Dr Jake Boyle

Owner/Chiropractor at Central Health Chiropractic

Dr. Jake Boyle is the owner and chiropractor at Central Health Chiropractic. He was born and raised right here in central Iowa in Ankeny. It was always his goal to travel the nation, learning as much as possible, then bring his skills and knowledge to his home community of Des Moines.

After originally leaving Ankeny, he received his BA in Biology from the University of Northern Iowa. He then went to Davenport, Iowa to acquire his doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic. While in school, he traveled the nation shadowing various doctors of chiropractic, absorbing as much knowledge as possible. He then went to work as an associate doctor for Drees Family and Sport Chiropractic in Indianola. There, he perfected his craft and had the opportunity to help thousands of people in many situations with a wide variety of conditions.

In his spare time, he participates in ultimate frisbee leagues to stay in shape and play’s recreational volleyball and soccer. He also enjoys working on design projects from furniture to entire homes. Recently, he has been a new pet owner to his cocker, spaniel Paisley.

Heather Thomas


Heather Thomas was born and raised in Indianola, where she still currently resides. She is proud of the four children she has raised and enjoys spending time with all of them, along with her four grandchildren and her husband, Jason.

Heather has worked in the chiropractic field for eleven years and enjoys developing relationships with the variety of people she gets to meet. She splits her daytime hours between Central Health Chiropractic and a non-profit business in Des Moines. In the spring and summer, she also runs a pop-up food stall called Roll With It, specializing in American Eggrollz. In the fall, until Christmas, you will find her at a variety of craft and vendor events, representing Aunt Nina’s Apron, sharing delicious toffee with family, friends and customers. She is also very active in her church and mentors a group of high school girls through their youth group.

Traveling is one of the things Heather loves to do and is always looking for her next big adventure. She has added a trip to Scotland to her bucket list in recent years and hopes to make that trip with her husband when they retire – at about the age of 92… In addition, she loves to laugh, especially at herself. Reading, cooking, and lounging in the sun are other pastimes she enjoys.

Heather is excited to be working side by side with Dr. Jake again and looks forward to helping him bring Central Health Chiropractic to the next level!

After growing up in St. Peter, Minnesota, she studied Exercise Science at Simpson College while playing basketball and softball. She is finishing a second degree in Dietetics online through Kansas State University. She is on track to becoming a Registered Dietitian after completing her dietetic internship hours this summer and fall.

Kelli believes food is medicine and health should be viewed with a holistic approach, including mind, body, and spirit.
