Over the past 25 years, Dr. Lani Simpson has established herself as one of the leading experts in women’s health care. Her clinical experience and her multi-disciplinary approach have enabled her to educate thousands of patients and professionals about some of today’s most common health challenges for women.

Dr. Simpson is a chiropractic doctor and a Certified Clinical (bone) Densitometrist (C.C.D.). The International Society of Bone Densitometry awards the C.C.D. certification to those who have demonstrated (though an exam) a mastery of an approved body of knowledge in osteoporosis diagnosis though DXA and CT scans, peripheral x-ray devices and ultrasound devices. A CCD is required to demonstrate proficiency in reading and analyzing bone density test results, bone related lab work and medications used to treat osteoporosis. She was the first alternative doctor to be awarded this certification.

From 1984 through 1997 Dr. Simpson maintained a successful chiropractic practice. During the early 90’s she observed that many of her female patients were frustrated and confused about what to do regarding symptoms of menopause, PMS, osteoporosis and other health concerns. In 1994 she co-founded the East Bay Menopause and PMS Center and the Osteoporosis Diagnostic Center in Berkeley, CA.

Together, these centers included chiropractors, medical doctors, and acupuncturists. This integrated and holistic approach allowed patients and doctors to work together to combine the best options from alternative and Western medicines.
