Dr. Shine is an uplifting energetic prenatal and women’s health specialist in the Kansas City Metro Area whose passion is helping mommies enjoy the journey of motherhood without pain and stress. As a mom of 3 beautiful children and a business owner she understands the pressures that life can bring and wants to help moms through them to have some sort of what resembles a normal life after you have kids both physically and emotionally. Her journey started out in Reno, NV where her grandmother had started her upon her Chiropractic journey long before she even knew what it was. Dr. Shine’s grandmother believed that herbal medicine was better than over the counter for any and all ailments. Growing up with nature as your medicine is the only thing that she had ever known. Upon graduation from high school, she received a full-ride to Creighton University in Omaha NE for nursing. Excited to help people, Dr. Shine soon recognized that the western medicine was not the right way for her to help people. She innately knew that the body was made to heal itself, and not to be masked by mass amounts of pharmaceuticals.
She took a couple of years off of school trying to figure out what it was that she needed to do with her life. It was only when she had a constant headache that not even the strongest pharmaceuticals could get rid of, that she fatefully ran into a Chiropractor in the gym, who, after the 1st adjustment got rid of the headache that she had been having for 3 months. She knew at that very moment that she had found her calling and started attending Cleveland Chiropractic College, graduating in 2010. While attending Cleveland, her sister had a child that was diagnosed with a Sensory Spectrum Disorder, and she wanted to know a healthy non-pharmaceutical way to help her niece. She started attending seminars with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). It was during those seminars that she had decided to specialize in Women’s Health, Pregnancy and Pediatrics. She has since received her certification in the Webster’s Technique, and has received her C.A.C.C.P. (Certification from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics) making her 1 of 5 in the Kansas City area with this special training, and is in the completion process of her Diplomat for Prenatal Care and Women’s Health in the Chiropractic field, which would make her 1 in 66 in the entire United States. She has now hired several other doctors to make sure that the entire family is taken care of in the “Align” way.
Dr Shine holds Chiropractic licenses in both Kansas and Missouri.
