Dr. Edwin Gibbs

Edwin C. Gibbs DC ND MSOM LAc


Dr. Ed Gibbs is a licensed chiropractic physician, naturopathic physician, and licensed acupuncturist. He is originally from Pennsylvania, where he accumulated extensive experience in the computer field. As his lifestyle developed towards a more natural approach, including veganism, his desire to share information with others led to a profession in the natural healing arts.

He relocated to Davenport, Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic and graduated with the Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Prior to graduation, he moved to Oregon to do a preceptorship with an established chiropractor and was convinced that the northwest would be most compatible with his lifestyle. He is the co-founder of Gibbs Natural Healing Centre, PC in Seaside, Oregon. The healing centre was established in 1990.

He continued his education at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregon, earning dual degrees in Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine.

His family includes his wife, Dr. Mary Ann Gibbs, licensed chiropractor, and two children, Ian and Mariah, whom he assisted in delivery at their home births. He was active for many years as an assistant scout master.

Dr. Ed’s interests include reading, research, and technique development. He also enjoys hiking and camping. He has studied tai chi and Qi Gong and offers on-going Qi Gong classes.
