Dr. Shara Posner

Dr. Shara Posner

A College Park Scholar at the University of Maryland, Dr. Shara was studying for her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology when she first encountered chiropractic. As an intern at a chiropractor’s office, she saw people walking into the practice bent over in pain but leave happy and feeling well.

Since then, Dr. Shara has been hooked on the idea of living a more health-minded lifestyle. “I don’t have a deficiency of pain medications in my body. We get to the source of the problem and use the body’s own abilities to heal.”

Andrew Jelacic, LMT

“As a certified massage therapist since 2006, I have had a career that has been both challenging and greatly rewarding. I’ve had the opportunity to work with patients and clients with everything from surgical rehabilitation to diagnosed neurological diseases, fibromyalgia, pregnancy massage, cancer, migraines, and TMJ.

I have a strong working knowledge of trigger point, Swedish and deep tissue modalities, along with PSIS and active release stretching. Clients I’ve worked with have reported great results and a benefit to their personal healing journey.

My years of customer service has provided me with a great basis in listening to what my patients needs call for and establishing a working plan to meet their immediate and long term goals. I’m passionate about my profession and feel that I would be an asset to your personal health team.”
