Meet Our Team
Chiropractor Shelley Seguin D.C.
Dr. Shelley has been sharing her passion for holistic wellness care and natural healing as a chiropractor for over 18 years. She will help guide you through the wellness triangle of physical, emotional, and nutritional health to allow you to express your best YOU. Your quality of life sits in the center of her care plan for you and your family.
You can hear Dr. Shelley repeat “Motion is lotion” throughout the clinic. She wants you to understand that properly moving spinal joints allows optimal expression of your nervous system. With improved nerve function you will experience less discomfort and greater function allowing you to better enjoy “Life”.
As a young child, Dr. Shelley was introduced to chiropractic through her father. He was treated by Dr. Pell, the one and only chiropractor in the whole city for his unrelenting back pain. After exhausting the traditional routes of pain care her dad finally found relief through his spinal adjustments. The whole family valued having him happy and free of pain and establishing a strong belief in the power of chiropractic care.
After earning her Bachelor of Science degree and bachelor of education degree from the University of Toronto, Dr. Shelley pursued her Doctorate of Chiropractic at the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago, Illinois. She was honored to graduate Summa Cum Laude. Her post-doctorate studies centered on Pediatric and pregnancy care as well as low force instrument adjusting techniques like Torque Release Technique.
Your healing is her number one priority and she is committed to putting you on the right path. You can also find Dr. Shelley at Clarity Chiropractic.
