Dr. Erica Peabody was born and raised here in Fenton, MI with three brothers whom all currently reside in the area with their families. Her extended families have been Fenton area residents for decades.
Following graduation from Fenton High School, Dr. Peabody started her college career at Michigan State University and during her first year, decided to pursue her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
She worked towards a Bachelor of Science in Natural Science at Michigan State University, Boise State University, and graduated, with Cum Laude honors, from University of Alaska Anchorage where she lived for 3.5 years.
Dr. Peabody began Chiropractic College at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated, with Magna Cum Laude honors, from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. After 10 years of schooling, she returned home in December of 2004 and opened her practice, Café of LIFE Chiropractic, 3 months later.
Over and above her Doctor of Chiropractic coursework, Dr. Peabody has completed numerous courses to offer the very best care for prenatal/postpartum patients, as well as, infants and children. She is certified in Webster Technique and is often sought after by midwives, doulas and other birth practitioners in the area to co-manage care for expecting mothers. She is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
When she is not helping people at the Cafe of LIFE, she is usually spending time on adventures with her Bernedoodle, Louis, at the local gym, yoga studio, running, reading, writing (blogging), biking or spending time with her family. She is an avid snowboarder and spends the winter weekends on the slopes as much as possible. Aside from being a chiropractor, one of her most favorite roles in life is being “Aunt E” to her handful of nieces and nephews.
While Dr. Navpreet Conn (Dr. Nav) is originally from Houston, TX, she is thrilled to serving up health in the Fenton, MI community. It is her passion to help others achieve their health goals through the natural expression of their best self.
Her chiropractic journey began while she was completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. While suffering from back pain, anxiety and depression in college, she decided to seek the help of a chiropractor who taught her what true health could be. After starting chiropractic care, she noticed a significant improvement in her mental and physical health. Her back pain subsided, digestive system and menstrual cycle regulated — all dysfunctions that she thought were “normal” to live with throughout her childhood. She was able to discontinue multiple medications for mood disorders and begin to feel alive again. Dr. Nav realized that she wanted to spend her life helping others transform their lives through all-natural chiropractic care, especially children and adolescents. After earning her Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology, Cognition Neuroscience, she chose to attend Life University in Marietta, Georgia where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. While there, she met her husband and Michigan native, Dr. Kyle Conn and both moved back to Michigan. After practicing in Brighton with her husband for 2 years, she has now transitioned to the Fenton area.
While she serves all populations, she brings with her experience and specialties in care for preconception, pregnancy, pediatrics and neurodevelopmental disorders. She is certified in the Webster technique designed for safe, gentle prenatal care and has completed an additional 200 hours of post-doctorate education through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in pediatric and family care. She is also certified in the FOCUS method which is a multi-pillared approach to neuro-deflective behaviors associated with behavioral, socialization and learning challenges in children and adults. She is proficient in multiple neurologically based manual and gentle instrument-based chiropractic techniques. These include: Thompson drop table technique, Diversified, Sacro-occipital Technique, Torque Release Technique and the Activator method.
Dr. Nav strives to be a resource for her patients to learn about whole body wellness through chiropractic, nutrition, movement, mindset and non-toxic living. Her goal is to normalize specific, gentle chiropractic care as a core wellness strategy for optimal development, health and function from birth and beyond.
