Meet The Team
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 years, she opened Healing Touch Wellness Center in 1998. Dr. Shelly is especially interested in addressing children's issues — starting with new borns.
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 acheive 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 new borns 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 be “Eagan Family Chiropractic and Massage” to better reflect the services offered. Dr. Shelly continues to educating patients on back care and overall healthy life practices, including services focusing on patient weight loss and nutrition.

Hello, my name is Veronica. I am the Chiropractic Assistant at Eagan Family Chiropractic and Massage. I will help you schedule appointments and direct you where to go in our clinic. I will also help with any Insurance questions or general informational questions you may have.
When I am not working at Eagan Family Chiropractic and massage, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons watching MN Wild hockey, golfing and traveling. I am so fortunate to have found my new work home here with Dr. Shelly. Seeing our patients heal is truly an amazing gift, and I look forward to helping you achieve your best you!
My name is Nicole. I am a massage therapist here at Eagan Family Chiropractic and Massage. I studied Professional Massage Therapy at Everest Institute in Eagan and graduated in 2008. I have been working with Dr. Shelly since 2008. I like helping our patients feel better. I reside in Eagan with my husband and kids.
Hello, my name is Renee Rudi. I am a mother of two boys on the autism spectrum currently living in Hudson, Wisconsin. I grew up near the family farm in Ojibwa, Wisconsin. After high school I attended the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire where I graduated with a BA in Journalism. In March of 2011 I received my massage certification from the St. Croix Center for the Healing Arts.
Since then, I have worked at three separate Massage Envy franchises. In January 2018, I decided to go back to school part time for physical therapy after learning the new paradigm shifting Fascial Counter-strain technique from the Jones Institute. I chose to attend the University of Wisconsin River Falls to major in exercise sport science towards a doctorate in occupational therapy. I also have a second major in communication science disorders. I hope to work either as an occupation therapist, a COTA (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant), or Autism Specialist in an elementary school setting which will still allow me to practice massage therapy part-time in the evenings and weekends. In my free time I enjoy camping and being outdoors. In the summer my boys and I are camping every other weekend. I also really enjoy going to concerts and watching live music performances. Cooking and baking have also been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I have also recently taken up knitting! I am so excited to be here at Eagan Family Chiropractic and Massage and look forward to working with all of you!
