assist each one to the best of her abilities.
Before finding LFC, Marissa worked as a nanny and children’s church teacher. She has always had a passion for working with kids and families. She is always ready to cuddle or play with your little ones while in the office!
Marissa was introduced to Chiropractic in high school after suffering a back injury her senior year. From the moment she discovered the power of Chiropractic she was hooked and has since developed a passion for holistic living not only in people, but animals too!
Marissa has lived in Texas all of her life. She grew up right down the road in Frisco but currently lives here in McKinney with her boyfriend of 8 years and their two pups, Jack and Dash. When she is not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, pups and working out. Her favorite workouts include rowing and playing co-ed soccer!
Marissa says her favorite part about being part of the LFC team is simply, the people. She enjoys building connections with patients and educating them about the gift of Chiropractic.
“Dr. Amber is simply amazing. We met her when my youngest was a month old. I took him to see her because he was constantly crying and I was desperate. After the first adjustment, he was better and after a few, he was a new baby. Now my entire family sees her. We see her weekly and I wouldn’t go anywhere else if I can help it! Many many thanks dr. Amber!”
“What is there to say about Dr. Amber & Marissa? They are simply the best! I started seeing Dr. Amber after learning my baby was breech. I was terrified of having a c-section & started looking into remedies - chiropractic care was the suggestion I saw over & over. A quick google search led me to Legacy Family & I never left! I’ve now been receiving weekly adjustments for almost six months. Not only did Dr. Amber help get baby flipped, week adjustments have been incredible for my overall health. Dr. Amber even adjusted my newborn baby girl when she was just 3 days old. She was so happy & comfortable!”
“Dr. Amber and the administration office, ran by Marissa, have been blessings to our lives for almost two years! Great care. Loving approach. Comprehensive treatment. You name it, we have experienced all of it for our autistic son. His sensory processing disorders have been thoroughly treated. We love Legacy Chiropractic!”
“Dr Amber was a lifesaver after I was put on bed rest early on my pregnancy and suffered from terrible back and hip pain. I wanted someone that used the webster technique and didn't just throw a pillow under my belly. Dr Amber is highly knowledgeable about treating women during pregnancy and after. I love how family-friendly their office is and I don't have to worry about bringing in my baby along with me. She was also able to help my back after pregnancy when I was sore from carrying around a toddler all day.”
“After years of chronic back pain and numerous chiropractors, Dr. Amber is the only one that has been able to get my upper back to adjust! Marissa is the best receptionist, always smiling! They are the perfect team!! I’m a forever patient!!”
“My family and I absolutely love our monthly visits with Dr. Amber. We all look forward to our adjustments and always leave feeling refreshed. Following a Csection, Dr. Amber played a huge role in my second pregnancy and is one of the main reasons I was able to have a successful VBAC. She offered so much knowledge and support at each visit and was extremely patient with any questions I asked. You truly won’t find anyone sweeter! Dr Amber and Marissa are the best!”
“I've been seeing Dr. Amber since the 16th week of my second pregnancy. I am 33 weeks now and can honestly say, I've had no aches or pains! Not even the usual sore back or round ligament pain. I completely credit the chiropractic care I've received for my comfort throughout this pregnancy.”
"I am beyond thankful to have found this place. I started coming here during my second trimester and I haven’t looked back. I have noticed an extreme difference regarding my comfort level this pregnancy and I’m excited for delivery. I also want any moms to know that this is one of the only offices in the area that are extremely kid friendly. There’s a designated nursing room and Marissa up front is excellent with children!!”
Dr. Amber is the best! She has helped my son, my husband, and me so much! I am pregnant and it’s hard to find a chiropractor that specializes in that! Have been going for years now and couldn’t ask for a better place to go!
Dr. Amber has been so great with our daughter. I am so glad we found her and happy with the results we are getting with our daughter. We were worried we would need a helmet and we have recently got word no helmet is needed!
“My baby no longer has Torticollis and was able to dodge wearing a cranial helmet for 18+ months all thanks to Dr. Amber! We Miss you!”
“Our experiences with Legacy Family Chiropractic have been nothing less than spectacular! Dr. Amber is patient, loving, kind, and a wonderful example of what you want a pediatric chiropractor to be. Our office visits are always something our kids look forward to."
