Dr. Raymond Nichols is originally from Laurel, Mississippi. This is where he was born and raised and spent the first 18 years of his life before moving to Thibodaux, LA. In Thibodaux he attended Nicholls State University where he completed his bachelors in athletic training while playing football. During his last semester at Nicholls, is when he decided to make the life changing decision of going to chiropractic school. To put things into perspective; Dr. Raymond was raised in an allopathic household where if his grandparents heard as much as a cough, they would intervene with medication but with good intentions. From the age of 8 years old Dr. Raymond had a gut feeling that intervening the body’s natural healing mechanism was not the answer, and with that same gut feeling he knew that chiropractic was exactly what he had been searching for. So, he attended Life University for his doctorate of chiropractic. At Life University is where he met Dr. Mariya, so not only did he obtain a degree, but he gained a beautiful family. His daughter’s names are Sienna and Collette.
Dr. Raymond is a natural born leader and a person of service for humanity. Due to his passion for serving humanity he decided not to specialize within chiropractic. So, he has spent numerous hours on perfecting his craft and communication so that he can serve people of all ages. He wants to see the world experience their true potential!
