Getting to Know Flourishing Family Chiropractic

Shelley Sousa is the owner of Flourishing Family Chiropractic in Cranford, NJ.

At a young age, Dr. Shelley found a passion for helping families get healthy. Dr. Shelley’s personal reasoning behind becoming a chiropractor stemmed from the improvements she experienced when getting adjusted regularly. She was diagnosed with severe asthma at 3 years old and suffered with allergies her entire life, until beginning chiropractic care in high school. This led to the complete resolution of her asthma, and a huge reduction in allergy suffering.

She obtained a Bachelor’s Degree from Fairleigh Dickenson University, and received her chiropractic education and Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, GA. Both the community and the education at Life University are exemplary, and while learning about how chiropractic adjustments aided the body to function as a well-oiled machine, Dr. Shelley also developed her sense of love, integrity, and knowledge of how the body heals from the inside, out. 

To better serve as many people as possible, Dr. Shelley opted to add to her classroom education by taking an optional course in order to be able to specialize in the care of pregnant women and children. The organization through which she obtained such certification is the International Pediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA). 

Today, the heartbeat of Dr. Shelley’s practice is expectant mothers, their children, and many other relatives with whom they choose to share chiropractic. Specific chiropractic care can help ease tensions in the spine, and aide in the body’s innate healing potential by keeping pressure off of the nerves that must run in between the vertebrae. Common results in the office include more restful sleep, increased immunity, reduced number of ear infections, and improvements in asthma and allergies. 

Dr. Shelley cares for her family the same as she does her practice members, through adjustments, nutrition, physical activity, and a positive mental attitude. Dr. Shelley consistently gives thanks to her husband David Sousa for being with her for the last 14 years, and giving her the support needed to reach all of her goals to date. They have a beautiful little baby girl named Jordan Rose who has given them a new understanding of what it means to love. Their family’s lifelong goal is to grow a practice to serve the masses so they can avoid the degenerative issues that so many suffer from today.
