Chiropractor, Clinic Director
Kristin Fellows D.C.
At age 10, Dr. Kristin was climbing a tree when she fell from a height of 15 feet. Facedown in the dirt with the wind knocked out of her, something was seriously wrong. She started having headaches, stomachaches, and sore joints, so her parents took her to a chiropractor to try to get some answers.
“The chiropractor examined me, took X-rays, and explained the importance of the nervous system in a way I could understand. I was immediately fascinated, and even more excited when all my discomfort went away shortly after starting chiropractic care. I knew at 10 years old that I wanted to dedicate my life to helping others through chiropractic.”
She majored in Biology at the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University. To complete her chiropractic education, Dr. Kristin attended Northwestern Health Sciences University, College of Chiropractic, graduating in 2002. She now has over 15 years of experience in practice.
Making an Impact With the Gonstead Technique
During her first year of chiropractic college, Dr. Kristin was in two car accidents that caused painful migraines. She asked around for the best chiropractor in the Twin Cities and was directed to a Gonstead chiropractor who learned directly from Dr. Clarence Gonstead and would later become Dr. Kristin’s mentor.
The Gonstead technique of chiropractic brought her overall health to an even higher level, so she knew she had to learn this technique so that she could make the same incredible impact on her patients’ health that had been made on hers.
With the same type of precise adjustments, Dr. Kristin gets to the cause of her patients’ concerns. She has a deep empathy for those in pain, and she welcomes those with difficult cases, such as neurological problems, those who have had spinal surgery, and people with special needs.

Megan Nelsen, D.C.
I'm Dr. Megan Nelsen, co-owner at Cornerstone Family Chiropractic.
My journey with chiropractic started when I was young. My mom always struggled with debilitating migraines, headaches, and neck pain. It wasn't until she saw a chiropractor that she finally got relief. My mom was fascinated by her results, so she quickly decided her kids would benefit from chiropractic, too.
I have been getting adjustments for as long as I can remember. I fell in love with health and wellness, and chiropractic was a natural career choice. I want to help people like my mom regain their health, reduce a dependency on medications, and avoid surgery.
After graduating from Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD in 2009, I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN, to pursue my education. I became a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2012.
I am a member of the International Chiropractic Association, the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society (GCSS), and the Christian Chiropractors Association. I serve as an adjunct faculty member at Northwestern Health Sciences where I bring on students as interns during their final trimesters of school.
Since getting my doctorate degree in chiropractic, I have continued my education and am passionate about pediatric and family wellness. I am known for my gentle and precise adjusting style. I welcome those who are pregnant, and I do adjustments that help with proper baby positioning. Our 5-star reviews can be found on Google and Facebook!
Outside the Office:
When I am not at the office, I love spending time with my extremely supportive husband, Seth, and my three incredible children. I treasure my family time, and we love being outside in nature. My own personal health is a top priority. I love feeling strong and healthy and am constantly learning about new health strategies! I am passionate about helping people live their happiest and healthiest lives by empowering them to take ownership over their bodies. I love digging deep with people to find the root cause of their health struggles and helping them become VICTORIOUS! My relationship with God is a big focus for me, and I often pray with patients. I have seen God do amazing miracles along with chiropractic care!
John Hemingson D.C.
When Dr. John first started under chiropractic care, he realized how unbalanced his body truly was. After a month of care, he was amazed at how much better he felt from old sports injuries and respiratory issues. For the first time in his life he began to take care of his spine through adjustments, finally realizing the vital importance of his nervous system.
Dr. John earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He continues to expand his knowledge and skills by attending seminars and learning on his own. In addition to his education, Dr. John has an unwavering commitment to live out what he recommends to others.
Empowering Patients to Stay Healthy
“I cannot expect my patients to be more committed to their health than I am.” For example, he consistently works on his posture, fitness, and muscle balance. He wants his passion for chiropractic and health to become contagious to his patients.
Dr. John’s passion is centered around EMPOWERING people to take RESPONSIBILITY for their own health.
"I want to move people from being Reactive to Proactive in regard to their health."
Enjoying a Full Family Life in Eagan
Outside of work, Dr. John enjoys spending time with his wife and their three children. He loves growing fruits and vegetables in his garden. For Dr. John, growing his own food has been a joyful experience, with lots of life lessons and shoulder-to-shoulder time with his family.
