Meet the Doctors

Our team at Chiro Nash is one-of-a-kind! The powerful duo of Dr. James and Dr. Alissa Beuerlein bring an incredible combination of healing: one as a chiropractor, the other as a PhD Licensed Professional Counselor. Between healing the body and healing the mind - we’ve got you covered! Our staff come from diverse backgrounds, but we all share a deep love and commitment to the health and wellbeing of our patients. Read on to get to know us better!

James Beuerlein Jr, D.C.


Dr. James is a Nashville native and long time chiropractic patient. His own health transformation began when he experienced a complete resolution of the chronic seasonal allergies in his early twenties after beginning chiropractic care. Since then his passion for health has only deepened as he devoted his life to helping others experience the same.
He loves spending time with his wife, Dr. Alissa, and three boys. His children have all been adjusted since birth and have been living examples of the incredible health that the body naturally exhibits. He and his family love being “weird” and reaping the uncommon health benefits of going against the grain.
He has been a missionary in Mexico, has a degree in Linguistics and Biblical Languages, and speaks several languages. He loves super hero movies, seeing people’s bodies express their innate health potential, building things with his sons, going on dates with his wife, and watching the Olympics (summer and winter!). He is an avid reader and podcast listener - ask him if you need a recommendation!
