Meet the Doctors

Dr. Jessica Roan


Dr. Jessica Roan’s passion for health and healing began with her undergraduate studies in Biology at Boston College. She went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic and spent the early days of her career building a successful family practice with her sister near their hometown in Easton, MA.

More recently she has had the opportunity to team up with her step-father, Dr. Louis Amantea, at Chiropractic Health Center and build upon the amazing practice he started nearly 50 years ago! Over the last 14 years she has had the pleasure of taking care of individuals and families of all ages. Both personal experiences and her desire to expand her vision of helping more people get well naturally led her to expand her clinical knowledge and skills in the area of Functional Medicine. The “Whole Body Health” approach assists individuals in getting to the root cause of their disease and dysfunction through Chiropractic care, ensuring that the nervous system is functioning optimally and Functional Medicine, to address lifestyle and habits to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself and be well. She and her team look forward to guiding you and your family toward a healthier future.
