About Us

indianapolis pediatric pre-natal family chiropractor

Stillpoint Family Chiropractic is a brain-based, family wellness center. At our practice, you will find that Dr. Mary Grace Pennella, or “Dr. P” as we call her, is in love with the healing power of chiropractic, but she is also adamant about helping her patients to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. By creating a customized wellness program for each new patient, and by using professional expertise in chiropractic, pediatrics, kinesiology, and nutrition, Dr. Pennella will use the most gentle, modern, and effective techniques to make your body function optimally, and to avoid future illness.

The origin of illness is brain stress (physical, chemical, and emotional) and the spine is connected to the brain. A chiropractic adjustment relieves stress from the body, and brings it back to balance – This is called Stillpoint!

And don’t forget the “family” part of our name. Chiropractic is safe and effective for pregnant women, newborns, toddlers, teenagers, adults, and seniors. Make an appointment for a check-up today!

Dr. Pennella returned to campus life at the age of 38 to pursue a degree in Chiropractic with a focus on upper-cervical specific adjusting, and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2000.

Dr. Pennella has also served on the board of the Italian Heritage Society of Indiana since 2005, and in 2016, she earned her certification in pediatric chiropractic.

Dr. Pennella’s passion for Chiropractic, which is obvious from having only a casual conversation with her is summed up with her own words, “there is nothing more humbling or more impressive than witnessing the power that made the body, heal the body”. Her esteemed mentors and heroes include BJ Palmer, Clarence Gonstead, Guy Reikeman, Vern Hagen, Patrick Gentempo, Christopher Kent, Bob Hoffman, Dennis Perman, Peter Kevorkian, Marty Rosen, Billy DeMoss, Leonardo da Vinci, and many more.
