This Is Not Your Ordinary Healing

We work together to
revitalize your whole self




Dr. Maureen Borghoff

“I just don’t feel like myself”

Your brain and nervous system are your body’s power houses. When you experience pain, energy depletion, hormone imbalances, or poor sleep quality, that’s your brain’s way of saying that something is not working at its optimal level.

We work with you and your unique history to bring you back to your essence, the truest you. The benefits of our work are far reaching, decreasing physical discomfort but also releasing old trauma, chronic symptoms, and most importantly, increasing your overall zest for life.

People often come to us as a last resort, and they stay for a lifetime.


Our approach is simple.

We believe that health is amongst our most valuable possessions. Many of our clients come to us because they feel imbalanced or in pain, but they stay to reach their personal optimum health through wellness care. We consider these to be Relief Care and Wellness Care. Whichever you require, we meet you where you are in person and online.

We are a health and wellness catalyst, always looking for and addressing the root cause of your physical or emotional pain. The work we do at Essence of Life Wellness Care goes beyond chiropractic into the realm of energy healing, nutrition and lifestyle support, and whole body care.

Wherever you are in your healing journey…

I’m tired of feeling like sh*t all the time!

Our services meet you where you are. 

Whether you’re tired of feeling crappy, or you simply want to live your most optimized healthy self, our process is the same, but the insights and results are tailored to your needs.
