Founder and Principal

Dr. Ashley Emel is a charismatic prenatal and women’s health specialist in the Columbia, Missouri area whose passion is helping families enjoy their journey without pain and stress.   She also provides care to babies giving them proper alignment to reduce colic, reflux, poor sleep, help breastfeeding issues such as proper latch and more.  Chiropractic care for mommies and babies is part of the Compass Chiropractic and Wellness Practice.  We also focus on men through the treatment of chiropractic care, nutritional health and physio therapy.  There is no issue too large or small.  We focus on getting men realigned and nutritionally balanced so they can perform at their optimal level.  We love seeing men come in by themselves or with their families.

 As a mom of 2 beautiful children and a business owner she understands the pressures that life can bring and wants to help families through them both physically and emotionally. Her journey started as young child and regular trips to the Chiropractor for her mother after they were involved in a motor vehicle accident.  After going to a chiropractic office for years and having the opportunity to work in one during high school, Dr. Ashley decided that she too wanted to help people with a natural form of health.  

 After the completion of her undergraduate and master degrees, Dr. Ashley went to Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri to complete her doctorate of Chiropractic in 2011. She started attending seminars with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA).  It was during those seminars that she had decided to specialize in Women’s Health, Pregnancy and Pediatrics.  She has since received her certification in the Webster’s Technique. 

Dr. Emel has enjoyed treating from 1 day old to a young 93 years of age in her office since opening he practice.  Her goal is to treat everyone and getting them feeling the best they possibly can.  She loves “Adjusting everyone’s health in the right direction”.
