Shelly Recer D.C.
Dr. Shelly Recer, D.C. was trained in chiropractic at Northwestern Health Science University and graduated in 1996. After working with another chiropractic doctor for a couple of years, she opened Healing Touch Wellness Center in 1998. Dr. Shelly is especially interested in addressing children's issues — starting with newborns.
She treats children and entire families. Dr. Shelly is a mother of six terrific kids — all receive regular treatment since the day they were born. Moms and Dads love coming to the office, too, because it’s so friendly towards kids and they can achieve their health goals too — all at one location. Dr. Shelly has great success with conditions that are both new and older ones that have not responded to other treatments. Injuries, accidents, and chronic repetitive symptoms are all treated with excellent success.
Dr. Shelly understands the specific needs of women who are pregnant and chiropractic care can be quite helpful during each trimester. During pregnancy, the center of gravity changes, putting stress on the spine. Many women find their labor shorter and experience less discomfort if they have received chiropractic care during their pregnancy.
Getting newborns off to a healthy start, Dr. Shelly recommends starting babies with gentle chiropractic treatments to build a healthy immune system, as well as ward off other common childhood ailments.
Dr. Shelly Says…
"My goal for you is to improve the state of health you are in. This is different for everyone. There are so many ways to improve how you feel and how your body works. I like to add to the adjustments with nutritional and vitamin supplements, essential oils, exercises, and lifestyle changes. There are many facets to you and all need to be addressed. Your body has the ability to make changes and heal itself — we just have to figure out a way to make that happen for you. I would like to give you natural options for your health."
Dr. Shelly’s practice continues to grow. She has changed the name of her Eagan chiropractic practice to “Eagan Family Chiropractic and Massage” to better reflect the services offered. Dr. Shelly continues to educate patients on back care and overall healthy life practices, including services focusing on patient weight loss and nutrition.
