To Donna, chiropractic care is more than simply improving alignment of the spine. It is a philosophy, science, and art which utilizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body. It is a healing science that places emphasis on maintaining the structural integrity of the body. In addition, it is a method of facilitating and promoting tone, so that all cells vibrate at their proper frequency. Chiropractic care explores the relationship between the brain, the body, and the spinal cord in order to restore and maintain health. Each patient’s treatment is unique and based on the response of the patient’s body. Donna journeys with the patient for support and empowerment so that the possibility of full expression of life is free of interference; physically, chemically, and emotionally. Her intent is to center and balance the dance between mind and body.

In addition to more conventional chiropractic care, Donna integrates the following modalities into her work as needed or desired:

BEST: Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique is a physical, yet non-forceful, energy balancing procedure used by the hands to reestablish the full healing potential of the body using it’s natural healing abilities. Using BEST, Dr. Reilly-Engel is able to direct the body’s energy into the perfect balance that enhances the body’s own healing and restoration powers using breathing techniques, emotional points, etc. (

TBM: Total Body Modification is a technique used to find the organ or area of the body that is stressed, determine the cause of this stress, and correct the problem by restoring balance to the nervous system. While Chiropractic is used to correct the Structure and influence the function, TBM corrects the Functional Physiology (how the body works) which may influence structure. Dr. Reilly-Engel tests the body for weakness, outlines the areas affected, and gives the body support in processing the healing method as needed. (

NET: Neuro Emotion Technique is a method to find and remove vertebral subluxations associated with an emotion. A negative emotion not released from the body may fester and impede the body subconsciously if not properly held in right dominion to the body. When our structural, biochemical, and emotional sides are balanced, areas of stress are released and have no negative effects. (

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis and adjustment during pregnancy that reduces interference to the nervous system, facilitates balance in the pelvic and abdominal muscles and ligaments which reduces constraint to the woman’s uterus allowing baby to get in the best possible position for birth.
