We Help People Like You Live Healthier, Happier Lives

The perfect place to heal your soul

When you’re tired of feeling worn out, uncomfortable, or plain “not right”, Essence of Life Wellness Care steps in to help. At Essence of Life, we provide Acute Relief and Ongoing Wellness soft touch chiropractic treatments as well as a variety of energetic and counselling therapies to help you live your best life.

Founded by Dr. Maureen Joy Borghoff, the Essence of Life Wellness Care office is bright, serene, and the perfect place to heal your soul. Though we’re primarily a chiropractic office, we’ve also gathered a team of dedicated healers to help support your journey to health.

Our chiropractic care is unconventional and here’s why…

  • We work with the brain and nervous system to heal a variety of physical and emotional issues.
  • We use light touches. We don’t snap, crackle, or pop your body into place.
  • We work with people who want to live more active lives and become more of who they truly are.
  • We educate and empower our clients so that they can use the wisdom of their bodies to heal themselves.
  • We find the root cause of your symptoms and integrate the right treatment for you.

I want you to lead a joyous, fulfilled life.

I’m Dr. Maureen Joy Borghoff.

My friends and family refer to me as MoMo. I fundamentally believe that you and your family can live the life of your dreams.

You don’t need to feel overwhelmed, stuck, in pain, or “not like yourself” anymore. You can increase your energy, age gracefully, and ditch your fear of missing out on the life you’ve always wanted.

Yeah, I have a “Dr.” in front of my name, but I too have struggled with anxiety and depression, fatigue, and not feeling my best. I’ve had health scares. I’ve seen my mother survive breast cancer, a great friend die at 36 from breast cancer, and I have seen more than 10,000 people come through my office with every different type of ailment – physically and emotionally (almost anything you could imagine).

To me, having that “Dr.” in my title means that I am obligated to teach others what I know and also learn the best techniques to make a real difference to you and your family.

I want you to have a joyous, fulfilled life. When you take your last breath I want you to say “What a ride my life has been!” We can do that together.

I will always remember the day that I watched our spunky 87 year old firecracker sit down next to the nervous mother holding our newest practise member. Watching the beautiful lines on her smiling face as she looked down at the little bundle of new life.

Some come because they feel broken- back pain, neck pain, anxiety, digestive issues, burnt out. I remember feeling just like they do. I also had migraines and spent most nights waking up with anxiety. It is the reason I can greet them with both empathy and also the ability to extend hope. Once a person is out of that state of pain and crisis, that is when the real healing happens. The stories I hear become seeds of inspiration. People feeling happy, balanced, in control, and ignited!

It’s not “magic”. It’s science. Chiropractic is about a balanced nervous system and tapping into the body’s innate healing ability. Don’t be fooled by Dr Maureen’s unicorn slippers. Those feet belong to a brilliant doctor!

I look forward to meeting you and to finding out what ignites you! For me, it’s- musicals,  good scotch, rainstorms, cotton candy, tiny homes, alpaca, black coffee…. and so much more 🙂

My chronic conditions have disappeared

My chronic conditions have disappeared. Weekly sessions with Dr. Maureen are like an elixir, and I can really feel the difference when I miss a week. At this point, my treatments are a tune-up and preventative maintenance. Stress in life is now manageable. Thank you for caring and doing what you do!
