Meet the Team
Dr. Jennie Hersey
When I was about 17 years old I started getting headaches. My grandmother told me I should see a Chiropractor. I had no idea who they were or what they did. So my grandmother gave me the name of her chiropractor (Dr Lilly) and I made an appointment with her. After I got my first few adjustments I felt so good. And not just my neck, but my whole body would feel so loose and relaxed. Then after about 2 – 3 months of treatments, my headaches were gone, I was sleeping better and eating better, I felt the best I ever had. I decided then, that I was dedicated to chiropractic care and I wanted to help other people have that same wonderful experience that I had. I know how great it feels to be adjusted and all the amazing benefits that go with it (such as boosting your immune system, increasing your range of motion and energy, just to name a few) and I wanted to make sure that my friends and family would be able to have all the benefits that I did.
After I graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a bio-chem degree I applied to 3 chiropractic schools. Upon receiving a scholarship to New York Chiropractic college I packed my bags and moved to Seneca Falls NY to start the most intense 3 and a half year program. I Graduated in November 2008 with my Doctorate in Chiropractic and started a practice in Portland Maine in February 2009. I owned and operated HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive rehab for 4+ years and was awarded The Chiropractic Clinic of the Month for August 2012 out of 374 clinics nationwide. We also had several Team members of the month win awards as well.
But in March 2013, I decided I was ready to come home and bring Chiropractic, health and wellness to my family, friends and the community around me so I sold my clinic and moved back to Fredericton, where I pursued my dream of opening Fredericton’s Health Source, a Chiropractic, Massage Therapy and Progressive Wellness Center. Currently I have been caring for patients for over 7 years helping them and guiding them in their healthcare journey.
I believe that everyone can benefit from a chiropractic adjustment! No matter the age, gender, or body type you are, everyone has stress and chiropractic takes stress out of the body. People need to be under care with a chiropractor or at the very least have your spine checked the same way your dentist checks your teeth. Chiropractors help the body return to a normal balanced environment, by adjusting the spine, removing stress within the body and educating patients.
Adjustments help increase the nervous system, organ function and decrease stress and arthritis in the spine. I believe that everyone should be educated on eating properly, moving right, and having their spines checked regularly. I know the benefits of what chiropractic can do and I want the opportunity to share that so it can change your life the same way it did mine. Being healthy is more than just trying to do the right things; it’s about knowing what the right things are. Health and wellness is taking care of our body as a whole by eating clean foods, exercising regularly, taking care of your mind and body with Chiropractic care, Massage and Progressive Wellness all put together. I always tell patients it’s my job to give you the optimal care and best recommendations possible, but it’s up to you how you want to pursue your health. All we are asking for is the chance to help you make that decision. I hope to see you soon!
I’m so excited to be back in my hometown practicing and giving back to my community. Thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to help you on your healthcare journey.
