Dr. Luke Schmelzle DC, M.Ed., BS

Dr. Luke Schmelzle and spouseI have always had a calling and a passion for helping others.  I consider myself a teacher.  After a career as a school principal for 25 years in various schools across the country, I embarked upon a new career as a doctor of chiropractic, another dream of mine since high school. While I loved my career in education, working with hundreds of children and families, I could no longer resist the calling of the healing arts. The time was right for a new path. I graduated from Sherman Chiropractic College, excited to share my gifts and passions with others in a new arena.  Of all the places in the world I could live and establish a practice, my wife and I fell in love with Ashland and southern Oregon.  We got here as fast as we could!

While a chiropractic student, I was introduced to Network Spinal Analysis (NSA), which is a revolutionary technique for liberating stored stress energy from the body.  I experienced profound changes in my own nervous system, peeling away layers of harmful, accumulated stress energy.  Not only did it transform my own life, but I also noticed significant changes in the lives of my family members. I experienced more ease in my life, more available energy to pursue the good things in life, and better adaptability to the stressors of everyday living.  In short, I believe that it allowed me to connect deeper with my own true self, and to connect more fully with the power of the universe.  Now I have to share this with others!

"One of the most attentive listeners I have ever met. Dr. S can truly connect in a unique manner that separates him from other Health Care professionals. Highly recommended!" Mackenzie C.

I support charities, locally and abroad, as an integral component of giving a portion of my time and talents to others. I enjoy working with children of all ages, and I encourage everyone I meet to connect with their own inner child.  I love outdoor activities and enjoy spending time with my wife and three adult children.  My passion is to assist others to live a more passionate, fulfilled, and creative life.  I love those “ah ha” moments when once what was stuck, not working, and painful, suddenly changes and opens the door for a new powerful life experience.  I am excited to work with you!
