Dr. Shalom Samuel grew up in Chennai, India and moved to the United States with her family at the age of 12. After graduating from West Bend high school in Wisconsin, she entered the Pre-Med program at UW-Parkside and had the goal of going to medical school to become a Dermatologist. During her junior year of college, she was awarded an exceptional scholarship to go study abroad in Australia at Macquarie University for a semester. Upon successful completion, she continued her studies & graduated in 2008 with
a Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S). During her time at Parkside, Dr. Shalom was actively engaged in church activities, mission trips to Mexico and India, had leadership roles in various clubs and organizations including the Pre-Med and Biology clubs.
She first learned about chiropractic through Dr. Don Daniels, whose family she stayed with while finishing her last year at UW-Parkside. She shadowed Dr. Daniels at Daniels chiropractic office in Racine, WI and began to realize that the body has the power to heal itself and that the nervous system flows through the spine, which controls every single part of the body.
Dr. Shalom, therefore decided to go to chiropractic school rather than medical school. She graduated from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa in 2012. During her time at Palmer, Dr. Shalom provided chiropractic care to the less fortunate in the community outreach clinic. She also taught Radiology positioning, assisted clinicians with electronic health records and was the teaching assistant in the Diagnosis Department.
After graduation, she decided to move from Wisconsin in order to pursue her dream job as a chiropractor. She practiced in Arizona and California for 2 1/2 years, and then decided to move closer to family. She is trained in the Diversified technique, Thompson drop, Activator, Flexion-Distraction, and Logan basic. Dr. Shalom also uses trigger point therapy and other physical modalities to help muscles relax before and after the treatment.
Dr. Shalom has also received certification in nutrition and the Webster technique. The Webster technique is a method of analysis and adjustment for woman during pregnancy to ensure proper nervous system function and pelvic alignment allowing the baby to be in the best possible position for birth.
She has a passion to care for the whole family, so that health can be expressed at its full potential from conception and beyond. The mission of Shalom Family Chiropractic is to transform the health of our communities, one family at a time!

I have been going to Shalom Family Chiro for about two years. I have a lot of neck issues from work, and she is flexible with her schedule to get me in when needed. Dr. Shalom is always able to relieve my pain and give suggestions on how to avoid future issues. She is kind and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Shalom.

I have been suffering from migraines for many years. I only trust Dr. Shalom for her honest opinion when relating to my health. She has the awareness to know what my body’s needs, the ability to do a full-body adjustment, and provides which vitamin supplements I need. Dr. Shalom’s down earth approach makes me feel comfortable talking about my needs.
