It started with a boy.
In 2008, Dr. Nareeta Stephenson opened the doors to Strawberries & Sunshine—then just a family chiropractic practice. She had young twins at home, a boy and a girl. And her son was noticeably “different”—super smart yet lacking coping skills, ultra busy and very unpredictable. He was brilliant and he was also not sleeping at night and experiencing extreme meltdowns.
Dr. Stephenson and her husband tried everything—chiropractic, counseling, nutrition, cranial sacral therapy. All of these things helped; none of them were permanent solutions. They felt hopeless. Then Dr. Stephenson took a class in Neurosensory Integration. It changed her life, the course of her practice, and her son’s health immeasurably. Her son was diagnosed with a neurodevelopment disorder, and after 6 months of implementing exercises specific to his needs, he was able to relax and his behavior improved.
He was comfortable in his body for the first time. And his nervous system calmed. Dr. Stephenson and her entire family began to work their way back to wellness. Through this, Dr. Stephenson found her calling— helping families of kids like her son find hope. So Strawberries & Sunshine evolved from a chiropractic practice to a multi-practitioner healing centre with a focus on neurodevelopment disorders and overall family health and wellness.
“We always look at the whole picture and we can tackle it all at once or break it down into pieces. We will meet you wherever you are at. Your journey is our journey. We know your road. And we also know there’s sunshine at the end of it.” – Dr. Nareeta Stephenson
