Founded in chiropractic care, Lake Pointe Chiropractic and Wellness now also draws upon an extended palette of techniques and services, and we’re proud of all the professionals who serve our patients.
|Chiropractic Care & Functional Medicine
Our four chiropractors, Dr. Carrie Getzmier, Dr. Chad Peckels, Dr. Rebecca Adamek, and Dr. Jessica Peterson are fully credentialed doctors graduating from the Northwestern College of Chiropractic. While each brings a unique passion to our practice, our doctors share the common goals of genuine balanced health for each patient, as well as a commitment to their own continued education.
All of our chiropractors bring a family practice perspective to the team. Their valuable expertise in nutritional planning and detoxification protocols help our patients with the everyday challenges of achieving balanced health. With comprehensive training in functional medicine, our experienced doctors offer the Functional Physical to analyze and interpret important bio-markers of health, determining the body’s functionality and identifying barriers to health. All four utilize the chiropractic techniques of Applied Kinesiology, Motion Palpation, and Diversified, as well as the familiar tools of the Activator, and SOT Blocking. Each also has extensive experience treating athletes and related sports injuries, allowing them to understand the unique considerations of our most physically active patients.
Dr. Getzmier, Dr. Adamek, and Dr. Peterson also share an enthusiasm for providing balanced health for woman and children and have been certified in the Webster Technique and are certified by the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association). Through their treatments, they employ Cranial-Sacral Work, the Logan Basic techniques, and perhaps equally important, a gentle touch and the nurturing support necessary to restore any related imbalances.

Wendy graduated from the 230-hour teacher training at The Yoga Center of Minneapolis in 2011, completed the Level 1 and Level 2 Adaptive Yoga Teacher Training at Mind Body Solutions in 2013, and graduated from Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute’s Level 1 Yoga Therapy program.

Having suffered from chronic pain, Wendy’s practice has evolved over the years. She has found a blend of SomaYoga Therapy and the principles of Adaptive yoga to be the most effective and is grateful to teachers Matthew Sanford, Molly McManus and Ann Maxwell for educating her how to heal herself. Wendy’s personal experience has made her passionate about working with people who are in pain or want to stay out of pain. Not only does she treasure the mind body connection her yoga practice has given her, but also treasures the connections it has given her with others and the wonderful community it provides. Her teaching style focuses on empowering and educating her students to bring their yoga practice into daily living.
I became a massage therapist in April of 2000 with the belief and thought of healing people from the inside out and educate them for a healthier life.
Over the years I have learned so many amazing things and developed the gift of healing.
The type of massage that I lean more towards is a mixture of Swedish massage, stretches, myofacial, lymphatic drainage and cranial release, and energy/healing work.
My passion is to have my client leave with a different outlook on themselves and their health.
