Amelie Watson, DC – Owner, Chiropractor
Amelie (or Amy) Watson has been a chiropractor for over fifteen years, and is the mother of three incredible kids. She graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Psychology. During her own healing journey, she discovered the wonders of chiropractic care. This led her to change her career goal from being a family counselor to becoming a chiropractic physician.
She began chiropractic school in 1999 and had her 1st child midway through the program. This experience helped her learn firsthand about the unique needs of the prenatal and postpartum chiropractic patient. After the birth of her son, she began learning more about chiropractic care for infants. She began focusing on treating moms and babies in the student clinic, began taking Craniosacral Therapy seminars, and completed her senior internship with Dr. Elise Hewitt, an expert in the field of pediatric chiropractic. She graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 2003, and worked closely with Dr. Hewitt at Portland Chiropractic Group for two years.
In 2005, she founded Whole Mama ~ Whole Child. She feels incredibly blessed to be living her dream: balancing the magic of motherhood and family time with the joy of working with the hundreds of amazing families at WM~WC.
Dr. Nahinu James has moved to Active Wellness Chiropractic in SW Portland.
