Lotus Health and Wellness Center Welcomes New Chiropractor

Michael Shanfeld, doctor of chiropractic, has joined Lotus Health and Wellness Center, in Newtown. “We have a certain way of approaching chiropractic care and care in general,” comments Barry Shapiro, vice president of business development for the center. “We didn’t want the snap-crack kind of care. We wanted someone who was going to nurture.” Shapiro feels that he has found that in Shanfeld, who has worked as a chiropractor in Newtown for 15 years. Shanfeld specializes in the relief of migraines, wrist and ankle pain, neck issues and sports injuries. He has worked with trainers and coaches to help heal and prevent injuries.

“In sports, most injuries are caused by technique issues,” explains Shanfeld. “If you’re doing something wrong, you need to figure out what you’re doing wrong and correct the problem. It prevents you from reinjuring yourself, and the improved technique will improve performance.”

“It’s a beautiful blend that allows me to focus on what I do,” Shanfeld says of the Lotus wellness team that comprises a pediatric chiropractor, massage therapists, acupuncturists and a wellness coach that is also a registered nurse. Happy to be part of a staff that offers comprehensive care, he explains, “It brings symbiosis. Each of us focuses on what we do and helps people achieve overall health. It’s a team approach.”
