Dr. Nicole is a holistic Chiropractic Physician, acupuncture fellow, and trauma informed sound therapy practitioner. She graduated from Logan University in Chesterfield, MO, after completing her clinical internship at the Veterans Administration in St. Louis. She also holds a Master's in Nutrition & Human Performance. She is Webster Certified and has additional specialized training in pregnancy and pediatric care.
Prior to becoming a Chiropractor, Dr. Nicole worked as a Firefighter-Paramedic. After years of working in the medical setting, she found herself treating patients where she felt so many of their conditions could have been prevented. She wanted to turn the focus back on treating the root cause of an individual's condition, rather than just the symptoms.
Dr. Nicole knows that health is wealth, and that emotional health is also a big part of that journey. She understands that there is a huge connection between the health of the mind and the health of the body. This is why her practice techniques work to assist in "resetting" the brain in order to achieve proper brain-body communication. In order to optimize one's health, you must be in a state of healing. Our busy world today can often interrupt our healing process, even though that ability lies within us.
Consider the time you got a small cut. Was it the bandage that healed it? Of course not. When a bone is broken, is it the cast that mends it? Not at all. Rather, it is the innate healing power within us all that heals cuts and mends broken bones. It is that same healing power that we can use to eliminate back and neck pain. To assist in managing and resolving digestive disorders, glandular/endocrine imbalances, nerve pain, muscle pain, sinus problems, circulatory issues, colic, ear infections, and much more. People often believe chiropractic and acupuncture is just for neck and back pain - but it helps with so much more because the focus is on balancing the body.
When the body is in a state of dis-ease for a long period of time, it can become diseased. By balancing the brain and body, you return to a state of ease. Disease can't live in a body that is at ease - and your ability is heal, is far greater than many have permitted you to believe.
As a speaker, coach, and soon to be author, Dr. Nicole has a desire to help others reach the pinnacle of performance in ALL aspects of their lives.
This is one form of Traditional Chinese Medicine in which specific points along the body are stimulated either with an extremely small (often un-noticeable) needle, or with other methods such as a light electrical pulse or pressure. By stimulating these points, it assists the nervous system in promoting balance and healing within the body. Used for a variety of internal and external conditions, including cosmetic and facial rejuvenation (an alternative to Botox/fillers). It can be a great complementary or alternative holistic treatment for your condition.
Our focus is on gentle, yet specific adjusting, using a combination of hands and the Activator instrument. Stimulating the joints at specific levels of the spine assists in "rebooting" the signal flow from the brain and the rest of the body, helping you to heal better and faster. Many people think of Chiropractic for just neck and back pain, but it can do so much more!! Our focus in on women's care, prenatal, and pediatric care, although we also see entire families. We are versed in the Zone Technique and certified in Webster with focused studies in pregnancy and pediatric care.

Holistic health is caring for the entire person. It is tending to your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs while being aware of how all of these aspects affect your overall health. We offer a variety of services in our office so that we can equip you with the right tools that you need for healing.
We believe that HEALTHcare should be affordable for families. If you are wanting to work with your insurance, we are happy to check out your plan for you and let you know what the best options will be. If you are self-pay, that's fine too! We always let you know up front what costs will be prior to doing anything. We never want finances to get in the way of your healing.
It depends on your insurance and the services rendered. We participate in a few different networks, but are always open to submitting to your insurance company even if we are out-of-network. Many insurance companies have good out-of-network coverage as well. Some services such as acupuncture and sound therapy are not covered by insurances. Chiropractic services are included in most plans now, although not all. Sometimes extremely high deductibles and co-pays also means passing on a larger amount to our patients. This is why we look at all options for you and promise to let you know what all costs are up front, prior to doing anything.
If you're unsure of which service would work best for you, you are always welcome to book a consultation. It is complementary and allows you to meet the doctor, and determine which service(s) you would benefit from the most. If there is a preference of service that you have, please feel free to inform us of that too!
We believe that less is often more. It does not require something aggressive to create a substantial change within the body. In fact, our motto is: Minor Change, Major Impact. This is why we like to keep our adjustments very specific and gentle. We often use a tool called an Activator, as well as other gentle techniques, that allows us to make these changes within the spine without a lot of twisting, turning, popping, cracking, or jarring motions. There are also forms of needless acupuncture available, although most patients report not even feeling the insertion of the acupuncture needles as they are so small.
