Our Practice | Dr Rindie Coker, DN | Villa Park, IL 60181


The word naprapathy comes from the Czech word napravit, which means “to correct or fix,” combined with the Greek word pathos, which means “suffering.” So naprapathy means to correct suffering. Naprapaths evaluate and treat connective tissue disorders. Practitioners of this 100 year old healing system manipulate the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body in order to alleviate tension and promote a feeling of well-being. Naprapaths believe that improper tension in these connective tissues, often triggered by stress and trauma, cause imbalances in the rest of the body. These imbalances may interfere with nerve function, blood flow and lymph movement. When these vital pathways are obstructed or compromised, pain and distant pathology may result. Most people see naprapaths to alleviate body pain, but connective tissue disorders can also cause headaches and digestive discomfort.

Treatment by licensed Doctors of Naprapathy (DN) are based on scientific principles and are gentle, comfortable, highly effective and non-invasive.


We want to help you be healthy and stay healthy, not just fix you when you’re sick.

We look past your symptoms and use multiple evaluation tools to find out why your body isn’t functioning optimally . We spend time with our patients; you’ll never feel like you’re being rushed through your appointment. We respect where you are and what you are or are not willing to change in your life, and consider ourselves partners with you in your healing process.


“If you’ve been told you have to learn to live with it, now is the time to learn to live without it.”

Dr. Rindie Coker, DN bases her practice philosophy around the body as a self-healing, self-regulating organism. Health is our natural state, but sometimes everyday stress throws us enough out of balance that illness or injury results. Dr. Coker uses structural, nutritional, biochemical and energetic methods of evaluation and treatment to find the cause of these imbalances and to direct the body as it corrects them. She also looks into the lifestyle factors that are affecting your health.

Dr. Coker received her Doctor of Naprapathy from Chicago National College of Naprapathy and BS in Human Nutrition from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. She has been in practice as a naprapath since 2001 and as a nutrition counselor and bioenergetic practitioner since 1999.

Though skilled as a hands-on practitioner, the main focus of her practice is informational/energy medicine, as this allows communication with the autonomic nervous system that is in charge of all mind/body processes. These therapies include Neuromodulation Technique-The Feinberg Method,  probably the best healing system to date that addresses the problems in self-regulation that lead to any dysfunction or disease, and PSYCH-K, which addresses the erroneous beliefs about yourself that are getting in the way of where you want to be in life. Dr. Coker is certified as a HealthExcel Metabolic Typing Advisor and can help you find the foods most beneficial for your unique body. She also conducts  computerized assessments using a SpectraScan device to determine environmental stressors and then creates custom homeopathic remedies to help your body deal with this stress.

Dr. Coker continues her education through seminars in musculoskeletal techniques, functional nutrition, endocrinology, homeopathy, and bioenergetic work.

Her specialty is chronic pain and inflammatory conditions, digestive, hormonal and respiratory disorders.
