Chiropractic doctors use a hands-on approach to health care that focuses on how bone, joint, and nerve problems affect general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including, but not limited to: back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms and legs, and headaches.

Chiropractors detect and remove subluxations, or misalignments of the spine, allowing proper communication between the brain and body therefore restoring function to the nervous system. As a result, many patient’s experience improvements in a variety of conditions in addition to musculoskeletal complaints.

The SuNu team brings together practitioners with years of experience in a diverse range of Chiropractic techniques including the Webster Technique, Graston Technique, Diversified, Activator, SacroOccipital Technique, Kinesiotaping, Thompson Technique, Pre-Natal and Post-Partum Care, Pediatric Care, Chiropractic Craniosacral and more.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, light-touch healing modality that helps balance the nervous system and restore health and vitality to the body. During a session the client remains fully clothed and receives the treatment on a massage/bodywork table. Through a series of light-touch hands-on holds at various areas of the body, the practitioner provides a neutral listening presence that supports the client’s body in reorienting towards health. The practitioner listens to the tissues and fluids within the body and helps the client locate areas of the body that are under-resourced as well as areas that express health. Through witnessing and acknowledging tension, compression, or pain, combined with an appreciation of potency and vitality, bodies are capable of shifting, reorganizing, and releasing tension and trauma. The work aims to increase overall wellness, integration, and reconnect with wholeness.

Acupuncture, Craniosacral with Adrienne, and East-West Extended follow-up appointments for current clients are able to be scheduled online! (Please note if you are a new patient to one of these services, you will need to call to schedule your first appointment)

Acupuncture, one of the main forms of therapy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), has been practiced for at least 2,500 years. In acupuncture, certain points on the body associated with energy channels or “meridians” are stimulated by the insertion of super fine needles, that range from 0.12mm to 0.30mm. If compared to a normal hypodermic needle at 29mm, acupuncture needles are barely felt at all. The points can be needled between 15 and 90 degrees relative to the skin’s surface, depending on treatment.

Acupuncture restores health by removing energy imbalances and blockages in the body. TCM practitioners work with the vital force or energy called Qi. (pronounced “chee”) It flows throughout the body between the skin and the internal organs, and along channels or pathways called meridians. Qi regulates the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical harmony of the body by keeping the forces of yin and yang in balance. Yang is a principle of heat, activity, brightness, outwardness, while yin represents coldness, passivity, darkness, interiority, etc. TCM does not try to eliminate either yin or yang, but to keep them in harmonious balance.

The overall experience for those receiving acupuncture treatments can vary greatly. Most report feeling very relaxed during the treatment and many fall asleep. Some find the treatments to be very invigorating and energizing. Almost all report decreased stress and improved well-being. Interestingly, it is rare that a patient reports overall discomfort or pain associated with the treatments, even if they went in with a good deal of concern or fear over the idea of needling. Whatever the case, it is worth looking into further if you are interested in this traditional form of healing. Call or email today for a free informational consult with one of our acupuncturists.

Nutrition is a key element of good health. Integrative Health and Nutrition Coaching is a modern natural approach to developing a healthy balanced diet while taking into account the person as a whole. Holistic health is an approach to treating a person’s well being by taking into consideration all aspects of life. A long term course of action includes emotional and spiritual health along with the physical body. Modern traditional medicine tends to focus on treating symptoms rather than finding the root cause. If a person is experiencing a symptom or chronic condition, the problem has most likely been developing for some time. The goal of integrative nutrition is to facilitate a health recovery plan as well as build a strong foundation for long term optimum health. Sunu’s Kristin Elam can work with you to design a personalized program to help to recover and protect your health, prevent allergic reactions and alleviate symptoms of many disorders.

June is a licensed Massage Therapist offering bodywork services such as Personal Injury, Swedish, Sports, Myofascial Release, and Deep Tissue massage. She also draws from her training and interest in lymphatic drainage techniques, integrated craniosacral, chakra balancing, and reiki for a thoroughly intuitive as well as clinical approach to bodywork.

When working with June, you can expect . . . the unexpected! She takes a new approach in every session, including with clients she’s seen multiple times. “After doing a full history and listening in depth to my client’s areas of discomfort or things they’d like to work on, I enjoy doing a slow warm up in order to bring areas of tension and pain to the surface. From there, I like to address that pain by listening to the muscle response, paying attention to how it moves and releases, and apply pressure within the scope of comfort for my client. It should feel productive, not painful!” With her intuitive, precise, curious and innovative style of bodywork, June is a favorite practitioner for those with lingering pain from post op procedures, nerve issues, chronic neck and back tension, people experiencing extremity numbness, anyone working through injury, ergonomic concerns, chronic pain and more.

At SuNu, June is inspired by the collaborative approach to holistic health care. She enjoys being able to work with practitioners who specialize in other modalities in order to offer well-rounded and full-bodied care to her clients. She’s also happy to be working more with prenatal and postpartum birth clients at SuNu.

