Dr. Elizabeth Wisniewski, DC MA RSMT PPNE RYT PhD candidate. She/Her/Hers.
Namaste, I’m Dr. Elizabeth Wisniewski and I am passionate about vitalistic perinatal care. I am the only Webster plus Perinatal certified Chiro within 100 mile radius. My practices are somatic, gender, and trauma informed. I am anti-ablest, anti-racist, and a Decolonial fourth-wave feminist. I am humbled to practice on Chumash (Shmuwich) land now known as Santa Barbara, California.
I am an ENFJ, 3 with a 2 wing on the Enneagram, and have my sun sign in cancer, moon sign in Scorpio, with a Leo rising. My love language is gift giving and I share my gifts through holistic healthcare throughout the perinatal continuum.
I was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and did my undergrad at the University of Montana in Missoula, where I earned a bachelors in environmental studies and political science. From a young age I was passionate about environmental and social justice. Those passions combined with my lived experience of over 30 eye surgeries for a rare eye disease deeply informed my journey towards holistic healing in my own body. And by extension motivating me to facilitate and advocate for healing in all beings. I am humbled to walk on this healing journey with you. And so it is.
