Dr. Stacey Cantrell is one of three pregnancy and pediatric certified chiropractors in the state of Maine and has been practicing in the Portland area since 2005. She is specially trained in gentle, effective techniques appropriate for infants, children and all throughout pregnancy. Her specialty lies in working in pregnancy, pediatric and family wellness chiropractic. Dr. Stacey became a part of Family Chiropractic Associates in September 2013 and loves the integrative, whole body approach to patient care and well-being. Due to her extensive knowledge and experience in pre-natal chiropractic and the Webster Technique, many OB/GYN’s and midwives in the area regularly refer their patients to her.
Dr. Stacey graduated with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Chemistry from East Stroudsburg University in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. She earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She is certified in pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic and the Webster Technique by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Due to her interest in working with athletes and enhancing their athletic performance, she completed 7 additional classes on extremity adjusting while in chiropractic school, totaling 105 hours of class time beyond the core curriculum.
During her time at Palmer College, Dr. Stacey traveled to Fiji for a clinic abroad trip with thirty other students and four doctors. In nine days the team adjusted over 2000 people, over half of which were children! Her most recent chiropractic service trip was in April 2013. She traveled to Peru with 3 other chiropractors. In 5 days the team adjusted over 2600 people in the Sacred Valley. They were able to serve at 9 schools, 2 orphanages and a clinic. During the trip, follow- up footage was being filmed for the feature documentary Love Bomb. The film is being produced and directed by one of the team chiropractors and is about what we are capable of as human beings when we live from love. To learn more, visit www.lovebombthemovie.com.
