Dr. Shelly Persad graduated magna cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2008. She has practiced in Scottsdale, AZ as well as Portugal, Trinidad, Morocco, Brazil, and Puerto Peñasco, Mexico, and is now excited about offering her services here in Puerto Vallarta.

Dr. Shelly's passion in chiropractic has been found working with athletes of all caliber, from bodybuilders to professional golf players to the ITUSA professional tennis players from all over the world to players of the FC Porto team, to enhance their performance, decrease their recovery time and prevent injuries.

Dr. Shelly is a certified posture neurologist which addresses the declining posture due to technology use, as well as declining brain function.  She utilizes many different chiropractic approaches depending on the age, size, and health condition of her practice member, but specializes in soft tissue methods and energetic techniques that are more of a whole-body approach focusing on removing stress from the nervous system and allowing the body to integrate its past stressors so one can express their life’s full potential. Some approaches that she utilizes are BGI (bio-geometric integration), Thompson drop table, activator, ART (active release technique), SOT(sacro-occipital technique), Webster Technique (specifically for pregnant women), extremity adjusting, trigger point therapy, kinesio-taping, PNF stretching and the traditional diversified adjustment.  She offers postural and brain rehab exercises post-adjustment as well.

Dr. Shelly is not just a chiropractor though, but rather she brings years of experience to her practice as she is a personal trainer, former fitness competitor having placed in the top 3 in all 7 competitions, published co-author of “The Energy of Happiness” (along with numerous e-books), empowerment speaker, and relationship coach. She spent 4 years as a certified facilitator of Law of Attraction/self-help workshops for a worldwide organization, has been featured on CBS and has coached over thousands of women on body image issues and relationship difficulties. Her coaching style is a blend of techniques from Ayurvedic Medicine and quantum physics – as she commonly refers to as 'ancient knowledge meets modern science.'

Dr. Shelly is extremely grateful to have found her life purpose through chiropractic and being able to inspire others to make the changes necessary to live the best life possible. Her journey as a chiropractor has transformed her life and that is why she has a deep passion for transforming yours and the one of your entire family. Nothing makes her heart smile more than helping people of all ages to heal and express more of their life’s true potential.

When she’s not educating people on health and wellness or coaching people on relationships, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Kumar, and their four-legged child, Aja (aka monkey), working out, yoga, reading, cooking, writing and publishing her books, traveling, and of course all the activities that Puerto Vallarta has to offer (sunbathing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, boating, diving etc.).

I wish you could find a more accessible location

El Dr. me pareció poco competente. No logró sincronizar la mesa con su ajuste. O sea, cuando la mesa baja el no logra sincronizarse y hace la presión con las manos después. Además cuando me recibió estaba con la camisa empapada en sudor. Esto es algo normal pero si tiene ese problema debería cambiarse para atender a un nuevo paciente. Es muy desagradable para un paciente sentir la camisa empapada en sudor encima de ti. Por otro lado, la presión que ejercen para que uno use los servicios de la fisioterapeuta fue excesiva.
