“The chiropractic care and monthly massages with Coby corrected my chronic neck and back pain and established a maintenance program for my problem areas to ensure my chronic pains do not return. Dr. Doyle’s guidance and expertise have improved my quality of life and health.” – A patient of Absolute Wellness, Nov. 2014


Chiropractor Dr. Susan Doyle

As a child, Dr. Doyle suffered from back pain due to scoliosis. She was urged to have surgery and was told she would never run or play sports. Fortunately, she began chiropractic care at the age of ten, and within three years of care her scoliosis was decreased by 95%.  She was completely pain-free. She credits her active lifestyle and love of sports entirely to chiropractic care. This experience not only molded her as a person but influenced her decision to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. It is something that fuels and inspires her every day.

Dr. Doyle completed her undergraduate degree at St. Mary’s College of Maryland with cum laude honors. While there, she played varsity lacrosse and field hockey and served as a member of the Ocean City Beach Patrol in Ocean City, Maryland. She earned her Doctorate Degree with magna cum laude honors from New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. While there, she received membership into Phi Chi Omega honor society.

Although originally from Maryland, Dr. Doyle grew up vacationing in the low country, and decided to make it her home in March 2009.  She has been practicing in beautiful Mount Pleasant since July 2009 and opened Absolute Wellness Center in January 2012.

Prior to coming to Absolute Wellness Center, I had chronic back pain due to hemivertebrae in my thoracic spine (a spinal anomaly from birth). I felt like I couldn’t function in my day to day life.  After six weeks of care, my pain was manageable, my overall health was improved and I was feeling like my normal self again. I feel like I’m better able to do the things I enjoy in life without being hindered by my condition. Dr. Doyle is personable, caring, relatable and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

Acupuncturist Katie Murphy

At 18 years old, Katie was diagnosed with Ménière’s Disease. Dizziness, vertigo, nausea and a deafening ringing in her right ear were constants in her daily life. Through the years, she had undergone two inner ear surgeries and was taking an arsenal of medications, none of which truly helped. It wasn’t until she found acupuncture that all her symptoms subsided, most of which disappeared completely, and she once again began living. Within three months, acupuncture changed her life. As an acupuncturist, she intends to pay it forward and help those who suffer all kinds of medical conditions.

Katie graduated with a Masters in Acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture, the first acupuncture school in the United States and one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the field. She’s also received advanced training under Master Tom Tam and famed Chinese herbalist B.J Wang. Katie believes in integrating both Eastern and Western approaches, ensuring a proper diet and supplementation are part of her acupuncture treatment plans. In addition to needles, she oftentimes incorporates supplementary modalities including gwa sha, tui na massage, moxibustion, cupping and electro-stimulation.

Katie holds a BA from the College of the College of the Holy Cross and a Masters in Integrated Marketing from Emerson College. She was born and raised in a small town outside Boston, MA, and is currently enjoying the warmer weather and lack of snow in Charleston.  She joined the Absolute Wellness team in January 2015.

I have been going to Absolute Wellness twice a month, which I consider my maintenance regime to good health. I have a massage twice a month with Coby, who really knows how to release my tension in my neck & shoulders. I have been feeling great.
