"There have been more advances in chiropractic research in the last decade than there has been for the last 100 years. We now know that when you deliver the chiropractic adjustment you are changing the structure and function of the brain. We have at the confluence of chiropractic and neuroscience achieved a deeper understanding of the science, art and philosophy of our purpose. Why our profession would want to continue to focus on conditions and pain relief is not only baffling, it’s antiquated."
Dr. Monique Andrews
Dr. Monique Andrews MSc, DC, DNM has been sharing her knowledge with chiropractors for nearly two decades. Her dedication to the philosophy, art and science was recognized the moment she entered the profession. Upon graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa she was awarded the Presidential Citation for Service to the Chiropractic Profession. An award usually only given as a lifetime achievement, Dr. Andrews was the only student to ever receive the honor.
As a practicing chiropractor, Dr. Andrews co-founded The Prana Group in Ottawa, Canada with her wife Dr. Tamara MacIntyre. The center served as a touchstone for health and wellbeing in the community for fifteen years. Dr. Andrews now serves as Chair of Basic Sciences at Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California.
Adored by the students, she is affectionately known as “Dr. Mo”. Faculty of the Year recipient in 2015 and Administrator of the Year recipient in 2016 and 2017, these accolades make clear Dr. Mo’s value in the educational setting.
Holding both Doctor of Chiropractic and Master’s degrees in Neuroscience, the breadth and depth of her knowledge is vast. Dr. Mo is best known for her engaging presentations and TED style of lecturing, making even the most difficult concepts accessible to all learners.
Earlier in her career as a research scientist, Dr. Andrews published peer-reviewed papers in the fields of Psychoneuroimmunology and the Neurobiology of Reward. Today, she speaks internationally on topics such as the Neurophysiology of Subluxation, Neurodevelopment of the Pediatric Patient, Evolutionary Impact of Chiropractic on the Brain and most recently exploring the connection between Chiropractic and Consciousness.
Dr. Mo’s scholastic acumen is an obvious asset, however those closest to her know her greatest gift is the enormity of her heart. Dr. Mo’s compassionate, authentic expression of life is exemplified by her belief that who you are as a person precedes who you are as a chiropractor.
Few people possess the expertise, presence and wisdom to make a meaningful impact on humanity. Dr. Andrews is a rare gift to our profession.
