Dr. Melissa Nelson Passes Lead Role at Healing Center to Dr. Kathleen Arnold

After 37 years dedicated to the betterment of her community and her patients, Dr. Melissa Nelson is passing the lead role at her clinic to Dr. Kathleen Arnold. Nelson Healing Center will now be known as the Door County Healing Center. Dr. Nelson will remain on board seeing patients but said she looks forward to having greater freedom to follow her lifelong passion for her ministry, travel and global healing. This quest has taken her around the planet working within a community of healers known as the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.

Dr. Arnold is enthused about having the opportunity to acquire an ongoing practice. She graduated from Palmer College in 2011 with a Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science degree. Since her graduation, she has dedicated a great portion of her time to serving children, women, and families.

They will celebrate the Healing Center’s transition Sept. 21, 6:30 – 8 pm, at a special event at the clinic.

Dr. Arnold resides in Sturgeon Bay with her husband, Levi, who is also a chiropractor, and their three children.

“It is both an honor and privilege to serve the community with my colleague, Dr. Melissa Nelson,” Arnold said. “It is our combined hope that the Center will continue to represent the highest standard of care that is optimal to both the profession and to health care for many years to come.”
