Dr. Daniel Schilling

“One of the greatest pleasures of being a doctor is to guide and coach my participants in living a lifestyle for optimal health. Achieving wellness is more than simply being out of pain. It is about living a balanced lifestyle; physically, nutritionally and emotionally/mentally/spiritually. My passion for health and wellness is rooted in self-discipline, dedication, and consistency. These are needed to achieve the greatest expression of life possible. I would not ask a patient to do something I would not or have not done to achieve vitality in life.”

“I believe our thoughts have a tremendous effect on our lives. What you think about you bring about. When we start thinking positively good things happen. This must also be applied to our health and well-being. It is a pleasure for me to not only be part of my patient’s wellness path but more importantly, see them through to achieve their goals.”

Dr. Schilling became a chiropractor because, as he puts it, “Without chiropractic, I could not do the activities I enjoy.” Having played hockey and baseball through high school, Division II college football at UMD and now playing Capoeira, Dr. Schilling is a life-long athlete. He understands how to treat athletes based on the challenges their activities present. Dr. Schilling believes everyone deserves to live free from pain and be able to achieve their peak performance.

Dr. Schilling graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic. Prior to studying Chiropractic Medicine, he had a career as a Mechanical Engineer, including several years volunteering for the Peace Corps in Mexico as a Systems Engineer and Knowledge Management Specialist. His work analyzing many different systems as an engineer has provided him with a heightened understanding of the interconnectedness of the systems of the human body. Applying these skills to his chiropractic care allows Dr. Schilling to not simply focus on the immediate pain, but rather on finding and correcting the root cause of the problem.

When not treating participants Dr. Schilling spends as much time with his wife Sarah and daughter Sophia as possible. Time with family and friends is where happiness lies. Outdoor activities are where you'll find Dr. Schilling most as he enjoys playing golf, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, snowboarding, x-country skiing, playing hockey and Capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian Martial Art).

Transforming how she chose to care for her physical and mental health, lead her down the road of holistic health and continues to inspire her as she works to achieve goals within the industry.

After graduation, Amelia moved to the twin cities to expand her horizons’ and build a larger skill set.

Originally from River Falls, WI, Annissa began her journey with wellness by working for a chiropractor who specialized in nutrition and holistic health during her high school years. As a receptionist for this doctor, she was able to ask questions and further satiate her curiosity with treating people in an alternative manner. She also gained experience with emergency medicine through being an EMT with her local ambulance service. Annissa attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science with a minor in Spanish. Her time spent in emergency medicine has guided her toward a treatment model that emphasizes treating the entire person instead of just the symptoms.

Upon discovering Secoya Health, Annissa knew the patient care coordinator position was the right fit for her. She is excited to work with a team that values everyone’s gifts and talents and helps others achieve their health goals. When she isn’t at the clinic, Annissa enjoys traveling the world and discovering new, exciting places. She also spends time with her family, listens to audiobooks, and loves learning something new every day.

She was thrilled to find Secoya Health to start work again and continue to grow and learn all things natural and holistic. She is excited about the impact holistic healthcare will have on her and her family’s future and is ecstatic about working with such an amazing team of people! Melissa is very passionate about helping people become the best versions of themselves and is excited to see where this road leads her.

During her time tied to the military, Melissa got to visit and explore many countries including Japan, South Korea, Germany, Spain, England, and many other European countries.
