Dr. Rachel Stummer
Dr. Rachel Stummer was born and raised in Pittsford, NY. In 2015, she graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science with a Medical Sciences Emphasis. She attended Ithaca College with the goal of playing for their women’s soccer team, but endured knee surgeries in the first season; she ended her soccer career and became very interested in the realm of conservative, compassionate healthcare in order to help herself and share this with others in the future.
She became an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer and enjoyed working with staff and faculty as her clients throughout the rest of her undergraduate program. Dr. Rachel took a gap year after graduating in order to apply to graduate schools, and took this time to work for Breathe Yoga in Rochester, and developed a love of yoga as a means of exercise, mental health, and rehabilitation for injuries. Dr. Rachel began her Doctorate of Chiropractic program with New York Chiropractic College in 2016 and graduated with honors in 2019. She also began NYCC’s Masters of Science in Applied Clinical Nutrition program, graduating in 2020.
Dr. Rachel believes in offering tools for compassionate living for her patients. She sees that when we can care for ourselves through the foods we eat, the thoughts we think, the ways we move, and the ways in which we rest, we will truly live well and with compassion. Her love of chiropractic care, gentle nutrition, and yoga practice have led her to creating this compassionate life for herself, as well as a career for helping others and seeing each patient as a whole and unique person.
In her chiropractic practice, Dr. Rachel enjoys helping patients of all walks of life, especially focusing on women’s health and pregnancy. She plans to fulfill her Webster Technique certification, as well as complete training to become a DONA Certified Doula to help pregnant women through all stages. Dr. Rachel has recently started a Yoga Alliance certified 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training and is excited to offer this area of specialty in her chiropractic treatment plans, as well as classes in the future.
In her nutrition practice, Dr. Rachel is passionate about helping people find a healthy and happy lifetime relationship with their food; she enjoys focusing on whole food nutrition, hormone disorders, inflammatory conditions, and women’s health (including prenatal and postpartum). She will be available both in-person and virtually for personalized nutritional counseling, offering short and long term programs for anyone looking to feel better both physically and emotionally.
In her free time, Dr. Rachel enjoys being outdoors, hiking and camping around the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, and the Adirondacks with her boyfriend and friends. She enjoys cooking, and loves to share her favorite healthy recipes and tips with patients. To learn more about her specialties and services click here.
