Meet Our Chiropractors
Dr Julia Havis DC SpBAP
Dr Julia graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic (West) and quickly sought out practical hands on experience by taking an associate position in Singapore and becoming Webster Certified. After 5 years of growth she moved back to the USA and opened Ommabe in early 2020, focusing almost exclusively on pregnancy and pediatrics.
Since moving back to the USA she has continued to learn and increase her skills, becoming a Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner, a qualified CranioSacral Therapist (CST), a lactation specialist, and an accredited perinatal chiropractor by the ICPA. When she isn't adjusting moms and babes she relaxes with Pilates or spending time with her family traveling.
Dr Emerie Arellano DC
Dr Emerie graduated from Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) with a passion for helping babies. She is now a member of the ICPA and has continued to pursue further education in cranial work with renowned chiropractors across the country.
Dr Emerie is Webster Certified and certified to teach the Spinning Babies exercises. Her goal is to help her patients live healthily, holistically, and happy. When she isn't learning more about chiropractic and helping moms and little ones, she enjoys unwinding with her 4 Aussie fur babies or challenging herself by working out.

Spinning Babies Aware Practitioner - see below! (Spinning Babies)
Our chiropractors are on a continual quest to expand their knowledge and regularly travel to conferences and workshops to support this aim - so this list will keep growing!
Our chiropractors want all moms to have the best pregnancy possible, and to that end we make sure they are all qualified to teach Spinning Babies stretches and exercises. You can find more information about Spinning Babies here, but as a brief introduction: Spinning Babies is a natural non invasive technique used to try and encourage babies into a correct, easier birthing position. Through gentle massage and release, we help mom’s body make more room for the baby in utero, relieving pressure on both mom and baby and allowing baby to use their natural instincts to prepare for birth.