Dr. Courtney is one of the pediatric and prenatal chiropractors at SuNu. She specializes in care surrounding tongue and lip ties by utilizing a combination of chiropractic adjustments and craniosacral therapy. For most of her life, Dr. Courtney intended to be a pediatrician, but while in college at the University of Tampa, she heard an amazing testimonial about the healing power of chiropractic care for children. After further researching the subject, she realized that the body is capable of healing itself once proper spinal alignment is restored. This made her change her focus entirely, and she began pursuing a career as a pediatric chiropractor, rather than one in pediatric medicine.

After receiving her undergraduate degree, Dr. Courtney attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2016. She has received additional pediatric focused training from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Dr. Courtney also discovered a passion for women’s health and providing prenatal care during her own pregnancy. She began learning about tongue and lip ties prior to having her daughter, Rowan. It was not until Rowan was born with significant ties that Dr. Courtney recognized how truly impactful care for infants and children with these can be.

Dr. Courtney cannot wait to meet you and is excited to join you on your journey to wellness. She currently sees patients at our Minnetonka location. After receiving her undergraduate degree, Dr. Courtney attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2016.

Alex Kewitt (she/they) is a bodyworker, facilitator, artist, and youth worker. Alex has nine years of experience working within the field of Human Services in a variety of roles including supervising homecare services for adults with chronic illnesses and disabilities, providing case management and advocacy to folks living in low income public housing, and working at an emergency shelter for youth and conducting outreach to minor youth experiencing homelessness. She found herself drawn to study BCST while receiving sessions of her own throughout that time and is now a graduate of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy program with Body Intelligence.

She appreciated the dynamic, collaborative and creative nature of the work, as well as its grounding in anatomy and physiology. Alex noticed how BCST empowered new ways to relate to her body, her mental health and trauma history, and supported her in accessing increased health, resiliency and resources within herself. Alex’s bodywork practice combines skills learned working within human services as well as her art and movement background.

When working with Alex, one can expect care that comes with a trauma informed lens. In her own words, Alex says, “consent is really important to me, especially around touch. I appreciate a good mix of silence/stillness, as well as dialoguing with clients during sessions to hear what’s emerging for them. I tend to use humor, irreverence, playfulness in my work as well.”.

Anyone can benefit from BCST. This modality is really gentle and subtle, but can have profound positive impacts. It’s a good way for folks to pause, rest, process and digest. BCST helps to reconnect with the body’s resiliency, self-regulating capacities and reorient towards one’s overall wholeness. This work is really supportive when recovering from illness, injury, surgeries. It’s good for treating anxiety, depression, sleep issues and generally calming the nervous system. It’s great for pregnancy and post birth support, tinnitus and TMJ issues, acute and chronic pain and helping resolve prest trauma held in the body.

Alex is Queer, a parent, and of European descent. She is committed to continually engaging in embodied, antiracist work of unlearning and dismantling harmful patterns around whiteness, as well as tending to her cisgendered & able-bodied privilege. With this, she feels it’s vital to deepen her awareness of the impacts of oppression on bodies and communities, while holding an abundant hope towards healing and liberation for all.

Alex is excited to offer her services to the SuNu community and looks forward to working more with her Queer community, specifically. She prioritizes and encourages Trans folks needing support and care around transitioning to seek her services and is also excited to work with folks who are pregnant/needing postpartum care and chest/breastfeeding. Alex currently lives on occupied Dakota and Anishinaabe land, in Minneapolis, MN. She is a parent of a toddler and has two cats. She loves reading, dancing, biking, performance art, poetry and food.

Dr. Susan Quigley is the owner and founder of SuNu Wellness Center. She was first exposed to chiropractic care at a very young age, receiving her first adjustment by a pediatric chiropractor at age two.

Tichelle is a Certified Massage Therapist, offering services from our Minnetonka Clinic. She is a 2015 graduate of the massage therapy program at the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis.

She first developed an interest for massage at a young age by simply giving her mom massages at home to help her relax after a long day of work and being a single mom of three daughters. When it came time for Tichelle to choose her educational path, she chose massage therapy and found her passion. She continues to highly value the importance of self-care in all of its forms.

Tichelle offers deep tissue, trigger point release, Swedish massage, prenatal, sports massage, foot reflexology. She loves working specifically on neck/shoulder pain, headaches, piriformis/leg pain, glutes and hands/feet.

Tichelle uses intuition, body knowledge, awareness and gentle connection to create a safe, calming and receptive massage experience for everyone she works with. “I like to think of myself as a “body listener” – I am able to learn a lot from the client’s body without having too much chatter or verbal storytelling getting in the way of what the body actually needs.”

When Tichelle isn’t working at SuNu, you may find her listening to books on audible, especially magic/fantasy thrillers, Greek/Norse mythology genres. She also loves a relaxing self-spa day or time at home with her dog.
