Our Doctor

Dr. Daniel Schilling

071617S 12

“One of the greatest pleasures of being a doctor is to guide and coach my patients 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 patients 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).

Secoya Health Chiropractor Minnesota  22

Amelia’s passion for holistic health began a few years ago during college. She attended the College of St. Scholastica where she received her Bachelors of Science in Health Information Management. During her time in school, she worked within the behavioral and mental health community. Her education and work experience inspired her to look deeper into the health industry and the long-term effect of poor nutrition and toxic products. 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. She was overjoyed to find Secoya Health and joined our team as our Lead Patient Care Coordinator. She is very happy to be in an environment that promotes health and wellness and inspires everyone to follow their dreams.

Amelia continues with personal research as she strives toward her goal to become a certified life coach and plans to continue her education with a Masters in Counseling Psychology. In her spare time, Amelia enjoys music events, camping, traveling, and spending time with those who are close to her.



Carolyn developed an interest in holistic health while living out in Portland, Oregon. Although only there for a couple of years, she was able to see firsthand how living a wellness-driven lifestyle can drastically improve one’s quality of life. Investing in her health little by little over the years through nutrition education, aromatherapy and other various simple forms of self-care, she made the decision to actively integrate more wellness into her life in a major way, as well as submersing herself into an already well-established community of wellness and healing.

Upon hearing about the role of Patient Care Coordinator, she knew this was an opportunity to not only learn more about holistic healing in a professional realm but also a chance to apply this knowledge to her personal life, educating those around her and effecting change. Armed with a strong will to learn and thrive, it was actually Carolyn’s initial lack of education in holistic health that intrigued her further. While Homeopathy and Holism were not in her school curriculum, she is excited to learn, grow, and educate others even further into this field.

Carolyn also has a Communications degree from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities. In her free time, Carolyn enjoys hiking, playing piano, traveling (to places warmer than MN), and spending time with her loved ones including her two cats Trixie and Paco.
