Welcome to Modern Health Chiropractic & Wellness. Located downtown St. Catharines, we provide services to help families in our community get well and stay well.
Our goal is simple: to modernize and raise the bar for health in the Niagara Region. Gone are the days where people thought the definition of health meant feeling good and being symptom free with the help of medications and surgery. Through chiropractic, massage, movement, proper nutrition and positive lifestyle changes, a new level of health and wellness can be achieved naturally
The health within our community is quickly deteriorating. Our new perceived normal includes alarming rates of chronic illness, overdependence on drugs and medications, sky-high rates of childhood illness and an inability to cope with daily stress. At Modern Health Chiropractic & Wellness we serve to elevate health, restore happiness and vitalistic inspiration to families and awaken the game changing, self-healing power within each and every one of us.

Dr. Schutt is extremely passionate about health and helping her patients reach their personal goals.
