DR. Kevin Shearer
Dr. Kevin Shearer earned his Doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2005. A Michigan native and a Michigan State alumnus, Dr. Shearer moved to Vancouver (WA) in 2007 to establish Quantum Chiropractic. He first discovered chiropractic at a high school career fair and later gained experience with the profession while working for a chiropractic office as a college student. As a child, Dr. Shearer suffered from chronic tonsillitis and was on and off antibiotics until his tonsils were finally removed as a teenager. Feeling that the cause of his problem was never really addressed, he felt an innate connection with the chiropractic philosophy of addressing the cause and not just the symptoms. Dr. Shearer is passionate about getting to the cause of patients’ problems and helping them to achieve true health and wellness.

Lucy is a firm believer that the body has a powerful natural ability to heal itself if it has the tools to do so and uses massage as an effective tool to aid in pain relief and wellness. She specializes in: Deep Tissue, Sports, Trigger Point, Hot Stone, Cupping and Lymphatic Drainage massage.
In her spare time Lucy enjoys cooking, hiking with friends, karoke, arm wrestling strippers, watching documentaries about medicine and nature, game night with the family and spending time with her husband, dog and two cats.
