As a chiropractor, Dr. Fagen believes in finding and addressing the cause of her patient's issues, using a multifaceted treatment approach. She uses postural assessments to screen for asymmetries in the body, muscle testing to discover compensation patterns, laser therapy to promote healing in damaged tissues, and gentle adjustments to restore mobility, when indicated. She adapts each treatment to meet the needs of her patient, and has plenty of tools and tricks up her sleeve.
As a psychotherapist in training, Michelle uses gestalt therapy to help her clients navigate challenges in their lives. She has sat in the client's chair herself for many hours, and knows first hand how empowering and life changing therapy can be. Michelle brings her humour, empathy and creativity to her therapy work.
WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT MICHELLE...
Michelle knows back pain - and has a specific interest managing disc herniations, both her own and her patients'. When she's not being a chiropractor (or a chiropractic patient), she is working on completing her psychotherapy studies (currently in her final year of a 5 year program) or attempting to tame her sons Oliver and Simon. In the few spare minutes she has left, she enjoys travelling (missing this during the pandemic!), swimming (great for the back and mind, and also missing this during the pandemic!) and riding her pink bike.
