Dr. Therese has always had strong passion for improving the health of children and families. This passion had caused her to seek additional training in pediatric care from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and Hope for Autism. She is also certified in Webster technique, a specific Chiropractic technique utilized during pregnancy. Dr. Therese is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and Michigan Association of Chiropractors.
Dr. Therese uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Therese takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Therese will be able to determine the root cause of the problem and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

Kali is originally from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She moved down to Grand Rapids when she graduated high school and obtained her Clinical Exercise Science degree from Grand Valley State University. She then went on to get certified in Medical Massage Therapy through Blue Heron Academy in Grand Rapids. Since then, she has become licensed to practice massage therapy in the state of Michigan. She specializes in medical, Swedish, sport, and deep tissue massage. She uses slow purposeful strokes to obtain full muscle relaxation. Her goal is to help those in chronic and acute pain and believes the way to do that is through regular massage. Kali has always had a passion for the body and movement/kinesiology, and is excited to put that passion to use.
"Everyone has very specific needs when it comes to massage and I look forward to working with individuals, discussing their aches and pains, and working on a plan together to reach optimal relaxation while working out knots and muscle imbalances"
When Kali is not massaging, you can find her painting, watching her favorite shows, or taking her dog Ani on a walk with her husband.
