Meet the Tagliarini Chiropractic Team

West Hartford Chiropractors

Dr. John Tagliarini

Chiropractor West Hartford, Dr. John TagliariniDr. John Tagliarini is originally from Clark, New Jersey where he grew up in a family oriented town similar to West Hartford. He developed a passion for healthcare and conservative treatment after a medical misdiagnosis which almost resulted in an unnecessary organ removal. Dr. John gravitated toward Chiropractic because it allowed him to work with patients naturally from diagnosis to treatment. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and his Doctorate in Chiropractic, both from the prestigious Life University, the largest Chiropractic university in the US.

Prior to moving to West Hartford, Dr. John and his wife owned and operated a Chiropractic practice in Charlotte, North Carolina for 5 years. In 2006, they headed north to be closer to family, raise their own family, and open Tagliarini Chiropractic. Since moving to West Hartford, their new practice won “Best Chiropractor” in the CT Now Reader’s Poll 9 years in a row. In his spare time, Dr. John enjoys laughing and playing with his 2 boys, all things cycling, Crossfit, and good coffee. He is honored to serve the West Hartford Community and surrounding areas by helping residents achieve better health without drugs, needles or surgery.

Dr. Jessica Tagliarini

Chiropractor West Hartford, Dr. Jessica TagliariniDr. Jessica Tagliarini, a native New Englander, grew up in West Springfield, Massachusetts. She always knew she wanted to be a doctor from a young age. She was drawn to Chiropractic following an auto accident that resulted in 9 months of chronic pain that was unable to be relieved going the traditional medical route. Thankfully a friend finally suggested Chiropractic. Dr. Jessica graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from the University of Massachusetts followed by a second Bachelor’s in Human Biology and a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Logan University.

She launched her first practice in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2001 just prior to meeting her future husband. In 2006, they moved to West Hartford and opened Tagliarini Chiropractic. Dr. Jessica is best known for her Webster Technique certification which allows for greater comfort during pregnancy and safer births. She is active in many local organizations including the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce where she served on the Board for 6 years and has served on the Ambassador Committee since 2006. She is the first female Board member in the history of the Connecticut Chiropractic Council and is currently on track to become the president. In 2009, the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce recognized her as “Ambassador of the Year” and in 2012 she was honored in Hartford Magazine’s “40 Under 40″.

In her free time she enjoys beach days with her kids, CrossFit, organic gardening and reading novels.
