Dr. Stefanie Haugen, Owner
Since 2001, Dr. Stefanie Haugen has practice chiropractic in the greater Seattle area. In 2014, Dr. Stefanie Haugen joined the DeSautel Chiropractic team and became the proud owner in 2017. Similar Dr. Robyn DeSautel, Dr. Haugen shares the philosophy that everything about healing, health and happiness comes from within.
Dr. Stefanie Haugen was born in Vancouver BC, Canada, however at a young age her family moved to Perth, Australia, where she lived until she was 12 years of age. After leaving the land of Oz, her family relocated to Eastern Canada, Mississauga, where she actively pursued competitive swimming, ice hockey and finally settling on ski racing to focus her talents.
Dr. Haugen got into Chiropractic as a young child when she ski raced on the Southern Ontario Jr. ski team and Whistler Mountain ski teams though her teen years. She innately knew that getting adjusted before and after races would help her perform better, although at that time she had no idea what chiropractic did for the body. All she knew was that it helped her be a better athlete and kept her strong, fast, and able to prevent injuries.
Dr. Haugen continued ski racing into her university years, landing a scholarship to race for the University of Nevada, Reno, where they were NCSA national champions in 1993.
The positive and direct impact that chiropractic had on her body throughout her childhood eventually inspired Dr. Haugen to become a chiropractor. She is a 2001 graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in Saint Louis, Missouri, where she enjoyed learning the very techniques that had once helped her now help families, young children and seniors get out and remain active.
In November of 2018, Dr. Haugen completed the certification process for Whiplash Injury and Traumatology which allows her to better diagnose car crash injuries.
She has additional training in SOT, Applied Kinesiology, Activator Technique, sports injuries, spinal rehabilitation, spinal decompression, whiplash injuries, functional nutrition, as well as thyroid and adrenal fatigue-related issues. She is a member of the Washington State Chiropractic Association, The League of Woman Chiropractors, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, and the FCP's Athletic TIPS Program (Towards Injury Prevention In Sports).
When not helping patients turn the power on in the practice you will most likely find her in the mountains, skiing or biking, with her two grown daughters.
