Dr. Michelle Fehmel
As the daughter of a chemist, Dr. Michelle Fehmel was taught at an early age how to avoid any kind of chemicals (dyes/preservatives in foods, medications, etc) because of their far reaching deleterious effects on the body. She soon developed an interest in proper nutrition and exercise. However, even with her many efforts to stay healthy, Dr. Michelle suffered multiple bouts of bronchitis and pneumonia as a teenager. “My mother suggested that I should find a chiropractor, of which I knew very little about. After my first adjustment, I immediately noticed that I could breath better. Over several months of care, I wasn’t getting the upper respiratory infections any more.” This is when she discovered that chiropractic helped so much more than headaches and back pain. “Without the nerve interference, my immune system was finally working the way it was supposed to.”
Dr. Michelle Fehmel (pronounced fay’-mal) received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Boston College becoming a member of the psychology national honor society. She then attended New York Chiropractic College graduating cum laude with her Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2004. She recently received her Functional Medicine certification. Beginning in June, she can help you identify and address your concerns and discover permanent solutions.
