Kailua Wellness Center & Acupuncture Clinic Practitioners

Drs. Doug and Joni Kroll have been offering their healing services to Kailua and the island of Oahu since the 1980s.  Dr. Doug Kroll, D.C. opened Kailua Wellness Center in 1986, coming back to his home in Kailua after graduating from Life West Chiropractic College in California.  In 1989, Dr. Joni Kroll, D.Ac. joined her husband in practice, opening Kailua Acupuncture Clinic under the same roof.  Gordon Spencer, L.M.T., brother of Dr. Joni, has been with the clinic over 20 years providing massage therapy, specializing in deep tissue massage and chronic pain management.  Mariya Gold, L.Ac. has been part of the family since 2006, and joins Dr. Joni as a licensed acupuncturist.  In 2012, the clinic welcomed Drs. Jennifer Cherry, D.C. and Aren Viveiros, D.C. as chiropractic associates and Dr. Travis Thurston, N.D. as naturopathic physician.  Last but definitely not least, our center would not be what it is without our excellent front desk staff, including billings manager and all around extraordinaire Ku’uipo and receptionists Emily, Jessica and Gloria.

We all look forward to partnering with you in your quest for health and wellness!  Give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
