Hello World from Essentials Chiropractic

Hello World – This is my first try at the blogging world.  I hope to charm you with my wit and knowledge of things I am passionate about including; natural health, being a mom, pregnancy, and all things that make us healthy and happy.   If you would like to learn more about my practice visit or find me on Facebook or Twitter at EssentialsOmaha.   Here is a little about me: 

Dr. Kate Hansen is a 2004 honor graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic, located in the Twin Cities. Prior to enrolling in chiropractic college, she attended Wartburg College, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree and graduated with honors in Biology. 

Interested in whole body health and wellness, Dr. Hansen continued her professional education in acupuncture. She has passed the national board exam for acupuncture and holds acupuncture certification in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Nebraska.

Dr. Hansen has practiced chiropractic and acupuncture for the past eight years. She began in St. Paul, Minnesota as an associate doctor of chiropractic and then spent almost four years as the co-owner of The Chiropractors at Four Hills in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Her passion is empowering and educating patients (especially pregnant women) how to take their health into their own hands through natural healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Dr. Hansen feels so fortunate to have two beautiful children, a daughter named Hadley, and a son named Duncan. Because both of her empowering pregnancy and natural childbirth experiences, Dr. Hansen is especially interested in helping women have happy, healthy, and pain free pregnancies.
