Johanna LaPerle

Hello to all. My name is Johanna LaPerle or as some call me “Jo” !

I started working at Drs. Marko Family Chiropractors in March of 2006, but I have had the privilege of knowing Dr. Richard and Dr. Stefanie since 1992 when I first started receiving Chiropractic care.

I graduated from Spaulding High School in 2003, I then attended New Hampshire Community Technical College. I am Certified in Massage Therapy, have 800 hours of hands on training, and have my Associates Degree in Education.

I am privileged in being a part of such a loving and caring staff here at Family Chiropractors. I’m here at the office the same hours as the Doctors. If I’ve met you I can’t wait to see you again, and for those I have not met, I can’t wait to meet you.

I provide 15 minute, 30 minute, and one hour massages. Call anytime for an appointment or questions, and I’ll be happy to help you.

Happy And Healthy Wishes To All

Your Massage Therapist
