It started with chiropractic care and nutrition. Then, we added stress-based research and a customized model of evaluating people's health and how to best support them. It changed everything. We have since added life coaching, mindful eating, massage therapy, energy healing and workshops. The O Institute provides a space for healing, community, education, and experience beyond just health and into well being.
Our research is primarily on stress and how it affects our health and well being. This research has shown us the
processes that the human body goes through when it is exposed to chronic
stress. We are a unique clinical practice because we do in-house research. We do both case study research with real patients as well as scholarly research of the latest scientific studies and health care field.
We employ a stress based and holistic perspective in the assessment and delivery of your
treatment plan, making corrections to the neurology and musculoskeletal system through
chiropractic adjustments using a variety of gentle and non invasive tools and techniques. The
emotional and spiritual aspects of health are also addressed, ensuring a comprehensive
approach to your well being.
We offer a structured nutritional program that is appropriate for your specific needs. We use
health food recommendations and the highest quality nutritional supplements to further enhance
healing and vitality.

Dr. Kelila received her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University and has a passion for helping others understand and restore the complex nature of their body. Because each body is different, Dr. Kelila likes to incorporate multiple techniques to ensure each patient is treated as an individual, including but not limited to: Applied Kinesiology, Trigger Point, as well as diversified, full-body and extremity adjusting.

Before I found The O Institute, the word chiropractor scared me. I had this vision that I would be poked, popped, and prodded without a sense of the "whole me." Dr. Kelila, Dr. Anne, and Dr. Thomas have completely opened my eyes to a unique way of being in the Chiropractic world. To them, I say Thank You!
After being rear-ended in November 2015, I started seeing Dr. Kelila without really knowing how my life would change. In the six short months of our relationship, my awareness, knowledge, and appreciation for my body has exponentially grown. For years, I have been a yoga practitioner and yoga teacher with a great knowledge of the physical body. Or so I thought! After my injuries in 2015, I was exposed to such a holistic wisdom that our beings are so finely intertwined. I witnessed how what I ate, how I moved, and even what emotions I was feeling influenced my physical body. I know more about who I am now, than I did 6 months ago. And my body has healed sustainably because I know what the root causes are of my ailments. I don't wish anyone to get into a car accident, but I'm so grateful that mine landed me among such a wonderful group of experts, who have become friends.
Each week I show up to The O Institute and I feel like I'm walking into a friends home. Everyone is welcoming, empathetic, and authentic. Exactly the kind of place that I want to be taken care of at.
