Dr. Molly Ouellette graduated summa cum laude from Western States Chiropractic College in 2009. Over her time in practice, Dr. Ouellette has specialized in pregnancy chiropractic, along with postpartum care. Pregnancy is a time when women start to reevaluate how they manage their bodies. Her treatments are a gentle, safe, and effective approach to pain, discomfort, and functional issues with the changes which occur while bearing and caring for babies. Her goal is to help to educate and empower women at this stage of their lives. Additionally, she is skilled in treating many types of patients and welcomes the entire family to come in for treatment. She is excited to be able to provide care to patients both in North Portland and Southeast with Jade’s new satellite location with Body Mechanics studio.
Dr. Ouellette is educated in many types of bodywork and adjusting. She has specialized training in craniosacral therapy. She utilizes this light touch therapy with many patients, especially when working with infants and children. Additionally, she has trained in the Webster technique, which is a pregnant chiropractic treatment to help with breech babies.
Outside of chiropractic, Dr. Ouellette is a new mom to daughter Sloane born in late 2014. Her pregnancy and postpartum journey has been very informative to her practice and she enjoyed being on the other side of the care equation. She also is a lifelong dancer and completed her undergraduate studies in dance at UMass, Amherst. As a dancer, she often sought chiropractic care to keep her at her peak performance. During intensive training in college, she experienced a period of numbness in both of her arms. A chiropractor treated her with in-office care and gave her the tools needed to prevent future episodes. The empowerment she received as a patient resonated with Dr. Ouellette and ultimately lead her to study chiropractic. Beyond dance, she has studied Pilates and yoga and these physical studies influence her care approach.
