Dr. Johnson is a skilled and well-respected chiropractor providing diverse and state-of-the-art care to a community of patients here in Cashiers. As the daughter of a chiropractic physician, Dr. Resa credits her own health and strong commitment to her patients healing to her father. After receiving an undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland and a doctorate degree of chiropractic and acupuncture from the National College of Chiropractic, Lombard, IL, Dr. Johnson and her husband started their careers in Cooper City, FL. During this time, she had the honor and opportunity of serving as the chiropractor for the Miami City Ballet and as the house chiropractic physician for the Ft. Lauderdale Center for the Performing Arts.

Dr. Johnson’s commitment to natural healthy living extends beyond her profession as she and her husband infused their 3 children with an understanding and appreciation for natural healing. Dr. Johnson is extremely proud of the fact that 2 of their sons have gone on to create Genexa, a California- based, first of its kind company to offer an organic, non-GMO line of over the counter medications.
For twenty-five years, Dr. Resa has incorporated the Functional Medicine approach to patient care taking the time to develop an in-depth understanding of each patient’s unique medical needs including environmental and lifestyle factors that influence longevity and chronic disease.
